    Well the ads are often the best part of tv - so what are your favourites?

    There's a car ad at the moment, I think it's for Toyota, that really makes me smile. It shows a couple and the girlfriend is flying her boyfriends model airplane, which she then deliberately crashes into the ground. the ad then shows what happened 2 days earlier when the b/f closed the car door by kicking it shut - she was not happy and obviously vowed revenge. DH watched it & said he would not be letting me have the controls to his model helicopter any day soon :D

    I love the new Orange advert at the cinema with the blackout in New York, the music is something like "my mum sucked lemons"

    Wish I knew what the music was as I like it a lot!

    This is the advert....... the song is called This Side of The Blue by Joanna Newsom

    Svetlana sucks lemons across from me,
    and I am progressing abominably.
    And I do not know my own way to the sea
    but the saltiest sea knows its own way to me.

    The city that turns, turns protracted and slow
    and I find myself toeing th'embarcadero
    and I find myself knowing the things that I knew
    which is all that you can know on this side of the blue

    And Jaime has eyes black and shiny as boots
    and they march at you, two-by-two (re - loo - re - loo);
    when she looks at you, you know she's nowhere near through:
    it's the hardest heart beating this side of the blue.

    And the signifieds butt heads with the signifiers,
    and we all fall down slack-jawed to marvel at words!
    While across the sky sheet the impossible birds,
    in a steady, illiterate movement homewards.

    And Gabriel stands beneath forest and moon.
    See them rattle & boo, see them shake, see them loom.
    See him fashion a cap from a page of Camus;
    see him navigate deftly this side of the blue.

    And the rest of our lives will the moments accrue
    when the shape of their goneness will flare up anew.
    hen we do what we have to do (re - loo - re -loo),
    which is all you can do on this side of the blue.
