When I was in Nairobi in 2013 I spent in inordinate amount of time watching television with my hosts. That might sound like a terrible way to spend your time in a another country, particularly one as interesting as Kenya.. and, well, it kind of is if that's all you do. But watching TV in other countries is surprisingly interesting! You get a taste of the culture and local happenings through the local news and talk shows, and the commercials can be hilarious and entertaining from an outside perspective.

Speaking of the latter, this was hands-down my favorite commercial:

It's actually from South Africa, as I understand it, but it doesn't matter. Some people will remember Kenya for safaris and matatus and Maasai. Me? I'll remember it for catchy detergent commercials.
