How about names like those current drugs which sound like black baby names:

Pristique
Boveva
Lotrell
Jenuvia
Osphena
This company has tapped into diversity. I'm waiting for the Gay grandma with her old lady girlfriend/wife, how about a Hispanic one? While we are at it a religious Jewish one and even Asian but, this companie's budget for advertising is so cheap they still will have the same names, same butch sounding grandma, funny looking cat and bad animation it's kitschy.

In my area, there is a black version and a white version. Characters sound the same, they just darken grandma and Ellie for variation in different targeted markets. So cheesy and awful. Grandma looks like she has four legs...

A funny thing happened to Granny Butch in both the white and black commercials. From sitting with her Cheshire kitty cat to skateboarding and making Peppermint Patty sound feminine, she lost three of those four legs or, shall we say 2.75 as the thing in the air looks like a botched amputated stump. She shouldn't have gone to that cutrate butcher instead of the MD. Catch me if you can kiddio cause sh*t happens. The PC crowd should do a kiddies book: "Ellie got Two Grandmas!" In the "urban version," they could spend some coin and rename her: Pristique, Clinique, Lotrell, Boneva, Osphena, or Farxiga!

This commercial is creepy. Kind of like the mid-late 1960's version of "The Best Of CBS" opening, The Universal City 1964-71, Paramount 1968-69-1969-70 jingles were.....ShockedShockedShockedShockedSickSickSickSick

Hey, and I thought this was just a local ad. Who knew it was plaguing you all in other states, too LOL

My Mom has a bad knee that gets especially painful during cold weather. We laugh every time this comes on and grandma is scooting along on the kid's SKATEBOARD at the end. No medical miracle is going to take a dumpy senior citizen from "I can't get out of my chair" to killin' it at the skate park.

The black granny version is also airing on TruTV, and may also be airing on other cable networks...not just BET. Still kind of creepy, especially the girl.
I still most often see the white granny version - still unacceptable animation for the 21st century.

I swear with those 1970's square peepers, honkey granny looks like she'd fit right in on King of the Hill. She could be Peggy's mom. I could imagine Granny Butch talking Texas turkey to Bobby. "Bobby, just realize y'all just butt fugly and a retard lemme intraduce ya to a nice little girl who is also touched with a big head and a pencil neck. And tell yer slutty ho neice LuAnn to get off her back close those legs and get to twirling in the local pageant toot suite, chop chop.

HATE THIS AD!!!

Oh, and when was the last time you heard someone say "Kiddo"?
I am 59, and even MY grandmother didn't talk like that.
The person who made this must be under the age of 12, and the voices suck, too!

I think they used the exact same audio for both videos. None of it fits! A piss poor attempt to sell a crappy product.

This commercial has returned w/ a vengeance. I saw this commercial a couple nights ago on Wheel of Fortune. The animation is still as horrible as its been. The version I saw was the white grandma.

If I may point out the three worst types of animation, in my opinion...

3. Morphing Animation (where everything is "animated" by distorting the body parts to simulate movement) - Franny's Feet, Jim Henson's Hoobs animation segments
2. Storybook Animation (where it's just drawings where the camera focuses on parts of it as dialogue is read) - 1980s Care Bare VHS, Woof, Aesop's Fables, those Legend of the Hidden Temple stories that Olmec narrated
1.  This commerical

There's ZERO continuity!  The girl looks nothing like her grandmother, who is drawn in a different style altogether, then we are shown a storybook drawing of an elderly lady holding her knee, and then the commercial ends with grandma "skateboarding" down a 4 year old's design of a street.  It's not even bad animation, because even bad animation has some grade of contiunity within its layout; it's lazy animation.

And, they're airing it again!  It's one thing to air on those digital airwave stations that are full of malpractice lawsuit ads, but I've seen this on cable TV.

Did anyone else notice that in the white version of this commercial, the grandma changes design completely? They can't even be bothered to keep up with that! Completely reflects the laziness shown here.

Why would they put any time or effort into animation? That would cost more money and their main focus is probably on whatever bait and switch scam they're running behind the scenes and sucking every nickel they can get out of it.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

On YouTube, they ripped this commercial apart in the comments. LOL. One poster said,"I love how Grandma tells Elly,"Look how much fun I am having with my knee brace! Maybe you should get a knee brace too, Elly?" I hope to God that no 8 year old would need a knee brace!"

"This commercial reminds me of Clutch Cargo, and Clutch Cargo was sh-t animation. "

"I don't know what's creepier. The girl's eyes or Grandma's computerized lips."
Using nuclear weapons on problem people is not the answer, you psychopath!
