In honor of Canada Day.



This Canada Dry commercial by Ann Margret is super-trippy.
I mean really, it sounds like she's making this shit up off the top of her head, doesn't it?
Love it.

(Completely gratuitious personal information here: I learned more about AM than I ever thought I would by way of the last guy I think I dated. Anyway, he was an actual friend of hers, in fact, a childhood fanatic who had become a friend. He wasn't creepy about it though, well, much.)

You've probably already seen this, but this is my FAVORITE youtube clip of all time, I kid you not:

Oh, and regarding the post below this one, is it okay if I work "Your kisses taste like healthy fruits" into my conversations? It's genius.

I was going to say that Canada Dry commercial was bizarre... and then I watched that clip Max sent. I'm so glad I wasn't born until 81, that's all I have to say.

That is so cool. I'm going to start claiming that I'm a soft drink expert and that my lips know what to sip, next time I'm out on the town.

Reminds me of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

Wow. Makes me long for acid.

Not to suggest/imply that I've ever dropped a smallish, micro-chip/tissue-thin square of something commonly referred to as "blotter" acid. Just saying:

Have you ever stood in a shower with the nozzle spraying rose petals?

A-M is pure, fizzy genius.

Starting now Canada Dry is the only soda I'll drink.

Good Lord! She was just like scatting by the end of that 20-minute commercial. That was like the first informercial, before they tried to have them make sense.
