A certain commercial for tourism in Mexico has been airing on and off in the US for abot a yyear now. A man working in a corner office in a hich rise building gets a call from some jubilant friends. After talking to them for a second, he says “wait a minute; I have an idea.” He calls his secretary, and isssues a command; “Susan, get me two tickets to Mexico!”
Two tickets to Mexico.
Most commercials are dumb, but there’s always some that seem just … well, completelt and totally unrealistic, because they portray supposedly real-life scenarios that would never, ever happen in real life. For example, the EXTREME! interracial basketball game in the ghetto; a Buick speeding on a twisty mountain road; a group of perky senior citizens all riding electric scooters; or a square-jawed thirtysomething executive stepping out of a skyscraper and striking a pose, staring upwards optimistically into the distant sky. What else have you noticed?
