Anne Heche tries to get off stretcher?

I don’t know why but I’ve been fascinated by the Anne Heche car accident situation. First of all, it’s just so sad. She was in a wig shop earlier in the day and by the day’s end, she’s gone. Or to be more factually accurate, almost gone. She was declared brain dead a few days later but being kept alive for possible organ donation. I watched a video of her speeding through a neighborhood, recorded on a Ring doorbell camera.

And then there’s the helicopter footage capturing the confusion mixed with the work of the EMS and firefighters. The house is mostly obscured by trees but soon the paramedics emerge with a body on a stretcher. Obviously at this point in the story no one (or at least just a handful) knew it was Anne, especially the those in the helicopter (why the narrator says “he” instead of “she”). It’s like a scene from an action movie, so there’s the fact that most of us are desensitized to this horrific type of situation. But then my heart rate immediately went up when the person laying on the stretcher being rushed into the ambulance pops up dramatically.

I was creeped out the first time seeing this. Now, after a few days of processing and watching it again (and reading many comments about it), I think she’s in pain. She sits up and reaches to her legs/feet, possibly because they’re hurting. The response, as stated by some comments on YouTube, etc, is a biological reaction to a traumatic event. Evidently this is common after major accidents and when drugs are involved, who knows how the body reacts.

It’s just so sad. Her final moments, especially the scene on the stretcher, will stick with me for awhile. We aren’t promised tomorrow, and every day I’m alive, that fact sinks in more and more.

Kia Commercial – The Bear, The Eagle, and the Music

Wasn’t Kia a brand that people used as the butt of jokes about 10-15 years ago? I swear they were but look how far they’ve come, at least in regards to their style. The fleet of vehicles they’re manufacturing is simply beautiful and the Kia Sorrento fits right in. Check out an ad with the SUV, a bear, and an eagle.


A breakdown. I’m not going to say the eagle ruined this guy’s fishing trip but it definitely stole the thrill of the hunt from him. And what did the bear contribute? A whole lotta nothin’! This guy was trying to get away for a few hours and now there’s one less fish to waste time catching. Soon enough he’ll have to go back to normal life so the big bird kinda stole some solitude from the guy, too.

Can we talk about the awkwardness that is sure to happen after the fish was dropped at the guy’s feet? The eagle and the bear are just sitting there staring. Now what? Do they join him while he’s fishing? Does he offer them a few bites of the fish? I’m sure they don’t hang out together often, this bear and eagle, so do they quietly go their separate ways? What’s this guy supposed to do now, say “thank you”? It’s not like the bear or eagle know English, anyway. I guess the ad is saying that KIA makes a good man. How, you might be asking? Well, it’s all about the music…

The Music. The soundtrack of this commercial is a song called “What Makes a Good Man?” by The Heavy. Here’s the full song…

The Heavy is an English band probably most well-known from their song “How You Like Me Now?”

Follow them on Instagram here: @theheavy and you can find more of their music on YouTube here.

Subaru’s Adorable Weiner Dog Commercial …and More!

I’ve posted about Subaru before with their “Underdog” commercial (that may or may not have made me tear up AGAIN just looking for the link) and now they’re back with an ad that won’t have you crying, but instead laughing. Take a look…

Dachshunds have long been called weiner dogs or hot dogs, so this ad playfully plays into that endearing trait of the long dogs. When a group of golden-colored dogs pull up to a hot dog trailer called “Wanna Wienie” with the slogan “If you wanna wienie, just speak,” they bark and the hot dogs are served. Then a little family of Dachshunds appear, and appear offended at the sight of these other dogs shamelessly sitting by a plateful of yummy hot dogs.

A growl rumbles from one of the bigger wiener dogs and if you’ve ever been around this breed, you know how accurate that is! Adorable little things, but as feisty as can be.

The hungry dogs think twice once the two little pups make a connection, then they drive away in their Subaru Crosstrek, “Dog tested. Dog approved.”

In a related Subaru ad, a young golden retriever and a friend stop at a stop light when a cop car pulls up next to them. We’ve all been there, haven’t we? The nerves going haywire!

Do you like these ads from Subaru? Does it make you love Subaru even more, or more importantly, do you love dogs twice as much as you did before the ads? Chime in below and thanks for dropping in…
