    Huh. Well, okay. Is he famous? It's not that I consider myself on the cutting edge of the guitar scene, because I'm not, but damn.

    I thought they were just trying to have a Hispanic Johnny Cash-looking guy for a long time.

    And it's still a dumb commercial.

    If you're into classical guitar (which I'm not, but I knew someone that was), then he's famous. I think he was also more famous several decades ago before he was injured in a car wreck (I think?). Otherwise, no, not so much.

    I thought it was a fake Johnny Cash, too. The whole commercial seems like a jokey poke-in-the-ribs.

    The other day my husband and I were driving in the car and I found an old lottery ticket in my purse that I said: "I need to check this".

    He says:"I checked ours from last night (64 million) and we didn't win, but I've got good news"

    Me falling for it: "what?"

    him: "I just saved a bunch of money on our car insurance by switching to Geico".

    He thought it was hysterical because last week he did switch our ins. to Geico.

    I hate those commercials now.

    I want to stick my foot throught the tv screen when I see the stupid Life Alert commercials where the lady says having Life Alert makes her feel safer, more independent and even younger.

    Ok, I get the first two but I've got news for you, lady. A device to help you summon help doesn't make you any younger. It just annoys the heck out of me hearing that!

    That would be like me saying I love Baconators because they make me feel less hungry, satisfied, and even richer.

    I always want to put my foot through the TV when this Bankruptcy Lawyer Peter Francis Geraci comes on. He has been annoying me for more years than I can count. ARRRGH

    ...or radio, whenever I see or hear a commercial for Kaiser Permanente -- especially the latest when they tell how all the doctors/departments are connected to the patients through its fabulous network and website. BS!!! Our PCP, at our last frustrating attempt at coordinating care for the hubby, told us that the departments *don't* communicate with each other regarding patient care issues (i.e.: if someone is a transplant recipient, etc.); they don't "have time." That's our maze to navigate. Which, okay, fine ... just don't give me the happy horses**t about how you're all connected and communicating with each other. Thrive.... yeah, right....Uggghhhh!!!!

    When the obnoxious trashing political commercial come on, back to back, 8 in a row!!!!!
    Yep, that's how bad it's gotten here now, & we still have over 3 weeks to go.
    It's a wonder the TV is still intact.

    Whenever they have commercials that say "call now" because the first _____ get some amazing bonus - and there are loud phones ringing in the background.
