Sorry if I'm treading on the toes of the usual FF poster(s). Just came here to unburden after the latest Brexit extravaganza of selfishness and rank stupidity and found the previous one had become dormant. If this is good, then have at it... I am UP TO HERE WITH EVERYTHING. Blessings on you all.

So you remember the askme from 5 years ago where we all tried to figure out what 80's tv show/intro had a character stepping through a door and getting slathered with paint as they did? Well, this recent 1980's themed Progressive insurance commercial has been airing during the current NCAA tournament, and at 18 seconds in, guess what happens. A character opens a door and gets a paint roller across their chest. This doesn't resolve the question, but perhaps the answer is out there, somewhere. We can't all be making this up, right?
Today is my 14th anniversary of ponying up $5. Since then, I've moved to my fourth continent. Thank you for the longest running stable relationship I've had since 2005, Metafilter.
