Ram-Tough Vikings…

I like surreal and anachronistic humor, so commercials featuring the History Channel’s “Vikings” hawking Dodge Ram trucks are right up my alley.  In one commercial spot airing during the “Vikings” series, the burly warriors are hauling one of their longboats with a truck, the topper being that they are singing a variation of “The Wheels On The Bus” kiddie song classic lustily at the top of their lungs as they do so.  

Complete with their weapons and authentic period clothing, we are treated to several spirited choruses of the kid favorite by the Vikings, who probably would have been even more vexing to the Saxons on their raids of England had they driven pickup trucks onto the battlefields…

    According to Shakespeare’s famous “Scottish play” (in case there any superstitious Shakespearians reading this), the 11th century Scots repelled a Viking invasion using anachronistic cannons!
