And so the blitz begins. A week before Halloween
I started to see a commercial for a certain big electronics
store. In the spot a man in a red scarf is not "elfin'" around
[Their words not mine..] when it comes to shopping for gifts.
I decided to count how many times I encounter the spot before
its really the holidays. So far since the last week of October I
counted 23 airings. As soon as I see the bald head and the red
scarf I count it as one and change the channel. I detest commercials
and always have another show, usually a sporting event to fill in the
air time. So just a glimpse of the spot I'm counting. All the while
chuckling to myself . The Houston Ballet's production of the nut-
whacker spot has it beat probably 5 to 1. No wonder people go,
they're brainwashed. Enjoy the set.
