The Most Effective Television Marketing Campaign Ever

by Kevin Delaney

OK, so maybe it’s a tad melodramatic. But man, as soon as I saw this, I wanted to pick up the phone and dial!

Sadly, not only is the number blocked and bleeped, it was probably disconnected years ago. Too bad — we shall never know what made those men, women and children under the age of 18 with their parent’s permission weep so compellingly.

Perhaps an automated voice came on the line and reminded the listener of how pathetic it is to be up all night watching cable TV and calling 1-900 numbers.

*sob* This is the best *sniffle* and LAST *sniffle* acting job I could get
