When it's game time, it's pain time, baby....wooooooooooo!!, 17 March 2004
Author: SherlockJr from Deep In the 562
These are by far some of the best ads EVER!!! They are a smart
juxtaposition of office politics and the American sports mentality. Not
mention subtle pop culture references like "How many times to have to tell
you to put a cover sheet on your TPS reports, GARY?!!" The fact that the
name of the company is Felcher and Sons is genius in and of itself. Mr.
Felcher's business cliches like "thinking outside the box" and "synergy",
mixed with Terry's trash-talking after every hit, elevate this commercial
Oh, and I love the fact that in the new short, T.T. VS. H.R. the firm the Human Resource woman works for is called "Sanchez and Steamer"!!!

I don't know why I find this so damn funny, but I do!!, 27 January 2003
Author: rickjolo from St Albans, NY
I first saw this during the Super Bowl and could not stop laughing!! I guess the concept of an "Office Linebacker" appeals to me and should to anyone who has had to work with inconsiderate co-workers(and haven't we all?).

Very funny office fantasy, 11 October 2005
Author: bob the moo
Productivity is up at Felcher & Sons and the CEO puts it all down to
the impact of one new employer former NFL player Terry Tate. In his
role as Office Linebacker Terry ensures that the annoying and
inefficient people in the office are kept on their toes with a range of
tackles, smackdowns and trash talking.
I really hate American Football and the idea of watching the Super Bowl for 4 hours in the middle of the night is not one I have any interest in. However in America the TV spots and commercials seem to be one of the big attractions for the audiences with big film trailers, trunk monkeys and things like this short film. Here we have the simple idea of a NFL player taking out "punks" within the office environment, shouting and shouting "bitch" a lot. It is a simple idea but it is very funny the guy who finishes the coffee, the bad worker, the annoying chatter, the guy who uses speaker phone in an open plan office they all get taken down by Tate. It is perhaps funny because we all have people like this that we wish would be taken down in style and it is perhaps a bit of escapism.
The tackles are very convincing and had me wincing several times. Tate is played with real energy and the juxtaposition of his attitude and the bland world of the open plan office make for a comic mix that works very well. Meanwhile the office staff are convincingly played and also take hits very well. Overall a very funny advert that had me laughing from start to finish; it can be easily downloaded and it is worth trying to find.

The kind of guy you wish you had 10 of around the office, 20 February 2003
Author: YatInExile from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA
I saw this for the first time yesterday and I've already played it 30
My favorite part was the guy with the recycle bin.
"The pain train's comin'! WOO WOOOOOO!!!"
