I saw this K-mart commercial on TV a couple days ago.
The hand bells are a much under-appreciated choir. Some of those bells are really heavy, too.
I thought the ad was cute right up until everyone began ringing their balls, I mean bells at the same time. That’s when my mind’s eye traveled south of Christmas. What are all those bell-clappers banging against? And that final high pitched bell at the end of the song… What DO I think of that?
Now I feel naughty. I watched this video more than once, trying to figure out whether it’s cute, disgusting, in poor taste, or just plain peculiar with those floppy boxers? What do you think?
How did the audition proceed? What kind of experience was requested/ And who decided which tone went with which Joe Boxer? In the future, will these men be happy to explain this ad as a resume builder? (“I’m the tower bell swinger in the K-mart commercial.”)
I’m just a scientist, collecting data, and hypothesizing. Honest.
Santa, please don’t put me on the Naughty List.
I remain puzzled. What do you think?
