Battlestar Galactica and a rather unfortunate commercial pairing.

Adland: 

Remember the "Good old days" when media buying actually involved knowing what might happen in the show advertised on, and tailoring your ads content after it? Yeah, neither do I really, but they say stuff like that did happen. These days with chunk-buying and no idea when things air, random fuckups happen instead - few as amusing as the combination of this Battlestar Galactica scene and following commercial though. If you don't see the funny immediately, wait for the lyrics to kick in. Youch!

    OK, big important question before I hit play — since I only just started season 4.5 on DVD, are there any spoilers in there?

    You wouldn't believe how hard it is to not find out what's happened on that show.

    THERE'S A MAJOR SPOILER IN THERE! So uhm, yeah avoid it if you want to wait for the whole show it's a cracking spoiler.
    Sorry I didn't warn. I could care less about the shows. I only watch the ads between the shows. I'm that crazy.
