The First Honest Cable Company is a spoof ad showing what an honest ad from your cable company would look like.
This mock cable company commercial from what Extremely Decent Films has dubbed “The First Honest Cable Company.” is freaking hilarious.
Just a snippet of the transcript in case you can’t watch the video right now:
You’ll have the option of choosing from several of our completely unwarranted ripoffs, including internet speeds almost 200 times slower than Korea… at twice the price. TV packages with over 500 channels, 90% of which you can’t view and we guarantee a plethora of hidden fees. Then our barely trained technicians will come to install your service somewhere between the hours 8am and 10 pm, knock once while you’re in the shower, and promptly leave…. Why you ask? We’re part of what is called an “oligopoly.” It’s like a monopoly… only legal!
Looking for a better deal, you can gobble down our balls… you’re paying for it.

Fortunately for many, there IS another option: local wireless high speed. See my post about HughesNet for two sites where you can search to see if there is any where you are.
