WHEN I WATCH BRINKS HOME SECURITY COMMERCIALS LIKE THIS ONE, I think that the nice lady might be safer from the evil intruder if she had a gun, instead of a telephone and a siren. Of course if Brinks home security offered this degree of service, it might be different . . . .
UPDATE: An alternate commercial, from reader Peter Gookins:
Alarm going off.
Brinks: Ma'am, this is Brink's. Is everything all right?
Customer: Well, there's a dead guy on the porch and empty brass all over
my family room. Can you send help?
Brinks: We'll dispatch the maid service right away.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Kind of like this one.
