    I actually thought it was pretty funny.

    Most commercials / movies / sports etc. use voices which sound like a deep ol' male smoker.

    However ............. like most ads ........... if you hear them or watch them a number of times it can get pretty annoying.

    This particular Harvey's Ad, I think I've heard only once.

    Give me 3 more weeks.

    Whenever I hear that voice, all I can think of is the guy from Mysterious Skin with all the sores on his body...

    "Maaaake me happyyyyy..."

    (and anyone who's seen that film will know exactly how horrible that is).

    I haven't ate at harveys since that beauty of an advert

    "visit the butcher shop...just to browse"

    Are they trying to make people vegetarians?

    They make the only veggie burger I can stomach (I'm not a vegetarian), so you might be on to something there. Then again I'm almost positive that the veggie burger is so good because they don't clean their grills and I'm sure there's some meat juice up in there.

    the best radio ad ever was the Merryman's Funeral Home jingle on WKRP.....

    "There ain't no way to deny it / One day, you're gonna 'buy it'!"....

    "Call 1-800-2-6-7-2001......"

    This jingle is the reason I had to quit listening to any form of Toronto AM radio over a year ago.

    Is it still on?

    Totally hate that commercial - I turn down the radio when it's on. I haven't liked the whole campaign - the supposedly western-cowboy sounding guy talkin' about "THE GRILL"... gimme a break. Just tell me how much it is and how grilled it is and that's all I want to know - and don't tell it to me with your mouthful, asshat, and don't try to blow my speakers with your basso voice, neither.
