Truth in Advertising

[Willford Brimley appears on TV advertising for the Diabetes]

Worker #3116: Oh my God, he's still alive?
McCullen: No, he's dead.
Worker #3116: I can't believe they're still using these commercials.
McCullen: Why?
Worker #3116: You don't use dead people in commercials, especially not for diabetes. You don't want to associate preventative medicine with someone who died from disease.
McCullen: They use dead people in commercials all the time.
Worker #3116: No they don't.
McCullen: What are you talking about? Sure they do.

[McCullen changes the channel.]

McCullen: See. Right there.
Worker #3116: ...
McCullen: She's dead.
Worker #3116: ...
McCullen: ...
Worker #3116: Maya Angelou is not dead.
McCullen: Of course she is. You're an idiot.

Wilford Brimley, RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE!
