Bless Your Heart: The Drollest Local TV Commercial Series Of All Time
First, we'll take a look at where Bob started, before he found his muse, then get ready for some Sahara Desert levels of dry comedy:
Tired of Renting?
Bless Your Heart
A Connecticut Yankee in Bob Lovell's Court
The True Meaning of Peace
Bob Has Balls for Local "Celebrities" Pugs and Kelly
He's Not Always Funny?**
Even now, after years spent watching and laughing with these ads, I don't really know what HMS does. Of course, I don't really care, either, because being a "home owner" has never once been on my bucket list. Yet every time I see one of these ads, I have the sudden urge to buy a home, fix it up, and then sell it just so I have a reason to call Bob. Then, when I explain what I've done, he could tell me, straight to my beaming face, "Bless your heart." And the hole in my soul would finally be filled.
* No matter how much I love Pete Holmes, I hate, hate, mother flippin' hate those ads.
** Don't sell yourself short, Bob!
Rob Payne also writes the comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter, tumbls on the Tumblr, and his wares can be purchased here. He used to love "Joe Isuzu," too, but the actor's career post-Joe is kind of depressing.
