"Help Me Brink's. I'm a F*ing Pussy"

Check out this Brink's Home Security commercial. I know they are actors but everytime I see it I don't know wether to laugh or throw my boot at the TV.


I've seen the other Brink's commercials but they usually put a woman in the 'victims' shoes and not a healthy looking pussy man. I've seen flamboyantly queer men, and a large share of women who wear comfortable shoes and some who don't, act more aggressive than this mama's boy.

Talk amongst yourselves and post comments. How many 'man card' violations did this guy commit and what do you think Brink's and ad agencies think what American men are really like?

Terra, I'd specially love to hear your POV on this one.

I counted 6. 7 if I were to say, "Things I wouldn't do that this **** did".

Bear in mind, this doesn't necessarily have to be 'must have a gun' argument either.

Can you imagine this guy being the one you'd have to share a foxhole with?

That commercial always cracks me up, "honey, someone tried to break in, lets hide under the covers and pretend no one is there" type attitude. Unfortunately , that commercial probably targets lots of American couples.

It should have been Brinks calling and the wife saying "Can you send the meat wagon, some guy tried to break in but we protected ourselves and all is well" :duh:

Re: "Help Me Brink's. I'm a F*ing Pussy"

lmao I've seen that

A real man fights back. But we all know that, don't we? ;D

I remember one night hearing my dad bellow ferociously. We all come running out of our rooms, to see the front door swinging wide open. We dash out the door to see my dad, .45 Magnum in hand, charging down the street like a mad bull, with some kid just managing to stay a few feet ahead of him.


That was the one and only break in attempt we ever had growing up. :)

That's funny. If someone breaks into our home the only argument will be over who gets the shotgun first.

i thought the argument would be over who has to clean up the bloody mess after they drag the remains of the intruder off to the morgue?

Sometimes I think I am the only one who notices things like this, then I come here :)

I think it is a sad commentary that BRINKS thinks this appeals to the average suburban family. I can only imagine what might happen in reality.

Only if you are a democrat or a pussy liberal. Who will then bitch afterwards that banning guns will actually stop crime........as if.

..........and what is Brinks going to do, turn up AFTER the crime and clean up the mess.

The main problem I see with with the video is that the guy failed to get out his new XCR and put 3 rounds into the chest of the bad guy....Then the wife grabs the XCR and pumps 3 more into him for messing up the kitchen!

Re: "Help Me Brink's. I'm a F*ing Pussy"

When did this commercial come out? What, 3 or 4 months ago or was it longer. I think I remember the first time I saw it it was basically almost half over when I started to pay attention to it. It was the part as he whooped around and ran. All that was missing was him screaming like a 7 year old girl.

The next time I saw it I noticed the following man-card violations:

1. His wife wakes him up and tell him about the noise. He THEN asks permission to check it out? I'd be, "Here hon. (give her a flash light and a gun) and tell her "I'll be back, but if isn't me, shoot it".

2. If he was concerned enough to 'check it out', be smart enough to bring something to 'check it with'. At least a 4 D-cell Maglight. One to light him up and ID him, and two, something to clock him with once you did ID him.

3. Now I might also have been startled when the glass broke, but I couldn't help but notice the guy look in great shape, probably from his 59.95 a month Bally's membership and all those hours on a treadmill...... all to help him turn as quick as he did and then slam the door. All I saw for a brief moment was an asshole and a pair of elbows. He already held the high ground with a clear a definite channel for the bad guy only option to approach, and he was, for a very brief moment, the only thing between him and his lovely sweet wife. But now the bad guy could have just shot up the stairs and not be seen until he kicked the upstairs door in. I'd also add, don't remain in the 'fatal funnel'.

4. I only have to wonder if the bed his wife was in was in his path as he ran away, would he have jumped over it in order to get behind his wife any quicker?

5. He was able to report to his wife that he just saw a guy just trying to break in, but apparently he was to shaken to answer the phone himself to calmy 'report it'

6. I'm still trying to figure out why he would turn the light off right after his wife turned it on. Maybe it was to hide his piss stain. I don't know. Just grasping at straws at this point for this guy has totally succumbed to being the biggest puss in TV commercial land.

The brinks guy should have also followed up the questioning something like, "This is Andy from Brink's Home Security. Are you all right?" "Followed by "I'm sending help right now. And since you don't have a real man at your house, put on something sexy I'll be right over and I'll take over from there". Then of course it turns in to a porno, but you get my point.

At he end you see the shaken couple speaking to a cop. I can just hear the cop ask, "So you didn't get a look at the guy because you were running away, right? Where exactly where you going to run to again? Ahhh, riiigght. And again, what was your name for the report? And how do you spell 'vagina' again?

And as I said before, this doesn't necessarily have to be 'must have a gun' argument either but I sure could see where an 870 would come in handy. And to add that ambushing a bad guy like that as he stepped in the house would be a wet dream come true. I might even go back to bed and give that woman the best sex ever before I called the cops to pick up the body. And I can't help but to wonder what that ad agency thought of what American men are really like?

Let me see on hearing noise and realizing an intruder is in the home:

1. Arm self and wife.
2. Wife calls cops while you secure the children. If you meet the intruder on the way to the childeren, ID and if necessary kill him.
3. Have wife rack the shotgun and wait in the bedroom. Noise might warn off the intruder and if he/she/they attempt to enter bedroom wife can dispatch 00 happiness.
3. Wait with children for police response or if threatened shoot the prick, two in the chest and one in the head.

The add agency is probably run by liberal democratic assholes. It's also basing it's message on general fear of invasion and harm. We all have this due to local news stations increasingly covering violent crime, coverage of this is up over 50% in the last five years, to get ratings. Some of us are prepared to NOT be victims however.

My mantra is not turn the other cheek, it's hit the prick back, harder.

I just replaced my legacy wireless home alarm with a new ADT alarm that I designed. I have to admit, I do sleep better and do not investigate every little noise now. However, I have am ready to if necessary.

Re: "Help Me Brink's. I'm a F*ing Pussy"

I have "Ninja Sleeps Here" signs all about my property. No one will break in unless a rival sensei sends assassins from his hidden dojo. They tried to destroy my Bronco by judo chopping a tree onto it, but the Bronco won. They will travel here via supersonic helicopter hidden in a dormant volcano co-piloted by Ernest Borgnine. When they attack, I'll sweep the leg and say "Boy, using that Oriental martial bullshit on me is gonna get real expensive". If the attacker persists, my next statement, will be "Boy, you just bought the whole can of whoop ass!".

Re: "Help Me Brink's. I'm a F*ing Pussy"

True story. I was about 11 when it happened. In a nice suburban neighborhood. Happened to a guy I went to school with named Art.

His dad wakes up in the middle of the night. Wife says "honey, I heard something downstairs." Art's dad sleepily walks down the stairs unarmed and sees an intruder -- who shoots him dead on the spot.

Art grew up without his dad. Perp was never caught.

Art's family didn't believe in keeping guns in the house.

Someone walked into my house, once, when I was just a toddler. My mother chased him out of the house with a double-barreled 12-gauge.

Never can figure out in those kind of movies how the guys learn to do reverse spin kicks, but not the basics of blocking.

It's because they haven't trained in Randall Tex Cobb's dojo. Therein lies the secret to all martial judo bullshit.

Now that's funny! Why am I surprised to find out I wasn't the only one thinking the way all of you are? I would have put a few 00 buck in his face without hesitation.
