The Security Alarm Commercial

I’m sure you’ve all seen the commercials for Brink’s Home Security.

Oh my goodness, those commercials bug me! They’re so incredibly unrealistic.

In each commercial, there’s a helpless damsel in a house with a kid or two, always at night. Then an Extremely Scary Bad Guy violently shatters a window, trying to do whatever it is Extremely Scary Bad Guys are wont to do.

Instantly, the phone rings. It’s a representative from Brink’s Home Security System.
This representative is ALWAYS a very good-looking, clean cut guy with a square jaw who says, “Brink’s Home Security! This is Brock! Is everything okay?”

Of course, the Extremely Scary Brink’s Alarm has scared off the Extremely Scary Bad Guy who goes fleeing into the night.

But Brock and his square jaw has saved the day and stays on the phone to comfort the Extremely Scared damsel in distress.


But here’s how it really goes down.

At approximately 3:00 am, a raccoon trips the Brink’s security system while rummaging through a discarded pizza box in the garbage.

Forty minutes later, a representative named Salwa from Brink’s Home Security’s central office, (conveniently located in Hyderabad, India), calls the family to notify them that they’re being charged $250.00 for not responding to the alarm - - -

- - which they never heard in the first place.
