Hotels.com TV Commercial, 'Captain Obvious Runs for President: The Road'
As a man jogs down a deserted road wearing a red service cap and jacket with medals, red tube socks, and shorts, as he explains that he is "running" in the race for presidency. In a place called Nothing, Arizona, the man indicates that he will run against anyone, including: donkeys, elephants and orangutans. Although he claims his support has been great, his sole supporter was actually a hitchhiker who was signaling for a ride. The hitchhiker calls the man "Captain Obvious" as he misinterprets the thumbs-up gesture as support. With Hotels.com, booking a room is simple, more so if he weren't running -- almost as simple as getting lost, which he is pretty sure he is in fact lost.
