Advantage II for Cats Huge Flea Commercial…

Fleas the size of humans are the stuff of nightmares, especially if you happen to find them watching a movie with you, or (shudder) squirreled away all cozy in your bed… 

The giant fleas in the Advantage II for Cats commercial are both repulsive and oddly fascinating; it’s hard to look at them or away from them, perhaps because they’ve acclimated to human life so well.  They seem like world-weary couch potatoes, not really trying to make a fuss but just fit in.  And so it is when the woman vacuuming approaches the giant flea encamped on her couch, the insect very accommodatingly lifts a hind leg to allow her work to continue.  The flea fits in all too well, and is possibly less offensive than other house guests.  

If your cat has fleas, you probably do also” is the commercial’s disturbing message.  Perhaps in a sequel, we’ll hear the pitter-patter of not-so-little flea legs around the house, or see the one on the couch pick up the phone to order a pizza…

      The commercial can give one what used to be called “the willies.” A television show might be generated, however, called perhaps “The Flea Family” or “The Flea and Me.”

    Or “The Crash of the Flea Market?”

    “And, with that, he did ‘flea’ the scene in defeat.”

      P.S.—I don’t know about you. But, this year’s Sharkweek seemed way too lackluster for a 30th anniversary year.. Makes me think/worry there won’t be a Shark Week 2018.

    Okay; just one more. Syfy Channel is coming out with a FOURTH(!) sequel to “Sharknado.”

    And that’s no bull shark.

      Does it involve a starfish-shaped shark, one with five heads. That reminds me, I recently saw a Corman movie on Syfy called, “Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf.” Hated myself for watching it, but had to see how terrible it was, and rooted for the Whalewolf…

        At least the look of that one was based on actual folklore: the Pacific Northwestern ahklut. Wolf on dry land; orca in the water!
