My Favorite TV Commercial (Autumn 2010 Edition)

Apropos of nothing, this has been stuck in my head for months. 

What can I say?  I likes savings the money.

I don't see many non-German commercials these days. That's not necessarily a bad thing except when I miss hilarity such as this. I think I watched this four times in a row, and I'm still chuckling over it. Thanks for sharing... I think I'm gonna go watch it again now. AND IS HE EATING GOLD GRAPES!? I wants the opulence.

I wants the pygmy giraffe. I didn't even notice the DOGS PLAYING POKER in the background until the Nth time I'd seen this on television. And I didn't notice until I watched it on YouTube that one of the dogs is hiding an ace under the table. But when YouTube tells me they has five month free premium televisions commercial... I jump in it. Apparently this guy (along with the two supermodel girlfriends/arms candy) was at the MTV Music Awards.

I definitely didn't see the dogs. THAT'S AWESOME. Ahahahaha. So ridiculous, so fantastic. I just had to watch the video a few more times to make sure I caught that Ace. Phew -- sharp eyes, Mr. Tregillis. I tried to make my hubby watch him, but...he couldn't understand the Russian accent. Not a single word. I guess I don't understand Russians speaking German either, so I can see the difficulty. Still, he didn't even laugh at the giraffe! ::sigh:: (P.S. I just noticed my name on your Links pages. THANKS! That's really nice of you.)

I didn't notice the dogs, either, until the third or fourth time I saw this on TV. (They were running it pretty heavily for a while, because in spite of how it sounds, I don't actually watch a ton of TV right now.) And I certainly didn't notice the ace under the table until I saw it mentioned in the comment thread on YouTube. :-) Oh-- and you're very welcome for the link! Just please remember this when you're rich and famous and I need a job answering your phone.
