Carmax, etc. make sure that there's no escape
The whole country has come to a nearly complete stop-- but the advertising industry is apparently running on all cylinders these days. It seems that almost every single commercial out there uses the current pandemic in its pitch- which means that almost every single commercial out there is a brand-new, fresh out of the oven product designed to remind us that there are companies out there that are well aware we are living in bizarre times and that THEY CARE VERY DEEPLY ABOUT US DURING THESE BIZARRE TIMES.
I'm convinced. Over the last few days ordered from DealDash, Seven-Eleven, KFC, PapaJohns AND Domino's, doing my part to keep the economy going and gaining 26 lbs in the process (no problem, my Peloton bike is on its way and I plan to switch to Arbonne shakes next week.) My doorbell rings approximately every six minutes, and I'm going to spend the next sunny day constructing an addition to my house out of cardboard. It just feels so good to be contributing to all these companies that care.
And now that Carmax will deliver a vehicle to me with just a few clicks, well, that's definitely next on my list. I only hope that I can stop with just one. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to wave out my window to the delivery guy again. What a time to be alive.
