Life Imitates Art

Here are two commercials to watch. I believe that you will see a startling similarity emerge that will shake you to the core (or maybe just halfway to the core).

So far, so good. It's your basic ad for cosmetics, showing a heavily airbrushed woman who looks somewhat like an android (gynoid?), poncing around in an empty, black, out-of-focus room, interspersed with product shots against a stark white background. (I'm always a little saddened when the real product doesn't create lines of light in contour around my wife's face.) I don't know to much about the product's specific properties.

What I know for sure is that it bares a startling similarity to a fictional product I have seen before.

That's awesome, kingmonkey. It does bear a remarkable resemblance to the real thing. There's one (more) beauty product I won't be buying!

But Nethie, don't you want to live forever?

I always knew, kingmonkey, that if you were able to post things on the Front Page that they'd be gems! Some people are just born weirder than others. You're a natural. 😉
