Imaginative Impulse by Garland Cannon

Imaginative Impulse by Garland Cannon

So recently, I’ve noticed an onslaught of extremely odd commercials. They aren’t the first of their kind. However, with so many coming at you, so often, it’s only natural to be perplexed, amused and a bit afraid.

Mountain Dew Kickstart: Puppymonkeybaby

Let’s just start right off with the scariest. Combining three adorable things, into one horrifying thing. I’m so not into Kickstart, but I’m so into this ad, and Amp, why is Amp so difficult to find anyway?

Subaru Dog Tested Windshield Wiper

So, they’ve been doing these dog commercials for a while, but this one is new and totally has a surprise ending.

KFC Nashville Spicy Hot Chicken Ad

Not, that long ago, Kentucky Fried Chicken decided to just randomly start putting ex-SNL alumni in their commercials. They randomly switched off from Darrell Hammond to Norm Macdonald as Colonel Sanders, like no one would notice. Or they intended for everyone to notice. Either way, this new commercial spun me for a loop and is killing it’s predecessors. Yes, that’s comedian Jim Gaffigan having a nightmare that he’s not the “real Colonel Sanders”. WTF? Yes, Yes, I say.

Honda Ridgeline

Why are these sheep trying to sell me a car while singing Queen’s Somebody to Love? Then the dog talks at the end, almost out of nowhere. Who put acid in my tea?

Kia Optima Walken Closet
“It’s like the world’s most exciting pair of socks.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9r0FrXXKeiA
This is odd, intimidating and hot. Yeah, I’d do Christopher Walken, what of it? This actually makes me want to buy colorful socks, not a car though.

LG Man From the Future OLED TV

I just love that Liam Neeson knows what he is doing in all of these spoofs of himself. Also, at least this one is for a nice tv, instead of a car.

The Portrait
“Okay, let’s do this. I’ve got minds to twist and values to warp.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21ivbtgqJkg
So, it’s Steven Tyler and incredible candy art, singing Dream On. It’s definitely not the funniest one, but still disturbing. Plus, Steven Tyler, I mean, yeah.

4.5 out of 5

Hello, beloved viewers, and welcome to another article from the least famous man you have ever met. Giving you my opinion about things you don’t care about, whether you like it or not. Today we are talking about the beautiful world of “Demolition Man”, played by that one actor, Sylvester Stallone. He’s a man who can scream throughout most of his acting career, and become one of the most well renown actors.

The movie starts out at the end of an unassumingly endless confrontation between the Demolition Man and Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes). This results in the deaths of several innocent lives. By the way, if your nickname is the Demolition Man you need to assume at least two things: 1. if you are in the police force and your constant actions give you that nickname….maybe you should be at a desk filing paperwork so you don’t cause the death of anybody, 2. the most obvious reason, YOU SHOULD NOT BE IN THE FIELD DUE TO YOUR CONSTANT RECKLESSNESS.

Having said that, do not get me wrong. I understand the pull to the audience. It was during a time when explosions and rippling muscles were what made classic cinematic masterpieces. Even today, it still does make for some potential classics, but I digress.

Due to the said death of several innocents, John Spartan receives a frozen sentence of many years. Though, he does end up getting his sentence cut short. This happens, when Phoenix blows up everything and kills everyone. Blows up and kills everyone…or like maybe, three people. This is a peaceful future where the biggest string of crime is graffiti.

Anyway, stuff happens where they show weird future stuff, like the three shells and Taco Bell being the only fast food chain left, resulting in it becoming high class cuisine. After conflicts and a scene of sex but, no sex, Spartan freezes and crushes Phoenix (aka Mr Murder Death Kill). This shows off to the other cops what he can do and he also exchanges bodily fluids with the token female cop. Shows the cops what to do and exchanges bodily fluids with token female cop (Sandra Bullock as Lenina Huxley).

There are some interesting things that I noticed, which they never really touched upon. For instance, is wife and his daughter, or rather just his daughter. You see, they do mention that his wife was killed or murdered or just in general, is not around anymore. But, they hardly touch upon his daughter or even let him know that she is alive. Maybe there is something that I missed, but I don’t know. I’ve only watched the movie once, and so maybe I’m going to catch something next time that I didn’t during my initial viewing, but, until then, I’m only going to assume that them not mentioning what happened to his daughter is either a cop out, or just general laziness.

NOW, here is why I love this movie. I am a man. I love explosions, unnecessary murder and guns. I can’t help it. It’s in my blood. It’s what i breath. It’s how I live. Boom, Boom, pow, and all of that other junk.

This movie really was fun. I’m 23. I feel kind of embarrassed when I say that I haven’t seen this movie before. According to missemmamm, the amount of incredible movies that I’ve never seen is shocking. I promise that I will see them, one at a time. But, I do feel like it gives me a unique perspective. The perspective of someone in my generation, who hasn’t seen a movie quite like the ones from ten, twenty, or thirty years ago. So, I want to type about these little treasures from a fresher look, from a later generation.

All in all, from the ramblings of a mad, intoxicated, 23 year old, I think I am going to give this movie, a 4.5 out of 5. The only reason, being that I do not know what the three sea shells are for….but i am still not sure if that is a good or a bad thing.
