A new incredibly annoying commercial from J.G. Wentworth.  Nobody likes opera, so lets do a commercial with it.

Can you believe that the spokesman is none other than (Stage Name) Orson Bean...anyone remember him with the likes of Allen Ludden, Betty White, Bill Cullen and Kitty Carlysle on shows like "What's My Line", "To Tell the Truth"....
and, well heck! Here's some trivia...
 The newborn (Real Name) Dallas Burroughs was a second cousin to Calvin Coolidge, who was President of the United States at the time of his birth.

Actually Pa, I wasn't 100% sure so I just checked his IMDB record...he was on both, plus "I've Got A Secret."  I guess he was the perfect guest panelist.

That's where I got most of my information...the moment I saw the show listings it all came flooding back (I really liked both 'To Tell The Truth' and 'What's My Line')...

I haven't seen the commercial - which DOES indeed sound stupid, but, um, well, uh, I LIKE opera!

oh hey...Thanks, Madawee! Guess I took the discussion off-track and over the cliff...I can't believe they actually made ANOTHER J.G.W. commercial; have seen it, but I'm really hoping Orson Bean isn't SINGING about "...it's YOUR cash - use it when YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUU need it!"

(it isn't over 'till the annoying spokesman sings...)

Another "autoflip" commercial. Here's what the commercial really says - "It's your money, and WE want it now!"

Opera is to music what purgatory is to theology.
 
That said...in contrast to Wentworth's repetitive screaming commercials, this actually isn't that bad IMHO. The only truly bad part is ol' J. G. getting his five seconds of facetime as the conductor.
 
A lifetime ban from television is in order for him.

I just heard this commercial a few minutes ago, did a search, and lo- and behold, here we all are.   I can not believe someone thought up this concept for a commercial, presented it, and other people said "What a great idea!"  I seriously turn the channel when I hear it begin.

It seems like this commercial is shown at least a dozen times a day. I literally want to throw my remote through my TV every time it is shown. I have turned the channel on many occasions because of this commercial.

I have hated all JG Wentworth commercials ever since they started showing them 10+ years ago.  I was always struck by the annoyance level of Mr. Wentworth's voice.  Why don't they pay someone else to do these commercials?  Why would this asshat do his own commercials with that annoying voice?  "I'm JG Wentworth and I sound like some old a-hole's butler."

Each time I see this stupid ad, all I can think is, "would you really trust your $$$ to a company called J. G. Went-Worth?" I sit there and imagine that the J.G. stands for "Just Gone," and my "worth" has "went" for lack of better grammar.

Reviving a really old thread here, but this commercial is still annoying years later.

Oh, and that's not Orson Bean driving the bus.
