Is it Great Aunt Susie, or a Rack of Lamb?

I think the Vytorin commercials are the stupidest marketing ploy created by the "ad wizards". What the heck? They show a piece of somewhat fattening food and then show a person next to it that is supposed to resemble the food. The whole scheme is that you can get high cholesterol/blood pressure from you "Fat-as-a-ham Dad" or just a "ham". Or maybe it's both!

I really don't have anything else to say about this. I had a whole rant in my mind, but I think that the idiocy of this commercial is so clear that you don't really need my mocking words.

Shout-out to Lindsay who is graduating today from Copper Mountain. Woo woo!!! And she'll be in DC in a few short weeks. I am so excited!

I think you should do a "lame-o commercial" post re anything and everything Geico. I hate ALL of their commercials. The gecko sucks and I can't stand the cavemen (and OMG did you hear ABC wants to do a spin-off sitcom??) The parodies of Old Navy commercials were *somewhat* acceptable, but as a whole they should just stick with selling cheap insurance and forego all attempts at clever advertising.

I just wonder who responds to those casting calls: "Wanted: fat ass who looks vaugely like a side of ham."

And God help me, I think the Geico cavemen are hillarious. "My mother's calling. I'll put it on speaker."

Ok, I'll admit that the mother on the speaker phone at the therapy appointment was somewhat amusing...
