1-800-Got Nightmares

There’s this commercial that comes on for 1-800-Got Junk that says something about “Call 1-800-Got Junk. We’ll be there before you hang up the phone.” If I could link to it, I would, but it’s not anywhere I can find. Every time I see it, I can’t help but think of the bit called “No Anchovies please.”

Does anybody else think that? Anybody? No? Just me?

Also, it says “When a clean, shiny truck pulls up in front of your house, things are about to get happy.” Are we sure? I hope it came from the junk people.

  1. I’ve always thought the same thing. You’d better hope it’s the right shiny truck, buddy.

    And I don’t want to be that guy, but how is we’ll be there before you hang up the phone not false advertising? It’s a blatant lie.

    1. Unless they’re “driving past your house right now!” How creepy is that? And why are they driving past my house and know it’s mine? How junky is my yard that they thought “Gee that’s a lot of junk. How long until they call?”

      1. Only way they know it’s your house is if the poor guy driving the truck also has to answer the phones and book the appointments at the same time and you just happened to give him your address. These are some bad commercials.  And none of this even gets to some of those people who start pointing and then sound like they’re having an episode of some kind.
