Musings of the Chronologically Challenged™ Fourth Generation
Monday, June 30, 2003
After I saw James Carville's anemic legs in an Infone commercial on tv, I couldn't help myself. I sent Infone the following email:
Subject: James Carville? Pu-Leeeeze!
Bad choice for your representative. Do you have any idea how many people in the USA would like to see him impaled on a utility pole?
Thank you for your feedback about Infone and our commercials involving Mr. Carville. We understand your concerns and appreciate your feedback and taking the time to write us. I have forwarded your comments to our Marketing Department
Mr Carville is not a spokesman for infone, he is one of several celebrities we are using. We have several commercials which feature celebrities and non-celebrities. Today, we have a commercial which features Jesse Ventura, former governor of Minnesota in addition to James Carville. In addition, there are several other ads which feature non-celebrities ('Animal Control', 'Anniversary', and 'Wife's Birthday').
I have forwarded your feedback to our marketing teams. If you should require further information or have additional questions, please feel free to contact us at our web site (www.infone.com) or simply dial 1-888-411-1111.

[Well, I was certainly fooled. I could have sworn Carville really was speaking for Infone, since he (or at least his legs) appeared in their commercial with his voice.]
