I recently showed this old commercial to Mister Tristan (the 7 year old human being, not the blog), I guess because it's a guy thing, and he loved it. Of course!
So, in case you missed it the first time around, please enjoy it again. I am continually amazed at old jokes or videos like this one, that given the passage of a few years, basically become completely new again and experience a second birth. If the embedded video does not play, the YouTube link is here.
The (very tenuous) connection to Ultrarunning, naturally, pertains to enjoying backcountry experiences. John West is a UK company, I believe, so the red salmon depicted may be from that neck of the woods. But whenever I see this commercial I am reminded of Alaska, where I had the pleasure of experiencing several business trips during my working career for the Defense Department.
I was able to get away for some backcountry runs; while none were in such a pretty setting as this river, the runs nevertheless were stunning in their contrast to my everyday runs here in south-central PA.
I did find myself continually looking over my shoulder for predators, though, for man-eating critters no longer inhabit Penn's Woods (unfortunately).
