Yes, there's actually a sequel to this ad. You know, for hopeless losers or people with commercial blogs
I figured out that if you edited out all the times this guy stutters unnecessarily or repeats himself as if he doesn't think that the two ugly morons standing right there heard him the first time, this minute-plus commercial would be about 30 seconds long- and be the normal painful experience we are all used to.
Instead, it really does play out like it thinks that the audience is hooked by the cutting-edge comedy and Neil Simon-level banter and will demand more if it doesn't reach something resembling a satisfactory, unrushed conclusion. You know, like the drooling morons who live vicariously through the lives of television commercial actors.*
I really can't see myself bothering with Part II- I doubt it reaches the level of wit we hear in lines like "No...not....not 12 thousand...12.....12......" So it would just be a letdown. Besides, I've got this plate of glass shards I'm sure I would enjoy jamming into my eyes slightly more than watching even one more second of this.
*Check out the solitary comment on YouTube. I bet this guy's parents are sooooo glad he posts under a fake name.
