    Joel Matlin, who was at the home security company's helm since its inception in 1988 and often the voice and face of AlarmForce in ad campaigns, claims he was dismissed without cause or notice, which goes against the terms of his contract.

    He's also asking for punitive and aggravated damages because of the way the firing was handled.

    "The bad faith manner of termination above has caused Joel to suffer additional mental distress, damage to his reputation, and aggravated damages beyond his contractual damages for wrongful dismissal," the statement of claim says.
    The new commercials are the exact same script as the one he used with a different voice. What a bunch of amateurs.

    My most hated commercials are the ones you see on billboards, print, tv, radio, sponsorships, on clothing and vehicles. Otherwise I'm pretty good with them :D

    I think The Clutcher would agree, when it comes to most-loved commercials, "Where's the Beef?" is the gold standard.

    I'm a big fan of that commercial with the kid who is dressed as a pirate, and then he sees the old man with the eye patch in the grocery store.

    Most hated......pretty much any Subway commercial.

    I always used to get the pizza sub, which was $5, and now I've gone full-woman and always get a veggie sub. The "meat" at Subway has finally disgusted me enough that I just don't want it anymore.
