Jimmy Walker's Medicare Commercial is beyond sad

 


I mean, at least we all recognize Joe Namath.  When Joe Namath picks up his ill-begotten paycheck for pimping this crap he can take some comfort in the fact that he didn't have to decorate the background with Extremely Un-Subtle Reminders of who he is so that the elderly people watching this nonsense didn't wonder who was trying to pitch them "extra" Medicare "insurance."

Poor Jimmy Walker has to remind us that we knew him as "JJ" and for a really dumb, best-forgotten and certainly unsung and unwept punchline that was all the rage for fifteen minutes back in the mid-70s.  Like Jimmy Walker himself.  I wonder how much this company paid him to screech "Dinomite!," considering he's probably been willing to do it for free for the past forty years for anyone willing to pose with him, ask for an autograph, and otherwise acknowledge him as a flash-in-the-pan one trick pony whose time ran out before I graduated from eighth grade.  That GEICO gig didn't come through, huh, "JJ?" 

The Good Times are over, and they ain't comin' back, Jimmy.  And nostalgia ain't what it used to be, either.

  2. Lots of people swallow the get rich rhetoric peddled by Capitalism's hucksters. Sad. Thinking maybe Socialism would be better all around. Especially now that it is harder to evade scrutiny. At least JJ would not have to lose his dignity. Complicated issue.

  3. Even though I agree with most of what you said about JJ, I was glad to see that JJ got this commercial. I hope he gets other offers as well.

    1. Sometimes you have to realize when it's over it's over. He is the most irritating person on tv. He hasn't aged well and he is no longer relevant to the ever changing entertainment world. I am 73 and he was irritating on Good Times so I surely don't want to see him or hear his voice when I am watching my Court shows. Poof be gone Jimmy Walker!

  4. The moment this ad comes on, I reach for the “clicker”. Hearing JJ over-emphasize the words “money” and “NOW!!!” Drive me over the edge.

    2. Exactly 💯%!!! Dumb dumb dumb...STUPID AND UBER ANNOYING!!!! That is the LAST number I would ever call bc obviously THEY aren't too bright either to hire that guy. I doubt there are many people who even know who this guy is without looking him up. And why would you want to? ANNOYING as hell then. Worse now!

  5. Quality and integrity of a product doesn't exist for the companies that use them for a tax write off.
    Why cant we do something about annoyance of commercials? There should be some kind of standard set under law that protects the public from humiliation especially when it boils down to annoying creepy people.

  6. Somehow, the writers of these horrible commercials have not reached their collective basis until the latest in "JJ" Jimmy Walker ads just released. He went for annoying beyond and above3 and achieved this dubious stature with his despicable delivery of three words: money, free and dy-no- mite. I pity the old fool!

  10. Why would anyone hire this moron idiot Walker for a commercial. He talks in this annoying voice and makes a complete ass of himself ... get this jerk off our TVs .. we cringe every time this loser appears ....

  11. I knew it wasn't just me. When he says the words "muuneee" and "nowww" it's worse than hearing the proverbial "chalk screeching against the blackboard". Just hearing him say "dynomite" was bad enough on the first commercial. His vocal tone and pitch are insufferable. Thank God for the mute and channel buttons. I do admit that hearing the comments from others who feel the same way was very entertaining!

  12. OMG!! I thought there MAY be others who agree with my feelings on this jerk, but never realized to what extent! LMAO! I have to mute my TV every time he comes on ~ I would never have believed that he could have been anymore irritating than he already was, but his NEW commercials are like hearing nails on a chalkboard! He has SO MANY pictures of himself around him and people STILL DON' T KNOW WHO HE IS!! His " call NOOOOOWWWWW" is just TOO ,TOO MUCH and his "FREEEEEEE" is even worse! The fact that his commercials often run back to back annoys me to the quick! They really need to take this jerk off the air, perhaps give his spot to some other celebrity ~ or EVEN BETTER, start using normal, everyday seniors to promote the product they're trying to sell! WE are the ones being targeted, why not help US pad our bank account? SO MANY seniors are living below poverty level, myself included, until this year when we received a halfway DECENT COLA (cost of living adjustment)....PLEASE! Get this idiot off the air!!!
