    Cool Discovery Channel Commercial

    I love this commercial, but I warn you, if you watch it more than once the song will be stuck in your head the rest of the day.

    Thanks for that!

    Cool sort of on topic sidenote. My six year old loves Discovery Channel, Science Channel, History Channel, etc.

    We watch 30 minutes of TV together prior to reading a book and going to bed. He gets to choose the channel, within reason. The three channels above are big players. Right now, we are watching Junkyard Wars on a pretty regular basis.

    No more Discovery Channel watching in this house. Not since they abandoned Pro cycling.

    Maybe they just could not afford the EPO bills. That stuff is expensive.

    No - there was no collapse of a team when they stepped out.

    The Earth rocks!

    Dang it I was supposed to be in the commercial, but I got left on the cutting room floor! Here's a screen cap from the clip!

    Did anyone else get "edited out" of the commercial?
