Confused....uh, WHAAAAAT?! Can't stand this commercial.
1.) What kind of dork drives slow enough so a riding mower can hug the rear bumper?
2.) The guy on the riding mower clearly appears mentally-deranged - consider using that toy called a "phone" and punching in '911'?
3.) What if the wife is dumb and keeps asking "o.k.! I got the '911'-part - what is the rest of the phone number?!"?  Do you stop and shoot the psycho on the lawn mower (which is clearly a 'deadly weapon') and then consider the wife?
4.) Take a non-violent stance and simply throw the car into reverse and floor the gas pedal?

Actually thought it was funny, before they ruined it with the "where's my money?" bit at the end.

I thought the same thing. The reason they were being followed by the angry guy on a lawnmower was established with: "Honey did you pay the lawn guy"? The target audience seems to be small business owners. Where's my money? IMHO This is redundant and insulting the intelligence of the target audience.

They had a good funny mini-horror thing going on, complete with the music and guy with a deranged face. That line just completely takes us out of it by making him a regular joe.

...............
More or less. Friend of mine who owns a small paving company said they charge 2.5% of the transaction amount.
