And I feel terrible that in the first video I was like "That Theresa from Passions!"...and in the third video it was like "Luis from Passions!" Why do I remember these things? Why can't I remember the faces of people I actually meet and need to remember?
Oh man, I loved Passions. I tuned out after the first three or four years though and I recently found myself looking up the various characters on Wikipedia to see what happened to them... wow, Theresa sure had some troubles.
Anyway, this sort of shiitake is terribly awkward, but it's one of the reasons I find soap operas so endlessly amusing. I don't think it's a new thing either, just rather than a character saying "Man, I have cramps, where's the Midol?" they do a little time-out for the product pitch, which is sooooo cringe-worthy. But funny!
