    I don't know if he's really selling anything. I just get the feeling that he's bashing Verizon.

    I, too, think it's a good concept with an appropriate use of a prop.

    Using a wooden wind-up doll in a psychiatric drug commercial? Really?

    there is another of the pig commercials where a young girl feeds the baby pig some bacon and a voice says "that's just so wrong". I don't know what the product is but the commercial is pretty funny.

    The commercial with the pig eating ham at a restaurant.

    I was just coming here to say, "Get Luke Wilson off my TV NOW!!!" I think it's because they play those commercials sometimes twice a break and every break during a football game, which is just obnoxious. And the AT&T/Verizon wars remind me of the SWB/Sprint long distance landline wars about 12 years ago. Didn't care then; don't care now.

    I think it's a Bud Lite commercial, where a wife uses a nail gun to attach a flower to her husband's lapel.

    I'm not posting for me, but for my cats. They hate the Direct TV commercials because it always ends with a clarinet playing a few notes. The sound scares them... they also hate the sound of screaming, sirens, anything high pitched. They run out of the room.

    David Spade has second thoughts about doing this commercial.

    I think of how Chris Farley died before his time than the name of the product when this commercial is on.
