I liked it. Not sure why it is the "worst".

I'm in advertising and I'm not saying "great", but it's catchy and effective.

Y'know, I wasn't going to buy anything, but it turns out this place is just like a mini-mall, that sold it for me.

I like the way his suites always match the furniture he is in front of. If he wasn't so fat he would look like a floating head.

I didn't even notice until you brought my attention to that. Even better.

Kudos to the guy for making such a cheeseball commercial. I was expecting him to start break-dancing 80's style at some point.

While slighly painful to listen to all the way through, it's actually a way better commercial than the usual ones where some guy screams at you while you're bombarded with gigantic yellow "SALE!!!!" lettering across the screen.

Kudos for originality.

Considering that it probably costed, oh I guess 10 dollars to make, it isn't so bad actually.

Fuccillo Auto Mall on the other hand is soooooooo much worse. This is just a taste. Hearing "HUUUUUUGE" for the ten millionth time will turn you off from TV for good. Believe me.

There used to be a guy who sold used cars and had a superman in a cape commercial or something like that. Anyone remember this?

I have Grave's Disease (and 4 surgeries to correct exothalmus) and y'all are just mean, nasty people for pointing such a thing out. Like we aren't insecure enuff already, we need people to talk **** about it.

It's a mini mall. Let's go back to that.

Ahhhhahahahahaha.

When I lived in Albany for a while, this guy was everywhere -- on TV, on the radio, on the side of city buses, etc. I once saw a thirty minute program of Fuccillo commercial outtakes at like 2 a.m. on some local station. So sad.

Any commercial that gets posted to YouTube and then to forums is doing exactly what it's supposed to be doing.

All publicity is good publicity.

There is always this post in one of these discussions. If a mediocre product is being marketed to me very poorly, I'm going to be less inclined towards purchasing it. Take that one Zune ad from a while ago. (Just as an example since this is an Apple forum after all.) Viral marketing be DAMNED. I'm still not buying it.

At the 3 minute mark it was just too much for me to bear. I now feel light headed and a little nauseous to boot.

When in Florida last year I had the motel TV on while I was reading. All of a sudden, an enthusiastic voice says "Life's better with Cox!". Apparently, Cox is the media/cable provider for the area. We spent the rest of the trip coming up with alternate slogans. "Cox: pounding the competition.", "Cox: heads above the rest!", "Cox: fun for the whole family!", etc.
