Am I Late to the Shaker Weight Party?
So, last night after tucking the muffins into their cribs, I was all ready to settle into my comfy, petroleum based (shame on me), tempurpedic bed when the phone rang. It was our editor calling to talk to Sarah about some revisions to the second draft of the book (Times Two, due out April, 2011 - shameless plug). I told Sarah to have the conversation in our bedroom, and I'd just go down to the living room and watch TV until they were done. I assumed, what? Twenty minutes? Turned out to be 140 minutes, but that's a different blog...
I clicked on the tube and landed on one of my guiltiest pleasures, Joy Behar. I love when her show is on. I've seen it maybe 4 times, but every single time she's got a gay themed topic going. I caught the last 30 seconds of two extremely articulate and handsome gay men discussing the absurdity of our country's lack of tolerance on the gay marriage issue, but that's not what this blog is about either. Oh no, it is not. It's about the commercial that Joy Behar or the network that hosts her fine program cut to after the debate. Please note, I do not believe the two are related, or that the network intentionally placed this ad to run right after the discussion. I just wanted to make the point that Joy is awesome and stands on the proper side of my issue. Thank you, Joy.
So. The commerical. I found it on You Tube, and I've come to realize that I'm a little late getting to this party as the initial air dates are from 2009. But I still found it worthy of posting. I'm a girl who has major flabby underarm paranoia. It is truly my worst fear to one day discover I am the owner of saggy, swinging, underarms. So if there's a new product on the market to help combat it, I'm interested. But seriously? I mean. SERIOUSLY?
Roll the video:
Seriously. They're serious.
ps-BP=Brad Pitt, hence my Fight Club themed title for the BP blog. I guess I over thought that, huh? Cause I think only @lorraine got it...
