Yeah I saw that commercial from the link on the Morning News. It’s so funny. However, I think its run time is too long for it to actually air on TV. Brilliant ad nevertheless.

Ach. Good ads (especially the Budweiser one). But will someone please tell me what song is being played at the end of the Starbuck’s yawn ad? Not being able to remember is driving me mad.

What’s so fuckin’ great about television? God damn it, Jason, you need to get out of the city. C’mon, man, we’re all here doin’ it fer Christ’s sake!

I like the piñata one too.

DonatoFeb 10, 2004 at 5:20AM

Feel so great that you’ll make horrible, rash decisions.

peter/ryan: also featured on the ‘snatch’ soundtrack, when gorgeous george goes down against mickey…

i’m not sure how jamming papers under your shirt and undoubtedly causing several paper cuts on your abdomen can facilitate the birth process. still funny, tho.

“babies everywhere!” that’s worth a giggle. peter/unmute, thnx for the “name that tune” answers.

One of the best commercials and freakiest that I have ever witnessed. Bookmarked for life.

The time has come for commercials to become surreal just to make a memorable impression. I am all for art.

Unfortunately, they’ve now made it password protected.

For those that missed it, I’m temporarily hosting it here.

I LOVE YOU ADRIAN

Mahalo Adrian—I sent it out to few close friends. What struck me most was the post-broken hand swagger—reminded me of Kevin Spacey/Kaiser Sose in Usual Suspects.

There must be a bittorrent link for this.

JustinFeb 11, 2004 at 4:34PM

Thanks Adrian? Anyone have any of the other QT files?

donald tettoFeb 11, 2004 at 8:36PM

Maybe they unpassworded it? I can access all the commercials just fine.

Lester NelsonFeb 13, 2004 at 8:22AM

I’d post the QT files, but I’ve already topped 112 GB of transfer for this month. If anyone wants the movies, they can email me. I download most every ad I find.
