I Lift Things Up and Put Them Down...

Every time I see this commercial I laugh. I laugh so hard I snort. His voice follows me on the train to work and I think about how can I put him into one of my stories. He is the epitome of  a character archetype.

It's kind of contagious too. Anytime I ask the hubby to get me this or that he says, "I lift things up and put them down." At least he's moved on from quoting Antoine Dodson. Anytime I'd ask a question or do something very Charli-like he'd say, "You are really dumb, for reals."

What characters from commercials make you laugh, stick with you, or even influence your writing?

  2. "Where's the beef?" That Wendy's commercial has stuck with me since I worked there in high school. Though I can't say it's influenced my writing!
