WHAT

I just saw a TV commercial for Fantasy, a fragrance from Britney Spears. First of all, the Poptart still has enough mojo to hawk fragrance? Secondly, in the ad she’s playing a goddess being pursued by a hunter who shoots her in the back with an arrow, after which the narrator chirps “And they lived happily ever after” as they embrace.

...This explains a lot, doesn’t it.

ETA: Okay, I just saw it again. It’s the myth of Artemis and Actaeon, rewritten for Twilight fans — the arrow thing is totally the goddess’s fault, because she’s so beautiful that “he couldn’t help himself, so he did something kind of crazy”...

I’m sorry, I need to step away from the computer and foam with rage for a bit.

Return of the Killer Edit: Apparently this is not a new product, I just managed to completely miss the ad campaign the first time out. Alas, my luck could only last so long...
