The beauty of the DVR is that you can skip past the commercials. With a press of the fast forward button, that hour-long episode of Grey’s Anatomy becomes 40 minutes. When I do DVR a show, I like being able to skip the commercials, but honestly it doesn’t bother me to watch a show live. That’s how I watched TV for the first twenty-five years of my life, so it’s all good.
And by not skipping commercials, I get to discover commercials that I love that become part of pop culture. For instance, a few months ago, I kept seeing people posting about the Sun Drop commercial on Twitter. I had no idea what they were talking about, but it was on my radar. I could have looked it up on Youtube, but that requires effort and we can’t have THAT, can we? Psshh. Anywho, I finally saw the commercial and I got excited and felt like I was one of the cool kids. I love the ad because it’s soooo ridiculous and has a cool song.
Anywho, I have a new favorite commercial. I crack up every time I see it. I stop what I’m doing so I can give it my full attention.
I love the guy’s passion. He is READY. You know he practiced the moves at homes after rehearsal every night. And the looks of disdain on his fellow flash mobbers’ faces? PRICELESS.
Hooray for great commercials? Do you like commercials or find them annoying?
