I've just seen an All State Insurance ad.

I'm watching the Man U West Brom match on ESPN, and there's a bloke in the ad pretending to be a Chirstmas tree. The ad shows the bloke on the roof of the car as a family takes him home from the farm. And a little legend pops up on the screen saying, "demonstration only, do not attempt".

*shakes head*

Are you sure it wasn't there during the game?

It's sort of like when someone says the Brits have no sense of humor after watching Benny Hill.

There's a very specific reason for that particular disclaimer:
