Good Carma

I'm hitting the open (except for 8 bajillion pounds of Memorial Day traffic) road this weekend!  Heading up north for some Memorializing Days.  Going rustic.  Getting my hick on.  Much like this happy couple:
 

Reasons I love this ad:
1.  I love this song and it reminds me of Juno, one of my all-time fave movies.
2.  The fox reminds me of my dog, Allie (a Sheltie- all Shelties look a little foxy I think.)
3.  He takes her shoe shopping?  Hot.  Guys?  You should ALL take your ladies shoe shopping on your first date.  Then later, if animals pop out of your facial hair?  It will be enduring rather than date-ending.
4.  Who doesn't love baby birds?  I'm reminded of The Twits by Roald Dahl.  Mr. Twit always had stuff stuck in his beard and incidentally his favorite meal was bird pie.  He was despicable.  But he never took his wife shoe shopping either.
5.  I'm so happy car companies are moving forward (pun intended) in the advertising department.  Remember how lame they all used to be?  It was car after car driving down a curvy road, usually on a mountain.  Nobody in Michigan can relate to that!  But bagging a river trout?  That's an idea we can get behind (without a doubt!)
6.  I think their next commercial should be a Beach Boys remix of "Help Me Rhonda," but instead sing, "Help me Honda."
7.  My numerical list is getting out of hand.  Let's just give the Hybrid a Hyfive and be done.
8.  Happy Memorial Day!  I hope your long weekend is full of minimal traffic, maximum relaxation, and awesome commercials.

I'm a hick too. Love this commercial. And the song. And JUNO. Oh my lawd, how I love Juno. And that song at the end, that they sing, what's the name . ..Anyone else but you. . . .Aaaah. . . .love that. made me want to be a knocked up 16 year old, and then I came to my senses because I realized I could just download the song and not have the drama of being 16, unmarried and a kid.

I have a list of ads that I used to love but cannot stand. I am a huge cycling fan and watch the Tour De France everyday in July. Apparently Versus didn't sell a lot of ads this year, so we watched the same ads over and over.

Great blog. I found you in the MBC group Personal blogs.

Aw GVAT! Thank you for noticing my absence! :) Ad Bits is on (permanent?) hiatus. I'll let you know for sure if and when it makes a comeback! :)

Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website wants rather more consideration. I’ll most likely be once more to read rather more, thanks for that info.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to understand a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
I think that you can do with some percent to drive the message home a
little bit, however instead of that, that is excellent blog.
An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.

Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you
know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
