WOW! You can't make this stuff up!
« on: February 12, 2014, 11:01:37 PM »
LOL!  Anyone just saw the CarMax commercial that ran during the Olympics?  :?

They have a "random" assortment of people clapping for the person who purchased their new car.

Not sure if we should be flattered that they were kind enough to include a Beekeeper...Or, offended that apparently NO ONE on the entire set realized the guy was wearing the veil backwards! :lau:

I saw this commercial and got very excited, but I never saw the veil backwards. Probably went by to fast.

Is there an Emoticon for that?
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

I can see how people can get confused about how to TIE a veil, but it is SO obvious it's on backwards even if you never saw one before...

It's really kind of insulting, in a way. Think about it. They wanted to reach out to us so that we would use their service, but they didn't care enough to do 5 seconds of research to see how to put on the equipment. Anyone on set could have "googled" or "binged" an image on their smartphone. Sloppy.

FYI, I was making a joke. Got to thinking about it and thought that my humor may not have came across  8-)
