i logged on today and got mike myers from wayne's world holding up a Pepsi can with the blurb "surprisingly non-catholic" beside it, was kinda funny cuz it looked like a tag to a cola ad from the early 90s. something that could almost be in the dudley moore flick "crazy people" which is quite a charmingly funny film, mainly due to the mock ads. they really are the genius element of that film. some classics from the flick are:
"Forget Paris. The French can be annoying. Come to Greece. We're nicer."
"Come ... IN the Bahamas"
"Jaguar -- the car for men who want handjobs from beautiful women"
For a new horror movie called The Freak, the ad campaign states: "It won't just scare you, it will fuck you up for life!"
i refreshed the page a few times to get other combos and they weren't nearly as rewarding. Is "surprisingly non-catholic" a quote from a movie or something? like possibly kevin smith's dogma? i had smile on my face for a few mins after seeing that, was just so random and fitting at the same time.
...but it popped back in my mind later. upon further musing I gotta say, to whoever does the blurbs, "surprisingly non-catholic" is kinda safe. i only really liked it's effect on the pepsi shot. if it's not from something and there is no context or inside joke i'm missing out on, it kinda feels like nerf rebellion. i know it's a joke but if you had put "surprisingly non-jewish" for example, considering this is a film appreciation site that mainly celebrates hollywood movies, that would actually be a surprise worthy of BULLWORTH status. it's also easy to joke at catholics over jews due to the sensitivity of the issue, which is lame. in fact, ironically, there is nothing surprising about it being non-catholic, it's expected.
oh and BTW i'm not a follower of either religion, just think the joke is more effective the other way.
anyway totally random lol, but 'idle chatter' in my head.
