Nothing says inherent true geek like a dog cosplaying as a dinosaur. Must have been “ruff” trying to get into such a dog-gone adorable costume. Hey, let’s throw him a bone here, it’s not like dinos are easy to pull off. Three cheers for the dog’s choice in “Rex” as his preferred dino, because it would have been awkward if he tried to pull of “Terry-Dactal.” (We all know that’s a lab under there and not a terrier).
GoDaddy.com, a company that annually makes a Superbowl ad wherein there’s some implied female nudity if you visit their site, decided to pull this year’s ad that featured a puppy being sold online. It seems people were outraged about an implied abuse of a puppy, probably from a puppy mill for the commercial’s storyline, from a company that routinely makes commercials that objectify women. What gives? Does our society value dogs more than people?
In a word, it appears the answer to that question is “yes”.
If you haven’t seen the trailer for The Voices yet. Give this a whirl. I don’t know if I’m intrigued or frightened to see lover-boy Ryan Reynolds as a deranged serial killer. My warm fuzzier about him drained after watching this clip. What do you guys think? Funny or Frightening?
