Does This Policy Cover Flux Capacitor Damage?

By Skylers Dad from Some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps.

Updated: Because Beckeye is a demanding, albeit clever bitch, a post title has been added. Thanks Beckeye!

Some days you stumble across a video or commercial that is such a white-hot mess you don't know whether to laugh or poke both your eyes out with a spork.

This wonderful piece of marketing has it all:

Bad acting? Check
Bad Music? Check
Incredibly bad rip-off of a movie? Double Check!
Horrendous special effects? Let's just say that my son's middle school video class turned out a better product.

From the opening 5 seconds of dead air they just left in, cause you know, it costs a lot to do things twice, to the poorly disguised porn movie within the commercial (see 15 seconds, "Isn't there anything I can do?) it just keeps insulting your senses. The guy doing Christopher Lloyd's character of Dr. Emmitt Brown seems to think he is supposed to do him as Adam Sandler! But nothing is quite as bad as the arm pushing the toy dino through the shot.

Well done Insurance King, I am turning over the house and the car to you today!

Ha Ha,,,,I like it !! But then again I love B rated movies with all the bad acting.

That's FANTASTIC! So bad it's good, in a strange Möbius strip of good badness...

Ummm, is it just me or does this look like it's going to turn into some cheap porno.

Not that I would know.

...and watching that commercial is easier (and cheaper) than dropping acid.

By the way, you need a post title up in here. Might I suggest "Dino-Mite?" Or "1.21 Jigowatts of Shit?" Or "Does This Policy Cover Flux Capacitor Damage?" Or "All That's Missing is a Huey Lewis Song?"

I still can't understand why insurance commercials are generally written to a third grade level.
