Dan O'Neill WTF!!! One of the single most egregious and damaging screw-overs ever. Disney vs Dan O'Neill.

I paused the garbage and went to dinner. Now I'm back waiting for the movie to restart. I can't help but wonder if anyone really thinks that this kind of advertising is effective. It interrupts the flow of the movie which makes people angry, most people are smart enough to mute it, Others might just abandon the movie altogether. Perhaps YouTube out to change their metrics to determine how often a video is abandoned within an embedded commercial. Why would anyone think that this level of interruption would be a good thing for their product.  Mr. Happy continues to yammer and fondle his book. I'm going to give it one more hand of solitaire and then I'm gone.

Now he's rubbing the leatherette cover as if he's pleasuring himself as he yammers on. He has a teapot in front of him to show us what a new-age kinda guy he is. I sorta wanna have Statham break into the ad and beat him to a bloody pulp.

I understand the use of ads, but 10-20 minutes of shilling for a motivational book motivated me to mute it, play a couple of games of solitaire and make a note to never ever buy anything from Mr. Happy Plaidshirt. Not only that but I guess I'm going to have to ban "Action Movies" from my feed. Very, very, disappointing.

I never thought I'd be so jealous of David Mitchell.

Idiots!!! Not Louis Armstrong, those vocals were done by Louis Prima who was of Italian descent and his wife was native American. Disney did some hideously racist material, but King Louis was Louis Prima. Oh and BTW Louis Prima was a trumpet player too. Over interpret much? Check out this clip https://youtu.be/rV8HrpOu1FA

Oh Action Movies, you are despicable, horrible people. This is unconscionable. Mr. empty teapot empty cup, empty head continues gesticulate and a nice 2 hour movie has turned into a marathon of marketing tripe. Damn you.

and on and on and on and on and on ... will he never stop gesturing and grinning. Dear God he's finally decided to read us selections from the damn book. I'm going to find it on Amazon and discuss this intrusion into my time in detail. I'm probably overestimating that he's been twinkling at the camera for 30 minutes, but I swear it feels like an hour.

The embedded ads are overly long and intrusive. I'll watch somewhere else.

+Eat Your Kimchi I actually have sickle cell anemia disease and a really bad heart murmur. Usually people see these as simple manageable diseases but with sickle cell what happens sometimes from either bad nutrition(i'm a college student on the ramen diet :P) or lack of iron and oxygen is that my blood thickens to the point where it becomes blocked in a valve or a blood vessel and the pain is unimaginable. the only way I can explain this is think of how it would feel if you could feel your organs getting cut off from blood flow and then slowly shutting down. This is called a crisis. The only thing that get's me through is the support from my family and watching you guys :)
