I think they should rename “Church and Chapel” to “Creepy and Creepier”

March 19th, 2006

Yes, discount viagra clinic Milwaukee-area funeral home Church and Chapel has the right to advertise on television.

But they aren’t doing themselves any favors.

Every time I see one of their creepy TV spots featuring a cadaverous Gordon Hinkley, I say to myself, “I wouldn’t be caught dead using that place.”

Unless they do viking funerals. I really want a viking funeral.

(Note to my “friends.” I want it AFTER I’m dead.)

    * Elliot Stearns is not a spokesman for Church and Chapel.

    Have you been to their web site, Aaron?

    They have a disclaimer next to Gordon’s picture that says:

    * Gordon Hinkley is the spokesperson for Church and Chapel and is not a funeral director

    I wonder if they had to do that because people kept asking Gordon for embalming advice.

    One of the tough things about advertising funeral services is getting testimonials from former clients.

    And I think Hinkly’s disclaimer should be something like “*Gordon Hinkley is not dead.”

    There was a recent rerun of Frasier where the characters had to sit in a whirlpool so Frasier could testify to how much he liked the hot tub as a spokesman for the store.

    I wonder if Hinkley’s ever spent some time in a coffin.

    LOL Casper. I think the disclaimer for Gordon being alive would be nice.
