    Default Uke sighting thread, post here.

    Got an idea tonight while watching a show on tv when a new commercial for Cinnamon Toast Crunch came on. The instrument playing the music in the background was......guess what???? A UKULELE!!

    I think it would be a hoot if UUers would post 'UKE SITINGS' in the press. Although I suppose any media would be fair game, but I think TV might be best because most ads are national and we all might have a chance of seeing them, whereas radio and print are definitely local (then again that would be great for all the locals!!).

    If you see/hear a ukulele in the media post the specifics here so we all can catch it.

    ...just an idea
    ...I mean, how many ukuleles does one man need?
