Fascinating and bewildering. Appropriate for a documentation of physical trivia and tv commercials.
Very stylized. Many of the facts are now common truisms. Truth be told I couldn't make it all the way through.
I enjoyed every bit of this except for the overdone fake accent on the narrator.
Odd and interesting facts; entertaining and often heinously manipulative advertising images.
Awesome facts and hilarious footage
Wow, that was very odd, but oddly entertaining.
Are you being programmed? No. It's already happened to you, long before you could even spell the word.
a lot of facts there i didn't know!
I don't know why this film is narrated by the voice of a cartoonish hick. I do know that the narration is unmistakeably from Ripley's Believe It Or Not. The value of the commercial clips is more in the ups and downs of their intrinsic strangeness than in the cleverness of their juxtaposition with Ripley's factoids.
Worth the 4 minutes!
