The Truth About HD

So I've always thought that television commercials would eventually become people's primary source of entertainment. They seem to get more and more innovative, self-referential, and narratively complex as other mediums deteriorate in a pathetic attempt to keep up with the demands of the masses. Maybe not. But I think it's cool that this commercial I saw on tv yesterday uses what I consider a conspiracy theory aesthetic.

This other one with the dude is really more of just an action movie thing, like Mission Impossible. The line that really gets me from the first one is, "The truth your cable company doesn't want you to hear."
