Afoot and Lighthearted

Last week I was sitting watching something on the t.v., and I saw a commercial for a high-end Volvo. "Hey," says I, "that narration sounds very familiar."

Volvo liked the commercial so much they made an extended version. My students liked it too. Never before have I had such an easy time getting them to like "the bridge guy."

Very cool! But also, Volvo doesn't have to pay royalties to anyone for use of the poem, the cheap bastards.
