America, Please Welcome The Blisters

I haven’t been this interested in a television ad since Robert Conrad was daring us to knock a battery off his shoulder.

Danny Miller is stoked about his nephews’ new commercial for Quaker Oats, which is certainly understandable. After all, it was directed by Errol Morris. And the spot serves as the television debut for The Blisters, Sam and Spencer Tweedy’s band. Jeff Tweedy of Wilco is their dad. so these kids could blow up like Hanson.
Thanks to Adfreak for the pointer.
