My personal choice was the MS Office commercials - employee as sports 
hero. While watching them
I was incredibly impressed by the hyperbole - it was about as out of 
touch as King George (all of them combined)
. I was waiting to see another one - but even better - tonight I saw a 
parody commercial - Tim Hortons (large
Canadian donut & coffee emporium) has one - it was so cool. Battered 
looking employee pulls
a piece of paper out of the copier - launches into a celebration worthy 
of a penalty in the NFL
people look at him strange and he quiets down - and goes to lunch - at 
Tim Hortons of course.

You Americans are so silly.
