This Cheered Me Up

John cheered me up with food, of course. I had my little breakdown and then he gave me a chocolate eclair and a fresh batch of hummus. Isn’t he the greatest? Then he showed me some sketchy websites and video clips with Jimmy Kimmel and his kind (No, I’m not judgemental). Amusing to John, but irritating to me. Oh well, can’t expect perfection every time.

After a few minutes of that god-awful trash, he switched over to ChinesePod, which I love. We listened to the lesson on mild swearing. That was fun. Then, I don’t know what made him think of it, but he played that J. Ralph song, the one from the VW Jetta commercial where this dude is totally panicked and on his way to a church wedding where a woman and another guy are about to say “I do.” Argh, can you feel the tension? Anyway, the music is just so beautiful and melancholic… just a second into the music, and I recall every juicy bit of the clip, despite the commercial being several years old. And what a perfect diversion. I had to find it. Immediately. John spent like 15 minutes going through the Google results. I grew a bit impatient and went to get my laptop. Got it on the first try. “vw wedding ad clip.” Soooo good. I swear though, VW HAS to make a part 2. I know the damn ad only lasts a few seconds, but I’m hooked every time I watch it. I just have to know how this story ends! Without further ado, check it here.
