Here’s one for your entertaining recurring segment. This is a pest control ad that only seems to air on Comcast Detroit Cable as none of my suburban friends ever get to see it. Reason enough to endure Detroit’s high taxes and incompetent City Council!

His current ad is equally head-scratching as it’s just him dancing to Kool Moe Dee’s “I Go To Work” and doesn’t even mention pest control. It just has his phone number. If you call perhaps he just comes over and stomps all the bugs and rodents to music or he assumes he’s a household name now.

This may be the greatest thing we’ve ever seen. Please, someone send in the new one.
