Evidently dinosaurs begat dolphins, dolphins begat flying squirrels, and flying squirrels begat primates.

Not being snarky. Just find that funny. I really like the ad.

Is there an easy way to play the video backwards?

That makes me happy. Thanks for the amusement. Now, though, I have to go get the "Sweet Charity" soundtrack.

I hadn't heard that song in a while... a GREAT scene from "Sweet Charity"....

Thanks for the link....

Ok... I played it backwards... the picture makes sense, but who the heck is the Paul that they keep saying is dead?

Well, it worked on me.

I want a guinness now.

Or some delicious pond scum.

This isn't that fucking Guiness commercial again is it?

So, did you not like the commercial or something?

Holy crap, nicwolff. What a trick. Had no idea you could do that.

It's not a commercial. It's a case study of the similarity between the widely known features of Apple software are the items on In-N-Out's menu. Playing a movie backwards is like ordering a quadruple quadruple 'animal style'. The first time you hear of it you think your friends are trying to pull a fast one on you.

not are the items, and the items

nicwolff, I feel vaguely embarassed that I didn't know you could do that.

jonson, it's not that the commercial is bad. It's that it's seemingly played at every fucking ad break over here.
