A&G is going commercial

For a week now, morning talkers Armstrong & Getty (KSTE 650 AM, My58TV simulcast) have been urging listeners to post video ads for the show on YouTube.

How has it gone?

Well, let's just say it hasn't taken off like Stephen Colbert's green-screen challenge on his Comedy Central show. So far, there have been two entries.

One is a funny spot featuring a lonely, almost suicidal, guy in front of his TV, watching A&G. He winds up shooting up the TV, a la Elvis. The other is a more conventional ad featuring the YouTube staple - cleavage.

C'mon. We know there are A&G fans in Sactown and the Bay Area who are Web savvy enough to come up with a hilarious bit.
