    Other peopleís TV commercials are weird, arenít they? Itís easy to get used to your own because theyíre on all the time, and the internal reference points have to be universal to your culture or they donít really work as adverts. Play the same ads across a global arena and everything suddenly looks very different.

    Mind you, the magnificent seven examples here look fairly strange to us Brits too: ...

    Ah yes, things which appear to be sweet on TV, that would be hideously embarrassing in real life. Some wazzock on the opposite platform starts singing a song about you, and using it to find out personal details, and somehow thatís not sexual harrassment so long as heís got a ukulele? Hmm, Match.com, HMMÖ ...

    Sorry Bijou to hijack your thread, but couldn't help it! (Bad! Bad ! ABC ... Smacking-self on wrist!) :D

    Linda ...

    Typing as someone born on *your* side of the pond ... you are right. A little strange!

    The first one of the cat filing it's nails wasn't animated, but made me laugh anyway. Would love to do that myself to our little sharp-clawed creature, but am afraid that SHE would win the battle that would ensue, hands down! :D
