Something Wicked This Way Comes...Every Afternoon At 3 PM
Much like there are only two types of General Hospital plots (Mob and Not-Mob, But Features Mob in a Supporting Role), there are usually two types of General Hospital promos. The first is the promo that features outdated footage of happy couples with a romantic, upbeat song playing in the background. This is their way of saying, "Love in the afternoon? We do that, kind of!" The second is the promo that explicitly spells out the upcoming month's plots in detail done, perhaps, as a favor to the audience to spoil plot twists and save us from tuning in, maybe?
So I applaud their creativity in doing something different with their latest "Something Wicked This Way Comes" teaser. I just don't know if this...wait, let me try again. This seems to be...no, that didn't work either.
I'm sorry, I'm trying to think of a diplomatic way to say, "What the fuuuuuuck?" but I'm failing. I just think that's the only reaction to have to a commercial that includes a ghoulish Helena voiceover AND a carousel horse crying blood. If anything, I think I actually could have added a few more u's to really convey the bizarreness of it all.
AND A CLOWN! I am reasonably sure that the clown closeup is even more terrifying than most of the current GH storylines (I say "most" because I'm starting to believe that Sonny and Claudia's relationship is at least as scary as clowns are).
