I have watched this commercial in amazement at the near subliminal imagery of the bars motif. Long live more bars!

It's kind of like an updated version of those drawings that used to be printed in children's books-- can you find the lampshade and the magnifying glass and what-not in the picture? or "where's Waldo?" I used to be real good at them when I was a kid.

The "bars" are the symbols of reception quality on the screen of a cell-phone. |||| ... Cingular is promoting the notion that they give you better reception, more widely, than their competition. I haven't found this to be true, myself, but that was several years back and the network is changing daily.

I wsa doin' fine until I came to your post, Rapaire. I read it as 'I think that the Idaho Legion would like more BRAS....' Is the Legion predominantly comprised of women?

ANyway, the commercial is to the music Sweet Melissa and it has a number of frames of a man hurrying off to work and then getting a phone call that his wife is ready to deliver at the hospital. The fascinating part is that each frame in the commercial has one or more images of representing the increasing bars left to right of a cell phone I have seen about 14 different images so far   My wife thinks I am obsessed with the commercial

I assumed that the thread was about all the banks and post offices that have been turned into bars while real pubs are getting closed at the same time.

I think it was Benny Hill who said "Not nececelery. Plobabry, but not nececelery!"

On the other hand -

More baas in more places.....

Hey presto! Now it's about sheep!

I had hoped the Brewery Workers Union was fielding a candidate for Prime Minister. Maybe there'd be more gigs....

Sigh...

Sorry, I've been out working long hours. I'm sorry, I ASS U ME d everyone watched TV and had heard this commercial. My husband thinks I'm nuts (..and he is probably right) because everytime the commercial is aired I hollor loudly ...

More Bars in More Places..Yeeaaaa..



Tee Hee..

It seems the commercial itself has become unimportant to me. I just like to hear that line on television.

Sometimes I'm just silly.

Love, Annamill

Annamill, no need to feel "sheepish" about being a bit silly. "Ewe" probably don't need any help getting yourself to a "baa".

In fact I think I'll put on my "woolly jumper" and find one too. "Shear" ecstasy!

Oh Eric.. I'm just playing when I bellow out that line.

Actually I haven't been drinking much at all. It is either because I'm getting old, or I'm just working too hard. It used to be that the thought of a Pina Coloda or one of Jeri's Margaritas would have me riddled with anticipation.

These days, though, maybe a glass of wine, or a Guiness is all I hanker for.

"More bars in more places!!" is just a reaction to an old time religion.

Party on!

Love, Annamill
