Okay, I didn't really notice it until I started paying attention but Nationwide has this annoying ass game show angle to their latest commercial. The first couple times I saw this I was actually duped into thinking it was a game show (mostly because it runs on Nick at Nite and they have real game show segments). I believe Comcast or some other cable provider had a gameshow angle to one of their commercial awhile ago. Seems to be a lame way to promote their service.

I think there may be another thread on this one, but yeah, it's dumb, stupid, and annoying.

Maybe you don't understand the mind of ad execs:

Cool: We need a new ad.
Evil%20Smile: Yeah, let's base it on something popular.
Cool: Hmmm, what's popular?
Evil%20Smile: Well, 24 is popular.
Cool: Nah it's been done before. How about Lost?
Evil%20Smile: I don't even understand Lost, let alone want to put it in a commercial.
Cool: How about game shows? They're popular.
Evil%20Smile: Gameshows? BRILLIANT!
