“We’ll be right Back!”

Commercials!  Don’t you just love hate tolerate …whatever?!  I mean really?

You are watching your favorite show and every 15-20 minutes you “lose” 5-7!  Argh!  Just think what all the “Walking Dead” could do in those extra 12 minutes or so.  The only exception on a consistent basis is those beloved Superbowl commercials!  This last time I don’t think I even watched the commercials.  Were you wondering like I might have that they could have done ALL the commercials while the power was out!!!? (I understand next year’s Superbowl will be sponsored by Motel 6 – they keep the lights on for you)

Anyway, I have started enjoying online streaming more and more, especially because the commercials are short and sweet.  I mean, 30-60 seconds every 15-20 minutes isn’t bad.  You can, actually, sit and enjoy the entire show.  “Pause” is available if you must go somewhere for a minute or two.  I know all these people love watching TWD on AMC but you have to purchase a package with that station and it has commercials, right?  I get the season on sale on Amazon.  It’s one day behind and it’s not that much.  Besides, if I read it right, I own the season now, so I can watch it later.

Growing up was different.  Only 4 stations to watch and the commercials had wonderful jingles and were cute and funny.  Sis and I were always joining in to help the other “sing” a commercial or say the slogans.  Today’s commercials are often very funny, but they simply don’t have the same “Zing” as the old ones.  Like these (8-9 min collection):

What started all of this?  Well, I was reading one of the blogs I follow, Joe C Combs 2nd for today, and saw the ad that appears in the box after most of the blogs.  You know which one I am talking about?  Right at the end.  It doesn’t run unless you click and, usually, I don’t.  But, for some reason today I did.  I laughed pretty hard and enjoyed this one enough to find it on YouTube.  You can enjoy it here, the Green Housewives:

Do you have a favorite old commercial?

How about a new one?

Just me being nosy.

Namaste,

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
