Cultural Shocker! County Fair Comes to LA! OMG!


Beginning tomorrow, Los Angeles will bathe in a cultural oddity known as the LA County Fair. Normally reserved for upstate New York or any flyover state, county fairs are full of cotton candy, barf-inducing tea cup rides, tractor pulls, all form of pig - both cooked and live, trucker hats, beer guts, "git r done" accents no one can understand and lots of girls who think they look hot with their gut bulging between their belly shirt and their way-too-tight low rider jeans. In bringing this sort of event to the most plastic place on earth, some serious motivation was needed.

Stepping up to the daunting task and delivering hilariously was LA agency Ideaology which created these two spots featuring a plactic surgeried mom, her Ashley Simpson look-a-like daughter (named Ashley, no less) and a friend. In one spot, the three debate whether or not cotton candy is vegan. In the other, a discussion ensues regarding exactly what sound a sheep makes.

Last month I had the opportunity to attend a County Fair, where I witnessed my first tractor pull. Riveting.

Throughout the fairgounds of a Midwest state, I was amazed to find so many women trying to look like they were from Los Angeles. And I was certain that the local Wal-Mart had been cleaned out of Crest White Strips.

So are you a redneck or a hillbilly if you have attended a county fair?

There's another one to the series. You can find it here.

Of course, the white strips were sold out. You don't thing you are going to move ahead to the state fair with that lop eared holland unless the bunny winks and smiles at the judges with a little sparkle on those teeth.

C'mon, yea, like no one ever fudged on their 4-H projects.

Actually, in case you didn't notice the age change in those girls, the spot posted in a comment from Google Video was from last year's Fair campaign.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, I suppose.
