    You know this thread makes me really love the fact that I have DVR. I am so obsessed with recording stuff and fast forwarding the commercials.

      I NEED a DVR. FI loves to watch RAW every week (wrestling) and I swear that it's during that show the worst commercials ever begin to air. I have to mute the tv for the entire time.

            I read "The Word of Mouth Manual: Volume II" (I'm a BzzAgent, any other agents would probably have read this too) and they actually mentioned the Head-On commercial in the manual. The commercial is VERY annoying, that's obvious, but it's also VERY effective. First, you need to hear about something three times and then you remember it (although they say it WAY more than three times). The first time, you ask "What is it?" The second time "What of it?" and then the third time, you're fully aware of it. Also, because the commercial is SO ridiculous, and it drives you up the wall, you end up talking about it (like you ladies have been doing throughout this thread) and therefore spreading news of the product through word of mouth

            If anyone is interested, you should read the WOM manual, it's actually quite interesting (and explains some crazy marketing trends of the past). You can find it here (Along with some info on BzzAgents):
