Opulence, I has It

This has got to be one of my favorite commercials of all time. I don't know what I like more, the opening line, (see title), "I jump in It" or the miniature giraffe. Nuff said.

Clearly the man is able to make choices.  My father always said he worked to provide us with choice. To me this remains as one of the most altruistic and succint statements regarding work, family and purpose. Oddly enough it is an old german saying that "where there is choice, there is torment". An enlightened statement to be sure, but it was Edgar Guest who said:

"You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside;
you are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind. Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are."

Perhaps the saying should be:
"Mit der Wahl, kommt Qual. Ohne Verantwortung, mehr". 
Reduce your torment. Seek not the miniature giraffe.
