    I've been searching for several years for this one St. Jude's commercial featuring Jennifer Aniston that I saw maybe twice before they pulled it, but it's no where to be found on youtube or anywhere else I can think of. It went something like:

    Child: I hit my head on the trampoline and started getting headaches so my parents took me to the doctor.
    Jennifer Aniston: But it wasn't the trampoline was it? (turns to camera) It was a brain tumor.

    And I immediately burst into laughter.

    What a weird commercial!
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    Here's a bit of a mind blower...

    Does this still frame trigger your memory? It's the guy from "It's Always Sunny".

    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    Well, I looked into it a little more and it sorta makes sense now. freecreditreport.com itself is indeed a scam, but it's a subsidiary of Experian, so I guess since a reputable company came up with something that should be disreputable, they're able to get all this ad time for it. So that's pretty disgusting- they make a shitload of one-time revenue by scamming people with this thing, and then they continue making money even after people realize it's a scam because they're fucking Experian.

    Free Credit Report has an annual advertising budget of 72 fucking million dollars. Dear fucking holy balls.
    "LIVE OR DIE, MAN??"

    "DIE!!!!!"

    "WRONG! HOOOONK!"

    No one is saying otherwise. No one thinks you're endorsing the company or anything. This is just the way the conversation progressed.

    Sure does (and to be honest actually I don't have the slightest idea).
