Western Civilization Edges Closer To Nadir: Those E*Trade Babies Getting Their Own Movie
I saw this this article from the AV Club a few weeks ago. I was hoping against hope that it would be revealed as a joke, but apparently it is all too real: Fox is making a movie based on E*Trade’s talking baby commercials. Presumably, the smuggest baby on earth will be the protagonist:
Good god, man. Who would watch this? Is there not enough baby-related entertainment out there? And how could this possibly work as a movie? If there’s one thing the Geico Cavemen taught us, it’s that 30 second commercials make great fodder for television shows. So why not expand that formula to a full hour and a half movie. It’s the next logical step.
