We Pause For A Word From Our Sponsor

Two commercials have caught my eye today. (The opthamologist says the patch should come off by next week.) One is for the US Postal Service, illustrating the various things that they'll deliver the mail in spite of... sleet, rain, hail, temporary loss of gravity, giant cranky robots made from discarded washing machines, and black holes that suck up the entire universe.

For some reason, this just gives me the willies deluxe. It's gotten so I can't watch the end of the commercial anymore, it creeps me out. I like the giant, cranky robot, though.

The second commercial is for Coors. For some reason the Coors corporate office decided it would enhance their image to be associated with the king of white trash, Kid Rock. Gak.
Coors is the butt of one of the GM1's and my oft-quoted joke. We call Coors sex-in-a-canoe beer.

Because it's fucking close to water.

I'll never forgive Coors for using "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" in its latest ad showing X-crazy snow freaks cavorting in thin air at high altitude.

Then again, Michael MacDonald singing the same song for MCI doesn't do it much better justice.

Reminds me of Olympia. "It's the water, and that's about it"

I guess my favorite Coors commercial is one long forgotten....bunch of people sitting around in a bar and one guy starts singing "Rocky Mountain High." From John Denver to Kid Rock? Arrrgh!
