I usually multitask and tune out mentally during commercials, so I don't get to be amused or annoyed. But that Nike commercial really got to me. The "Just do it" one? Where they strung up a tennis net downtown in the middle of traffic to play a game while inconveniencing everyone else. How rude!!! Just ignore everyone else to do what feels good to you? I don't think so. It totally outraged my Puritan sensibilities. I still don't buy Nikes. (But I'm darn glad it wasn't Reeboks because I really like Reeboks.)

But one thing I have noticed lately about commercials is that they have so little to do with the products. Even if I loved the commercial, I'd never be able to remember what product it was selling. I miss jingles. We taught our son his address to an old jingle.
