You know those television commercials where the kid soaks the entire kitchen in Kool Aid or pulls a dead, muddy beaver through the kitchen or whatever, and the mother just crosses her arms, gives a little smile and pulls out a roll of paper towels, like that’s going fix her shithead kid? You know how stupid that is?
That’s how stupid this post is going to be.
I shouldn’t be writing anything at all because I promised myself I wasn’t going to. I just had a lot of extra things to do this week, not the least of which was my very first live, online video course!
Tonight is the last class, a live question and answer session with me. I love doing it but it is tiring having to look good for precisely 1 hour a day. Do you have any idea how hard it is to look good in a dark kitchen with nothing but a laptop camera? Yeah. Think of how good you ever think you look in a selfie or on Skype. Bleh.
So I haven’t had time to come up with a scintillating post idea, but what I DID have time to come up with was this … an example of good advertising. As opposed to the stupid paper towel ads.
And here’s an old commercial that’s good.
Remember her? Hallie Eisenberg? Eisenberg sound familiar to you? Her slightly older brother is Jesse Eisenberg who played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. More interesting than all of that? Their mother is a professional clown. Red nose and all.
Look, I told you this post was gonna be stupid and I do apologize. But if I didn’t put any post up you’d either assume Cuddles had died, there had been a family tragedy or I’d eaten myself into a stupor and was in need of help.
None of these things are true. And just so you know, don’t any one of you ever try to stop me from entering an eating stupor. Next to a traffic jam prior to a yearly physical exam it’s one of my most favourite places to be.
