I couldn't find it on YouTube, but the commercial is a parody of Lassie, with a man stuck in the well. The dog goes back to summon her master, who is quite possibly the biggest dumbass in commercial history. I'm serious, this fool makes Homer Simpson look like Alex Trebek!

Anyways, the dog tries to alert her moron owner, who keeps brushing the alerts off as the dog being a dumb dog. The dog literally draws it out for the owner who thinks she wants to play Pictionary or something, I dunno.

I understand the play on Lassie, but the guy is so fCensoreding stupid, I can't even find the humor in this one.

If anything I think the dog's calling 911 to tell them "Help Help! I'm trapped in a house with a moron!".

"That's a picture of ole man Sutter, I don't wanna use that on my Capital One card."
Lassie has to be thinking..... "someone please adopt me."
Those commercials have never been funny, they need to bring back the Capital One Vikings.

Holy sh*t! An ax? Really? Not taking the lazy way out with a gun, you want to get up out of your chair and use an ax! That's motivation, I admire that.
 
Roomate: (comes in through front door, assesses the damaged apartment and Mooch sitting on the floor with an ax in her lap stewing among the utter and complete devestation) "So, how many times did they play that Capital One ad today?" (receives ax to the forehead)

1.  The guy sounds like he's drank a bottle of Jack Daniels when he screams "Lady, get help"
 
2.  If you're stupid enough to fall into a well, you should be left there anyway.
 
3.  Someone should get a capital one card and put that picture of "Old Man Sutter" on their card.

i'll be the dissenter here. but these spots are cast, shot and edited quite well. the repunzel and kid-with-spaghetti-on-his-head spots in particular. the campaign concept may be annoying and done to death, but the executions are great.

BTW the guy in the lassie parody is supposed to be stupid. that's the idea. again, like it or hate it. but it's not just bad direction or acting. this is one of those dumb & dumber set-ups which always play well with the super bowl crowd (that and people getting hit in the nads).

Old man Sutter reminds me of "Blue" from Old School.

GE had the BEST 'Lassie' parody...never have seen the CapOne version.
They probably just tried to 'capatalize' on this:

It's old it's dumb it's stupid and that's why I HATE IT!!!!Angry

It's the same stupid joke played over again for the 5,000,578,789th time IT GETS TIRING the same as people getting hit in the crotch is tiring.

IT GETS OLD FAST!!!!!!!!

Plus what it is it with ad agencies thinking their viewers as 5 year olds or low IQ morons who will laugh at everything and anything that these ad holes churn out from their stinky smelly junky ad factories run by hamsters on wheels.

It's same old sh*t with a different name THAT'S WHY I HATE IT!Angry
