*shudder*

Ugh. Is it too early for a scotch?

mike said...

Any questions?

Yeah, just one... Did your parents have any kids that weren't idiots?

"This is your brain on hope"

Here endeth the lesson.

I though it was a joke... Until the end.

That's some scary stuff there.

Michael Hawkins said...

Scary?
I thinks it's hillarious!

I feel like I just swallowed a bottle of Ipecac.

No, I totally understand where they are coming from man. Every day I wake up and HOPE there's somebody else to vote for.

Seriously, and entire commercial that says: "Vote for Obama because we HOPE he'll be a decent Prez"???

What are they smokin' and not sharin'?

Better yet, did their parents have any children that lived?

What's great is how all of them look like they woak up on a couch somewhere before the shoot.

I'm betting more than half of these people won't show up on election day....or be so stoned they show up on the WRONG day....or place.

Hhehehehe

Actually, when it comes to Obama, we ALL have hope. The guy just oozes hope out of every pore. Every last one of us should have hope.

What kind of hope?

It's the hope that Barack doesn't completely screw up this nation with his hopey-changey message and his warmed over communism. It's the hope that despite our misgivings about McCain, that he might actually pull this one out. It's the hope that Congress might put the brakes on destructive policies (not that they've ever done it before). It's the hope that we'll wake up and learn this has all been a bad dream.

Yes, I have hope.

Hope became a bad thing when it replaced sound reason.

I hope that my taxes won't increase. Logic tells me that just isn't going to happen.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
Your brain on hope is a chicken?
Did they empty out a rehab center to get all the buggy-eyed developmentally arrested adults to appear in this shoot? Did no one on the set have a brush or hair spray?
As a parody, I give it an A. As an actual commercial, I think I've produced wedding videos that were less emotional and more fact-filled.

Now I know why Tigers eat their young.

I have nausea.

Mike W. said...

Unfortunately I've got no sound so I can't really watch it.

Am I going to laugh or barf?......or both?

DJK said...

Oh, a cute widdle chickey!!! I guess I'll vote Obama then.


NO CHANCE IN HELL.

What about Hope for the end of the pointless and Illegal war in Iraq, that after the war, our tax dollars can provide health care for ALL americans instead of subsidizing big corporate lobbyists and into the pockets Dick Cheney, Halburton shareholders and the weapons industry?

I hope for a political party thats Fiscally Conservative... Don't tell any republican president or congressman that the amount of federal money spent should be the same as the amount taxed. Notice how the blue years compare to the red years.

Will someone hold my hair up while I puke? It's gonna take a while.

I'm pretty sure that one of those guys played Shaggy in the two Scooby Doo movies. Can't get any better than that...

And Mr. Anonymous-- If the ad had stated that, some of us might have been able to keep our lunches down.

The point is that the ad just wants us to believe in "Hope"-- not for anything specific, mind you. Just hope.

And as far as your points go, yeesh... illegal war in Iraq. Haven't we moved past that? A Democrat-majority House seems to not think it's illegal, so why should I?

TOTWTYTR said...

It's self parody without realizing it's parody.

Obama doesn't even rise to the level of empty suit, he's just a hole in the air.

The reason that you should think the war in Iraq is illegal Ryan is because of what our great country did! (with the most powerful army in the world). We invaded foreign soil without provocation, we demolished the infrastructure, government, and civilization under the false pretenses of national security. We assassinated the legal (but ruthless) dictator, and we killed hundreds of thousand of innocent civilians (collateral damage).

With great power comes great responsibility. When Obama is commander in chief, BUSH needs to be arrested and put on trial at the Hague, the US should pay reparations by sending billions of dollars worth of engineering and materials to rebuild Iraq better than it was.

If they still want to blow each other up after that, thats on them.

Hey, anonymous?
We might take you more seriously if you had balls enough to use your name. (Staying on topic might help too. This post was not about the war, not about Bush, not about fucking health care.) Continue to be a pest and you'll get deleted.
