Reader's Diary #2284- Dave Housley: Super Bowl (2013)

In "Super Bowl (2013)" Dave Housley riffs on Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead but rather than using Hamlet as the backdrop, he instead uses commercials from the 2013 Super Bowl. It's also written as a short story rather than a play. 

Like the Tom Stoppard play, it's very amusing but also way more relatable. If you've ever watched a bunch of over the top commercials in a row and found yourself what the hell is going on—in the commercials themselves or in the world at large— you'd get Rosencrantz and Guilderstern's confusion. 

Very fun premise.
