Where have you gone Sabine Ehrenfeld?
There was a time, not too long ago, when sweet, sweet Sabine filled Overstock.com commercials with so much raw sexuality that what she was selling didn't matter … which is the way it should be, right?
Sex sells, pure and simple. In fact, more often than not, the sex seems to matter more than the actual product.
But now Sabine is gone. Vanished. Out of my apathetic couch potato life forever.
Worst of all, Sabine has been replaced in the Overstock.com commercials by some horrible, sappy, twangy country music duo called Joey + Rory. What gives?
According to Overstock.com "this husband and wife singing duo from Tennessee, featured in our new 'At Home With The O' campaign, are a true one-of-a-kind pair. Their honest and humble approach to life and love is evident in everything they do. We are proud to welcome Joey and Rory to the Overstock family and honored to be a new part of theirs."
As the saying goes, I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.
You can watch the agonizingly annoying Joey + Rory commercials at http://www.overstock.com/13978/static.html.
According to an Associated Press article Toyota's "Saved by Zero" TV commercial is driving viewers up the wall (http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5gLHlYbnhuANpXVn0z3MntM1retcAD948UTAO0) but for my money Joey + Rory are far more unbearable.
Every time that damn Joey + Rory Overstock.com comes on the I just want to pull an Elvis and shoot the TV with my foam dart shotgun (That's right, I have a foam dart shotgun).
Come back to us Sabine, we need you.
