  1. the one with the dog collar is just sterotypical and rude to anyone who is alternative, punk,etc. so dont expect anyone of that nature to buy direct tv because thats just making fun of them.

  2. Oh relax. I don't think they're too worried. The guy on the couch is also stereotypical. And, hid "stereotype" is the most likely purchaser of Direct TV.

  3. Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I'll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon.

  4. the newest one... "Dont make your house explode." Id f'n EPIC!
