Have you seen this new Life Alert commercial? It’s terrifying.
This could be a clip from a horror movie or one of those true life crime shows on Investigation Discovery, maybe even a snuff film.
That poor Grandma is laying helpless at the bottom of the stairs while her oblivious mailman flirts with a neighbor walking two friendly dogs. And, if she ever gets help, she still has to finish the laundry and fix her leaky kitchen faucet.
They’ve really upped the scare factor to sell 24-hour emergency response systems since the days of clumsy Mrs. Fletcher, who uttered one of the 80′s most famous catchphrases, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”
Listen carefully at the 0:30 mark. See if you think she says cang instead of can’t. That used to drive my father CRAZY.
And, if you never heard that wacky song Dr. Demento used to play on his radio show, then TODAY IS THE DAY.
“No one lives with Mrs. Fletcher,
There was no one there to catch her.
She could really use a stretcher,
It looks bad for Mrs. Fletcher.”
