I just heard an ad on "Internet radio" for a website that gives weather forecasts. The characters were these layabout British lout rock stars who are very obviously supposed to be the Gallaghers from Oasis. (The actors are obviously Americans doing Spinal Tap British accents--Spinal Tap may also be an inspiration for the ad.) One of them suggests trashing the hotel room, and the other says, "Wait, let's check the weather so we'll know what it's like outside when we get thrown out." I laughed. I'm not going to use the service, though. Who needs to around here? The weather's always the same. Predictably nice but kind of boring. As for Spinal Tap, it never came out in Spain. They've never heard of it. Someone ought to release it on video.
