Um, has anybody else noticed that the old professor in the Farmers commercial ("We know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two") was the skinhead prison-gang leader in the late-90's Oz series...?

Kinda makes me wonder exactly what their convenient payment terms are...

how can you just pinpoint insurance commercials? they are all stupid and they drive you crazy. how many times can you hear the wayfair commercial without trashing the tv? or, everyone getting a lincoln for xmas? or, my truck is better than your truck?

how about the drug commercials at dinner time? by the time i've finished eating, i have every disease in the world!!! and, constipation and diarrhea!

play music!

Chevy is inviting us to join their family (for "family pricing") even as they lay their "family" workforce off.

Right on Steve, and they announce it as fast as they possibly can hoping that you aren’t paying attention.

I think the insurance commercials are some of the best on TV. Allstate mayhem, Geico, Farmers, Nationwide with Peyton Manning and Brad Paisley. They are all pretty good. Progressive is annoying.
