For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a dog person. Not because I have an enhanced sense of smell and a tendency to slobber profusely every time someone mentions rawhide but because, when given the option between dogs and cats, man’s best friend wins every time. How could you not love something that gets that excited every time you walk through the front door, even if you’ve been gone all day? I tell ya, if I ever meet a woman who doesn’t require constant attention but still shakes her ass and jumps on me when I come home, I’ll put a ring on her finger. But my detest for felines goes much further than their alarming lack of personality. I’m also deathly allergic to them. Just being in the same room as one typically causes my throat to swell up and sometimes even results in an outbreak of hives. It’s not a good time and that’s why (despite having absolutely no clue what’s going on) I so thoroughly enjoyed this commercial for Folksam, a Swedish insurance agency.
That, and the brazen use of R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly.”
