I'm Your Puppet

Have you caught the recent Mayflower Movers TV commercial? It's beautifully shot and scored, technically dazzling, and deeply, deeply disturbing. I'm not sure why the Mad Men at Mayflower Movers (damn that's a lot of M's) thought a giant mannequin striding along a desert highway, city streets, and finally into a suburban cul-de-sac would sell moving jobs. But when she sits down on a lawn chair the size of a Taco Bell franchise, look out desperate housewives.

Last night, I dreamt I was driving along a blissfully deserted BQE. I glanced out over the guardrail only to see an enormous insensible head and pair of shoulders bobbing along beside me. She turned towards me. No, no, it can't be. It is... a 20 foot tall Sarah Palin! And she's winking at me!
