There is absolutely dick-all going on in the world of TV today, so to pass the time here’s an Old Spice commercial that hit the Web last week. It’s a shame that Old Spice didn’t shell out a measly $3 million to air this during the Super Bowl, because this would’ve been the talk of the Internet the day after. I’m not trying to shill for Old Spice or anything, I’m just saying that it’s refreshing to watch a commercial that’s clever and funny and doesn’t make me want to douse advertising executives in gasoline and shoot Roman candles at them.
Of course, technically, I’d rather light ad execs on fire than watch good commercials. But watching good commercials won’t land you in hot water with the tight-ass court system. Excuse me, your honor, but I hardly see how setting someone on fire for your personal enjoyment is attempted murder. Isn’t there a lesser charge of “person-arson” or something?
