    Funny?/Not Funny?
    I like the fact that the "Bass Coq" plays a Thunderbird !
    (The bass on the song even sounds like it was recorded w/
    a T-bird, to my ears)

    I think it's dumb. I prefer the wacky Geico commercials.

    I'm usually patient with commercials, but this one gets the mute or the channel change almost every time.

    It scared my kids during a cartoon's commercial break. Too long, too "non-product", and too dark.

    I was wondering if anyone else caught the coqroq.com website. I surprised myself by catching a glimpse of the T-Bird as well! :)

    It sounds a little perverted to me: coq-roq?
    Sounds like a title to a porn movie.

    Stupid... everyone in that band should be kicked in the throat... repeatedly...

    But I wouldn't mind having that T-Bird...

    I guess it might be a play on the phrase "roq out with your coq out"
     
  9. It's actually a clever analogy for the pain and suffering of Vern "Mini-Me" Troyer when he ate some bad pork and had to use a public toilet and didn't have a step stool. It fills me with anger, sorrow, and a slight itch.
