Waiting for 2010 #57: GE Locomotive Commercial

Here I was, not knowing what to blog about on July the 10th, when a commercial for General Electric's locomotives aired on the NBC network (NBC Universal being a subsidiary of GE):

If you didn't watch the above embedded video, it's supposed to be male GE factory workers singing Berlin's "Take My Breath Away." It's humorous, indeed. It would be even funnier if the backstory was that the parent company GE ordered Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin's 30 Rock character) to turn around the locomotive department with a snappy ad campaign, and somehow this was the best Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) could write. Hilarity would have ensued.

And that's my blog for today. Sad, I know, but not as sad as the current California budget woes (which I should've blogged about).
