    That was obscure but somehow I remember seeing that commercial somewhere.

    So THAT’S what you look like when somebody sucks your soul out of your ear!
    Amazing work, as always.

    i’ve seen J R Hartley flogging DVDs on Meath Street on Saturdays. Must look out for that shop on Marrowbone Lane.

    And he seemed such a sweet old guy on the ads, never judge a book by it’s cover …

    @ Everyone: Thanks for the comments folks!

    @ Hiller – The curio shop on Marrowbone Lane is between a head shop and a chipper that burns down every six months and reopens with a different name. The strange thing is that it can only be seen from the corner of your eye – If you look at it directly it seems to take on the appearance of a boarded up advice clinic belonging to a long-dead Fianna Fáil councillor.

    Also: never buy a DVD from JR Hartley because 7 days after you watch IT YOU GET THIS WEIRDPHONECALLOMIGOD!!!1!!1! Plus, they’re region 4 knock offs.
