the road less tivo’d: i was there…drunk

i suspect that tivo would not decrease my television watching time but increase it. so alas, i still watch commercials but find fewer folks to discuss them with. i often get blank looks when i ask…have you seen…..?

i realized that if i posted commercials, my audience may actually be watching them for the first time…but then we can talk about them!

alcohol ads usually take one of two paths…clever funny is one.  alcoholic behavior is the second with a possible third way being a hybrid. but most follow the play book of  “hello, i am an alcoholic…and this is my life.”

these ads are the opposite of the clever dr. pepper ads i’ve been posting and even the snarky funny dos equis ads i will be running an extensive feature on in the near future. so i’m not anti-get your drink on.  i’m anti-dumb@$$.

these ads reek of jobless i’ve got nothing better to do. the opening starts with slackers sitting on a couch brainstorming about ???? and ends with an adolescent declaration of being witness to “history”.

you should have gone to your aa meeting.

ps. third world country guy is watching with interest on the eve of 9/11. he’s getting hot.
