A few days ago, I was watching football when an ad came on that seemed both familiar and foreign. The music was familiar. The devices were familiar. And then came the voice.
"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute…"
I knew I had heard both that voice and those words before. In fact, I knew I had heard that voice reading those words before.
"We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion."
Then it hit me: Robin Williams. This must be some sort of trailer for a new film. This looks like a movie trailer. And again, the music is so familiar. And Hollywood loves to use the same songs in trailers over and over again.
Advertising. There still is gold between all that trash.
