I love our neighborhood for many reasons, but one thing that I absolutely adore is the abundance of local commercials on television. I don't know if this is a regional thing, but what I'm referring to is these ads of wretched quality that look as though they were shot on a budget of twelve dollars with a video camera from 1992. The local commercial I am about to show you is...well, by FAR the "best" (i.e., most hilariously awful) of the bunch.
Much like the Pale-Headed Brush Finch of Ecuador, however, the commercial is very rare indeed. When I'm lucky enough to catch it, it's never in its entirety, and it's nowhere to be found online. BELIEVE ME, I HAVE TRIED TO FIND IT, and publicly lamented the fact that I had failed.
Until now, people. UNTIL NOW. Fortuitously, I had my Flip out because I was working on something for a friend, and was juuuuust shutting it down when I caught an airing of the commercial. I hit pause, snatched the video camera back up, and finally, FINALLY captured the most amazing thing to ever hit the airwaves 'round these parts. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
(DO you also have godawful local commercials? Links, people. I NEED LINKS!)
