I first saw this ad for movietickets.com with 3:10 To Yuma a few years back. You may have seen it. He’s trying to impress his date by running and buying the tickets for their movie while they’re still at dinner. The show’s sold out, but it turns out she’s already bought the tickets online. Amazingly, they’ve got the video clip online…

I haven’t been quite sure what to do with it, since I’m not ready to start in on listing every parody of the Flash to ever appear in media.

Hmm, now that I think about it, the Blur in that Baby Ruth commercial back in the 90s was blue, too.

    I don’t think this is quite what that Guardian guy meant when he told Blue Lantern Barry to go out and spread the message.

    (Which brings up a point…the heroes could have just sent out text messages.)

      I remember Wally once wrote and personally delivered a letter to Jay because it was faster than picking up the phone and dialing.
