Out of the Blue

I mentioned those crazy KFC ads recently in my role as occasional amateur media critic, but the round of spots from the colonel has gotten weirder since we talked about the fake food bloggers and tweaker mom. They have now introduced stupefied by pot pie guy, who says "pot pie" nine times in 30 seconds if you count the time he mouths it. He does not come off as the sharpest of tacks, unless you compare him to insane chicken wings man, who asks his friends "what's the main problem in the world today," only to reply "no" to their suggestions, one of which is actually "war." He explains that the biggest problem in the world is "imposter chicken wings," noting that you wouldn't go to the car wash to get your teeth fixed. The thing about that is, the angle of the camera seems to intentionally show off that he apparently does have his teeth fixed at the car wash.

"A high-protein diet during middle age makes you nearly twice as likely to die"

Great opening line there, "highly-lauded science journal." I stopped reading immediately. Rolleyes

1) People still watch commercials? Like, ferreals?
2) You really think about this waaaaaaaaaaay too intensely.

I was actually cheering when the line "the age of the transformers is ending" (or the like) came up...

I have to admit I had some nostalgia tingles when I saw the original mack truck from the series. After that it was standard Bay.

Pot Pie == Marijuana Pie??

'Cos that would be like, amazing...

That would simultaneously create and relieve food cravings leading to a paradox that would make one go insane. Or something.

That's why I never buy chicken at a pizza place or a fish sandwich at a roast beef place.

if i were a conspiracy theorist, i would conclude that Blue is now a shill for KFC. let me cite my evidence: that's twice now he's made an extensive post about KFC, including multiple links to their ads, all in the guise of stupefied dismissiveness. yet if you subscribe to the theory that there's no such thing as bad press, the inescapable conclusion is thusly that he's just trying to get eyes and minds on some mediocre deep fried battered poultry.

...if i were a conspiracy theorist ;-D
