The GTE Trivection Oven -- a major gag in the 30 Rock
pilot -- turns out to be real
Now, is Tina Fey:
a. really clever for getting away with tweaking her corporate owners' noses by making fun of how big appliance corporations own entertainment companies, and the whole schtick about how Alec Baldwin's character is looking for that "third heat"?
b. a total whore for spending a minute showing her fictional boss touting the virtues of the GTE Trivection Oven, as if this were the 1950's, when you had your fictional characters tout the corporate sponsor's wares? (I didn't even realize that there were ads during the show for the GTE Trivection Oven, 'cause I know where the "skip 30 seconds" button is.)
c. the future?
Discuss. (And try not to use the phrase "now we're cooking with gas.")
PS See? no more caps. Haven't figured out how to make the titles explode yet. Workin' on that.
Isn't < h2 >post title< /h2 > working? (without the spaces within the tag of course)
Better "uncapsed" indeed.
She's all three.
She's bought into convergence and synergy?
I like the bold better - makes it stand out more than the all caps.
I think it's the future - how else to get around Tivo and force us to watch ads?
Although they didn't do it as good as "The Truman Show". I love when Jim Carrey looks at Laura Linney and asks her if she's crazy as she whores coffee or whatever.
I buy her story, that she was looking for bafflegab when she went to the GE website and found that product.
What Baldwin says is supposedly right from the website.
He doesn't change it all.
And you know what?
It's %$#@%$# funny.
