Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.


Real Men of Genius

These have been such a part of my world for the last ten years that I often forget that they haven't been for many others. They started as a sports radio thing, but I think they've branched out into TV and video. I consider them one of the most successful and funniest commercial campaigns ever. Below are a couple of examples of probably over a hundred, so if you want more just do a search for Real Men of Genius and you'll find plenty.

Mr. Stadium Scoreboard Marriage Proposal Guy

Bud Light Presents Real Men of Genius
(Real Men of Genius)

Today we salute you Mr. Stadium Scoreboard Marriage Proposal Guy.
(Mr. Stadium Scoreboard Marriage Proposal Guy.)
You've combined the three things you love most in this world:
Your girlfriend, your team, and lots and lots of attention.
(Everyone look at me.)
Your first proposal: her hand in marriage.
Your second proposal: two more jumbo chili dogs.
(Chili cheese.)
It's the perfect plan, unless her name is spelled wrong,
she's in bathroom, or she says, "No."
(Pretty please.)
So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, Oh, Mr. bachelor on the big screen.
And remember, that even if she says, "No,"
We'll always say, yes.
(Mr. Stadium Scoreboard Marriage Proposal Guy.)

Mr. Boneless Buffalo Wing Inventor

Bud Light Presents Real Men of Genius
(Real Men of Genius)

Today we salute you Mr. Boneless Buffalo Wing Inventor.
(Mr. Boneless Buffalo Wing Inventor.)
How do you improve upon a meat that is breaded, buttered, double-fried, and dipped in bleu cheese dressing?
Remove the only part that doesn't contain fat.
(Don't need no stinkin' bone.)
Gone now is the race to eat the drumsticks first,
Leaving the wings for the other poor suckers.
(Hands off my drummies.)
Is it leg? Is it wing? Is it rear end?
Now every chunk is as identical as it is indistinguishable.
(Hope I'm not eating rear end.)
So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, boneless wing mastermind,
Because we don't have a bone to pick with you.
(Mr. Boneless Buffalo Wing Inventor.)

I remember when it was Real American Heroes. :)

Me too. In preparing this post I learned they changed it because of 9/11. I didn't know that.

I rather guessed they did, since they went away for awhile, then came back with the new name. It's in poor taste to call someone a real hero when compared with the people dying while trying to save others.
