Apparently most people don’t notice the things that I do. Or if they do, they don’t pay attention to them the way I do. I am always a ‘Can’t see the forest for the trees’ kind of guy. I am probably on the mild end of the Asperger’s spectrum.

 

 

The Toyota Mirai Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicle ad has a subtle lens flare effect as the Mirai drives up. It gives the appearance of a tiny halo over the car. It’s an almost subconscious subliminal (it was on the tip of my tongue) thing.

Generally in the same area of subliminal messages is something I've noted in a few recent commercials: the nonchalant inclusions of same-sex couples!!! Yay!  

 

One for a national retailer of diamond rings includes a beautiful pair of brides at the altar, and the most recent one by Hallmark (a greeting card maker) for Valentine's Day had hugging guys among all the other loving couples. It's very nice to see

Crate & Barrel included a male couple among the pictures they used to accompany their promotion for wedding registrations in their most recent paper catalog. C&B has been a supporter for many years.

Every time I see the PBS Newshour’s underwriters list, I see Josh Weston’s Foundation. My brain immediately jumps to the Gay porn actor! I’m sure the guy gets confused with the actor – especially on Google! It makes me wonder if the, I assume, nom de porn was chosen specifically because of the guy with the Foundation. Maybe a relative or disgruntled employee?

Could be the porn guy...?

I think the name is the Judy and Josh Weston Foundation or something like that…

 

But I don’t think pornJosh's career was that lucrative. Producers used to make all the money, but apparently no one makes much money due to all the tube sites. (The owner of a large number of tube sites also owns several porn studios. I have the feeing someone is going to need to make a paradigm shift to something entirely new for anyone to make money on porn again, if that ever does happen. Commercial porn may only have had a 50-60 year run.)

So I switched to CBS to start watching NCIS. And the first thing I see is four ads for SUVs followed by a car ad. Jeep, MB GLC Coupe, Ford (Escape?), Audi Q5, and Jaguar – who apparently didn’t get the memo!

 

NCIS viewers must be a highly desirable bunch. Other than me, of course.
