I always get a small frisson of surprise when I click on the Twitter favicon and the screen above comes up.

Dark mode makes it even better.

But I digress.

Surprise is a pretty much lost element of internet life c. 2021: whereas once upon a time clicking on a link was akin to taking a piece from Forrest Gump's box of chocolates, nowadays you pretty much know what you're gonna get.

That's why I really, really like Tom Brady's new Subway commercial: it's disorienting from the get-go.

I had no idea what was going on the first time I saw it, and even after repeated viewings it still amuses me.


You haven't seen it?

You need to watch more football.

But I digress again.

Without further ado, here it is.

The punch line is fo shizzle.
