I'm sorta kinda half watching the Olympics Opening Ceremony,
all of a sudden,
wha ... is drawing my attention?
It's Brandi Carlile singing her biggest hit: "The Story", on a GM commercial!
Way to go Brandi and twins! Way to make some money! You've come a ways, hopefully, from this 2007 appearance on an obscure Spanish language daytime show - video of which I enjoy more than it deserves. From Brandi and the twins being night people who obviously are half awake - at best, to the low production values of the set and the camera work, to the apparent 15 people in the audience, to Brandi not knowing her own MySpace web address: it's the tiny things in life, and in videos (such as the green carpeting), which I enjoy.
PS: I'm happy to report I have suburban friends - of approx. my age, parents of two, youth sports coaches - who saw Brandi in concert and said she was very good. The wife now listens to a Brandi CD when she drives kids around town. Cool.
