Ugh! Words cannot describe my hate for this squealing lady.

I personally believe that reverse morgauges are a scam but that's beside the point, this commercial would've even be 90% as bad as it is if that stupid lady in the beginning didn't squeal like a stuck pig. She come on a lot and every time she does, I just feel that dentist drill to my teeth again.

My problem with this is the same as my problem with any wealthy celebrity hawking stuff to elderly people who are more susceptible to one of there favorite old TV stars are "talking" to them.

It really p*ssed me off when Henry Winkler did one; I thought he had more integrity than that. As I said then, it's not like the guy (Winkler) needs the money, he's had a renaissance in his career.
A new study finds that people who are chipper & happy live longer. Which is surprising because people who aren't chipper & happy want to kill people who are always chipper & happy. David Letterman

You definitely have a good point there. They don't go and tell you exact what you're getting into on the commercial and since seniors can sometimes be a little more gullible than younger folks, it'll be easier to sucker them into something they really don't want. And like you said with their favorite celebs endorsing it is even worse. It's kind of like back in the 50s when people would start smoking because their favorite celebs did it on screen.

Scary to think this vegetable stood a chance of becoming president one day not so long ago.
