Commercial for Celebrity Cruises

Has anyone seen this commercial?  They play it frequently, at least in our area (Atlanta). 

In the commercial, they use part of the song, White Rabbit, by Jefferson Airplane. 

I think it's a really interesting, weird to be honest, choice for a song for a cruise line. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Yes, Ive thought that song odd to advertise a cruiseline. What does it mean? Being on a cruise is like an acid trip? You're down the rabbit hole when you're on a cruise? I dont get it either.

Maybe "feed your head" means different things to different people, but I think it is rather clever.

PM Okay, explain this commercial to me from Celebrity Cruise Lines.

They use the song "Go Ask Alice" by Jefferson Airplane. Are they saying that by going on a trip with them, that you'll go on a trip?

Yes, that commercial had my husband and I wondering whether they had a clue as to what that song was about.

Maybe there's some sort of Timothy Leary memorial cruise coming up.

Yes, I noticed that commercial and commercials rarely catch my interest.

 

I thought it meant "you'll feel like you're Alice in Wonderland", all magical and stuff.  

 

I agree, weird.

It's for the old folks who cruise.

I could see it for a Carnival 3 daybooze cruise but Celebrity is supposed to be classy. So yes it is odd.

Wrong is still wrong just because you benefited from it.
