Just a little Friday afternoon fluff. I’m home early have the TV on, and just saw a commercial I actually like. It’s for Hasbro’s game called Taboo, in which players try to get their teammates to guess a word without saying a certain set of other, related (taboo) words when describing it.
Sadly, I can’t find the commercial online, so I’ll try to describe it. A man and woman are entering their home, straight from a party. They chat about how nice it was, but every time the man tries to talk, the woman silences him with an obnoxious “ANH!” Insert flashback to the party, and we see the man holding the game’s buzzer and buzzing the woman repeatedly throughout the course of the evening, becoming more “in your face” about it as the examples are shown. The woman looks exasperated with him throughout, for good reason. Cut back to the post-party…and the couple is now in bed. The woman’s on her side, curled up. The man tries to initiate a little somethin’ and is greeted with a loud, “ANH!”
I think I enjoy this commercial so much because there are repercussions to the man’s earlier asshattery. The woman’s annoyed and not afraid to let him know about it, even though he apparently isn’t that quick on the uptake. He should have figured out he wasn’t getting any when she started “anh!ing” him.
