Crass Commercialism

There's a Heineken commercial, you might have seen it, where the newest member of some sort of superhero team displays his superpower of turning a shoe into a bottle of beer. This is evidently more impressive than flying.

A six pack of a really good import might be about ten dollars.

A cheap pair of shoes is maybe twenty dollars.

Are our nation's superheroes (work with me here) rolling bums for their shoes because they don't have beer money?

Does your post mean you dislike the commercial? You seem to have put a lot of thought into a simple 30 second commercial.

I think the commercial is very funny and was done very well and then I moved on.

It is better than most commercials out right now. I would love to see more.

Oh, the commercial was amusing enough. I'm just saying...
