The phrase "the crack of dawn" suggests to me that dawn is wearing some of those trendy, low-riding, you-only-THINK-they're-retro-I-grew-up-in-the-70's-and-know-better-you-punk bell bottoms, along with a shirt that won't stay tucked in back. Maybe dawn is a plumber.
I don't have cable OR antennae TV at my house, so the commercials you folks get to see in between brain-rotting episodes of whatever sitcom is currently popular end up giving me a wide miss. For the most part I'm okay with that. But every so often now I have to surf out to adcritic.com and see what I'm missing. Friday I saw this, and nearly ruined a good pair of pants laughing non-removable parts of me all the way off. It's a KFC ad, and it really takes me back. Back to when bell-bottoms were starting to be uncool, and you'd feel really stupid if you didn't pull your pants up.
Oh, wait. That's now. Never mind.
