We watched the Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie, Fallen Angel Sunday night. As usual, the commercials were as good as the movie, and I found myself tearing up as I watched them. I’m usually a blubbering idiot by the end of a Hallmark HOF movie, so primed is my tear-pump.
It’s not that the end of the movies are usually any great surprise; Howie and I predicted this one’s plot elements before they occured. They’re predictable, sure, but still good.
One of the commercials, not a Hallmark one, cracked me up! It’s for Lazarus-Macy’s, it depicts several beleaguered men hunkered down in malls and stores; all are holding shopping bags. One absentmindedly swings a bright red purse between his legs. Another is sprawled out on a display bed, kicking his feet in boredom.
Then it fades to the tagline, just presented in text:
Shoppers bring husbands.
I love it!
