Unintentionally Funny Local Commercial: The Slomin’s Shield

When you turn on any regional network, you’re bound to see plenty of local commercials.  Due to the small budget many of these companies have, these commercials are usually pretty awful.  Whether it’s poor acting or ridiculous dialogue, these commercials can be so bad, they are actually comical.  In a new LWB feature, I’ll be mocking some local commercials.

Today’s local commercial is the Slomin’s Shield.  The Slomin’s Shield sells home security systems and has a reputation for cheesy commercials.  This recent number tops the list.

There are three “vignettes” in this commercial, with each showing what life is like without the Slomin Shield and what it’s like with it.  It is a trifecta of horrendous acting.  I’ve seen school plays with better acting than this.  Take a look and see for yourself.

**Editor’s Note (5/2/11): Apparently the full version of this commercial was removed. Amazingly, Slomins also contacted me and told me to remove their logo, which I did (maybe this means my site is finally getting big). But I did find a shorter version of the commercial on youtube.**

I need your help for this feature. If you see a local commercial in your area that you think is unintentionally funny, please email me the link here.

    I thought Jared Allen made enough money playing football.

    This is a great idea and great addition to your blog, I love it. Looks like the Slomin Shield will take care of most of life’s problems, I don’t know how I’m existing without it.

    The comercial with the woman in bed is by far the worst one I have seen. I make fun of it everytime its on. Her and the husband may be two of the dumbest people alive. I mean you hear a noise in your house but dont worry you have the slomen sheild so go back to bed. Honestly I dont care if I have a fucking Ninja standing guard at my bedroom door, If I hear a noise in my home im getting up to see what the hell it is.

    If you want a funny commercial, you should see the ones for all those late night chat lines like Quest, where all the girls are really good looking and dressed like they’re going to a club, and the guy on the other end always wants to “meet for coffee.” They’re so hilarious.

    I think I’ve seen those. They are funny. Have you ever seen the one with Evangeline Lilly from Lost? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZ6hIEqKR7A

    Haha…I knew she did a phone sex ad but I’d never seen it. Her acting in that ad is better than her acting on the show.
