    This one has had me laughing every time I've seen it this week, usually because I'm looking away from the TV and my reaction so far is always "What did he say?"

    Brilliant marketing. I don't know if it will help a company that does not have its ship together, but it's a great great ad.

    Clicked on the second link, and the video started playing. Two thoughts:
    1.) The WKYC studio looks GREAT. Way better than it used to.
    2.) THAT'S Robin Svoboda? Jesus.

    To me, it seems kind of stupid. I don't think it would be funny the fourth or fifth time you watched it.

    And really, who would ship a pair of $15 pants from K-Mart.

    Actually, you can ship anything from K-Mart...they are just using pants as the joke (although they do use "bed" and "drawers" in the ad as well).

    Who would ship pants?

    I do it from Lane Bryant. If they don't have my size in the store, they'll have it shipped to my house for free. I get them faster than having to wait until their next shipment comes in, and I don't have to drive back to the store. If you know what size you're looking for, and you don't want to have to keep going back, having them ship it to your house is actually awesome.
