Perhaps I am too cynical these days; when I see a flash mob, this tends to capture my thoughts rather well.

Though of course, the final answer is to the question there is "for the internet."

One of those things is not the same.

Women in brides maids dresses en masse have always frightened me. Some repressed awful memory, probably. I thought the brief close-up on the unhappy hipster was good...But in the end...a commercial? A crummy commercial? Son-of-a-bitch!
Happy Holidays to you, too, T Mobile.

Yeah great, I'll remember that next time I see red over the universal access charge and other add gouging to my cell phone bill. I did like the fat chick though.

Fat folks need love too. Of course when she goes home for the holidays she lives in two zip codes

As long as we are on the subject here is one of my all time favorite Xmas commercials:

Walmart/Coke Commercial (Stock Up on Joy)

When you "Stock Up on Joy" There is enough to go around.

Normally, I loathe Christmas music, except for Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer, but I have gotten into this one this year:

"Last Christmas" (I gave you my heart) (Glee Cast)

OK, I'll mellow out a little. It was nice.

But no match for this:

Well, I got a big kick out of this. Thanks, Gerard.

Whooee, home for the holidays for the large one is big helpings of black-eyed peas and pone.

You don't want to be between her and the table.

It's kind of blatantly obvious that in the early part, when they're showing all the lithe & svelte ones doing the little saucy skip-&-prance type moves, they don't give you even one good look at one of the heifers doing such moves.

I'm glad Deutsch Telecom found a way to spend all the money they got from me.

If that biggun prances and skips, tsunami alerts will go out world wide.

Well, it worked for me.

Love those women, no matter the shape or size.

Ahhhh, what Robert Crumb could do with that.
