Off all the places I thought I’d see Mike Myers again, I can honestly say that I didn’t think it would be in a Sears commercial. And if I’m being completely honest, I didn’t think I’d ever see another Sears commercial.
Watch it and then let’s discuss.
Some people are reacting negatively to the commercial, but I’m not too sure it’s as offensive as some people are saying. I think it’s better to acknowledge Sears’ troubles than completely ignore it. I mean really, when was the last time you were in a Sears?
I think this was the last time I was there:
I just bought something at Sears. I’m basically a national hero.

That’s right. I’ve been there so few times, I can literally remember the last time I was there. Oh, Christmas Eve shopping, never leave me.
Plus, I think it’s fun to point out that Myers’ brother has worked at years for most of his adult life. Why not use the family connection. And if all of this leads to another Austin Powers movie somehow being made, isn’t that what life is all about anyway? Also, how great does Mike look? I’m talking about Mike Myers. Not me. Although, if you wanted to randomly compliment in the comments, why would I mind?
