half the people in minnesota are comedians. :D
i especially liked the comments about flying cars and dumb boys.

lol...It's very inventive. I liked how they went from semi-serious to completely off-the-wall.

Man, I want a flying car.

Thanks for this. I think it is interesting how many of the comments on the MNSpeak blog around this ad are kind of negative. it is an experiment and can be both a fun and possibly serious device. i mean let's not take ourselves too seriously or not be too paranoid about playing with the internet.

i love it and think it adds another layer to a blog.
i could be wrong, but i feel a lot of blogging writers would use it.

I think this could be very good. Blogger has a service that allows the owner of the Blog to do his post via telephone and the player is embedded in the post.

The only problem I see with all of this is that people are usually a little more articulate in print -- they have a chance to think about what they're going to say and can correct it, if necessary.

The audio comments sometimes come across as, well, a little lame.

I like the potential, though.

I think it has good potential, depending on how it is used.
