    Saw this for the first time before "Minority Report". Hilarious.

    Haven't seen it yet, Peter. What's in it?

    Is it the same one that's currently all over TV, the one with the red M&M trapped in the candy box since Valentines Day?

    I saw it too. Honestly... I didn't get it.

    And if I did, I just didn't think it was funny. *shrug*

    Tired or not, I'd rather see this spot before a film 100 times before I have to see that assinine spot with the guy that freezes his drawers even once.

    I'd rather not see TV commercials before the start of a movie which I've paid seven bucks to see. Movie trailers are one thing, but commercials for any other product or service are another matter entirely.

    Thanks for the link Chris.
    After watching it again... yeah, it just wasn't funny.

    All I get for a commercial before a movie in the theater is the Jordan's Furnature where a guy's wife mistakes "some classic tunes and the Zeppelin set" for the "2 guys and a bedroom set". The couple keeps the bedroom set and returns the guys to Jordan's Furnature. It's a real stupid commercial.

    The TV version of this spot is different than the theatrical one (same concept, alternate punchline). I have to say I prefer this one to the SLEW of spots I'm seeing in theaters lately. Must have been four or more prior to Road to Perdition.

    Of course, I get a kick out of the fact that the M&Ms spot features an actual married couple, Bradley Whitford and Jane Kaczmarek.
