A Great Best Buy Commercial
I don’t watch much TV. But I happened to see this commercial (twice) while watching the latest episode of Archer on FX. I think this was one of those overly-hyped Super Bowl ads that get as much press as the latest super-flop multiplex comedy/action pic/Oscar nominee often gets.
I don’t know. I don’t care. I don’t pay attention to that sort of meta-promotion.
I may not be exactly certain what this ad is pushing (and they even make fun of how confusing this whole thing is), but I haven’t been this entertained – and meta-entertained – by a commercial in years. This is utterly hilarious on many levels…and it gave me a new-found respect for Justin Bieber (guess who "I don't know, kinda looks like a girl" is?), Ozzy Osbourne and Best Buy, where I already spend far too much money.
