So! You'll never guess. (You're sitting down, right?)
Just last night I was watching the Discovery Channel (Alaska, The Final Frontier, if you must know) when my husband paused the television.
"Look familiar, wife?"
An audible gasp escaped my lips.
Does it look familiar to YOU, dear readers?
YES, THAT'S RIGHT. IT'S THE CLICKING ELEPHANT, EVERYONE.
And WHY on God's Green Earth is it appearing on our TELEVISION, you ask? I had a similar question, though also punctuated with foul language that prompted my husband to remind me to put the children to bed for the evening.
He fastforwarded to the end of the commercial, which also featured people wearing fancy jewelry, using fancy gadgets, and drinking fancy things. (It should be noted, for the record, that I cannot find this commercial anywhere on the Interwebs...)
It was a commercial for Thailand exports, you guys. Specifically, a commercial for the DITP, or Department of International Trade Promotion, Thailand.
I have so many words for this, but I'm unable to string them together because of this paralyzing sense of terror and fear and visions of long-horned beetles eating my face off that I can no longer speak, save for brief explatives and things like THAILAND BEETLE CONSPIRACY and WORLD BEETLE DOMINATION and GET IN THE BUNKER and stuff so, ok, I guess this is good bye.
(Not convinced? As my father just pointed out in a [paraphrased] text message punctuated with things like "HAHAHA!" What are the odds that you guys just happened to see that impossibly obscure and never-before-seen-and-likely-never-seen since and possibly electronically planted television commercial? INDEED, DAD. INDEED.)
