Listen Up!

Beeps and I have a new favorite commercial. We just lose it when it comes on. Maybe you've seen it? It's the ad for "Listen UP" hearing devices. If you haven't seen it, go here and watch it online.

It starts off with this bitter older couple in bed fighting over the how loud the TV is. I guess because the husband is hard of hearing. You can tell that he's stuck in a loveless marriage by the way the wife treats him like crap.

In the next scene the same wife bitches at him again for having the stereo too loud while she's jibber jabbering on the phone to God knows who. He looks so defeated, like a beaten dog.

The commercial then goes on to tell you that you can use it outside to hear nature sounds, you can use it in church, it's as small as a credit card, yadda yadda. Then they tell you that you can listen in on other people's conversations! And guess who's suddenly hard of hearing? You got it, the same wife who complained to her husband. She turns out to be quite the neighborhood eavesdropper.

Then you see some dude at the gym overhearing girls talk about how hot he is. I won't ruin the rest of it for you, I'll just say that there's hunter who has no business carrying a gun. Please go watch it and then buy me one.
