Funny Indian Commercials

In class last week I showed some film clips of poems being read in various movies.  Gretchen, who sat right next to the audio video cart, said she'd just done a speech and had a couple she wanted to show as well.  Since class hadn't started yet, I gave her free reign of the computer, and she came up with these two.

Why Indian commercials? Because I was showing the similarities between Beyonce's latest hit "Single Ladies" and the Indian music I'd heard at an Indian wedding. We were discussing meter and rhyme and I thought I'd catch their attention with the idea of rhythm in songs.
