Why Didn’t I Think of This?

11 Feb

While watching the E-Trade, “Jealous Girlfriend,” commercial that aired during the 2010 Super Bowl I experienced one of those moments.

Entertainment talk shows like Access Hollywood an Entertainment Tonight are found on most channels in some form or another.  I usually bypass these shows and go for a more hardcore, “I know someone that has actually had that happen to them,” approach: Maury.

This commercial reminds me of everything I love about the Maury show minus the shoe throwing and BLEEPS!  On almost every show Maury has a guest couple on stage and one person is cheating one the other.  The cheater denies everything and swears that the other person is “crazy.”

Now for the reveal…After their vehement denials the cheater is usually confronted with video tape evidence of their indiscretion in the ‘green room.’

The E-trade commercial has an even better take on the cheating situation.  The fact that the ‘couple’ are babies makes the commercial even more memorable.

The best thing about this commercial is that the ‘cheater’ is caught by his own webcam and that ‘milk-a-holic’ Lindsay is still there!  Classic Maury moment.  ( =

I have to give props to E-Trade; their commercials are usually well written and entertaining.  In fact, there are many viewer created spoofs that can be found on YouTube.

If you have some time and want to laugh I would suggest that you check them out.  Visit YouTube and search for ” e-trade commercials.”
