When Marie Rebelle invites you to participate in the 400th Wicked Wednesday so she can reach her goal of at least 50 links, you can’t turn her down. So even though I haven’t had much inspiration lately I decided to write about one of my recent obsessions.
This commercial. I can’t get it out of my head. It’s gorgeous and stylish and the song is one that has always made me go into a trance.
This is not a comment on popular classic songs selling out for commercials. I have no desire to be on a cruise.
But I fantasize about wearing that green and blue dress with “White Rabbit” playing in the background. I’ve always had a thing for different interpretations of Alice and Wonderland.
And what gets me at the very end, when the woman opens her eyes after her poolside nap and sees the female captain of the ship leaning over her, welcoming her aboard, I always think, “They’ve been fantasizing about banging each other, I just know it.” They caught each other’s eyes while boarding and have been thinking about the other nonstop. I imagine later that night they’ll meet again at the bar or the nightclub (or wherever people go to entertain themselves on cruise ships) and end up in private quarters, living out a different fantasy while the crescendo of the song rolls over them again.
