Here it is June already, and time for our annual worst tv commercial survey. There are so many to choose from, but mostly the commercials are better fare than the programming. Here’s my choice.
Around central new york, the hands-down most obnoxious commercial is anything from Billy HUGE, so we will disqualify him from the start. For my nomination, there is a testimonial for a local comical law firm called A&C (for ambulance chasers?) with a young girl who admits that she was standing in the back of a moving pickup truck, somehow fell out and broke her collarbone, and the boys at A&C got her the huge $$$ she so deserved. Picture that. If she was stupid enough to ride standing in the back of a pickup, a large sum of money is NOT what she deserved. I once saw a young girl in ICU who did the same thing, only she landed on her head. I’m sure she would have settled for a broken collarbone if she could have walked out of the hospital. Of course, if she had survived, she probably would have gone for a large cash settlement too. The laws do not make allowances for foolishness.
