Big Red

Verizon is Big Red?

It's a hilarious self-aware parody, and I love the kissing couple homage in the hotel lobby scenes. If you dig around, you'll find the original commercial this is based off of:

Not only is half of it a shot-for-shot remake, the music is note-for-note the same. I didn't realize (until digging around) that you can date these ads by the music (this one and that one share the music and are from the '80s, while this one is much newer, this one goes for a harder rock sound, and this one is a horrible retro abomination).

Wow, incredible weblog structure! How lengthy have you been blogging for?

you made running a blog look easy. The total look of your website is fantastic, let alone the content!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However just imagine if
you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could certainly be
one of the best in its field. Superb blog!
