For Kat

By Skylers Dad from Some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps.

By now most of you are aware that Kat from RocketRadio has closed up shop to move on to greener pastures. As the owner and general manager of Fire That Agency she was kind enough to invite me to add my distinctive brand of commercial taste (read insanity) to this little corner of the world.

So I thought to myself, Sky-Dad, (I always refer to myself in third person) why not send her off in a manner most associated with bad advertisements and find a great commercial that shows just what we think of her? Great idea I answered myself, or at least one of the voices in my head mumbled some type of agreement... So off I went to the Internettubes in search of the perfect sendoff.

Well, the Google, she is a fickle bitch. When you want to find something that really hits the spot, you get about 20,000 hits of guys getting clobbered in the junk, or adult material, which is quite often the same thing.

So Kat, the best I could come up with is this spot from Cadillac, which is weak, but please accept it in the spirit in which it was intended. Not that you are a pasty old white dude getting a new job, but that you are moving on to a new place in your life, hopefully better, and bringing the rest of us along.

Fair winds and following seas my friend.

Thank you sooooo much for this, SkyDad!!

I'm very moved by your sweetness. It's the first time a Cadillac commercial made me choke up since Led Zeppelin sold out and let them use "Rock n' Roll" for the Breakthrough campaign.

This makes me wanna write for FTA again. I shall return!!!!

xoxo much love buddy!

Kat is the cool old man in my office full of thrift-store hipsters.

Or something like that.
