At The Commercials: Eff you Cox, and your bundlese
So, Cox Communications has a series of commercials for their "bundle", which is a group rate for their cable, Internet and telephone services. Whatever - I've had it before, when I was in college, and it really wasn't that much of a savings. But every media company seemingly has that sort of package available to entice customers who just want one bill for all three services.
However, other media companies do not these weird, horrible commercials featuring "bundlese." It seems to be a fake language where everything rhymes with bundle or schundle or whatever. Also, because I have Cox Cable, Cox feels the need to advertise their own god damn services constantly. What gives???
This commercial isn't even the worst one, it's just the only one I could find on YouTube. The worst one has a skanky-looking brunette climbing over her brother's lap, trying to seduce him while they're both talking bundlese. I think it's meant to be humorous, but it's only funny in the MST3K Hobgoblins "this is so awful and inappropriate" funny way.
