Hey! A Commercial That Doesn't Suck!

Russians have always been inherently funny to me. They are just a funny people (when they aren't threatening to nuke us or supplying nukes to terrorists...but besides that...).


-I'm convinced Natasha on Rocky and Bullwinkle would have been a waste if not for that accent.

-Ivan Drago is easily the most memorable Rocky villain. Screw you, Apollo, I'm in a decade long training routine to one day be Drago for halloween.

-Just LOOK at this big-eyed guy during one of Vladamir Putin's press conferences. He has become an internet sensation, nicknamed Glazastik (literally "big-eyed guy" in Russian). Go to the 0:37 mark in this video:

Where am I going with this? I was watching television the other day and was fast-forwarding through the commercials, as usual, but saw something weird for a split second and rewound to see it. It turned out to be a DirectTV commercial, and I actually found it pretty darn entertaining. I don't normally enjoy commercials that others find funny (that "Yes I am" Budweiser guy was the made me question being an American), but this one was interesting enough and had some of that humorous Russian flavor.

See? Told you Russians were funny. If you're a Russian and reading this, don't be offended at me finding you funny. I'm Lithuanian, which used to be part of Russia, and laugh at my reflection every time I look at it.

-Primarily because I'm making this face at myself.
