Thank You, Google, For Having A Heart
I haven't had television for nearly 14 years. When I was in college, I realized that I had no self control between choosing television or homework. So, snip, the cable cord got cut. Over the years, I've occasionally considered the combo-promo of internet + cable, but ultimately I can't bring myself to PAY FOR being advertised to. In my small way of protesting the media, I opt NOT to have television.
That being said, I travel a fair bit for work and I do enjoy a bit of HBO in my hotel room. The other day at a hotel, I happened upon the Google commercial Play Your Heart Out:
The heart; its a funny thing. Yeah, its 1, 2, 3, 4 chambers that pump blood through the body, but it does so much more. It pines, it sinks, it soars; bands have heart, stories tug at it, and games send it racing. The heart wants a kiss to send it fluttering and it wants it now. It wants heavy hearts, heart racers, and heart stoppers. Sometimes the heart loves hating and sometimes the heart hates loving, but more than anything, the heart just wants to feel. There are about 2,500,000,000 heartbeats in a lifetime; you should feel every one of them.
Thank you, Google, for having a heart. In the midst of news reports and prescription drug commercials that lead me to believe the world has become depraved and hopeless, you beam a little ray of sunlight. Thank you.
