PARALLEL UNIVERSE: What’s the Big Deal About the Super Bowl Car Wash Commercial?

  • By David M. Kinchen 
  Everybody’s talking about the upcoming Mercedes Car Wash commercial that will be aired at the Super Bowl on Sunday. Here’s a link to the commercial starring Kate Upton: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS6mjbOOhhA&feature=player_embedded
As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one car wash scene worth watching: Joy Harmon washing an old Plymouth in the 1967 classic movie “Cool Hand Luke,” directed by Stuart Rosenberg and starring Paul Newman, George Kennedy, Strother Martin, Harry Dean Stanton and Dennis Hopper.

PARALLEL UNIVERSE: What's the Big Deal About the Super Bowl Car Wash Commercial?

“Cool Hand Luke” is in my personal Top 10 favorite movies and the boys on the chain gang are really steamed up watching beautiful Joy, called simply “The Girl” in the flick, soap down that old Mopar sedan.

And while we’re at it, I don’t blame Beyoncé for lip syncing the National Anthem. It’s impossible to sing and impossible to play on a wind instrument, and I speak from experience as a trombonist and tuba player in high school bands and orchestra. It’s long past time we get a new national anthem. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it!
