This Commercial Sums Up My Religious Beliefs.
After the first few viewings of this commercial, I had so many questions. What are five questionable looking men doing in the back of a family's RV? Where is the RV going? Why does the man driving decide to strand four of the men in the middle of the desert? What kinda shit is Chad going to try now that he is in the back of the RV alone with that girl?
Then I realized some questions don't have answers; in fact some questions are simply not important. All along, I was asking myself the wrong questions about this Alltel commercial. A commercial does not have to make logical sense for you to believe that it is true; all it needs is one magic ingredient: faith.
Once I accepted into my heart that Chad was destined to be in the back of the RV with the family's pubescent daughter, that the other four men's purpose was to be stranded in the middle of the desert, it was like a huge burden had been lifted off my shoulders. Now I find comfort and safety in the fact that My Circle's unlimited plan is in control, that Chad, It's charismatic messiah and a hair-gel fanatic, will guide me through my struggles and triumphs, and that It's network, even though it is invisible to my eyes, will surround me at all times with the coverage I need.
Now, when I stumble, I have faith that the My Circle and Chad will offer me some kind words about Their unlimited plan, while pushing away the demons and their unsharable unlimited plans. Chad, I love you will all my heart because you died for my sins.
