Stan Lee Hates Car Commercials

I generally don't post twice in one day because a.) It may give off the impression that I have nothing better to do than sit around and look at shit on the internet and b.) It means I have nothing better to do than sit around and look at shit on the internet.

However there are times when I make an exception and this is one of those times.

Stan Lee is a legend, when he speaks, we should all listen closely. I mean the guy created some of the greatest comic book characters of the 20th century, Spiderman, Iron Man, Aquaman.


Turns out that in between shooting cameos in Marvel movies, Mr. Lee has time to do these Stan's Rants videos for his YouTube channel. They're pretty funny and I recommend watching "Thor's Flight" if you only watch one other episode.

In this particular video Stan rants about how he hates car commercials and while his observations may seem a little "Rooneyesque" (Andy, not Mickey) I have to hand it to him, he's right. I like it when car commercials go beyond the usual "car porn" shots because then I've got something to take away from the commercial other than "ooooooo, pretty" and "wait, why the fuck wasn't I hired to shoot this?! these guy are fucking hacks".

Seriously though, car commercials are some of the worst commercials on TV and they should be better given the amount of money companies are willing to throw at them. Maybe they should hire Stan Lee to write their commercials, now that'd be something to get excited about.
