Whenever my family goes on vacation, part of the time is always spent watching “Dirty Job” marathons. At our house we do not have cable, so the Discovery channel is an instant treat for all of us. My three boys and I can’t get enough of Mike Rowe and his gang. Dirty Jobs is one of the best reality shows I have seen, it is simply testosterone in action. It deals with “real life” job scenarios that most of us could never imagine doing, with a touch of, “I am so glad that’s not my job.”
The other day as I was channel surfing the four network stations we get at home, a commercial for Ford comes on. It’s a very simple commercial. Mike Rowe, wearing jeans, a V-neck cashmere sweater, expensive leather shoes and a baseball cap, walks down a “row” of every type of Ford vehicle. All he talks about is the fact that now is a great time to buy a Ford. He stops at the end of the row and slaps his hand down on the Mustang and the commercial ends.
