I've no interest to see Cars 2 at all. I think it's a pointless sequel to one of Pixar's weakest films, but hey, $$$ in merchandising. That doesn't mean I need to see the State Farm commercial with Mater and the two spy cars every single goddamn commercial break on any channel at any time, anywhere.

You're losing my faith, Pixar.
The thing that gets me about this commercial is this:

In Cars, the cars are people, right? But the pet boutique ALSO has cars in it! So in the Cars universe, people have other people for pets?

I'm sure it's probably been mentioned, but the new Geico Happier Than ads would be fine if they didn't have the Hee-haw joke delivery at the end, it's just so painfully lacking in comic delivery, and so dated-yet-trying-to-be-hip.

Apparently this was the casting call, ugh.

quote:

Are you a folksy musician with a modern quirk? Do you know how to keep an audience entertained in the Buck Owens and Roy Clark pickin’ and grinnin’ tradition of “Hee-Haw”? We’re looking for duo acts, or solo musicians who play well with others, for an opportunity to add fun and laughter to a national commercial campaign! If you are already part of a strummin’ musical duo or musically inclined comedy duo, we’d love to see you two together!

Ron & Jimmy Male, 30-45 years old. These guys are a folksy, likeable duo with a real charm about them. Looking for guy(s) who have a witty chemistry between them or can make it work in a fun paring that feels natural, fun and spontaneous. Completely devoid of cynicism, these guys are contemporary rather than country, but still have a very FOLKSY way about them. They need to play an instrument, like the banjo, acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle or any other folk instrument.
