Some music transports me to teenage years so easily and lately a couple of commercials have opened the time travel portals.
For months now, the "quit smoking by using nicotine patches or gum" commercials have become some of my favorites. The newly quit people are avoiding temptation of going on smoking breaks with their peers, or not giving in to smoking when watching someone in the car next to them light up and as a reward, this darling little rock band appears on the table or in the car console singing Rare Earth's "I Just Want to Celebrate". The little curly headed lead singer with the baggy pants is having such a great time. The other great thing about the commercial is the newly quit person does some little mini subdued rocking out thing with the band. I love that! Seriously, don't we all kind of do the same little thing?
The other commercial that I love is the air drummer in the Volkswagen commercial air jamming out to Rush. Cracks me up every time.
So...here we are, in a brand new year...2013 already, how the heck did that happen? One step at a time, I guess. I really do just want to celebrate...where's my air microphone anyway?
