Fuuuuck, that almost makes me want to get rid of Perry Moppins, Able Seaman. (He picks up dog hair so I don't have to!)

Of special note, the way she pronounces the words "food", "stomach", and the all-time worst: "culprit".
I wish to add her pronunciation of the word "almonds" to the list.

I see the iRobot website has a link to customize your vacuum. You can buy vinyl stickers, like an Xbox or something. How horrible, you wouldn't do that with a Hoover.
I did customize my robot vacuum but I used a Sharpie

You'd think Annie Murphy saying "Welcome to my vagina." would be kinda hot, but instead it's just bizarre and creepy.

I have a suspicion that was a web-only commercial, because networks won't carry "controversial" ads, which means contraceptives among other things. Small local TV stations that are hurting for ad revenue will, same for cable networks not having a large viewing audience. Which, again, not very many people will see them.

I can imagine a similar conversation for a similar later-used service:
"Good Morning, WFAA Dallas-Fort Worth's, NBC TV Channel 8, how may I direct your call?"
"I'd like your Advertising Department."
"Please hold."
"Advertising and media sales."
"Hi, I'm with Dr. Stan, the Clinician, we'd like to run ads for our medical clinics in Oklahoma."
"Okay, what services do you offer?"
"We're offering inexpensive abortions for women who can't get them in Texas after that 'sue anyone involved in performing an abortion, including Uber drivers, win $10,000' law. Hello? Hello?"
"You're motorin', what's your price for flight, when finding Mr. Right?"

One of the side effects is "kidney infection." I would like to see Annie Murphy do a "Welcome to my kidneys" commercial where it's just her plotting the carving-out of her vagina.
