and what it says about the success of his practice if thats the best he could afford...

"..No worries Doc... Using our top of the line special effects software tool, not unlike the one used at Industrial Light & Magic, we'll make that scene so real, they'll be talking about it on the internet. It will go viral, for sure!"

I do not exaggerate when I say this is one of the greatest posts I've seen in the Cantina.

This is the Plan 9 From Outer Space of commercials, it's classic

Seriously, what stops them from cutting to black and playing the "crash" effect? Who thought this was a good idea? I have to know.

i am now waiting for someone from my beloved legal profession to do a sequel commercial to air right after this one, having that van roll over and plow into, i dunno, say a mini-van full of mothers, children, and senior citizens. then the attorney comes into the picture: "Sleepy drivers are just as dangerous as drunk drivers. If YOU'VE been hit by a sleep driver, call my law offices NOW. I CAN PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS!"

I cannot believe someone actually thought that looked acceptable. And it doesn't even make sense! The guy is just driving along in a wide open road, rubs his eyes, and suddenly manages to turn the car so hard that it flips and goes into a MASSIVE spin in air??

This is exactly the opposite. Simply spectacular. And it was done without computer tricks...

Actually, most of that was CGI. But it was nice none the less.

Has anyone ever seen the local San Antonio "Aramendia Plumbing" Commercials? with the two stupid CGI monsters?

Those are pretty bad also.
