Last Monday I had the best day ever because of a Utilikilts mock-u-mercial that just made my day. Seriously, it was the greatest thing I’ve seen in a long time, and I’m sure that just from me sharing it with friends, family and co-workers this past week Utilikilts must have received a surge of hits to their web site. I blogged about it to share my amusement with the world, and less than two days later I approved a comment from CJ who wrote, “We here at Utilikilts actually have a Scotsman as our shipping dude. He’s also single. Just sayin’…”
A quick search on the Utilikilts web site revealed that CJ is their Press Contact as well as the Editor of their newsletter… Which means this man needs a bonus because he is doing his job! Seriously! I mean, he must log on every day and do a Google search for Utilikilts just to see what type and kinds of publicity/noise his company is drumming up…
But more importantly – and what qualifies him for a free pint on the company… Utilikilts, are you listening??!? – CJ didn’t just put a check mark on a spreadsheet when he found my blog entry (Virtually unknown blogger linked to Utilikilts? Check.), he took the time to pimp out his co-worker.
His check sheet must look something like this: Web site hits up from last week? Check. Bloggers linking to Utilikilts? Check. Mock-u-mercials a success for advertising? Check. Pimping out co-worker on basis of job and accent? Check.
Granted, CJ didn’t give us a name, a photo, a MySpace URL or a Match.com code… but something tells me that if you’re a single lass with a penchant for a Scottish brogue, CJ can hook you up!
Who are we kidding?! What woman doesn’t get a little weak in the knees and stiff in the nipples when she hears the deep, low rumble of a Scottish (or Irish) accent? Yummy. Having a great accent (not a crap accent, like French or Spanglish) definitely makes a man sexier by at least 22%. Bonus points for weilding the voice of a highland (or celtic) god with with a pair of great jeans and a five o’clock shadow.
It’s true! Having an accent keeps Sean Connery on The List kept by many women… You know what I’m talking about! The List of 5 (or 10, if you are particularly slutty) guys you can sleep with that don’t count against your relationship? Only on mine, I’ve amended the Sean Connery entry to phone sex only. At some point, age does become a negative factor!
So ladies… Pimp CJ is out there to remind us that there are Scotsmen living and breathing in the U.S. (well, at least one!) and we don’t have to buy mediocre romantic comedies like P.S. I Love You in order to experience the brogue stateside. Perhaps if you buy your brother a Utilikilt and pair the order with a particularly enticing essay (“What a Scotsman could do for me!“), CJ will up the ante and let the Scotsman deliver the package.
Now how’s that for a double entendre?!
