You’d think that people in the Arts would have better ideas. You’d think they’d have a clue. But this ad tells us they do not. (Thanks The Standing Room for … um … this.)

I keep hoping this is just something that was on a Comedy Central show, you know? But no such luck. They do things a bit better there.

Okay, okay, I have seen worse ads. It’s just that this one is about the arts, and I think that people in the arts should do better than this. It’s just so average in its creativity.

But it made some of you laugh, so there’s that.

(I do wonder if they could get in trouble using the Raisin Bran box so obviously. Is that legal?)


  1. ooh, that *is* bad.

  2. OK…am I the only one out here that, um, laughed at that?

  3. Oh yes … I laughed. But I doubt they wanted me to laugh in the way I did.

    Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe they wanted it to be as bizarre as it was.

    Hmmm. Dunno.

  4. Hm… Maybe I’m with Jill. It gave me a good chuckle.

  5. Well, now we have to hear from Jill. Was it a “good laugh” or a “you’ve got to be kidding me!” laugh?
