Looking for a last-second gift? Sure you are. And there's no better place than the bevy of TV ads that hit the airwaves just before Christmas. They always offer special holiday deals, no matter the product.
But what makes them special, the local ones anyhow, is how bad they are. Low-res, bad performance, performance art has been trying for decades to imitate what comes naturally to local commercials.
And that is true even in other countries.
Witness this sexy lo-fi Guatemalan commercial for—that's right—a funeral home. If there's a stranger image than a Santa-nymph smiling and giving a thumbs-up from a coffin, we don't know about it.
