In Central New York two local commercial providers get me running for the remote.
A) Fucillo Car Dealers...where everything is "HUUUUUGGGGE"
B) The 'Heavy Hitters'; two smarmy lawyers in a corny series of green screen commercials. They are apparently a franchise as other firms in Albany and Western NY use the same ones. They come complete with a gagging jingle...


Ugh... "the heavy hitters are all you need, call 1-800-LAW thirteen thirty three" (shudder)
 
Now it's "Hurt in a car? Call William Mattar" or "10 gimme 20, 20 gimme 30, 30 gimme 40, that's the sound you'll hear at a Broztek auction!"
 
Some of the girls hawking cars for local dealerships are easy to watch though.

    Holy Crap! The New Jersey Furniture guy in the ads isn't a furniture guy at all. His name is Johnny Ross, and he's a professional pitchman and he's got a website!
