This commercial features a monotone voice talking about Medical Alert. A wearable button that you push to call 911. This commercial was way too long. The PowerPoint graphics and monotone voice just puts me to sleep. At the end the guy says the number not once, not twice, but THREE damn times. I hope I never see it again!
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

I always catch myself talking to the TV at the end saying "What was that number again"
Did you ever think you were done, but had wipe all over again?

This is in the old (surprise) style of lower-budget ads I grew up with watching TV with an antenna. They say the phone number a million damn times to drill it into your head. The ad you're talking about is probably one step up from one of those injury lawyer ads where it's just a simple one-frame layout and a loud voiceover.

Yeah, these are really bad and very long. There is one made by Philips called the "Lifeline" that seems to go on forever. Keep mentioning "Go" over and over.

Some medical necklace with GPS, WIFI technology, detects falls, etc.

One section of this ad of an old guy in the middle of nowhere, in some swampland fishing. I kind of wonder if he keels over will this device detect his fall into the soft mushy ground - face under water (good luck with that!) ---- If it actually reads anything at all..do these devices hold up being underwater for a long period of time? That part seems like BS to me. But "he's on the 'go,' feels confident" So that's good.
