Ok, I actually watch a lot of the commercials, even though we have DVR (the best and worst thing that ever happened to TV – maybe a separate blog…). Some commercials aren’t interesting, aren’t imaginative, and aren’t fun to watch. Some commercials are boring, are dull, and are annoying. Some. But as a drama troupe member for years, and a drama troupe leader for many more years, and a lifetime class clown – short sketch comedy keeps my interest. Commercials that are interesting, imaginative, fun to watch and not boring, dull, or annoying – fit the bill.
The iPod commercials are great! The dancing, the music, people enjoying themselves, doing the whole “dancing like no one is around” thing. *** A.D.D moment, I just laughed out loud at a Buger King commercial where a guy does a rolling jump out of his car to get to the door of the restaurant without waiting to park, as his face slams into the door, a voice over says “It’s the burger you can’t wait for”, and his car rolls into a parked car – very funny.*** wait… iPod commercial, dancing, Sorry, I’m back. At the bottom of this post is one of the commercials I’m talking about.
By the way – I don’t own an iPod – the commercials are great, but the price is just too high for me… besides, no matter how great the commercials are, I have no expectation that owning one will make me a better dancer or have a better life. But watching them does give make me smile, 30 seconds at a time.
Do you have a favorite commercial?
