This ad has been running in my market (Metro DC area) for weeks now, and it's driving me crazy. They repeat "Gregg's Got It!" but it sounds like they're saying, "Gregg's Scottish." Verrrrrry annoying.

Sorry, no YouTube on this one.

When I first heard it I thought it said "Great Scottish" it took a second listen to realize it said "Greggs got it!"

When I heard it, I thought they were saying "Gregg's Scottish" too! I can't believe nobody heard this when they replayed the demo commercial or whatever it is.

That commercial drives me nuts. Only I was hearing "Great Scottish" EVERY single annoying time!  I thought it was a take on the expression "Great Scott", but I still didn't get it. Then I looked up when the commercial was running.  It was then that I realized they were saying "Gregg's Got it". Don't they ever listen to these things? That happens all too often.

Another thread/reply that has me LMAOF! Declaritive statements like Gregg's Got It is so 1980's early 1990's. Isn't HH Gregg a recycled version of Circuit City? Back in the early 90's they had a commercial I hated with speed action with a plant growing and doggy doing something with an obnoxious singer. Guess the turd doesn't fall that far from the latrine/outhouse.
I approve this message.

LOLLOLLOLLOLLOL!!!

I brought it up months ago, this spokesguy is so terrible I think people felt the same and complained since they toned him down a notch on HH Gregg commercials (Although the Gregg's Got It is still bothersome)

He no longer does NTB tire commercials. He still does a local car dealership, but his voice is much more toned down. Guess he took some voice classes on how not to annoy the consumer.

Just heard their Labor Day ad. It sure sounded like Scottish to me.

New female narrator for HH Gregg and the big Super Bowl game.
Still sounds stupid and obnoxious and yes it still sounds like "Great Scottish!"

They constantly play these commercials, yet there aren't any located on my side of the state.  Rendering it pointless.
I am part of the target audience....and I hate it.
