    Caught this the other day and thought it was awesome. I love it when commercials take a creative bounce to selling us things 🙂

    As to the kraken itself, I am probably the minority. Most everyone equates it with a giant squid–probably because of size and tentacles. However, many of of the early accounts of the kraken talk of it being like a floating island (even up to a mile across–okay that might be a sea tale–who knows). There is even one account (I think I’ve read it multiple times or the story has gotten around to more than one place) where sailors set foot on said island, started a fire only to have the island start to rumble and scramble back to their ship, only then realizing they had been on a living creature.

    The squid doesn’t hold up on that count. Squids are invertebrates, not round at all, and I seriously doubt any sailor would mistake a squid floating on the surface as an island.

    No, it makes me wonder if there isn’t something else altogether different lurking down there. Don’t ask me–some ancient critter that lies on the bottom or blends in with the bottom that occasionally comes to the surface and is a massive thing flat or uneven like an island (giant giant sting ray type of thing???).

    I have no idea, I’ve just never bought the giant squid=kraken theory. Of course, until I get the heck out of my land locked state and do some intensive research in the ocean depths, I can only use my imagination to come up with possibilities…
