Commercial Worthy: Things You Can't Do When You're Not in a Pool

Things You Can't Do When You're Not in a Pool

The brilliance of this video is in the acting. Titled "Things You Can't Do When You're Not in a Pool," the video shows a young man who pretends that he's in the water while he "dunks" a friend, does a canonball off a curb, rests with his arms on the side of the "pool" and has a tea party with a friend.

What's wonderful is that he doesn't over-act. Instead, he simply moves in the slow and somehow soothing way that people move when in swimming pools. We suddenly see just how silly we look when we're swimming, and the result is hilarious.

I can see it as an ad for Nestea or other summertime drink. Most of the ad could focus on the actor, Tyler Stanton (a member of Don'tBeThatGuy Films) doing all the above-mentioned and unsuccessful things you can't do when you're not in a pool. Then the ad would switch to "Things You Can Do When You're Not in a Pool," and would show him at a table, under an umbrella, drinking iced tea. The tagline could be: Nestea. Enjoy Anytime.
