It’s a funny commercial that Amazon released already in 2021 and that still looks interesting in the eyes of the viewers. The mythological Medusa has an issue: every time people look at her eyes, even unintentionally, they turn to stone. This way her life is destined to be solitary, but she finds a solution. She uses a smartphone to order sunglasses on Amazon, with Amazon Prime service. “One-day delivery”. In this way she can have a social life. And we can see her in a nightclub, with a nice song on the background.
You can find the original commercial here. The commercial ends with Medusa deciding, this time intentionally, to turn to stone a guy who was going to hit on her and her girlfriends.
