I don't watch a great amount of primetime TV, so perhaps this commercial has been around for awhile, but I was certainly taken back while watching a commercial break in primetime tonight, there was a recruitment spot for people wanting a career in clandestine intelligence work with the CIA.
I had to tivo back, and watch it twice to realize it was a serious commercial and not some spot for Saturday Night Live. Perhaps I'm getting to the age where I'm falling behind the times, but somehow this feels really odd to me.

None of us saw the ad, Michael.

It seems it was sent over YOUR TV only.

Beware the black helicopters at night.

Actually, I'm joking. You imagined it! It was...like...a dream! Yea!

I need to go now. I have .... to... ummm..... BYE!

Was it one of these commercials? (I am guessing the second one.)

Oh, BTW, did I tell you about my new job? I am working for a secretive division of a governmental agency specializing in MKULTRA research and study. I hate to tell you that you are part of operation SPELLBINDER, and all I have to say is remember MONARCH....
