Movie References In Commercials: Keep Those Ears Open

I saw a Mastercard commercial tonight that features a young man awkardly calling a girl he had just met and leaving a message on her answering machine...only to call a few more times when he gets cut off by said answering machine. Sound familiar? If it does, than you'll know what I mean when I say that you and me and the bottle makes three tonight. If it doesn't, then you probably weren't between the ages of 16 and 30 when Doug Liman's Swingers injected itself into the pop-culture pantheon ten years ago. For further proof, the young man in the commercial's name is Mike and the girl he's calling is named Nikki; the same names of characters involved in the same situation in the film.

If you see this or any other similar homage, throw a shout out; they are out there.
