Late Night TV

So, I was watching TV kind of late last night, and I was somewhat taken by amused surprise by some of the late night TV ads that run over here in Baltimore.

Most notably, there was one commercial where a very bored looking, and not-too-attractive woman was working some sort of service job, when her boss starts yelling at her. Cut-scene to same woman finding her salvation while looking for alternative employment, like Anne Hathaway in the Devil Wears Prada.

Note: this commercial was awash in all the third-rate acting we've all grown to love about late-night, low-budget advertisements.

Cut-scene to same woman, yet again, this time working a brass pole, presumably Without her top, with an equally-bored-looking expression on her face, but with a hint of determination now etched on her features. Like Mary Tyler Moore before her, she was "going to make it any way:" despite the huge and unsightly tattoo splattered entirely over her upper right arm. Like a rough, Anne Hathaway. Hathaway. Whatever. Again, topless.

Cut-scene to text that reads: "Make $1000 a night, part-time." (I think it was "a night," I was kind of drowsy when the commercial aired).

Cut-scene to same bored but now-determined, not-too-attractive woman, defiantly throwing her service uniform at her boss, intent on her new Anne Hathaway life working at:

Larry Flynt's Hustler Club.

I was very relieved when I reached the punchline, because until I read the name of the business I was sure you were saying that DeVry University was offering pole-dancing classes now.

In Baltimore? I could see this in Vegas which has as many poles as people to throw wadded up singles at them. But Baltimore?

Uniform or no clothes? Its a tough call but I'm glad you don't have to be pretty or in shape to pole dance and make big money. From suckers.

Have I ever mentioned how pathetic I think strip clubs are? Maybe for bachelor parties but beyond those rare occasions, I just do not see the appeal. Isn't that what high speed internet is for?
