Netflix radio commercials are funny

Netflix has been busy with the radio ads to try to remain competitive with Blockbuster. So in their current ad campaign they have people in a Jeopardy-like game show answering these really profound questions. The one question I love most is:

Q: A dog goes ahead in time and bites his tail. When does he feel it?

A: Yesterday.

WTF???!!1 LOL

I don't get the point of the commercials. They give stupid answers to stupid questions, and then the third question and answer are about Netflix. Are they saying that Netflix is ridiculous? I understand they are going for humor, but humor has logic involved. You don't show a guy slipping on a tiny elephant and expect it to be funny just because it's illogical. If these advertising people were really talented they'd be writing for film or television. Radio advertising is the bottom of the barrell.

These are called non-sequiturs. They are part of a genre of writing called absurdism.
