    Brilliant ads. Can be applied to everything. Sort of makes me concerned about doing anything. When you get concerned about anything you end up staying at home drinking vodka. When you drink vodka you wake up wondering where your trousers are. Don’t wonder where your trousers are – get right on it and sink another bottle of vodka.

    BUT…when you sink another bottle of vodka you wake up still wondering where your trousers are and why you’re now naked in the middle of a field. When you wake up still wondering where your trousers are and why you’re now naked in the middle of a field, you try to hitch a life home. When you try to hitch a lift home, the police pick you up. When the police pick you up, you end up in a police line-up. When you end-up in a police line-up, you spin a yarn about some bloke called Keyser Soze. When you spin a yarn about some bloke called Keyser Soze, you get committed into an insane asylum. Don’t get committed into an insane asylum. Stop drinking vodka!

    Haha, Parlow that’s either a total rip off or a total coincidence. Either way, it’s a good reminder that a technique is nothing without craft. The same idea but DirecTV is brilliant and the smoking one is pants.
