Did I speak too soon?
Remember when I said that Chrysler pairing with The Hunger Games equaled the worst cross-promotion ever? Well, this one might not be "worse," but it's certainly giving it a run for it's money.
I mean, the Chrysler commercial didn't feature a talking lizard walking along a beach and encountering a wedding, at least. Who the hell gets married on the beach like this, anyway? I like the beach, but I can't imagine trying to arrange a wedding on one, unless it's in a private section. Even then, there are going to be seagulls everywhere. Not to mention the sand getting in everything (and probably rendering the rental tuxes unreturnable) and it being too hot and sunny-- it just doesn't work on any level. At least these people should be wearing Hawaiian shirts.
(Oh wait, it's a "destination wedding"- one of those obnoxious ego-orgies where the couples think that they are so damned important they can force their friends to spend bucketloads of money to travel to another part of the world to watch them exchange rings and still remain their friends.)
Oh and a diamond ring+beach=several dozen people on their knees looking for a rock that doesn't look like all the other rocks. Stupid.
