In Honor of President't Day: I Hate This Commercial!

TD Bank has this commercial where Regis and Kelly interview Abraham Lincoln:

The premise of this ad is that Lincoln is peeved because the penny, which features his face, is not worth anything anymore. Fair enough premise. TD Bank has a free change counting machine where you can trade your change in for dollars. At this point, Abe gets all peeved because George Washington is on the dollar and "it always comes back to George."

Here's why I hate this ad: ABRAHAM LINCOLN IS ON THE $5 BILL!

I get the fact that Lincoln would complain about the penny having no value now. But having him whine about George and the dollar bill is just plain dumb, since he's on a more valuable bill.

Of course, I do realize that getting annoyed about the logic behind a commercial where Regis and Kelly are interviewing Abraham Lincoln is as illogical as the ad itself. But I don't care.

Is it too much to ask for a little intelligence in the world? A little logic? A little thought?

What's the lesson from this? Don't be stupid. That's it. Simple lesson this post:

Don't. Be. Stupid.
