CAUGHT ON FILM: Hungry egret hunts for next meal

I know it's a vertical video and people hate vertical videos but I didn't think I could keep the whole bird in the frame as I got closer if I shot horizontally.

For some reason the fullscreen option isn't available when I embed on the blog, so click this link so you can actually see what happens. The best part is the end, so watch the whole thing!

My name is Sam and I am not, in fact, in your pants.

What appears to be an attempt at feminine hygiene humor misses the mark entirely. Cue the cringe...


When I think about how this commercial came to fruition, I imagine the Poise creative team sitting around a conference table going over ideas when some suit that we'll call "Bob" stands up.

BOB
Edgy. We need something edgy!

LADY EXECUTIVE
We're still selling pantyliners, right?

BOB
Yes but open your mind, girlfriend! It's time to think outside the box of tampons.
Have you forgotten what the Summer's Eve people did with body wash in January?
It was brilliant! Let's watch it again!

  CUE VIDEO:


END VIDEO.
Collective eye rolling among the execs.

BOB
Husband accidentally uses wife's body wash in shower. Wife points out to husband he's loofahing with lady product! Husband freaks out and goes on hilarious masculine activity binge! He swallows raw eggs, you guys! That was great!

LADY EXEC
We saw the ad, Bob. And actually, it was really fucking sexist.

BOB
(ignoring Lady Exec)
We can top Summers Eve. We can do better than the body wash spot.
I have two words for you: Funny Women.

LADY EXEC
Bob, I get what you're tr--

BOB
Women are funny! And we're going to show the world how funny you can be!

LADY EXEC
With pantyliners.

BOB
With pantyliners! And hilarious innuendo!

LADY EXEC
This is a stupid idea.

BOB
No it isn't, Samantha. And I'm gonna prove it.

END SCENE.

"Millionaire" moment reminds woman of blog she abandoned

Joined my mother on the couch for a bit of "Millionaire" tonight. Started in the middle of an episode and this was the first question:
Lady won $25,000 with "Sex life" and lost it a minute later on a Harlem Globetrotters question. 

This little moment reminded me of my most precious blog. I abandoned this sweet space when I fell on some tough times in 2012. A lot has happened/changed since then. Going to try and start updating soon but I can't promise "comedy" at this point because it's been a very long time since I have written anything funny. I bought my first DSLR a year ago so maybe I'll start posting by some new photos in the near future.

Bagelin' and Kegelin' 4-eva,
Sam
