In an earlier post that had a clip from The Daily Show that made fun of Sarah Palin’s incoherent speech at the Iowa audition of possible presidential candidate, a parody of an advertisement for the Lincoln Continental car that featured actor Matthew McConaughey was shown. Curious, I went online to see the ad and it is truly weird.
I can never get over people who try to imbue mundane things like the purchase of a car with reverent significance. It is just a damn car, people! It takes you from here to there. That’s it.
Of course, such a pretentious ad starring a famous person just cries out for parodies and Jim Carrey and the Saturday Night Live crew came up with some beauties.
