This commercial for a car has a jogger run into the car, not once but twice, because it’s not noticable? Looks like it hurt a lot to me.
I am watching the baseball playoffs (multitasking as I write this) and baseball players sure are superstitious. Keep cutting away to the players in the sox bullpen playing the spoons like madmen on the bullpen ceiling. Good thing their stolen stuffed parrot was given back by the frat boys at Northeastern who stole it.
The superstious talk reminds me of a triple header issue commercial that had the potential of spinning out of control. It was a baseball commerical for Pizza Hut using Orel Hirsheiser, nine 10-year old baseball players and a black cat. The black cat got spooked when one of the kids yelled and went sprinting accross the baseball field but the trainer cat him before he got away. This was the worst of it but it reminds me of the old saying about the problems of filming kids or animals. Try filming those two ingredients together then add a sports star with very little on-camera presence (he was a lovely charming guy) and many sane people would have run for the hills. Commercial was cute but hardly memorable. The kids were doing all the superstitious baseball stuff that kids and adults do.
