The Qwest TV "Jack My Price Up" Or is it "Jack off with Qwest" really SUCKS... Let me repeat that it SUCKS. Apart from it being stupid, 15 of the 30 seconds are fucking hard to read titles with the flyshit sized legal type taking up most of the screen. McLain, Douchbag of Denver should be shot with shit...
DISCLAIMER... I did all the Qwest stuff that didn't SUCK a few years ago.
It's what I've said about most of the shit you see on TV now... Look at Avis, Alka Seltzer, VW, Volvo, FedEx, you name it... All you can say about the current stuff is besides it costing a fortune... It SUCKS.
I feel better now.
