Being Helpful


Usually you have the stroke after eating fast food.

Jack-in-the-Box commercials haven't been all that funny the last few years so I figured I'd be charitable and give them some suggestions about how to improve one of their latest ads, "Training Video."

First, they should just cut everything after the customer's head explodes.

Second, I think we all want the narrative to have some closure. That's why I suggest that the final shot of the commercial should be of the cashier. Her face and chest should be copiously confettied and she should be screaming in ego-shattering terror, hands futiley upturned, densely dappled by shards of cerebral euphemism.

That will sell some damn cheeseburgers.

Your move, Mr. Box.
