Serious Torque for Serious Builders

This is my dream commercial.  If I were a bonehead.  Which I am.  Thanks to Steven Brown for the link.



I wanna be a bonehead too! it'll be fun and sweet.. cute commerical!!


There's a world of people out there that need you mag.


On the lighter side.



These are seriously great shots. Brilliant ladder improvs. Thanks for cluing me in to the cutting edge of human ingenuity.


I don't like that commercial! This is the first time I've seen it.
Nope ... I'm picturing the condition of that other worker's body, and there's nothing funny about it.
Like the commercial for Knorr's soups, where crackers drop into bowls of soup on a counter. All I can think of it what a pain in the a__ it will be to clean that up.
Hm. Maybe I need therapy.


Sorry you don't like it Kate but it struck me funny because it's so obviously a dummy the way it flops around on the auger bit. I do know what you mean about the exploding soup though. When you're a spiller you spend your life screaming slow-motion 'Noooooooooo!' as you drop something or knock over a full glass, so that commercial is truly painful.
