Guess and Check


Ninety foot babe

Filed under: Current Events — 10:35 pm

I saw a few TV commercials this evening that I found interesting. None of them explained anything about the product being advertised, but they all ended with text on the screen that read “No matter what happens, don’t flinch. To be continued.” So of course, I looked it up. What I found was this: Buddy Lee – Don’t Flinch.

The two I saw tonight were “Appliances” and “Centerfold”. They seem to be some sort of preview for the other ones: “Pretty Woman”, “Gawkers”, and “Hello”. What’s really interesting is the link to a fake weblog for the ninety foot babe. They even had her post about the upcoming commercials.

It really looks like they put some effort into this. I’m guessing that at least one person had a great time thinking all this up. Whoever did the weblog must have had fun too. And it’s just one error away from being valid XHTML 1.0.

This one is for Heather and Rob: Cooking for Engineers.

It’s very interesting. Though I did happen to notice that the word “chocolate” only appeared six times over the course of almost three and a half months of posting.
