Woah, I’m in a river!
[American Express / Amex Kayaking TV Commercial / Ad]
This might only be funny only if you love Aziz Ansari (Tom Haverford from Parks and Recreation), but it’s my absolute favorite commercial right now.
How does he make kayaking look so ridiculous?! (Does he even know what kayaking is?) And yet he’s so full of joy and life that he makes it charming.
The other guy is also great…. the way he says “ok” cracks me up.
Hulu plays this over and over, but it still makes me laugh. That big, goofy grin on Aziz’s face as he does his little Nutcracker-fairy-cum-kayak-enthusiast dance… Can’t get enough of it.
It’s really only marginally related to Amex, but it’s fun enough that I remember it anyway.
Not too annoying, even after the 17th time: 5/5
I actually remember what the commerical is about: 4/5
OVERALL: 5/5, Clever Commercial
