Hey, McDonald's? I've never cared about anything less
Just imagine- thousands of idiots with absolutely, positively nothing left to do (now that the AFLAC duck's online "recovery" is complete) rushing to the web (who am I kidding, they were probably already there) to find out who stole Flacco's bag of grease from McDonald's.
Now try to get that image out of your head. Yes, we are a very sad country. A very sad, bored, listless, fat country filled with people with no plans for today, tomorrow or the foreseeable future. A country constantly looking for something to kill the time, all the time. A country so pathetic that we respond to commercials which ask us to "See the whole story at..." or "learn the rest of (insert name of stupid boring loser here's) tale at..." or "find out what happens next at.." no matter how insipid and pointless the segment we were "treated" to on television was.
I'm not going to be checking out the site, because I can't imagine my life being so devoid of meaning that I would care which NFL player (because duh, we know it's another NFL player) stole the fried crud. This commercial lost me the moment Flacco got talked into playing for junk he had already purchased. I mean, why would anyone do that?
Oh yeah, I forgot. It's a commercial for McDonald's. I think if it makes sense, it's not allowed on the air.
