Washington, DC

But I thought for sure I was hallucinating on the metro this afternoon. So check it out, on the red line metro between Metro Center and Gallery Place the most bizarre thing happened. I was staring out the window to take in the views, all right there are no views, I was staring at the window to see if I was balding, anyway, that is not important…what is important is that as I was staring out the window, I saw a freaking television commercial. It was the weirdest thing. I know we’ve all seen some of the trains with advertisements but this was an actual video commerical of a television program. It was something like “Day Break” staring Taye Diggs. But that’s not important, what is important is that the masters of metro or at the very least their IT guys have figured out how to broadcast commercials in metro tunnels! Obviously there is no sound but the images pass you by as you look out the window. I really thought I was losing my mind. Has anyone else seen this? I wonder how much they got paid for it. Well, if it keeps our fares low, I’m all for it. Of course, it is possible that I had way too much fun in college…
