Special Sauce

Heh.

I don't know which agency is responsible, but the new Dish Network commercials really crack me up.

"What's that breeze?"
"Oh, that's our TV. It sucks."
"Your TV?"
"Yes, the Cable sucks, the selection sucks, and the bill sucks too. It sucks bigtime. Doesn't yours?"

Heh. Any commercial (that isn't for a vacuum) that uses "Sucks" that often? Funny.

They're on a par with the Citi "identity theft" commercials, for amusement value. Kudos.

I love those commercials, except the one that show the tattooed guy.

I loved the reversal on that idea in the print ads for some bank or another, where they showed a quintessential Hell's Angel...and then the pencil-necked geek (in a small inset) that stole his debit card.

I was almost crying when I just saw that one for the first time. It was great comic relief for all the stress we've been under from Katrina, and it came on right during a break in CNN's coverage.

Hi Shill!


And yes- those commercials are really sanity savers right now- a little smidgen of comic relief helps.
