Back with some shoes

     So I know that I haven't been updating, but I forewarned you that I wouldn't be. Anyway, now that I'm back I'm very tired and homework filled. Since I happened to have some backup material on-hand, you get to see it.
     Recently I've noticed one of the very few commercials I enjoy now days for an odd product... shoes. But these are no ordinary shoes! Oh no! These are "smart" shoes. Yes, smart shoes. They have a microprocesor which, based on some obviously extravagant calculation, actually changes the hardness/softness of your heel. According to one site:
     "The microprocessor is located in the arch of the shoe, and drives a tiny screw and cable system that adjusts the heel cushion depending on the signals sent back by an electric sensor coupled to a magnet."
     Sound nifty? With a $250 price tag it better. My questions? How long does the battery last? And can you recharge it? And why, WHY in gods name would you ever need a shoe this crazy? Seriously! Like, unless your job is to run around 24/7 over continually more uncomfortable terrain... Either way, that doesn't change the awesomeness of the commercial. Both original and with good music. I'll give you both the commercial and the music because I'm just that cool.

I had seen those commercials. I was thinking about doing a post like this on my blog, but I guess you beat me to it.

I'm not sure whether I love or hate those commercials, but there hasn't been a commercial since 'Cogs' that has persistently grabbed and held my attention.
