Dan Tullis is supposed to be a forgettable actor or something.
 
Anybody good at splicing audio tracks?  This ad is just begging for it.
For example:
 
Hi, I'm Dan stale pee drinker Tullis, and I just called -- JOEL CLARK -- one of Select Quote's f**king annoying term life insurance agents.

Buying term life insurance is as easy as finding a toothless hooker. Let's say you take Chinese placebo antidepressants, or you smoke crack. All insurance companies are going to price that toothless hooker differently. Now we'll impartially shop all the companies we represent to get you the best rate return possible for after we kill you.

-Can you give me an example you douchebag?

Sure. I just got a 40 year old post-op transsexual man, on blood pressure herpes medication, a $500,000 policy with a highly rated insurance company. His her price? . . . Twenty dollars a month.

- Thanks F**k you Joel.

And the bad thing is is the same guy doing both voices, except joel clarks voice has been modified slightly, sounds like the just recorded joels voice over a telephone. If they cant afford two voice actors I dam sure am not doing business with them!

Is it my imagination, or has Select Quote Insurance really started jamming this down our throats about every two minutes around the clock with this triple damned ad, just within the last week or so? It ran too often before, but lately, it seems to be on almost continuous replay, and it has not got better with age.Angry

One of the worst radio ads ever conceived.  Select Quote will never have my business.  Couldn't they have at least used actors that sounded different?  The radio station I listen to played this during every commercial break so after hearing it the first 150 times I couldn't take it anymore so I started taking my headphones off when the commercials would start.

My first reaction:  Who the f***k is Dan Tullis??  Am I supposed to know you?  And then you called a second anonymous person - an insurance salesman who happens to have time to hang out on the phone with you and talk about his other clients.

I refuse to buy insurance from  a company who has a side business selling WOOLEN PARSLEY!  It sounded like woolen partially, but that wouldn't make sense so I figured it must be woolen parsley or maybe even woven parsley.  Anyway, the commercial sucks and it's on the radio every 5 minutes.

Absolutely. Would not deal with them either based just on this single issue alone.
(even if I was looking for insurance)
 
I listen strictly to radio all the time (at home, work ,ect).. Sure enough, we can count on Dan talking to his phone "friend" Joel through out our country. On every single station imaginable, 24/7. Ermm
 
 
For years I've been extremelly annoyed by Dan & Joel's chit-chat on radio. So back around February or March of this year; I decided to start sending SelectQuote a bunch of emails bugging the sh*t out of them. I knew it would be a waste of time. But hoped a glimmer of griping would finally sink in.
 
One good thing by coincidence is at least they've made one or two newer commericals since. Albeit still with Dan.

Almost forgot about Kevin.  He sounded sort of whipped..  like he had to talk to Dan against his own will.

Angry  I know this is an old topic, but it's an OLD radio commercial!  It is at LEAST 3 years old and they are STILL using it.  It'll disappear for a while and then come back (like it has been these 2 weeks) like 50 times a day on WTOP.  It's a very bad commercial, and I'm at my wit's end with it.  I wonder if that company is making any money off this ad, because they DEFINITELY wouldn't from me.

One of the local AM talk stations just played the commercial and the talk show host said after the break "Have you ever noticed that Dan Tullis sounds like the Cookie Monster?  [In Cookie Monster voice] Hi I'm Dan Tullis.  Can you give me an example?".  lol

Just found this message board today after Googling "Select Quote Joel Clark."

I never paid much attention to the details of the commercial, except that the two guys sound a lot alike, while wondering why the heck I'm supposed to know who the hell Dan Tullis is. If I had to put a picture to his face, my subconcious would place Dennis Haysbert, the guy who voiced the All State commercials ("Are You in Good Hands?")

Found this Wilkepedia page on Dan Tullis... not sure if it's legit or not...

I never heard this radio ad before it sounds stupid and annoying. I guess I'm counting my blessings here since I'll probably bash the radio with a hammer if it ever came on.LOLAngry

Hey, it's 2014 now and Dan Tullis is still calling JOEL CLARK every commercial break. And the worst thing about this thing, besides it being annoying? You totally forget what company they're advertising. I think they only say it once in passing. The point of any advertising should be to get you to remember the name of the business, right?

Dr. Dorian (I loved you in Scrubs BTW,) EXACTLY!

Actually, I forget what company it is because of the fact that it's the same guy calling himself.  Can't stop focusing on that ridiculous shortcut every time I hear it.  After hearing this ad for years, I still have trouble remembering the name.

Someone a long time ago on this thread asked if anyone is good at cutting/pasting.  That happens to be a real specialty of mine.  I used to make audiocollages all day long and get them played on oddball radio shows like the Subgenius Hour of Slack and Some Assembly Required podcast.  I know it's years later, but I may give it a shot soon.
