View Full Version : Has anyone noticed these weird commercials?

I have Comcast, FWIW.

Twice now, on two separate days and two separate channels, I've seen what looks like some hacker inserting commercials. It's a staticky image of weird clown masks.

I've seen it during a local affiliate's airing of Scrubs during the evening, and again this morning during a TNT airing of Law & Order. The one during Scrubs was before and after an Duracell Energizer Bunny commercial, but the one during Law & Order was not.

Am I nuts?

That's the ad campaign for the new Saw IV movie. The one time I saw it, the static and clown mask showed up without explanation, it went back to one or two regular commercials, then it came back with a typical narrated commercial for the movie.

Maybe that's it. I didn't see anything regarding Saw, just weird clown masks that made it look like someone had hacked into the cable system.
