Does this commercial bug anyone else?

The part that makes me really Grrrrrr is when Julia calmly says "But I called my mom and she said try OxiClean."

First of all, she's smiling while she tells this story. Clearly she's on some serious medication because I don't know any woman who would be smiling about the fact that her Ritalin-deprived child was running through the house WITH MUDDY SHOES! I know that if I did that, I would have been beaten to within an inch of my life.

Second, if I called my mom and told her the kids had run through the house with muddy shoes and jumped on the bed, she wouldn't calmly tell me to use OxiClean. She'd tell me to beat those kids to a pulp and make THEM clean up the mess. And you can bet that the next time the kids visited Memere, she'd lecture them.

I guess my commercial will be filmed from prison.

GRRRRR! I still don't know why the comment thingy won't work, but whatever! My apologies to everyone who wanted to tell me how much they hated this commercial too. Ya'll can hate vicariously through me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and showing some love for the Keith O video.

If my kids had run through the house with muddy shoes their Memere would have said the same thing!

My Mom and Dad's parents were all French-Canadian....from Trois- Pistoles and Trois-Riviere
