Optimum Pastel Commercials

So what's everyones opinion on the new hoopla commercials that Optimums been running recently? I'm a fan, they seem to be somewhat creative while being simple. I particularly like the commercial where they make fun of other peoples commercials by throwing all the cheesy commercial junk along with the kitchen sink in!

Assuming he's referring to the re-branding with the new colors and new commercials Optimum has been running with the re-brand.

Precisely the commercials all use pastel colors.. Versus the white commercials with the guy talking while wandering around a empty white room.

How can you not like an ad that has Alf in it?

I think it's hysterically funny. The closing lines during the cheer leading say it all. We provide TV, telephone, and Internet. That's what you get. Now, relax and get on with life. It is a very funny response to the FIOS "life-changing" ads. And, Alf definitely adds to it, sitting in a make-up chair.

I hate commercials. Too many Optimum and stupid car and insurance commercials. I think the commercials will soon use up more time then the shows. Do you have a youtube link?

I don't mind the new optimum ones but I hate almost all the insurance commercials...

These commercials look super clear and sharp on Verizon Fios, but at my moms house on Optimum not so much. What gives?

Are you sure you're watching it in HD? Lot os people think they are watching something in HD but aren't because either their TV/box isn't configured properly or they are not on an HD channel. I have Cablevision and everything looks pretty crisp to me.

Yup, looks pretty good to me on Cablevision as well. I have a very good TV, and the picture is excellent.

While the speed difference on-line, with FIOS may, at least, seem important to people who do a lot of gaming, the quality of the TV picture would be pretty non-existent.

The very point of this ad, actually
