Bethany has broken down Proposition A for you. Me personally, I’m for it. But this ad makes me laugh. Check out this couple as they are having an intimate meal together, discussing private matters—and then suddenly an eavesdropping Ron Kirk is at the next table rudely interrupting to deliver a mood-killing disquisition on hotel taxes.

His mouth is still skeptical about who is going to pay for this deal, but his eyebrows are totally being won over by Ron Kirk. This is an inspired acting performance. Four and a half stars.

One more thing: we can’t figure out which restaurant this is. Hit us in the comments.
