By the way those are Stance brand socks in the ad, according to this AdWeek article – “There’s a Story Behind Christopher Walken’s Fancy Sock in the Kia Commercial – Red-hot brand Stance, like the automaker, has ties to the NBA”

It begins with “Stamp collectors and those fascinated with the romance of the Pony Express will have a chance to combine both interests this month….The 38th annual ride of the Hashknife Pony Express Riders will take off from the Holbrook Ariz., Post Office on Jan. 26. This year, the riders are carrying the Super Bowl XXX game toss coin and the official football…”
There is still time to get your Valentine’s Day card(s) into the mail tomorrow allowing time for them to get there by Saturday’s mail – next Sunday is Valentine’s Day.
Wishing us all a warmer week ahead!
