Benjamin Franklin: Patriot, Statesman, Creepy TV Pitchman.

Is anyone else creeped out by those DirecTV commercials where people start turning into Ben Franklin?

"They're worth $100."


Weird, weird, weird. Especially the Lady Bens. Shudder.

Ben apparently also has some sort of stake in a national plumbing consortium. What, he's a busy guy! (Maybe they took "a small leak can sink a great ship" very literally?)

(That one's more amusing than it is creepy, though.)
