WTF WED! SNICKERS AND CHURROS AND LIGHTBULBS GALORE!
Let's start with something a little sweet in the form of the latest Snickers commercial that combines the slapstick shenanigans of Mr. Bean with the majesty of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon style string work martial arts films.
And, much like the combination of "happy peanuts soar[ing] over chocolate covers mountain tops and waterfalls of caramel, prancing nougat in the meadow sings a song of satisfaction to the world" that make Snickers so special, this advertisement is a delightful treat.
Don't worry. This isn't that godawful horrifying mask commercial from Snickers a few years back. That combined an adult guy's voice in falsetto and a mask that Buffalo Bill would find creepy with the fictional scenario of little rascal neighbor kids trying to trick a lady. Presumably, they don't find the body.
No, this is the latest video from Sky Williams and it is a funny bit of League of Legends gameplay between himself and his friends. And it is pretty good. OH YEAH.
I'll never look at churros the same.
Lastly, we have the sensual stylings of a GE light bulb commerical.
Light bulbs are pretty much the least sexy thing you can imagine. Fools.
This is a commercial for the light bulb of the future directed by Tim & Eric and starring Jeff Goldblum.
And that's a beat we can all dance to.
