The Most Randomly Cool Thing About That Prius Super Bowl Commercial ...

How many people watching last night’s Super Bowl were slightly tipsy, watching the Prius ad with half an eye open, and said out loud, “Hey! That bank robber is Pornstache! Oh, wait? Is that Ziggy from The Wire? Pornstache played Ziggy’s brother in the second season of The Wire! Holy crap, guys! Look, look, look! And that’s Frank Sobotka! Oh my God, they got the Sobotka family to be in this commercial!

How many of the rest of you then spent the next 20 seconds trying to figure out who that other guy was, until someone texted you (in my case, Seth) asking the very same thing? Yeah, I recognize him, but I have no idea from what, either. No clue. I’m sure The Wire creator David Simon was just as confused as the rest of us.

How seriously random was that?
