Don’t Date Dexter

I see a lot of annoying commercials. We all do. But have you seen this commercial? I find it highly annoying.

“I make sure I know, before I date.”

Sorry, but a computer background check can’t tell you if the person you’re about to go out with is a good person or not.

“No stranger comes around my growing family, without a background check.”

Puh leeze.

  1. HighJive says:

    I would do a background check on both of those chicks. They look like closet serial killers. As for the one with the “growing” family, where’s dad? Does she even know who knocked her up?

  2. Seems totally comprehensive. If anything with the word “instant” in the commercial could be comprehensive.
