    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes an adequate point about what is known as 'Buyers Remorse'.
    Cons: Leaves me wishing the creators could have shown 'Buyers Remorse' in a more positive light.

    Rated Show
    Pros: The translation from wounded pride to a wounded body will be funny to most viewers
    Cons: The physical pain seems too over the top.

    Summary: My interpretation of the commercial is that it hurts you to find out you've paid too much for a product. I've had the experience of sitting next to someone on an airplane who just revels in telling me they paid only $100.00 for a ticket I paid $500.00 ... read more
