So is Miller trying to co-opt shotgunning? I may have missed these ads.

No, this is just a can design with a punch-hole on the top. I think some brand actually did have something like shotgun cans at one point though where you could pop open a second hole on the side.

A phone would really be the worst kind of camera to use when you're falling through the air and then deploy your parachute causing you to decelerate quite quickly, really any camera that had a strap or a grip or anything else that's easy to grasp would be a major step up from a thin smooth tablet that people tend to drop just walking around.

It's supposed to allow the beer to flow out of the hole easier. Doesn't really make much sense when you're drinking out of the can but it helps a little when you're pouring it out.

It's giving me flashbacks to my youth ( ) when things like Hawaiian Punch came in a sealed can that you had to punch your own holes into. Had to put two holes in the top on opposite sides to get it to pour out properly.

I know for a fact that Juicy Juice had those exact same cans up to at least 2006. I was given a bunch of them while I was a poor college student. Blew my mind.

I was thinking the same thing, bro. I rarely watch Comedy Central, but I was in a hotel room and had it on in the background recently, and that loving commercial came on literally every break, sometimes twice. There should be laws against this poo poo.

I can't decide whether the horrible cut to the chorus or the entire car singing extremely off key is the worst part. I want every Honda I see to crash because I imagine some horrible a capella version of an 80s metal song being belted out by its occupants.

It's the whole thing. The whole commercial is the worst part.

This is truth. I've lived in California for about 13 years now, and I'm still completely blown away by the fact that In-N-Out is consistently amazing every single time. No matter which one I go to, the burgers start out as the best I've ever had at a chain and only get better from there (especially if the buns are toasted and they're generous with the grilled unions). I always get 'em without the spread, and it takes like a meaty, lettucey, tomatoey, cheesy bite of heaven. Every. Single. Goddamn. Time.

Zips was the best thing about Spokane, and so was Dicks burgers. Nothin like a greasy bag of dicks!

I lived about 5 minutes away from the Dick's on 45th when I was going to UW and miss that place like crazy. One of my roommates and I actually met Dick Spady (the place's namesake) for some class research and the man was a saint. Gave us a bunch of free food coupons too. The only problem with Dick's is that you can really only eat like two cheeseburgers before you start feeling horrendously ill. It's rad that they refuse (refused? I haven't been home to Seattle in years) to use any sort of POS terminal to calculate the totals for your order, though. It's all done in their head, and holy poo poo is the service there fast. I guess they have to be when literally hundreds of drunk college kids show up around last call.

There are two, Major League Lacrosse (outdoor) and National Lacrosse League (indoor).

The players in the commercial are happy to see the sport becoming more and more popular with kids because up until the last 5-6 years, it wasn't a sport most people had the chance to try until college, or possibly high school. Now it's showing up everywhere, and really exploding at the junior high and high school level.

Granted, that's a little different from most of the east coast, where the game is extreme popular, but until about 10 years ago, the game was practically non-existent in the US outside of the area from Upstate NY to New England or so.

Yeah, the NCAA playoffs have been on ESPN for about 20 years, but until recently it was only the semis and finals. Thanks to things like ESPN-U, online streaming, etc, the exposure spread into the early rounds, then the regular season.

As funny as Weird Accent Boss saying "These shorts were made for a younger person, wouldn't you say?" is, I don't get that campaign at all.

I mean, seriously, is "oh no I'm so close to my data limit I can only download one thing" a problem anyone's ever had with any frequency? Do smartphones not sync to computers in their world? Because I wouldn't be downloading a loving video over a wireless connection no matter what, because videos are big, and I'm pretty sure they don't even let you video chat unless you're on wi-fi.

There's alot of variations of the scene. Some are edited together and come out to being over a few minutes per add. If this isn't going to give some chidlren a fear of clowns I don't know what is.

There's one where he just randomly appears on a train car and starts the DA DA DA DADADADA DA DA and it proceeds on for over 30 seconds of just the repeatition. It reminded me of the Willy Wonka scene when they're riding the boat and all of the sudden he starts getting creepy and flipping out when he enters the tunnel. Except this is a Zebra voiced by Chris Rock dressed as a clown, which is probably more scary than Willy Wonka.

Yeah, college lacrosse has really grown over the last few years in viewership and attendance, but it's been slower at the outdoor professional level. I'd still call MLL "fledgling" honestly. A lot of franchises have started up and quickly either folded or moved. Most games are played in large collegiate or professional football stadiums while attendances are in the few thousand range, which doesn't do much to help. TV coverage is pretty much just local/regional. I know indoor lacrosse is huge up in Canada but outdoor leagues have been slower to build.

It's probably about where MLS was in its infancy, and honestly I'd love to see MLL grow and find stability and popularity the way the MLS has. Problem is it's a predominately American/Canadian sport, so they won't get the influx of international players and stars to help things out. Slightly related, it was really neat to see two of the NCAA championship quarterfinal games in the Philadelphia Union's PPL Park this past weekend. That's a gorgeous stadium.

To combat all my about lacrosse, that "don't. stop. DOOOOOIN WHATCHA DO" song in the Home Depot ads is driving me insane.
