the road less tivo’d: i was there…once again…once again very, very 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!

here’s another in the line of i was there….drunk out of my mind ads…

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 the snarky funny dos equis ads i am currently running an extensive feature on. so i’m not anti-get your drink on. i’m anti-dumb@$$.

this ad  doubles as an al qaeda motivational video. they will point to our western use of time, money, resources and say….look at how these decadent fools live!   this is how you live your lives????

the commercial ends with an adolescent declaration of being witness to “history”.  a lot more people just joined al qaeda and are set to make their own history.

you should have gone to your aa meeting.
