I have a love/sorta-hate (imaginary) relationship with Edward (DON’T CALL ME ‘ED’) Norton. I love him in a million (iread: 3 to 4) movies, namely ‘Fight Club’. I gotta say though, I squealed at the end of this great commercial for Verizon, starring Ed.

Gaaaah. Love it. Even if he’s pretending to have a sense of humor, I’m diggin’ seeing Ed have some fun at his own expense.
‘Tis the season for you to be reminded that greedy kids are going to invade your house at the end of the month for candy. I love Halloween commercials, and Halloween in general, but Mars Inc. has done too good of a job of creeping people out the past couple of years.

It’s not as odd as the commercials Skittles puts out, but I had the misfortune of catch it for the first time late Sunday night. Snickers are delicious, but this giant head is going to give me nightmares. Doesn’t it kind of look like Christopher Lloyd? Check out the extended online version with the headless horse.

On the other hand, it could just be a satirical ad campaign much like the Old Spice commercials–only less funny and without a horse. Oh wait. There were horses.
If only I could have been a fly on the wall during that presentation. Preferably by Don Draper. If anyone knows the Power of V…
Thoughts? Is this commercial sexist, racist, funny, cringe-y?
And what about the TV series, V? (And yes. I’m going to BOLD every upper-case V from now on.
