This amusing commercial was created to plug a dating advice book called 11 Points Guide to Hooking Up. Having read the book, I can assure you that it’s not only hilarious but also filled with practical advice. The commercial was filmed in Virginia, which is also where the film Lincoln is currently being shot by Steven Spielberg. The director and his crew chose to film it in a central-Virginia restaurant and bar named Shackleford’s. Is this commercial perhaps the greatest one about hooking up ever created? I think so. But you’ll probably never see it on TV. The creators don’t have the budget for that. Nonetheless, I would argue that its certainly as well-made as any commercial you’d find on the living room tube.
