The playoff commercials were, as always, baffling

Emma Span of Sports on Earth puts voice to what all of us where thinking when all of those playoff commercials kept cycling over ad over again. The fact that she can describe one like this . . .:

it’s about bestiality and the end of a relationship with a sociopath.

. . . and you know which one it is immediately tells us (a) that there is something very, very wrong on Madison Avenue these days; and (b) even if wrong, they are at least doing a good job of making this stuff stick in our minds, so: well done, Madison Avenue.

And I had no idea that John Cusack was the voice for that Chevy truck commercial. Kinda blew my mind there.
