Just so y'all don't think I've given up blogging, I wanted to let you know that I've had a weird medical issue arise lately. Let's just say abscess + inner thigh = bad times. Apparently these nasty things can just develop and make your life hell. Anyway, I just had minor surgery to slice the demon lump open yesterday, and it bothers me to sit at the computer for a long time because of where it is. Hopefully I will have lots of fun celeb stuff to talk about when I get back into the groove. In the meantime, I'll be riding the percocet wave. If anyone doesn't already know, percocet is faaaabulous.

I had to comment on possibly the most ridiculous commercial I've ever seen...mostly because I've seen it about 10 times in the past couple of weeks.
I'm pretty sure it's for Firestone or Bridgestone. It's for tires. I think it's Firestone because they play that song that goes, "and the wheel goes round and round....". In trying to find info about this commercial, I only discovered that Roseanne Cash sings that song. More trivia for my pea brain. I couldn't find anything about the commercial itself or any screen grabs, which is unfortunate for those of you who haven't actually witnessed it. It really has to be seen to be believed.
It's a tire commercial, ok? There are couples - I think 2 or 3 couples - dancing provocatively in the rain. When the commercial starts, it appears to be for men's cologne or some new nightclub. The hot, wet, good looking couples continue to bump and grind as their clothes cling to their perfect bodies and then...we see the tires. It's a tire commercial. Did I say that? Yeah, it's a tire commercial.
How low have we sunk as a society that it takes sex to sell a necessary component of a car?? Is there anyone driving around out there with no tires, screeching down the highway in a dazzling display of fiery sparks, refusing to invest in tires until the Firestone ad execs come up with saucier promos? What's next? Actors dry-humping to bad R. Kelly songs in an effort to sell home security systems? The Maytag man getting it on with the lonely housewife who spends all day Swiffering? A hot, buff pool boy running in to rescue the lady who fell and can't get up?
