Although I haven’t had cable or basic TV channels of any kind for well over two decades, I still remember clear as a bell Wilford Brimley’s Liberty Medical commercial where he spoke about his diabetes. They were a cultural phenomenon, ushering in the new pronunciation “diabeetus” and propelling Brimley back into the spotlight.
Getting to the point, Anna Continelli, who is a goddamn genius in my world, mashed the audio of the Liberty Medical commercial with scenes from John Carpenter’s sci-fi horror classic The Thing. The end result is a fantastic and humorous commercial that was meant to promote a showing of the film at The Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, Massachusetts. Check it out below and enjoy the brilliance!
