Bandits! 11 o'clock!

You can't plan for these.

Somewhere around 11pm, I think I was watching Ice Road Truckers, and they ran this old Sears Optical commercial where this woman in her houseboat is calling her cat back inside for the night. But it's a raccoon that trots in. And this is the longer version, showing the raccoon sprawled on the bed as the woman goes to sleep.

It's a funny little commercial and it's still amusing, even after a couple of years. But...

They ran it just after a commercial for Guardians of the Future, which opens THIS WEEKEND, featuring a snarling Rocket Raccoon.

That makes me smile.
