Forget which company- Orkin? Whatever, I have to admit these are kinda clever.
Basically, a giant roach rings the bell and tries to talk his way (in a suspiciously smooth but creepy voice) into the house. "Pizza delivery......" it'll say, or, "My car broke down......and I.... need to use your phone........I just wanna call my brother-in-law...."
Usually, as the homeowner starts to get a funny feeling LOL SOMEthing might be amiss, the roach continues trying to talk its way inside, looking over its shoulder as the Orkin van pulls up.
I'm sure this is a hated ad based on the giant scary bugs........but I dunno, it just works IMO. It's silly in a well-written kinda way, and scary w/o creeping people out the easy way (like the old ad with the bug crawling over the screen during a mock commercial..... {{{shudder!!}}}
