business news in context, analysis with attitude

Speaking of the future…

I was watching “Saturday Night Live” last weekend, starting with the cold open that satirized the Michael Cohen hearings and then guest host John Mulvaney’s excellent monologue. (Mulvaney, who used to write for the show, seems to make it funnier. I’ve turned into a big fan.)

Then, after the monologue, came a commercial that showed an autonomous FedEx robot making a delivery.

Now, I must admit that I was a little confused. Often, that space is used for a “fake ad” produced by SNL … and so, as I watched the FedEx piece, I kept waiting for the joke.

Which never came. It was a real commercial, showing us a future that isn’t that far away, and very effectively.

It is posted here … and I think an Eye-Opener.
