    i Spy: Hammocks in the Media

    So I had a thought. I frequent a moped website and they have a thread about spotting mopeds in movies, tv etc...so why not with us? maybe a little more obscure, but I'm sure some of you out there may have seen something.

    I thought of this the other night after seeing the new Abilify commercial, and towards the end they get into what looks like a typical gathered end hammock (altho its strung a little snug...)


    Lets open this up to hammocks in the news as well, like print etc.

    So heres the commercial, skip to about 1:00 if you dont want to see the whole (depressing, how ironic) add.

    Saw that last week. Good Idea, will try to keep my eyes open for more.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.

    Going Mainstream

    Even Barbie is getting in on the hammock camping. She does not believe in ultra-light it would appear.

    In the new Muppets movie hammocks make a couple of appearances.

    MASH re-run

    Watching a re-run of MASH last night. Frank Burns was in a hammock strung over top of Hawkeye and BJ. It was a canvas hammock with several ropes at the end going to a metal ring.
