Brinks Home Security

For those of you who aren't familiar with Brinks Home Security ads, here is one I think you should watch really quickly so you understand what I'm talking about. Only the first 28 seconds are required -

Now that you've seen the commercial, you know that Brinks Home Security will call you immediately after someone breaks your sliding door. Simply lock yourself in your bathroom and you are home free. However, all of these commercials hinge on the fact that all burglars run away at the sound of an alarm. I'm waiting for the day that they look into all the options, and make a commercial featuring a less easily-frightened burglar that goes like this:

[Window is broken by a carefully casted white man, alarm goes off]

Girl: Oh no, oh no... ah!
Jim: This is Jim from Brinks Home Security, are you all right?
Girl: No, I've been killed by a burglar.
Jim: Aaah... dang.

This commercial is riddled with plot holes.

I love how the girl narrates her own actions. First dates are brutal. Bwhahahaha.

What a commercial. I love the moment when she mistakes a man throwing a rock at the backdoor as her date.
