Every time I see this AAG commercial with Fred Thompson, all I can think is that he’s talking to Jesse Pinkman from “Breaking Bad.” Jesse appears to have a thriving news stand on the street, and Fred even buys a newspaper from him.
“You know, some people have told me that reverse mortgages sound too good to be true,” Fred tells us. “I mean, you get cash out of your home, no monthly payments, and you still own your home. There’s gotta be a catch. Right, Jesse?”
The guy’s wearing a Jesse Pinkman knit hat, and he even looks a little like Aaron Paul. Doesn’t he? I’m not sure what AAG is trying to tell us with this ad.
Disclaimer: I know nothing about reverse mortgages, and I’m sure they’re a fine option for some people.
