Would you buy lunch from a roach coach operated by a man with red scaly scabs all over his exposed forearms? I bloody well wouldn't but it seems like the guy in the Humira commercial has given the middle finder to his local Health Department and is serving food despite having more scales on his arm than a 40lb striped bass. What's more, people are buying his food.

The ad features a young woman who is handed her burrito (or whatever) and catches sight of the offending extremity. Rather than turning the guy in to the local authorities, she takes the food and walks away. The poor man is left somewhat embarrassed by the non-reaction. Here's a tip: wear long sleeves if you don't want your customers to see your skin diseases on display.

Lastly, a good word for the psoriasis society's new fundraising idea: they're selling scratchcards.

JESUS MISERYGUTS - are you trying to get me fired??? AND you owe me a water since I just spit out a mouthful when I burst out laughing. Maybe a new keyboard...
 
I actually almost felt sorry for the guy when the lunch gal keeps her gaze on his scales just a beat too long. Was she trying to telepathetically tell him to acknowledge his own blotches? As if the guy wasn't aware of his personal Scarlet letters???
 
And don't knock the so-called "Roach Coach"  - that was no weenie wagon. I bet that was one of the more upSCALE food carts, albeit served with a scab.

IDK why they bother with those long-ass, confusing, scientific names. Nobody is going to remember them anyway!

I have to mute this commercial every time it's on. Why the need to tack "adalimumab" onto the end of the sentence? Just say Humira & move on with it. They need to realize just exactly how effing stupid their commercials sound. Just as stupid as Jamie Lee Curtis talking about "bifidus regularis" in Activia commercials.

Reminds me of the Seinfeld bit where he talks about companies making up words to try to dupe the customer into thinking they're getting something really good:
 
AD:  "Certs - now with an extra drop of retsin!"
 
CUSTOMER:  "Oh, finally, we're getting some more retsin!!"
If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn't be called research, would it? -Albert Einstein
