Thanks, Flick. That's a good reply.
Maybe it somehow explains why I want to purchase so many potato chips!

I, for one, think that there is much more to "jump cut" than not cutting
to black! ANY two images? Really??
Hey, it's not high art - it's advertising.
Name two images which couldn't be cut together with a quick flash of black
in between? Especially in ideological montage?
The black makes an automatic jump cut - anything to black, without a fade.
It's so extreme, it automatically "works" in the classical continuity
sense because it's not confusing or disorienting - it's simply an
elimination of the previous image.
Then a new image appears, and this cut works too for the same reasons.
So it's technically two jump cuts but - not the jarring "bad" jump cut in
the continuity sense.
