    I just saw a new Stihl commercial on TV. Very professional, informative, made me want to by another one. Until the last 5 seconds or so. When they where showing the hometown dealers (in Louisville). One of the dealers had a woman (with only one arm, the the other cut off to her shoulder) standing there waving and a chainsaw sitting beside her. I didn't even notice at first. My wife had to bring it to my attention.

    I am still can't believe that they aired a commercial like that.

    No kidding. Talk about a twisted sense of humor (if that's what you call it).

    I didn't see the ad, but I wonder, what's wrong with a one-armed saleswoman? :confused:

    I have seen that Stihl commercial once. But I didn't notice that. I am of course assuming that it is the same one since I don't ever recall seeing any other Stihl TV comercial.
