Happy Mornings! You Can Sleep When You are Dead!

Folgers has a fun and quirky commercial that is so off the wall you won't forget it.

Here's the You Tube video:



Ann Althouse appreciates the commercial's goofiness:

I'd like to see this on TV, preferably HDTV, widescreen, to get the full effect, but even just looking at that YouTube-ish rectangle, I'm going to give this commercial the Althouse Seal of Approval... and not just because it's cleverly creating web buzz. I approve because it's hilariously engaging and entertaining -- enough not only to prevent fast-forwarding but to inspire replaying and even conversation. And that conversation is engaging and entertaining: What the hell was that? How is that a commercial for coffee?

When you're done watching the video, check out the site Tolerate Mornings.

Okay, I get it -- it's called "Tolerate Mornings" because nobody grabs a shotgun and starts blowing away those caterwauling glowing people.

Wait a minute...don't those glowing yellow people with rictus smiles remind you of the moonbats and Kos in his Ned Lamont endorsment?

A few shotguns and grenades would have been the perfect ending to that commercial.
