Back in March 2008, I was hitching my comedy wagon to the American Idol juggernaut. I was able to marry my idea of bad political ads with the AI voting. The idea was pretty good, what if the contestants could run ads to get votes instead of just doing Ford commercials? I thought it would go something like this:
Yeah, I don't often do it, but every so often a skit is triggered by family things. A phrase, a word said, a point of view on some topic will give me an idea. My daughter was complaining how she had joined a gym that wasn't nearby and she didn't go often but they were still charging her the monthly fee. We told her to cancel, but it was a pain, she didn't feel like going over there to do it in person, maybe she might start going, etc., etc. That's all it took, and this commercial parody was born. And the gang over at ACN bought it, just in time for New Year's! So, we include it here as a holiday-healthy treat!
We present this comedy to remind you that my Christmas Comedy Caper, Lost Claus is available over at Amazon. So, get a jump on next year's shopping today!
