I want a miniature giraffe.

I often wonder what is going through the heads of ad folks when they do this stuff. I imagine a table full of people going.." what makes me think of tv? hey I know... let's have a tiny giraffe...and he can KISS it." "Great idea marvin, great idea..pretty soon you will have your own office. keep it up"
Whereas I wonder what's going through their bloodstream. :coffee:



I want a giraffe too.

I find it disturbing that Russians are promoting American Direct TV. Even the v/o at the end is some Russkie vodka swiller. Then there's the genetically engineered giraffe and the cloned hot babe servants.

It's a little more Mengele than I'm comfortable with.

Well, there are two parts to the equation; the dope smoking creative arts kids and whatever they come up with and the customer that says "Dude! Let's go with that!!!"

I get one side. I don't get the other.

most of this stuff is copying things off of the internet....like the quiznos commercial with the kittens...these are just copies of the "I haz cheezeburgerz" thing...

there are a lot of eastern european/ukranian internet jokes...have you seen Europtrip when they go into Bratislava and the guy is talking about "Miami Vice number one new show!"

I think the new trend is they see what is hot on the internet and go with that...which isn't necessarily a bad thing....

Well, sometimes that lame-osity is the client's idea. The ad dudes hold their nose and try to polish the turd, but at the end the customer gets what he wants.

Mythbusters DID polish a turd.



I also like saving zee money.

You may be on to something.
look at the genetically cloned dog, the chihuahua, that was real cool when the first one came out, and now we have mexicans running all over the place.

could the giraffe be some sort of evil plot to reproduce the flow of border crossers on our Alaskan shores? Will Russians be swimming over next?

(even though Chiuahuas are most likely from China)

I told my husband that I want a tiny giraffe on a pillow so I can give it kisses and giggle. He thought I was nuts until he saw the commercial. But seriously, I want one!

I think I'd rather have a full size giraffe that I can train to reach things in high places and trim my tree branches.

Leave it to vrai to take something beautiful and turn it into the hired help. First you make the cats work for a living controlling the yard pests, then you make toppick the golf ball collector and now this, you're such a slave driver.
