I like how EVERY commercial franchise in this video (Family Guy / Blue Collar Comedy / Mike Myers ) is something that I once thought was fairly funny, but now find to be annoying and trite.
Also, +1 for the -added- mediocrity of this being a video recording of a TV.

5 stars for the spastic death-thrashes of marketing agencies who now find their normal advertising mediums being easily circumvented by rapidly increasing audience control. Die in a fire, fuckwads.
We were watching something on TIVO (House, I think?) and when you fast forward through the ads, the commercials for "The Moment of Truth" actually cause your TIVO to ding at you. It's not readily mistakable for any actual TIVO sounds or anything, just a *ping* or three to say HEY WATCH THIS ASSHOLE.
They're trying. They're really, really trying.
Fuck off, Engvall/TBS. You don't have me come into your home and interrupt whatever the hell it is you watch to tell you about something entirely different.
You're making it damn interesting for me to make a device that allows me to do it remotely to asshole celebrities and advertising executives, though.
Well, at least he's interrupting Family Guy, so it's a safe bet that episode barely has any
HI, FOLKS, CARLOS MENCIA HERE. BE SURE TO CATCH MY HILARIOUS SHOW, FEATURING JOKES OTHER COMEDIANS DON'T WANT ANYMORE AND A SKIT WHERE A GUY IN A SOMBRERO FARTS A LOT! IF I SAY "WETBACK" ENOUGH TIMES I'LL BE JUST LIKE A LATINO DAVE CHAPELLE! I WILL, YOU'LL SEE! THAT'S AN-
HI, I'M THE VIKING FROM THE SNICKERS COMMERCIALS. BUY A SNICKERS! AND NOW BACK TO CARLOS MENCIA.
-ALL NEW EPISODE OF MIND OF MENCIA, TONIGHT RIGHT AFTER LITTLE BUSH! NOW BACK TO XENOCIDE'S COMMENT.
sort of plot to follow anyway.

Almost all stars given because you not only can tell that Bill Engvall felt like an utter tool reciting those lines in front of whatever green screen they had set up in whatever backwater Atlanta warehouse, but also because you know when he finally sees it in post-production and his tv family pops up to dance awkwardly around him, he fully, finally realized "I am a dancing monkey. I am paid to caper and sway." and he wished he were dead, just a little.
HEERE'S YUR SIGN HYUCK HYUCK
I can see this sitcom already. Lemme guess...it's basically identical to George Lopez only the jokes all have chicano, latino, mexican, and such all scrawled out and replaced with redneck, hick, white trash.
So can you tell us if ad people live completly in a bubble where they have no idea how offensively stupid people find things like this?
p.s. i liked TBS better when it was The Beastmaster Station.

5 stars because I never would have known of this ad unless it had been shown to me by the medium that is making such advertising necessary.
Hey, same here. Thanks, Gods of Irony! And double-thanks to the guys who encode tv shows for download so I don't have to sit through commercials anymore. You guys are the real heroes. To hell with firemen.
I've seen this. On a different episode.
This confirms my suspicion that it is designed to ruin the comic timing of a joke.
I've never thought Bill Hicks was more right than I think he is right now.
"if you work in advertising kill yourself" could be tagged on a lot of other commercials around here.
