Yeah, especially when you could just use said rope to hang the other person! ;)

It's certainly the most entertaining way . . .

Using a satellite image I added some graphics to show where the family is sitting, where the Alltel guy and kid are as they walk/talk, and the direction the camera is pointing during the scenes of the family on the "grassy knoll.". If anyone would like to host this and reply with a link that would be cool (I don't have a website).

Who has a website? Gonch? :)

EDIT - and here's another link to an aerial shot that might be useful for you guys trying to sort this out.

I think the commercial would have been funnier if somebody on the ride just heaved on the kids.

Great...but since you have your markers out, where can I find the airtime? (small inside joke)... ;)

Somewhere, somebody has a Super-8 film of the area in question...

Tempest in a teapot. It's cute, interesting, and it furthers the story arc of the New Chad. Nobody else beside we enthusiasses is even going to pay it (low zone violations in a commercial) a moment's thought.

Right and too bad that they are the same company now....

If anyone has a picture of that particular spot by the coaster, please post it.


Just gone and where you are.

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks Jeff's doing this just to make the case for him.
