Listen. We’re as happy as any comedy fan that Ricky Gervais is hosting the Golden Globes– if for no other reason than it’s nice to see great comedians getting high-profile, high paying gigs.
But really, Golden Globes peeps: this ad is completely absurd. And we’re pretty sure you didn’t mean it to be absurd. We think you’re earnestly trying to get the mainstream audience hyped up for an event that will never, ever not be mostly lame– unless, of course, you’re planning on giving Ricky an uncensored hour of stand-up time.
