More YouTube? Yes, more YouTube.
From the people too stupid to live who brought you instructions on toothpick boxes and "HOT" labels on hot coffee comes this latest moronic warning:
At the very beginning of the commercial, at the bottom of the screen in tiny type, it actually says the following:
"SCENE FROM POLTERGEIST. NOT INTENDED TO DEPICT ACTUAL CABLE VIEWING EXPERIENCE."
The sad thing is, if they hadn't included that warning, which essentially says, "This fake scene cribbed from a horror movie is not intended to be taken literally, dummy," some idiot -- or even more likely, some dick deliberately playing the idiot -- would have found some way to sue DirecTV over this.
Somehow I want to blame Bush for this. Can I blame Bush? I blame Bush.
