Friday fun at the Reference Desk...
Posted by: Admin

Discover Card runs some pretty funny commercials featuring "Peggy", a customer service rep who is actually a man based in a snowy shack somewhere in the middle of Siberia.

Our own Dave Tyckoson has come up with a spoof of these commercials:  "Reference as Peggy Would Do It".   Fun stuff!

Even better is his spoof of Cialis: "When the Time is Right, Will you be Ready to Read E-books?".  ("Do not drink alcohol to excess while reading e-books, as many plots  and characters are confusing enough while sober.")

One Response to “Friday fun at the Reference Desk...”
  1. Dave Tyckoson Says:

    No actual library books were harmed in the filming of these commercials.
