    For Godsake will someone explain this stupid ****ing commercial to me!

    [url]www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9Wx7BV8Ogs[/url]

    Do I understand this correctly?

    Manly woman who looks like Garry Shandling bought a dress.

    Husband wants to go on vacation with saved bonus points from credit card account.

    Block-headed woman announces they can't go on a vacation because she spent all the points for a vacation [B]on a single frigging dress[/B].

    Husband is pleased with this and is going to go upstairs and make love to blockhead just as commercial ends.

    Am I missing something?:dunno:

    I find the whole thing upsetting and it seems to be on every five minutes.

    I love this commercial. Mainly because of the song. And the woman isn't bad looking at all.

    I dunno.

    She has a kind of Gina Davis/Julia Roberts vibe going on.

    Saw Shandling on Bill Maher last eve, btw. (I wanted to be infuriated)

    Theres all sorts of stuff going on with his mug. I cant put my finger on it, but he's morphing into something. bizarre

    This commercial always bothers me as well. I can never get past the husband's beaver teeth. Check 'em out at the end of the spot when he smiles. It looks like he had the dental work done in the Sudan.

    BTW, "Horse Gal" in the ad is Molly Culver, who played Tasha Dexter on Pam Anderson's TV show, [I]VIP[/I]. Here's a better, though not great, shot:

    I think we go with the operant conditioning program (punishment rather than reinforcement driven) soon. I get chastised nightly by my wife--who's in the ad world--for ripping apart commercials and anything else which appears on our TV. Although most of my criticism is humor based, I am about as cynical and jaded as a person can be.

    The whole commercial thing is just so bizzare. We don't see it because we were raised with them, but in the future, historians will look at these 30 second clips of bizzaro world and say WTF?

    The one which drives me to throw objects into walls is the Glade spot with that redhead who must have gigantism. At the end of the commercial she nods to the camera (almost winking) and says, "And, yes, it's Glade." Yeah, let's put more toxic, vile smelling garbage in our homes. Here's a hint: Clean your f**king home--and wash your a$$ once in a while--so it doesn't stink so much you need this crap to cover it up.
