Comedy Central's made an ad for Popeyes Chicken, in the style of a movie trailer. It features two "star-crossed lovers" who fall in love but face the drama of the girl's pop, who doesn't think the boy is "fair," enough. As in county fair. But it's also a play off the "fair deal," from Popeyes. You can see the jokes coming a mile away, but I appreciate the attempt at southern gentility.

    Everybody who once produced entertainment/"content" now produces commercials! Comedy Central, Funny or Die, CNN, Buzzfeed, you name it! And advertising agencies just sat idly by and watched.
