Reminds me of an auto insurance commercial where the first 10-15 seconds of the commercial shows a car driving at high speed w/o a driver.

Then a "young-ish" person pops up with a joyful shout lofting a just found cassette tape . . . which he then puts into the car's player.

Their tagline . . . something to the effect of "we don't insure these people so that you're not paying for their accidents."

I like their "Use your blinkers correctly" and "Keep your eyes on the road" commercials.

You know, once you drive your new car off the lot, it loses value. Don't whine about the insurance companies not turning a blind eye to that fact.

It's not the company's fault you're a bad risk.

This one annoys me the most.

Can't stand the Sprint commercials with that dancing woman. There is something so incredibly annoying about her even though she never speaks a word.
