Cooper - Obnoxious coworker
of a young female executive seen in 2001 on TV ads for the travel service
Expedia.com. As the commercial starts, a young brunette executive accesses the
Internet to reserve a flight for an upcoming business trip. Another female
worker (Rachael Harris) passes by her desk and asks with whom she will be
traveling. "Cooper," the brunette replies. The curious coworker rolls her eyes
in a taunting gesture and yelps "Cooper?....HA!"
Suddenly, the brunette imagines
what the flight will be like with Cooper (Terry Rhoads), the office cad.
We see scenes of him asking intrusive questions ("How much money do you
make?"), sitting close, squirting breath spray into his mouth and generally
acting obnoxious flash across her mind.
Enlightened, the woman goes back to her Expedia.com site and chooses a shorter flight so she can cut down on the time
she has to spend with Cooper (who wears snake skin shoes, open-collar shirts,
gold jewelry and a really phony smile).
The message of the commercial touts Expedia's ability to offer easy access to their services and a variety of flight
times and options - at the click of a computer mouse.
