Apparently, a black eye is a badge of honor. When I see pictures of people with such an eye, it seems to be accompanied by a smile.
I Googled “black-eye” and found a large set of celebrity pictures complete with eye-of-black.
Robert Downey Jr.
(any surprises thus far?)
And then there’s the Prom Kid star in the Audi A-6 commercial.
A stereo-typical, dateless, shy teenager with a mouthy little sister is given the keys to the his Father’s A-6 .(Definitely not my father’s Oldsmobile) With the roar of an engine and tiger-eyed headlights, the teen’s courage builds enroute to Prom.
And it wasn’t liquid courage. Just the wheels.
We caught a glimpse of things to come when the young pup parked in the Principals parking place.
The teen marched deliberately to his targeted love and proceeded to plant a movie-star kiss upon some big dude’s girlfriend. While we don’t actually see what happened next…
we can only conclude that the principal wanted his parking place !
The teen escapes Prom with a colorfull eye, a kiss to tweet about and really no other memory of his prom.
But his chariot, the A-6, will undoubtedly escort many coming of age young men to their very own, personally engraved, fist-to- the-face.
Now that’s capitalizing upon pent-up demand.
