This is neither an Onion sketch nor the product of SNL, believe it or not....
My favorite claim in this unintentionally hilarious commercial is that this tablet is "Holy." Um, really? I'm surprised that it isn't endorsed personally by The Almighty.
I also find it really hard to believe that anyone under the age of 60 would be caught dead holding one of these things. I mean, really- a tablet approved by the Catholic Church, pre-loaded with medieval dogma and blather approved by the Council of Nicea (and links to websites approved by---um, who exactly?) Of course, anyone over the age of 60 who is also a devout Roman Catholic probably doesn't have much use for one of these newfangled satanic internet-connected tablet doohickies anyway, so.....who is this supposed to be marketed toward?
Oh, right- crazy weirdos who can't find crosses big enough to hang from their necks and who wrap their entire lives around the big building down the street with the nice pancake breakfasts, spaghetti dinners and unmarried men who like to tell people how to walk with the ghost of a guy who may or may not have existed for 33 years 2000 years ago.
Seriously, I was dissapointed when I realized that this commercial wasn't actually a parody. Then I realized it would make an awesome addition to my blog. Silver Lining!
