Really irritating Time Warner Cable commercial

Time Warner "furniture" commercial

The wife is smiling, but full of contempt for her husband - he bought a whole set of furniture because it was cheaper, but they only needed one piece (I assume that he also blew the rent money on Magic Beans).

Then the One Truly Good Man - the Time Warner Guy - steps out from behind the wall to assist this damsel in distress in the full castigation of her husband. He explains that you can buy what you need at Time Warner - and you don't have to buy it in a set to save money. Even stupid (the husband) finally gets it.

Picture being married to that woman.


Right.  Because in most marriages it's typically the man who wants to spend lots of money on new furniture they don't need while the wife is the voice of reason speaking against new furniture.  Women also like small houses, old cars and plain shoes. 
"To such females, womanhood is more sacrosanct by a thousand times than the Virgin Mary to popes--and motherhood, that degree raised to astronomic power. They have eaten the legend about themselves and believe it; they live it; they require fealty of us all." -- Philip Wylie, Generation of Vipers


How odd.
Time Warner Cable USED to be one of the "bundling" with "crap you don't want, but had to pay for" champions.
I wonder how many clients (like me) it took, saying "You know, just cancel that WHOLE package" before
they figured out a woman, "sensible about such things", would be the ideal subject to tout (ie) No Need for Lifetime when you only wanted CSPAN2.
The passive aggressive, head shakes/nods/grins/ attention to "uniformed authority" bits annoy the crap out of me, EVERY 15 minutes the spot is on, even while I'm "aggressively" surfing what's left of my Time Warner Cable.
I wonder who ELSE Time Warner is "associated" with in "sharing" their meta data? (Look it up, 'cause you won't believe me)


This commercial, in contrast, is a bit amusing:

Hipsters are made fun of
