You can sleep when you are dead. YouTube video.

What's far more interesting are all the clinched sphincters over at
winding themselves into a tizzy about how awful such commercial manipulation is. (I secretly think they *like* being "manipulated"...)
Goddamn, posting things here is like the South Park cartoon where they keep saying "Simpsons did it!" I don't read MeFi, so I am blissfully ignorant of all the minutiae and bloviating that goes on there, nor do i find said minutiae and bloviating the least bit interesting. I am, however, interested in MoFite's reactions to said video... which is why I posted it here.
I like it!
I would kill every single one of those singing motherfuckers.
And the people in the ad.
BTW, I thought the video was the cat's ass. Not all mefites are in on the knee & circle jerk, but enough are, so that when they get together on a thread, it's a hoot to see them try to 1-up each other on pseudo-intellectual smugness. They also hate sunshine and puppies.
not a slag on you
in the least, but I hate feeling like I should check what's been posted on MeFi before I post here...
YouTube is like a whole new internet. Instead of a place on my computer that holds people's blogs, or news sites, or commercial sites, or guys who dig huge holes in their backyard, there is now a place that has countless videos. I think that it is great and I welcome links to it. I don't have the time or know-how to find all of the interesting stuff on YouTube. I think this site exists so that a group of people can share things that they find to be interesting anywhere on the internet. Sure, I would kill them, too. But it was fun. Sometimes killing is fun.
Watch MeFites go crazy.
Oh, and I... uh... don't really have an opinion on the fpp. Well, I do, but uh... I didn't like it all that much. Nothing personal es el queso.
What I would do, is select a
of vids to post. Then you have a smorgasthingie.
But...what if I really
hate this commercial?
Queso: I wasn't trying to go double-postal on ya - frankly I don't care - sorry if I gave that impression. I was trying to enhance the experience by pointing and laughing in the general direction of Mefi. Maybe it's the whole "meta" think to the Nth degree which irritates people - talk about the talk about the talk about the post. Wait... that's what I'm doing... nevermind... nothing to see here...
MeFites going crazy
. Yes, they are trying to market to you.
and this is a big but, you don't have to buy the product. Kind of like religion. Or most other things when you get down to it. grah! /rant It wasn't bad, as commercials go, but it didn't really sell the product very well. I would not have made it to the end if it came on regular TV, and thusly, would have no idea what they were selling.
IDDC (I don't drink coffee) but if I did I certainly wouldn't drink this brand. But I kind of like the commercial. Using the word 'dead' in a commercial is quite daring, I guess.
Oh, don't cry el queso. I mean, it IS a pretty cute commercial. I just have an involuntary antipathy reaction to such things. I think that it's kind of odd that the commercial shows that the users of the product are a bunch of mindless zombies until they get their fix. That actually does seem sort of daring, I suppose. That's as close to "truth in adverstising" as we're likely to get.
Oh, and just to continue our one sided mefi crossover:
What the hell? This is a fucking brilliant freaky little commercial and downright daring for a corporate client. It's twisted, edgy, and amusing.

I was waiting for him to throw the coffee on the yellow people.

. I'm right there with you. Furthermore, Folgers TASTES LIKE ASS*.
Not that I know what ass tastes like, mind you. Don't look at me like that.
*[not an acronym]
I think it depends on the ass.
Folgers TASTES LIKE ASS
Never tried... that coffee either, but guess that could be a great market re-positioning concept.
I think it depends on the ass.
I hope you're talking
Either way, ew.
Damn! I lubs me some werds out of context.
MonkeyFilter: Enhance the experience by pointing and laughing .... MonkeyFilter: What's far more interesting are all the clinched sphincters over at MeFi MonkeyFilter: I think it depends on the ass. Read'em and weep, boys. Read 'em and weep.
Talking about YouTube, am i the only one who is embarrassed about liking that video with the girls lipsynching to "Hey" by the Pixies?
Mmmm pepsi brown™
This "Hey" clip
? Umm. Well it seems to have that charming visual style of amateur pornography. But
Kevin Smith gets it

i thought it was completely retarded. i can't understand why it's rated so high. i did NOT like it. in fact, morons doing whatever brainnumbingly stupid shit in front of their webcams are the number one cause of me generally skipping youtube links altogether. like the plague.
I have never understood the coffee habit. Why would anyone want to drink burnt water?
for the caffeine. hence, "you can sleep when you are dead". WORK WORK WORK; CONSUME CONSUME CONSUME!
morons doing whatever brainnumbingly stupid shit in front of their webcams
That's all I need to hear.
saved my brains from being numbed.
My god, the internet has simulteneously made it so that I no longer have to leave the house for any reason at all YET I am confrunted by obnoxiously self-aggrandizing teenagers making home videos EVERY DAY!!!
I've no idea what all the fuss is about, but that dog in the vid is a border terrier, the type of dog I will one day own. That is all.
Mort importantly: Will I sleep better when they are dead? Sorry, I'm soaking in it.
I'm currently on a seven week bicycle tour of southwestern France and I've had this flippin' song stuck in my head all morning (even went off the road once, and so was almost dead and able to sleep). Thanks,
es el Queso
, thanks a lot.
Lately I've noticed a vague coffee smell to my urine. I read that this might have something to do with drinking a lot of coffee. Who'd have guessed?
When people smell my urine they think they are smelling fresh brewed coffee, but actually, it's Folger's Crystals.
Could you top me off, Ralph?
Oh, and fill my thermos? I have a long road-trip ahead of me, good buddy.

Suddenly i feel better. Thanks Wedge! *turn off computer, runs out into sunshine*
's become one of them!!
His skin has turned a funny colour! It's not white and pasty!
Kill the unbeliever!!!
Rats, its cloudy out. Uh, so what's new around here?
StoryBored: Sorry, it's bright and sunny. You've burned your retinas. Cave dwellers can't stand the light.
It makes me want to buy a shotgun. No...a baseball bat. With nails in it. Or a machete.
