Anyway, part of our enjoyment of this brief interlude is watching the commercials. The commercials are some of the roughest, most obnoxious, obvious cheap imitations of real commercials, but … they make us laugh. At this hour of the day there are a lot of ads for Lawyers, car insurance, and cheap Internet deals, but the one that I really want to bring to you attention today is a Legal firm. For the life of me at this moment, I can’t tell you which firm. It would be some firm from Washington State somewhere.
On your screen will be the face of a well-dressed white male. He’s in mid to late 50’s, kind of dower, but trying to look serious, and his dialogue runs something like this:
“If you’ve been hurt in any kind of accident call 1-800-677-blah blah blah. We at Creepy Lawyers with No-Advertising Budget want to help you. CALL 1-800-677-blah blah blah … NOWWW!!! We want to hear from YOU if YOU’VE been hurt in any kind of accident. Call … NOWWW!“ “
BUT, what you actually hear him say is: “If you been hurtin’. Any kind of accident. Call 1-800-677-blah blah blah. We at Creepy Lawyers with No-Advertising Budget want to help you. CALL 1-800-677-blah blah blah NOWWW!!! We want to hear from YOU if YOU been hurtin’. Any kind of accident. NOWWW!“
Not only does the man not enunciate, but they’ve run this commercial EVERYDAY for well over a year. Do the people that make these edit these things not do a quality control chech??? Hubby and I do remember the (right) phone number, but 1) have no idea of the firm name, and 2) have absolutely no intention of calling.
Every time it comes on, T and I just look at each other and begin to laugh.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll tell you about another one that really bites.
