    Team 1200 just keeps setting new lows for awful commercials, newest is that Palmer recycling. ...

    "Hi I'm Fritz and I'm Sven and we're here to take your scrap !" Dammit!

    And I thought Joel Matlin, president of Alarrrrmforce was annoying.

    I don't think I've heard the Palmer Recycling radio commercial in awhile but I have to agree they were the nadir of the nadirific Team1200 radio commercials not to mention a copyright violation of the old SNL Hans and Franz sketch. I believe the voice-over and voices are done by Matt "Mr. Lisp" Kaunisviita. Google Palmer Recycling ... *sigh*.

    That's right. Lispy K, which is his street name, has managed to get a lot of voice work. Team1200 is YOUR home for amateurish, lispy sports talk.

    Yes, that commercial is horrid. I don't know how something can be called a "wing" when it is just a hunk of chicken meat coated with sauce and made to taste like a wing.

    Anyway, I could never stay mad at Boston Pizza for too long, as they are the home of the one and only perogie pizza.

    How about the Blackberry commercial with the girl who gets 1000 e-mails a day.



    Someone did the math already:

    Assuming a 12 hour day, which seems like the kind of hours someone receiving 1000 emails would put in, there are roughly 83 emails per hour. Meredith is receiving a whopping 1.38 emails per minute.
    Obviously to reply to 1000 emails, she has to respond with an email in less than a minute. Your eyes cannot leave the phone screen. Nope, not possible.

    No wonder Apple is making them irrelevant.

    She's too busy typing on her BB 12 hours a day to go out on dates though.
