Yes it was.
Yes.

Pelting an effeminate-walking man with Snickers and telling him to "get some nuts" is SO funny.
I thought it was hilarious.

Re: Mr T is desperate for cash/sunk to a new low

Mr. T is a legend, and a really great guy. He's not the greatest actor, but he has a wonderful charisma and personality, and spent a lot of his time trying to help children and other similar social projects. a class act.

as for the snickers commercial, I thought it was great, and didn't make the gay-bashing connection until it was pointed out to me. I did not for an instant consider that the guy in the commercial was gay.

the infomercial is a shame. Mr. T deserves better. It's nice that he's still working though, and he has a good fan base.

I take it such crude humor is far too low-brow for someone of high intellect like yourself?

"Maybe Mr. T's pretty handy with computers! Did that occur to you Mr. Condescending Director!? "

Oh, and this one even though it's not Mr. T.

Not a commercial or infomercial, but this is my favorite.

Mr. T's actually one of those guys that the lamer the gig, the cooler it is. Shatner falls into the same category. When they do good stuff it's good. When they do bad stuff it's awesome!

Re: Mr T is desperate for cash/sunk to a new low

The thing I want to know is this -

Where do they find people who want to be in the audience of an info commercial? I mean, I have plenty of free time on hands but even I wouldn't waste my time like that.

I'm reminded of when Adam West decided to give up The Cowl for public appearances. Seems some people at an event in Indiana wanted to shoot him out of a cannon...
