AND NOW, A WORD FROM OUR SPONSORS
What ever happened to the Santa that rode around on a Norelco shaver? Even though it's annoying and stupid, I haven't seen it on TV to remind me how annoying and stupid it is. And why would Santa ride on an electric shaver, anyway? If he's got a beard that's long and white, wouldn't Santa be staying away from facial skin shavers?
While I'm at it, somebody should throw the old Coca-Cola commercial on TV. You know, the one from the 70's where we would like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. That's a Christmas commercial, isn't it?
Maybe I'm not watching much TV this holiday season, but one thing I haven't seen (and don't miss) are the eighty-billion cell phone commercials. Santa on a cell phone. Elves on a cell phone. Reindeer on a cell phone. Wouldn't you like to own a cell phone too? (Be a Pepper, Drink Dr. Pepper...) Anyway. Maybe everybody has one now, so cellphones are old news.
Holiday commercial that makes me laugh -- The guy who is trying not to make the same mistake he did last year when he bought his wife a treadmill. She opened it up, shot him the look of death and said, "So, you think I'm FAT?" Heh.
I'm anxiously awaiting Super Bowl ads. It's half the reason I watch the game to begin with. Plus, I can't wait to see my first Survivor All-Star ad. It's like robins in springtime. I'm hoping they will feed us Survivor in February-March, Amazing Race in May-June and Big Brother in July-September. Reality crack. That's what it is.
More later. Work calls.
