Sometimes tomorrow is farther away than you think

I know this Sheryl Crow commercial’s been around since the Super Bowl, and I thought it was heinous then. But another thought struck me this week. Do the folks at Revlon realize that by enlisting the narrator from “Behind The Music,” they’ve missed verisimilitude and headed straight into full-on parody?

Admittedly, this one doesn’t play as badly as the one right now that purports to show her on Week 4. If you TIVO’ed this week’s 30 Rock, watch for it in the first break. If that doesn’t play like a Saturday Night Live sketch, I don’t know what doesn’t.

    The whole narrative conceit of this commercials cracks me up. I especially enjoy the distressed-film-stock-and-shaky-camera techniques. This isn’t a commercial at all! It’s a bona fide documentary about a rock star using hair dye!

    1. if it doesn’t “fade away,” then why did she need “a boost” on week whatever? i’d think it should last six effing weeks.2. why does everyone cover “not fade away?” i’d love to hear someone do “rave on” or “oh boy.” i guess i should be glad everyone just fucks up the SAME buddy holly song instead of many.
