Any time Tiny's ads come on I either switch the channel for a couple of minutes or at least hit the mute button. You may recall the battles Tiny and I had here on HT when he was attacking Aunty Lynn, and myself and others here jumped all over him for *using* his son for his own gain.

Hate it, hate it. Took forever to figure it out. Some plumber with a wrench working on a kitchen sink. What does that have to do with a solar company? Only thing I can guess is that the kitchen sink wasn't getting hot water because the solar panels weren't affecting the water heater. Dunno. Don't care.

I don't like the beatle/Beetle ad. But having known Jake for around 16 years I can tell you his smile is definitely not phony. What you see is the way he is in real life.

And here's a new one for this thread, and it's about commercials on KGMB. Did Mahlon Moore buy that channel? His voice is on around 95% of their commercials and has been for several years. I love Mahlon as a person, but dang, every KGMB commercial sounds the same!

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
