Ted and Gloria and Matthew and Alexandra

Canadian Tire has announced that their new ad campaign will not feature Ted the handyman and his wife Gloria. Considering that they both looked like they were running late for their gender reassignment surgeries, I’m not surprised.

What surprises me more is that Canadian Tire felt it necessary to make an announcement.

Did Ted and Gloria have a following? It’s not as though they were intriguing like the Taster's Choice couple a few years back.

I think in order not to upset their fans, perhaps there should have been a commercial reporting on the couple having been mauled in the parking lot of a Home Depot or while extolling the virtues of a non Canadian Tire product.

This is news in our country? I wonder sometimes why I'm so proud to be Canerdian. Dale, are you as ashamed to live in Richmond Hill? I hear it's a snobby outpost full of suburban trash. You so don't belong -- you're sharp. I dig that about you. I ramble when I post comments, but you probaby didn't notice. Do you like cheese?

Dale said...

A little north, a little nicer - well that applies to everyone else maybe in the Hill. I'm only here because of the huge Canadian Tire that just opened. They've got cheese you know! And they encourage rambling!

I'm inundating you with comments, Dale.

Hey Dale, I'm waiting for the couple who does the "Canadian Legal Will Kit" ads to announce their divorce and pack it in. Why is the woman Australian? I don't get that? Is that supposed to be cool or something? Anyway, nice blog.

Dale said...

NV - Is it la font or le font? Whatever, apparently it was too small. God told me to change it and I did. He's still talking. Shutup God!

Reese - I'm with you, those boogers need to call it a day. And I'm there for any of them if they need any 'splaining.
