I just saw this on TV and nearly gagged. I don't even get motion sickness and this just about did me in.

uh, really?  I thought it was a relatively standard ad.  Nothing too special.  The "plane safety" manual-type pictures were a nice touch.
I'm sick of following my dreams.  I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later...

Except for the plane bobbing up and down over and over until I barf. That, particularly, is not normal for a commercial.

Well, whatever you do, don't play the game!  You'll puke your guts out.

It's a lame commercial, but it takes a lot more to make me gag honestly. I mean I've been on acrobatic flights before (you know, doing loopings and such) and I wasn't nauseated then, so...
