Ellen Page For Cisco in "The Doctor Is In" Commercial

Ellen Page pops into a Doctor's office and explains to the receptionist that she's in town for a few days and would like to see the Doctor. "He's in Copenhagen" says the woman. "But you can still see him." They move into the next room and there's the Doctor on a wide screen TV sitting in an office, supposedly in Copenhagen. "He's a workaholic" says the receptionist as the female V/O says "See it. Live it. Share it. On The Human Network. Cisco Systems."

 I had to see this spot twice before I realized the Doctor is on vacation in Copenhagen but still able to see patients over "The Human Network." That's the point. Not that Ellen Page just pops in to her Doctor's office for a "visit" while she's in town for a few days. How is he supposed to help her anyway? Does she take her clothes off and move close to the camera for an examination? What can a Doctor do for a patient over a flat screen LCD Jumbotron? Ellen Page was adorable though. I think that's the real point. I'll keep Skype. It's a lot less expensive.
