But damn, they creep me out.
If you haven’t seen them, they feature Dean Winters, best known — to me at least — as the guy who played Dennis on 30 Rock. In the first one I saw, he’s sitting on a roof and he says something like “I’m your satellite dish; you got on the roof and adjusted me so you could watch the game. But now I’m loose.” And then he rolls off the roof and onto the car that’s in the driveway. Dang!
This morning I was driving to work and an Expedition had two of those cheapo flags they hand out at Grizzlies games jury-rigged to the hood. Normally I admire the DIY spirit, but those flags are meant to be waved at games. Not from cars going 60 mph. They’re flimsy nylon flags mounted to flimsy plastic sticks but I guess this person thought it would be a good idea to attach them to his vehicle, securing them by closing the hood on the sticks. I swear if I didn’t recognize the flags I wouldn’t even have known what they were supposed to be supporting, they were flapping so violently. It was almost miraculous that the flags were even intact, really.
Then my mind flashed to this horrifying commercial and I got the hell away from that car A.S.A.P.
So, bravo, Allstate… I guess… You have officially gotten my attention.
