Weird commercials: Mister Hats

We've got this store in Memphis called Mister Hats. The commercials come on early in the morning or very late at night.

Anyway, the guy who owns the shop straddles a line between creepy and disaffecting. I can't decide. This video is the only one I could find on YouTube that features the owner (the kind that air every morning). In it, the guy's not too bad. The one's that have been airing lately are far more odd.

I find this to be completely sickening. How is an honest businessman advertising creepy? For your information, he advertises at this time because many of his customers work grave yard shifts and this is when they can see them. For those of you who are obviously not intelligent enough, it is called marketing. Mister Hats has been around for over 20 years and a well run, honest family business. Maybe if you would stop criticizing other people who are making an honest living and doing it well, you could make something of your self too. Talk about uselessness. Get a life.

No offense, but he's neither creepy or disaffecting. He's a 80 year old man who has worked hard his whole life trying to maintain his business. Judge people favorably and you will be too. That's his great-grandson, his pride and joy. I hope you are able to one day take pride in your own progeny.
PS- What other commercials are you talking about. Maybe you have him and someone else confused because this is the only commercial on now.
