I Honestly Cannot Explain Myself

At age 52, I'm glad that there are still things about myself that I find completely mysterious. Like why I can. not. stop. laughing -- at this:

Seriously. I do not really comprehend why I find this so hilarious.

I stumble-uponed it last night -- I'd seen it before -- it was late, and I just sat there, hitting re-play again and again and again and getting progressively more helpless in the face of my giggles.

I thought maybe it was that I was tired, or that I'd had a couple of beers. But nope. This morning? Still giggling.

Win. At. Yelling! OMG -- all I have to do is think of that and I start giggling again.

ps. I'm still not sure whether the fact that it's an actual drink makes it less funny, or more.

It's even funnier the second time, especially when you're watching someone else watch it. ^_^

Thanks for sharing that!

Wasn't that the drink in Idocracy?

between this and "B double E double R un" at Bob's at the tender age of 46 I've peed my pants for the first time in, well, weeks!

Oh my GODS, my best gal and her boyfriend quoted that for over a week. Yes, it is funny but I wanted to DESTROY THEIR FACES. I have the entire thing near-memorized in my head, and can even do the crazy announcer voice.

It was funny while we were camping, because they sold this bottled water in the camp store called "Nirvana Spring Water". So we made a commercial for that, which basically went "Nirvana Spring Water! It's like drowning in an oasis of calm! It will give you the knowledge of TEN. THOUSAND. BUDDHAS! So many Buddhas! More celestial understanding than your body has room for!!!"

We are all teenagers and we were very, very bored. I'm sure you understand. The fact that you like it too tickles me to no end, 'cause, you know, you're my hero. (:

BrandyV -- "More celestial understanding than your body has room for!!!"


You really MUST make that commercial. There must be blingy angels flying over an intensely confusing tiled day-glo background of OM symbols.

And yes, Namechanged, Brawndo is the substance with which they were watering crops in Idiocracy.

I may have to post my other favorite Brawndo commercial.

Ok, I watched this first at work with no sound. Just watched it at home with sound. HUGE difference. I think Michael Phelps must drink 5 of these at breakfast, cause he sure does WIN AT EXERCISE!

liberalandproud -- OK -- just imagining watching this WITHOUT the sound sent me off into gales of laughter again! LOLOLOLOLOLL

A buddy of mine showed me some of these a few months ago. They are so funny. And how funny would it be if Micheal Phelps really did one of those commercials?

must admit guilty pleasure just watched it again and laughed just as hard

You are giddy with giddiness because this is f'awesome. I just showed it to my 9 and 6 year old sons and they loved it too. I'm sure we'll be back to show Mr. Bee later. (Hahahahahaha- laughing as she walks out the door.) Must. Resist. Urge. To. Watch. Again.

Ok, NikEPoo -- That? Cracked my ass up all over again, and I had to watch the vid to compare my awesomeness with the awesomeness of Brawndo. LOL

Ah, how I've missed you!
