Listen, when you’re a busy account executive at the biggest advertising firm in the city, you haven’t got time to do things like research. Or care. Especially when it’s for an ad for one of those “video games” your kid keeps talking about. You take a look at the artwork the client sent over, throw away the ones by some hack named Amano that look like the characters subsist on nothing but Jergens body lotion, circle the weird teddy bird thing on the cover of the box and write “make it edgy” before sending it down to production. Done. Time for martinis.
Thus is almost certainly the story with the Final Fantasy III commercial that your host, John Hurst, chose as our video to watch on loop this episode. Co-host Aaron Littleton uses the opportunity to correct a grievous misunderstanding about animation techniques.
So much Star Wars is happening around us. As I’m typing up this post, we literally got an announcement that Rian Johnson is directing a brand new trilogy of Star Wars related films. That’s crazy! Especially when considering that just a short hop ago, we were yearning for any news on a hot little Star Wars feature called Episode I. It was a Menace of Phantoms, but the merchandise was certainly the opposite of that. We drowned in tacos shaped like droids and pizzas that had little Jedi lightsaber pepperoni! Well, I’m lying. We didn’t. That would have been great compared to the insufferable amount of fast food games and cheap plastic we did get. In fact, Yum! Brands aligned all of their fast food powers to make the ultimate Fast Food Star Wars team. Join us in considering the Jedi Mind Powers of Colonel Sanders, won’t you?
Aaron Littleton hosts this week, which is good considering the tragic incident that occurred with the Taco Bell dog earlier. John Hurst co-hosts, polishing the carbonite chambers deep within Skywalker Ranch.

What if you only kind of liked your dog? What if you worshiped a horse? What if you hated cooking and/or shopping and/or Imagine Dragons? We ask these questions but dare not answer them with any kind of authority while watching the classic Chuck Wagon Dog Food Commercial. After all, who are we to speak for the giant bronze equestrian statue born aloft on the backs of men?
John Hurst is your host and chose a classic dog food commercial for our video this week! Aaron Littleton is your cohost and contemplates the 70s.
