The Squid and the Thai

Yes, the title of this post is a lame attempt at a pun based on a Noah Baumbach movie—lame because I couldn't find something to rhyme with the word "whale" that made sense in the context of what you are about to see. It's a Thai commercial for Dentyne gum—clever, sure, but borderline creepy (and perhaps inappropriately suggestive?). Watch:

Oh, the things that would fall out of my mouth if this actually happened in real life....

  1. I don't understand Prince. What would fall out of your mouth? Gentle words of wisdom? A pithy bon mot? A corn dog?

  2. John, you are much too kind. (Or naive?)

  3. Naive, no. I like to think of it as a mix of southern gentility and midwestern sincerity.
