If you didn't catch the 20th anniversary show of Absolutely Fabulous the other night, check your listings, as I'm sure they'll run it ad naseum until the next 2 installments arrive. It's running on LOGO, but if you're afraid you'll get caught, it's also on BBCA.
This time 'round, Jennifer Saunders trashes the Royal Wedding, Pippa Middleton's ass, the Kardashians ("Look," she says, pointing to a group photo of them in a showbiz mag, "in America, diseases have become celebrities!"), and hosts of other contemporary people and topics.
I was afraid I'd be disappointed. No way.
Funny Thing #2
You guys brought up Fiat in the Shoutbox, so I take no responsiblity for the synapses involved in this vision.
I saw one of JLo's Fiat commercials again last night. Night shot, shiny, abondoned, rain-slicked city street, hotel entrance with still doorman.
The camera zooms in to the bottom of the driver's door. A single shoe extends and makes contact with said shiny street and displays it's full reflection in the wet asphalt. (Of course, JLo wouldn't be caught dead in shoes that cost less than $15,000--the MSRP of the gussied-up Fiat she's "driving.")
So I'm thinking, she needs some men in the commercial with her; make it sexier, something for everybody. She's very small, so, for contrast, we need really tall ones, like, umm JP, Peter, and Ray----- you know, just to show how "roomy" it really is.
After she ascends the curb to the sidewalk, the three of them slowly emerge and stand smiling, together, forming a wall behind her, where the top of her "do" barely reaches their lowest ribs.
Because she is tricked out to the 9's, they will be wearing tuxedoes, but with clown shoes. (You know, about the same size they already wear, but in bright colors and patterns, to emphasize the Barnum quotient of the car's true capacity.)
The final shot will be on her face. As she begins to speak the closing line, we pan back to include our forum buddies. Everyone is smiling as she says, "Whenever I go out cruisin' with my friends, Andre and The Marfan Twins, we do it in style!"
C'mon, I'm depressed! But that did make me feel a lot better about myself.
"Ya rolls the dice and ya takes yer chanskes."
