Want to get away?

Rarely does a TV commerical come along that actually makes me laugh out loud. Last night during the back-to-back bowl game watching, I saw two of Southwest Airlines’ “want to get away?” ads, and both were great. According to You Tube, they’re over a year old, but I can’t remember ever seeing them before. Kind of reminiscient of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (when it was a good and much-watched show in the Bob Saget era), the ads have that cringe-causing quality that makes you laugh at others’ expense. And who doesn’t love crazy breakdancing and throwing remote controls through flat panel televisions?
