I've heard this commercial enough on my favorite talk radio station here in Denver to loathe it.  "Dynovite" is still at the top of the list, but this one deserves a special place in commercial hell.
  It starts out with some guy, his voice sounding anxious ( he's trying to play someone who is cold, but sounds like a guy who has been the unwilling "friend" in a bear den for a few months.)    "I'm getting a big hug from Smokey Bear because I drowned out my fire, stirred it, then drowned it out again, until it was CoOOOOOlllld".  Then, seeming almost embarrassed by his bad impersonation, or surprised himself at how weird he does sound, the announcer says, "Hah", switches to his own normal voice, "Go to smokey bear .com to learn more about forest fires".. 

Much more thought could've been put into this total garbage ad to make a valid impersonation of a ,"Cold guy".  He clearly sucks at it, is over the top, and I think he knows it....  I gave it the Nuke sign because it needs vaporized; but to prevent forest fires I will suggest it be a Neutron Bomb ( more radiation, less flame and heat, )  dropped on his figurative shack or house, in whose basement he resides.  Commercials I hate Staff, I beg of thee to Nuke this ad, now.

The sound is the guy getting hugged by smokey bear.  We hear the shortened version of it.  I just found the commercials on the Ad council website here, which actually make sense.  http://www.adcouncil.org/Our-Campaigns/Family-Community/Wildfire-Prevention

I still say Nuke this ad.

I want to see the Real Smokey BEAR come in and just decide he's done hugging, its time to remove the head with one swipe of paw...
