Is it just me, or does the Ford truck commercial where the guy is building the fence drive anyone else crazy? I don't know much about building a fence, but I do know that you do not drive wooden posts with a sledge hammer, you don't "wrap" the barbed wire around the post, and you never build a barbed wire fence without gloves. It gives Ford trucks a bad name to think that someone who is supposedly so "tough" builds a fence in such an unorthodox way. He might be better off watching movies.
It's not just you. I saw the movie they are talking about, and as my wife will testify, I'm no romantic, but I thought the movie was cute and I enjoyed it (I watch about three movies a year, I saw that one because they showed it on a coast to coast flight).
The movie issue didn't get my attention, but like you: when I saw the guy putting up the post, I thought, is that guy nuts!!? My second thought was he might as well not see the movie, if he doesn't understand how to put up a fence, he won't understand "You've Got Mail". They should put a disclaimer at the bottom: "Actor portrayal, not a real Ford Truck owner, and not a ranch hand"

It's just transporation
well first of all, remember it's just a commercial. anyone who can drive a fence post into the ground with a sledge and hand barbed wire without gloves is tough!?
secondly, all commercials, with the exception of some of the beer commercials, drive me nuts. they all seem as if there made on a third grade level. the ones that use old has-been stars, such as mr t, allysa milano, terry bradshaw for collect calls and that 10 10 220, these commercials have got to be the worst i've ever seen. what are these people thinking about??????
How about the commercial for Craftsman tools? The guy is driving a pickup through the woods, comes upon a rivine, then builds a complete nice bridge to drive across? Yeh, we all drive with a complete tool box and all power tools known to man....

Anyone heard the radio spots for the Silverado HD? They're retarded. They promise insane stuff! They tell a guy who is a loser and can't get a date that if he gets a Silverado HD, models'll be crawlin all over him! They say that you can pull up a tree stump that nobody's ever been able to pull. Y'all, I've known of 4wd tractors failing at pullin stumps. A wimpy bowtie ain't gonna do the trick. GM's gonna have a lot of pissed off customers when they realize their truck won't get em women or be able to pull up a carrot.
Not only does he put the fence between him and his truck, he unloads all his materials in one spot! Duh! Not much point in having a truck if you're going to dump everything at once, then lug to every post-hole.
Actually I thought those GM radio commercial were slightly annoying but slightly amussing. At least they know how to do thr job their attempting.(not driving a wooden post in with hammer, not unloading materials on the far side of the truck, with the fence between him and the truck...) What I hate is when you see things that say you CAN fit 4 people in a mustang type car. If the people in forn have any height at all(more than 5'0) you won't have any leg room at all.
