They are so terrible, guilt tripping people and insulting our intelligence, like we can't see through their underhanded tactics to make us sign up. And the actors... do the actors have to be the most annoying hateful people on planet earth, is there a requirment that they be insincere phoney d-bags? lol

Are you talking about the seniors' life insurance? Those actors are seniors, themselves, and probably just happy to get acting work. Or is there something new. We haven't had tv for three years or so, so I may be missing something.

I agree. Those aren't the only commercials that use tactics and annoy me though. Those infomercials selling all kinds of crap and not to mention QVC when the phone calls come in, each one of them praising their products. Not a single one has a complaint or a genuine question.

Can't stand that "dumb ways to die" one. Having insurance doesn't prevent death or injury. It's just there for financial compensation. Or the lack of.
