I just saw myself in a Circuit City commercial…

    Scene: A husband and wife standing in front of a Circuit City…

    (I don’t remember the exact wording, I was laughing so hard…)

    Woman: now, we are going to just go in there, get what we NEED and leave, righ!?

    Man nods meekly in agreement. He’s obviously failed to follow through on his wife’s instructions/plan times before.

    The man and woman proceed to walk into the store. Upon entering, the man stands there, looking at all of the gadgetry, awe written all over his face. He’s got that kid-in-the-candy-store look about him.

    After standing there for a few seconds, he suddenly breaks into a frantic run, racing down the aisle, bumping to one customer, spilling that customers armload of packages. His wife is shouting behind him…

    The commercial ends with the couple walking out of the store, the man with both arms full of bags o’ stuff, the wife scolding him.

    That’s most DEFINITELY me

    Just saw that one, too, iBrotha! Yeah, me too!

    Except I’m still single (that’s probably why).

    You know Rodney, a pair of horse blinders may be just the thing your wife needs to get you.

    I like that…..its a reverse on what most females do when they go to the mall with thier husbands. Husband “Just get what you need and lets go”. Wife has to look in every shop

    Good point, Extell.  We would all do well to remember that, eh?

    Guys, I think that was intentional irony on the ad company’s part, but maybe that’s what Extell meant.

    ...or maybe I’m assuming too much
