Funny Amish Ad You Have to See
I am usually not a fan of the Main Stream Media's attempts at explaining or exploiting the Amish. But Slate, the on-line magazine, has a story about a funny ad for PowerAde featuring drag-racing Amish hay wagon drivers that you really should look at. The director of the ad is Aaron Ruell, the nerdy brother in Napoleon Dynamite, one of the strangest and funniest movies I have ever seen. Unfortunately, looked at logically, the ad makes no sense, and a suit by Coca Cola resulted in Pepsi Cola pulling the ad before it got much play. But you can see it at the Slate site and it is certainly worth a chuckle.
