Do you think those two women in the car are a couple? This might be the most progressive business advertisement I've ever seen, and I can hit Cambridge, MA with a rock.

So the post doesn't recognize and support your personal relevance. That is unfortunate. So do they have credit unions in Japan? How about black full figured gals? Actually, I bet if the Japanese saw this commercial they'd think it was a sequel to Ichi The Killer. Or a Real Sex type show.

Hah! Awesome. I like the part at the end where they jubilantly throw the little moose babies into the air.

This was disturbing, and then amusing, and after Mayor Curley's observation, it became encouraging as well. Nicely done.

As added background, I noticed that this video was made by a duo called Rhett & Link. This video was part of a campaign sponsored by Microbilt, where the two went around filming ads for local businesses.

Oh, and that Skippy guy was a plant.

I started using Chrome exclusively about a week ago and their website is the first one I've seen that doesn't display right. I like how BFFCU could also stand for Best Friends Forever! Credit Union.

Yes! Bucks County love!

I don't have anything valuable to add, but I am a born-and-raised Bucks Countian, so feel obligated to drop in and bask in the reflected glory of BFFCU.

Oh, I didn't realize it was a complete setup. I thought it was one of those really bad, actually real commercials, not just a complete setup by the makers of the commercial. Still hilarious though, like Big Bill Hell's.

LISTEN HERE. My people FOUNDED Bucks County1. They CAME OVER on a BOAT with William PENN. They ENDURED the ravages of the OCEAN and the uncaring cruelty of NATURE to carve out a LIFE in this NEW WORLD...

...and this is worthy of their glory.

this is some sort of viral meta-ad for microbilt.com which seems to be selling credit and data services to small business...sort of takes the fun out of it.

Cullman Trailer Liquidation kicks all kinds of ass -- looks like it was made by the bastard offspring of David Lynch and Michael Bay. If I ever need a liquidated trailer, this is the guy I'm calling.

One the one hand I'm disturbed; what with the furry massaging and all. But on the other I have to admit that just running them over hadn't ever occurred to me before.

And really, it seems so obvious when you think about it.

Thanks Bucks First!

As a producer of various televisions, I envision a show where those two women should team up and solve crimes while balancing it with their day jobs as moms/professional hunters.

I am either missing a reference (in which case I apologize for requesting that you ruin the joke by explaining it) or I am being told how I feel about something by someone who is wrong about it. I wish there were a funny way for me to request clarification on the point, but I can't think of anything.

It was just a joke. A lame play on words. It's not even funny, I guess. You can delete it if you feel you need to.

Not ironic at all.
I am not being sarcastic.

I will get a trailer at Cullman Liquidation Center to live in so I can save some bucks in the Bucks First Federal Credit Union and use the dividends to get a tattoo at True Blue Tattoos that says "I love this commercial".

That is how much I liked it.

Well the back end of the metaphor is all well and good, but is this how people in Bucks County make their money in the first place? Do they just drive around hoping to get lucky and run over some cash in the middle of the road? I predict disaster if we take this stranger's advice.
