All this reading, reading, reading. Sometimes you just want to kick back and let your audio-visual
receptor focus on some moving images, right? That's what my stack of Simpsons DVDs is all about but if you're ready for a quick 30 seconds about the 2008 Mercury Mariner hybrid, Ford's got a commercial for you.

The new ad, called "Tree" (you'll see why when you watch), was produced by Tight Films and the directors are The Brothers Strause, whose work can be seen in movies like "300," "X-Men: The Last Stand," and "Titanic." Programmers at the Brothere Strause's effects company, Hydraulx, even wrote new particle and fluid movement computer code for this commercial.

      That's a pretty good ad, actually. Plus it has Jill Wagner which just makes me smile anyways.
