I'm not bothering to post a video, they play this s**ty ad every 10 minutes on every channel, so I'm sure everyone has seen it. Bill Cowher should be f**king ashamed for participating in this horses**t.

I've been looking for this video since the first time I saw it. Can't stand it.
But I think he might be a psychic rather than a physic (I make this kind of mistake all the time)

TWC videos are kinda hard to find, and I think I've seen a total of 3 different versions of this one. All suck, just to varying degrees. 1) the psychic thing has been done to death 2) now that all the Christmas ones are out of season, this is the only one they have left... probably due to poor planning, and it runs over and over and over and... you get the point, and 3) they had to have found the shiniest tool in the whole box to play the psychic. One with the kind of face that makes your fist ball up involuntarily.

Please, TWC, for the love of all that is anything, come up with a few new spots. It's even OK if they have Bill Cowher in them, just enough of this one already.
Hmm... a world without children. Future generations will thank us.

I never even really try to find these videos, to be honest. If I help them get YouTube hits then the agencies that make the ads assume they're popular and that encourages those s**thead ad agencies to make more s**tty commercials. Think about it, by posting videos of these ads we're doing more harm than good, even if we totally bury them here.

Yes, psychic, fixed it. You'd think a guy that read at a college level when he was in 3rd grade (in 1990) would know how to spell, but for some reason I suck. I was always a math guy anyway, and I'm a cook, not an English professor.

By not posting the commercial, you just end up making the rest of us look for it.  Then we end up looking at Time-Warner commercials, anyway.

I don't think I've ever seen a Time-Warner commercial.  Certainly not the ones I saw while looking for this one.

Do you have Time Warner? Because I never saw any Time Warner ad (I remember there was a thread about another commercial with Bill Cowher a couple months ago that I never actually saw on TV) until I switched over to them. That's the most infuriating thing about this ad: STOP PUSHING ADS FOR PRODUCTS I'M ALREADY BUYING DOWN MY THROAT! I had the same problem with DirecTV.

^  I see it's available somewhere in California, but not in my area.  No reason to air their commercials here.

If you're so "psychic" and know all that stuff already, why waste the salespeople's time by doing their spiel for them?

This dickwad makes me want to shove his psychic ass into a wood chipper. Bet he didn't know I was thinking about THAT, did he? Angry

It's just lazy advertising. Hey how can we get away with making an ad where all we do is LIST FEATURES LAZILY? I know, let's have a psychic say them out loud....for no apparent reason.

The psychic's facial features smack of overacting. Dude, stop trying so hard.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

They probably think the psychic's overacting makes up for Coach Wooden's non-acting. He's about the most scruffy, inanimate object on tv today.

Yes, I know his name is not really wooden.

This campaign just won't die. I'm still seeing ads with this annoying "psychic" guy in them. Lots of variations, but all related to whatever current promotion they're running (which of course is never available to existing subscribers).
