Daytime commercials

A lot of daytime commercials are aimed at old people and people with medical problems. Maybe I’m twisted, but here are some thoughts on them.

Wilfred Brimley diabetes commercial
Gruff old guy. He says, ‘You may think [something or other], but you don’t!’ He says it in such a way that I expect him to say, ‘Listen up, maggots!’

Diabetes testing thing
‘It’s virtually pain-free. Virtually pain-free!’ Okay, cue the echo a la MST3K.

I keep thinking that ‘Aarp!’ sounds like a death-gasp.
