Technology and Tears

Commercials have become such an annoyance that pretty much the only time they are ever actively watched is during the Super Bowl. And even then, the level of quality has really diminished.

Commercials have become that old wife of your’s that stopped wearing makeup, flaunts pajamas with holes in them, and screws you once a year for your birthday while half passed-out.

Which is why it’s super cool when you come across rare commercials like this one that are both creative and gets you right in the feels.

He laughed and made some off-hand comment that those were the hours he was the most productive. Which admittedly is probably true… but does that make it right or healthy?
