GE Recycles Water, Woody Allen Humor


Last night, during the season finale of The Office, GE debuted this comely advertisement trumpeting the corporation's water-recycling program (or something). In it, a team of miniaturized, white-suited laborers in assembly-line formation works together to fill a tank with liquid, which, at commercial's climax, rains down from the heavens. Where have we seen something exactly like this before? Oh, right! In the far-less-graphic "What happens during ejaculation?" scene in Woody Allen's Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (the one where Woody plays a sperm). We remember enough from ninth-grade earth science to know that this is not really where precipitation comes from, but, needless to say, we'll definitely be packing an umbrella today. See Woody's original money shot, after the jump!
