This may be a regional deal, but lately I've been won over by the Dish Network "my TV sucks" spot.
1. To hear a Mom say "TV sucks" got my attention,
2. The visual of the TV "sucking" household
stuff to the screen was interesting.
3. There was an actual "call to action" by her friend saying that they have Dish Network and it doesn't suck.
The only problem: The advertiser may have Direct TV, I'm not 100% sure.
This is one gag too many to make it real funny, but it's quite good.
Big Pong! Ha! Of course it's meant to be Bigpond, Australian Telstra's Internet Service Provider.
