The Paint Roller AskMe's shared memory hits 2019 television

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?

Trying to find an old post about a fake commercial

I'm trying to find an old post that appeared on MetaFilter some time back. It was a YouTube link to some kind of fake commercial, though I don't remember at all what it claimed to be selling, just that there was a woman doing the whole testimonial and it went slowly off the rails. Does anyone else remember this? [more inside]

...are the rivers Pepsi Blue?

Village, village, village, village, village... buy a village. Done. I'm sure that this post is both good quality and made in good faith. I am however wondering where we stand on Pepsi Blue stuff these days, even that it's extolling a Rio Grande commercial card set and video game. [more inside]
