to-day is what?

I finally appreciate the joke. There is a great commercial (you must know that so many are reasons never to watch television) where a happy camel wanders a joyless business cubicle plantation asking people the question of the day. The advertising campaign had another really great one about a witch in a broom factory. A point to consider, these parts are pure comedy entertainment; they really say nothing about the advertising client.
"We thought so"

“Uh oh, guess what day it is. Guess what day it is. Huh? Anybody? Julie, hey, guess what day it is. Aw c’mon I know you can hear me. Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike, what day is it Mike? Wuuhahaha. Leslie, guess what today is.” 
We at the ‘voice from the rustbelt’ ought not, can not, should not, and probably will not promote products. Remember:
Advertising is a racket, like the movies and the brokerage business. You cannot be honest without admitting that its constructive contribution to humanity is exactly minus zero.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald
