you know, let's hope he can revive his film career. I actually own all his movies on VHS. They are pretty brilliant! And in Scout's honor, if you watch the scene where he's changing into his Scout shorts in slow motion, you can see his junk. Pretty cute.
Oh Gary . . .
Aren't those ads where someone says no one would lend them money supposed to be just an everyday Joe, down on his luck? Did Gary Coleman really just announce to the world that this is his life? That he's so hard up that no one, not even his family, will lend him money?
He could be an LA for Margarita Prentice or Sharon Tomiko-Santos.
I thought he was dead. Huh.
Whutch you talkin bout Willi...er I mean SeMe.
"Not even my relatives". Jesus. The only problem is, if you can't pay it back, they make you humiliate yourself on TV.
I saw this ad and just had to laugh.
99.25% APR?? "CashCall, you're awesome!" If by "awesome" you mean "assraping the poor and desperate without benefit of lube."
I'd like to think he has a sense of humor about this. It's too dismal to imagine that he really feels this humiliation and is forced to make this commercial out of poverty.
Come on, Gary. There's gotta be a game show or a boxing match you can sign up for. Oh, wait. Maybe the commercial's a better idea.
it's amazing that people do payday loans. I think it's one of those unfair things in life that the people who need financial planning the most are the people least able to afford to pay for it.
You would end up paying $9095.10 for the privilege of borrowing that $2600 under CashCall's generous terms.
Hey, it's something to put on the resume, and he made at least scale (plus the wardrobe allowance, since I'm going out on a limb here and guess that he wore his own clothes), so really, it's no worse than Harrison Ford hawking Suntori Whiskey.
Well, except for the fact that H.F. probably earned just a tad above scale for that gig - and almost no one in this country has ever seen the ad.
and whiskey is far and away much less awful than payday loans.
This is true. Whisky (their own website vacillates on this important point, using both (Irish, American) whiskey and (Scottish, Canadian) whisky) is in fact a great boon. It tastes good, makes you drunk, and makes the lights go all pretty. Payday loans not so much.
He could be sucking cock on film...
Although, that may be next.
I see these ads all the time in Columbus. This has to be hands-down one of the worst payday loan companies I've heard of around here - the fine print at the end of the commercial details an APR of 99%!
Gary, Gary, Gary... If you would only whore yourself out a bit and say "wachoo talkin about Willis" when someone wants to you would not be in that position.
I saw this commercial and quickly read the fine print..i HAD to DVR it and read it again, slowly...99.25% APR??? Is this even legal? Doesn't that pretty much surmount to loansharking? Man, Gary Coleman must be HURTIN' for some cash!
