Hahaha, no. I read an article with her featured in SA Woman a few years ago.

I was left scratching my head as to what qualified her to be promoted to VP just 2 years out of Grad School.

Well, she is an Ancira of course, it is the family business.

I can only assume there were other exemplary employees with an equivalent education and further experience than her.

Hey, nobody *has* to struggle in life to be admirable, it's the blatantly obvious promotions and titles that are given out based on family name that is obnoxious. At least IMO.

And seeing poorly dressed people on TV commericals leaves me scratching my head too - hence the remark on the outfit and placement of body parts. I mean not only do you have mirror and a crew, but a playback function...someone's gotta tell ya the truth.

that very soft spoken female attorney always spooks me for some reason. I definitely would not trust her at all.

*whispering* "I'm Marynell Maloney...... call me."


Yall are cracking me up over here . I had forgotten about most of these. My husband is one of those who switches between shows when commercials are on, so I don't see too many.

Anytime that I see a lawyer or doctor advertise on TV, it sort of freaks me out. Why do you have to advertise on TV if you are so good at your job? I don't know, it just makes me wonder...

HAHAHA!! I make fun of that one all the time. I always tell my fiance why didn't they have her do it over where she doesn't sound like a robot. It makes her seem like she's just there because daddy is. Was it bring your daughter to work day?

All them Wayne Wright commericals.

"You deserve respect and justice....so we demand it......after we take our 70%"

My favs are the ones in Spanish and the ones in English where the client clearly is struggling to actually speak English.

"Ehhhh I wenta into ehh premature labor twiiiiice."

I think it was a Jim Adler commercial awhile back where one of the people actually said "You're driving and some SOUTHSIDER runs a red light slamming right into you!" That was HIGHlarious!!!!
