This is probably my favorite cable comercial. The best part? The “guest” rapper in an Octopus/Kraken costume. I hope Optimum’s advertising or marketing department got bonuses. And if Optimum used an agency, I hope that agency got a Clio.
I was never a fan of Steve Urkel, but I have to admit Jael White in the new Cee Lo Green video is pretty awesome. I love that the 90s are slowly coming back into my life. I’d like to think Steve turned back into Stefan Urquelle, who now woos Laura Winslow by being in Cee Lo Green videos.
But if we really take a minute and think, we can all agree that Alfonso Ribeiro belongs in this video.
One of my favorite songs is “If I Were a Boy”. It has great hooks, and it perfectly articulates modern gender roles:
I’d put myself first And make the rules as I go Cause I know that she’d be faithful Waitin’ for me to come home
There are 3 different versions of the song: one by the song’s writer BC Jean, a cover by Beyonce, and a cover by Reba McEntire. Each of the versions conveys a different emotion, so what I end up playing depends on my mood.
