They finally made me laugh...this one hit me right - wish I could have found the video.
 
New York Cabbie of Eastern European descent.
NOT in a good mood.
NOT a 'Giants' football fan.
Has excitable tourist couple in the back seat (I think they were 'Giants' fans) - and they are bugging him through the Plexiglas divider, so he slams the brakes and gives them both the 'stupid stamp' - their faces slap the Plexiglas at exactly the same time (isn't it nice to do things together?Big%20smile).
Finally, he drops his irritating fare at a large, vacant lot, where the wife looks at her husband, "...is this Central Park?", as the cabbie takes off....
 
It hit me just right, this morning.

BTW he IS a Giants fan and the passenger is a Cowboys fan watching the Cowboys do a touchdown on his iPhone.
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

I just saw this and came here to see if anyone else liked it too - glad I'm not crazy.

They're Cowboys fans. I love this series of commercials, even though this one should offend me, being I'm also a Cowboys fan.

However, I love the one with the rich Cowboys fan's dog sabotaging the Redskins neighbor house. Oh yeah, and the one with the waitress wringing the dishrag into the obnoxious Eagles fans' drinks.

Just in case you haven't seen it, they now have one where 2 police officers break the law because they don't like it that this guy can watch the game he wants.  I think sports people would like these.  I hate these; all of these awful people do awful things to someone who doesn't do sh*t to them!  Makes no sense.

I guess you gotta understand sports rivalries, esp. pro football. Yeah, they're mean-spirited, but it's more satirical than anything.

Then again, it does get that serious for some people. Shocked

The cop one bothers me because the tazing incident is WAAAAAY too close to reality.

Try being a Yankees fan raised in New England! Wrong sport, but you get the idea.

I'm sorry if i sounded really witchy.  Oh, I don't watch much sports now, but I have in the past and because of my job I keep up with major sports news.  That said, I just don't like commercials that don't make sense as to how they are appealing to a potential customer, and for me, they are missing the mark.  And I might be okay with the "neighbors, etc." actions, if the "new guy"was somehow forcing them to watch his team or mess up their reception or something.  Does that make sense?  And if I did like one, it would be the voodoo doll, its still mean but it took some thinking to come up with it.
