What the hell??  I caught this gem when I was eating a sandwich at a local Firehouse shop.  Made the sandwich less appetizing.

Me too. I just saw it twice in the last half hour. This commercial, and another in Ally Bank's "no surprises" line of garbage.

*sigh* just when you think commercials can't get more idiotic. (what madness is this?! no facepalm emoticon?) *facepalm* oh well, give it some time and maybe this will appear on trutv after a while, the people will REALLY know how bad it is.

Why is it all these advertisers feel the need to have screaming (be it animal or human) in the commercials? Aren't they being obnoxious enough without it?
I do not think much, I do not think often, but when I do think, I think about sex!!

You know what would be hysterical?
Keep the goat meme, but have it come from Flo's mouth.

...maybe tie on some fake goat ears for effect.

I think you mean Discover not Ally they replaced the family surprising him for his birthday with a yelling goat. Yeah pretty stupid.

I like this commercial not because I'm a sick puppy but, because I guess I am a sick puppy. When we were kids I called my sister a dairy goat. Of course our beloved mom took her hand to my bottom. But the dairy goat moniker stuck. Seems like there's a run of goats in commercials. A silver lining in an otherwise cloud of the usual hipster and hip hop ghetto crap. Only thing creepy is seeing the peanut butter ooze out of the machines looks like loose turds on steroids. If you remember the Wonder Years, I was my sister's "Wayne." I always have and still love my sister very much but the Wayne character took some cues from my playbook.
I approve this message.

It's like they don't even f*cking try. Also, how can this commercial have over 900 "thumbs up" on Youtube and only about 30 "thumbs down?" Are the masses really that easy to please?

I think the goats are funny...on their own. When adholes find another trend to lock onto, you know its days are numbered before this goes the way of Gangnam Style and "Epic Fail".

Just wait until Allstate uses it. They'll alternate between it using the deep voice and the scream.

Those ad exec's just aren't using their imagination.

Picture this:
"Six callers ahead of us Jimmy", and then grandma bleats like a goat.
