Here’s a commercial that does the nigh-impossible: If you were to strip the text overlays, you’d have no idea this was a commercial.  Kudos to whomever pitched this spot, because it’s utterly brilliant.  I shan’t ruin it by explaining further.  Just watch.

    That is great, and even knowing it was a commercial, I couldn’t guess for what…

    That was wonderful. I think I’m gonna stop by the mall after work today…

    Hey, the mall’s First Canadian Place in Toronto.

    It’s so clever and obvious a joke that you wonder why some skit show didn’t get to it first.  Actually, it reminds me of something the Kids in the Hall would have done.  I like it.

    This has replaced Motorola’s history of film as my favorite commercial.

    “Escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience. We apologize for the fact that you can still get up there”

    So reminded me of that

    Actually I thought of that too.

    does anyone know how I could get/download an electronic version of this? in windows media player or real player?

    would be willing to pay.
