    Anyone seen these commercials?

    Totally hilarious especially the part about the prizes where you can win a 'toaster' and 'a big fraking bag'. It's so good to see a sponsor take the time to put thought into the prizes and make the relevant to the show.

    No, but if anyone has been watching the show on Sci-fi without cutting out the commercials, you can't miss it. It's been airing for maybe 2-3 weeks now.

    There's a promotional tie-in on the scifi.com/battlestar site, I think. It's something like the "You Can't Say Frak On TV Sweepstakes".

    I don't watch BSG with commercials, but apparently KFC changed its ad:

    Frak Pak ad

    Unfortunately, I do skip ads since I don't have SciFi.

    Here is a link from that page you linked to. It's probably the worst commercial they could have aired after what happens in the clip.

    Yup, that's the one. It still brings a smile to my face everytime the announcer says 'toasters' and the image of the words "Big Frakin bag".

    :sigh: Sadly only 2 more weeks to enjoy this commercial.
