This strikes me as a terribly effective commercial. It isn't abrasive like a Mr. Whipple. The visual works because it is interesting and out of context - opera on a bus. I esp like the guy with the horns! It drills the 877 CASH NOW right into your head, whether you like it or not. And it is all a bit tongue-in-cheek, which takes the edge off of any sales pitch and makes it more personal. It is even a bit entertaining.

It isn't comedy or art, but I would bet it makes the phones ring at 877 CASH NOW. It reminds me a bit of a car dealership commercial, in Southern California. After almost 40 years, I can still tell you how to get there from the little tune that they used: Pete Ellis Dodge, Long Beach Fwy, Firestone exit, Southgate.

I detest commercials. I have ever since I turned on Live365 internet radio. They have one single very irritating commercial that they repeat over and over. Whats it selling? Its selling commercial free Live365. I've never looked at commercials the same way again.

Cute! They should have played Simon and Garfunkle's "Baby Driver" as the sound track at the end. Stupid Madison-Avenue ad-types! Lost opportunities abound for those who are clueless to music, past and present.

A Dutch insurance company created some very weird situations where they would settle things.

I think of the second one every time I do the "This little piggy...." with my 1-year-old grandson.
