Wait, what?  Two posts earlier you said you thought they were great. . . confused13.gif

So true. I am usually not someone who wants to shoot somebody, but that Enzyte guy makes me want to borrow somebody's gun and get rid of him.

Those mop commercials where they play "Don't You Want Me Baby?" and the mops are stalking their former owners. Creepy.

The Quizno's commercials with the gay oven are so disturbing on so many levels. I think there was even a thread about them in RS.

Indeed I forgot about him.

Before Billy Fucillo, we had Justin Resnick, who owned a small chain of mattress stores.  That's right, mattress stores.  All he sold was mattresses, but he needed nine locations to do it.  Resnick was a bald middle-aged guy in pajamas who thought he was funny.  He'd end each commercial by reciting the list of his store locations, including "In Colonie, where Air-Tite Windows ripped our sign down!"  He had an ongoing public feud with this other business, Air-Tite Windows.

There oughtta be a law against small business owners doing their own commercials.  They can be so annoying, and it's pure egoism on their part that they think they can do as good a job as an actor.

God, those commercials are creepy. I really am not interested in having my sandwich associated with phallic imagery. All they do is make me want to eat at Subway instead.

I truly think Billy Fucillo has lost his mind.  It used to be he was just uber annoying, now I really think he's a super alcoholic or raging druggie.  And the blond mistress or whatever?  blech  062802puke_prv.gif

I really hate the Arby's (I think it's Arby's*) featuring the background music "Cherry Pie", because I cannot stand that damn song.  Every time the ad comes on, the f*cking song lodges itself in my head and won't leave.  

*When people remember the ad, but not the product, it's a failure.
