The wife who is married to a mime marvels at her husbands ability to order a pizza at Little Caesars. Then the son appears, and like any offspring he's 50% mom 50% dad. Because mimes man, they have an entire MIME tag to themselves. Mimes in adland, the over-used gag. Mimes are the advertising worlds go-to weird thing. 50% mime is 100% weirder. This is ad-math, trust me, it makes sense. We think 2+2=5.

    The math does ad up. This commercial is brilliant. This is SUPERBOWL material.

    The math in no way adds up. Why is ordering a pizza "Crazy"? And most importantly, are we not going to address this child's over the top effeminate response? Is that supposed to play into this ad? Are they inferring that mimes are gay?
