Jesus, Baldwin. The Earnest Shill Freaks Me Out

Having lived in Ithaca, NY for three years, the only good thing I can say about the city -- unless you like the smell of hippies or enjoy watching middle-aged women belly dance in the downtown shopping area -- was that it had a Wegman's, the greatest grocery story in all the land. It was like a grocery store mecca. And as as far as grocery store dining went, it was infinitely superior to Whole Foods.

But it was still a grocery store, and Alec Baldwin -- who has a history of playing awesomely wealthy jackasses -- is the last person you'd expect to see in a commercial for the supermarket. Weirder still, he does it without a trace of irony. It is freakishly jarring.
