Great Moments In Commercial History: Vern Fonk Insurance


What the heck? Our submitter describes Vern Fonk’s commercials as “Hunter S. Thompson-on-mescaline-esque crazy,” and he appears to be correct. Another submitter laments that he can’t seem to find his “favorite” Vern Fonk commercial, but points us to http://www.vernfonk.com. Update: Users reported that this site has a worm. Might be best to stay away for now.

This guy scares us, who would buy insurance from someone who pronounces Christmas “Christ Mas?”
