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.
