Penny Arcade take on the ads. NSFW, I guess...

    Jerry: Oh, I can't begin to tell you how much I hate that commercial.

    Donna: Really? I like that commercial. (Jerry pauses)

    Jerry: You like that commercial?

    Donna: Yeah, it's clever.

    Jerry: Now wait a second, you mean the one where the guys are all standing around, supposedly being very casual and witty?

    Donna: Yeah, that's the one.

    Jerry: What could you possibly like about that?

    Donna: I don't know, I like the guys.

    Jerry: Yeah, they're so funny and so comfortable with each other, and I could be comfortable too, if I had pants like that. I could sit on a porch and wrestle around, and maybe even be part of a real bull session.

    Donna: Hey, I know guys like that. To me the dialogue rings true.

    Jerry: (Shrugs. Pause) Even if the dialogue did ring true. Even if somehow somewhere men actually talk like that, what does that have to do with the pants? Doesn't that bother you?

    Donna: (Increasingly annoyed) That's the idea. That's what's clever about it, that they're not talking about the pants.

    Jerry: But they're talking about nothing.

    Donna: That's the point.

    Jerry: I know the point.

    Donna: No one is telling you to like it.

    Jerry: I mean, all those quick shots of the pants, just pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants. What is that supposed to be?

    (Donna sighs, leans away from Jerry, looks at watch)

    cool.

    The thing is, SF show was about "nothing"... the first commercial is also about "nothing" ( sort'a )... many don't get it though. I think it's brilliant. Keeps people talking about it the least to say.
