High 5

There is a commercial for the Queen Latifah movie Last Holiday that bothers me. It's one of those commercials that mixes clips from the movie with footage of people who have just seen the movie. At the end of the commercial they show a bunch of women exiting the theater and two of them look at one another and then high five.

Now, I've been to many, many nerdy movie events that actually were events to the people seeing them. I have never seen anyone high five someone after a film.

Never during a Star Trek movie, Star Wars movie, Serenity or any other event has anyone reached over and high fived a buddy. Not even when Spock came back in Star Trek 3.

Now that I know that this is an acceptable reaction to a movie, I wish that I had high-fived Nancy after Munich.

That we had stood up as the credits started and screamed, "Munich, fuck yeah!" and I shot my arm up as Nancy slipped me some skin.

I wonder if that would make the commercial.
