So, there’s this tv commercial for a show coming up called something like “Celebrity Skating”. That’s not the title, I know, but I don’t care what the title is, because I won’t be watching it.
I’m guessing it’s trying to cash in on last year’s celebrity ballroom dancing craze. I’m assuming it was a craze, because it said so in magazines. I didn’t watch any of it, yet I somehow know that Mr. Peterman won. Or didn’t win, but then was allowed to try and win again?
Anyway, back to the celebrity skaters. In this show, it says, 6 celebrities will try to learn how to figure skate, being taught by famous skaters. As this is said, in the ad, they show the faces of six people. I have no idea who any of the six people are. I honestly don’t know if they are the 6 celebrities or the famous skaters. I assume that they are the celebrities. But I seriously have no idea who they are. And you know me, I’m pretty pop savvy.
Which begs the question: Should someone who is unidentifiable be labelled a “celebrity”? Doesn’t that just invalidate the value of, you know, real celebrities?
How will I sleep tonight?
