Buy this junk

Why don't they show this commercial more often? I may be juvenile (ok, take the "may be" part out, I am totally immature.) I love this commercial, and it makes me laugh just as hard the hundredth time as it did the first.

Quality commercial production, friends. Quality.

Instead, I get to see Billy Mays screaming at me (and my kids) about how GREAT THIS PRODUCT IS! I even saw him hawking some sort of insurance the other day. Yeah, Oxyclean and insurance. The man can be bought. Speaking of Oxyclean, my middle kid is completely brainwashed that this is a "must have" in our house. I do use the stuff, but you know that he has seen one too man commercials when I come home from the grocery store to him saying, while peering into the bags, "What all did you get? Oh, Oxyclean...awesome!" Really. What four year old cares about that stuff? I think Billy Mays' overenthusiasm has convinced Hunter that stain removal is a thrill. Even Super Chase was pretending to swirl around a stained shirt in a bowl while playing in the tub the other night, declaring, "Now, don't drink this. It has Oxyclean in it". Actually, it came out "Ossycleaner", but you get the point.

Billy Mays info-mercials should be used as a tool of torture.

Great video.

I'm so glad to know there's nothing wrong with me...that Tide commercial throws me into hysterics whenever I see it! Just the other day, Anthony told me out of the blue, "Mama, that's the power of oxyclean!" I guess that commercial gets through to him. LOL
