I had a nerdgasm when I saw this commercial...anyone else?

Updated on November 30, 2012

I'm not really sure how long it's been on the air, but I saw it for the first time a couple of days ago and I had a boi oi oing moment.

I thought it was a really cool concept and it brought back a lot of good ol' nerdy memories...oh to be a child of the 80's. Well technically I was a child of the 70's...being born in '76 and all...but honestly all I remember about the 70's was sitting in a diaper and not having to get up to use the bathroom...and I can't wait until I can do that again when I'm old and gray. Imagine on a cold winter's night not having to get up from the TV during your favorite show or while you're playing you favorite video game...good times.

I almost squealed like a young girl at a Justin Bieber concert...but it was late and I didn't want to wake everyone up so I just stayed cool.

I must admit though, that after the commercial I ran into the bathroom and rubbed one out to the latest issue of Wired magazine.

It is cool to see that Johnny 5 is very much alive and well...I am sad though that there was no Robocop...or at least ED-209.


Anyone else enjoy this commercial?

      @fpherj48 first off...yes, you should thank me...that commercial was awesome...such great memories. The only books I read are the phone book (when I'm looking for a number), or the books with those popup pictures in them...the kick donkey.

      I had not seen this commercial......should I thank you? I'm so far behind the times.....from the dark ages, honey...believe me. In my day "nerds" were called "book worms." ......which was just as stupid as most of the things we said and did. I know this see, I was (am) a Book worm, but not a the literal present-day definition.

      Soon as I get caught up...I'll be one of those in diapers. What an awful thought!.........UP++
