Have you met Perfect Polly?
Had this commercial aired during Saturday Night Live, I’d have thought it was part of the show. But it aired this afternoon on CNN. I’d have thought it was a joke if it hadn’t been on CNN. As it was, I wasn’t sure. Hard to believe some company made such a lengthy, silly commercial for such a cheap product … and then bought airtime for it on CNN. This is definitely late-night obscure-channel fare, yet there it was on CNN. Did someone screw up? Was it supposed to air?
But wait, there’s more! This is a truncated version. A minute and a half and still not the entire commercial. The full length commercial that I saw, two excruciatingly long minutes, ends with a chance to order now and get two Perfect Pollys. Naturally.
