Iowa plays Penn State tonight on BTN. To advertise the game, BTN apparently enlisted the ghost of Salvador Dalí to create this commercial spot because it is incredibly surreal:
There is a lot of crazy packed into that 15 second-spot. Is BTN expecting the action in tonight's game to get a little freaky? Did someone slip some LSD into the water supply over there?
Or maybe these are clips from movies from some bizarre alternate realities:
In this one Fran auditions for the role of the Count in HBO's new Sesame Street -- if you can't count, prepare for some Deadwood-style Wrath...
Here Fran stars in a new take on Mr. Holland's Opus, where the high school music class is replaced by an army of Herkys and the only music is the Iowa Fight Song on a constant loop.
This is either a clip from a Freaky Friday-style body-swapping comedy starring Fran and Herky or a glimpse from a nightmarish remake of The Fly.
And this must be from Herky's starring role in Fear and Loathing in University Heights.
Or maybe not. It's a weird ad, is all.
