Hotwire Commercial, “Time…”

 This is quite the Zen goat, serenely sitting on a couch in a Hotwire tv commercial and playing a sitar.  I haven’t heard a sitar played this well since Ravi Shankar, or perhaps Muriel in Courage the Cowardly Dog.   Since he’s anthropomorphic, the mountain goat’s name is “Carl,” and he’s in this surreal “No Pressure” environment to help demonstrate that time is a construct of human perception, an illusion like that we are shown of Martin Starr, our host, in an hourglass filling with red sand.  Since Hotwire can always get you a great rate, you’re under no pressure to book at a certain time.  So book, or don’t…the universe abides irregardless, dig?

And perhaps seated at the hooves of Carl, we could all be wafted away by his sitar music to partake of a little transcendental meditation…groovy, baby!  Anyone else up for a ’60’s revival?  Bring your Beatles and Jefferson Airplane albums, your Peter Max poster, and of course those psychedelic brownies…far out!

    Ah, yes! The Sixties. Heyday of such underrated groups as The Monkees and Gary Puckett & The Union Gap. Speaking of monkeys; did you see that husband-and-wife team on PENN & TELLER: FOOL US? They attempted to do just that…with a trained capuchin and a typewriter!

    Something about the “Infinite Shakespeare Principle?”

      Didn’t see the act…but it’s said that an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters and an infinite amount of time will eventually produce all of the works of Shakespeare. Just a few rushed monkeys will suffice to script most of television…

        One of them is probably also the programming director at CW.

        “Oh my, yes. I think a remake of DYNASTY is a wonderful idea!”
