So, why haven’t I seen any geek blogs talk about this commercial!?
The other night I was watching TV and the cutest commercial I’ve seen all year came on. It’s a family trick-or-treating with each member dressed as Star Wars characters. Awesome! Not only is it a family, it is a family of color! It is not too often we see complete, black family units on television in a positive light. I feel like the days of the Huxtables, Jeffersons, and Evans type families have long been replaced by wives of former basketball players or hip hop moguls. This 30 second commercial – which I rewinded dozens of times when I first saw it – had be squealing with joy. It’s darn cute. Look at that Baby Leia strapped to her father.
Tick Tock. Tick Tock.
What’s that? Just ignore it. That biological clock does not know when to shut up.
