Rosland Capital, William Devane

Commercials We’re Sick Of: William Devane and Rosland Capital

Rosland Capital, William Devane
“Yeah, I’m way richer than you.” – William Devane

I don’t think those Rosland Capital commercials starring William Devane are having the desired response. If I have to watch one more TV spot where he’s flying his plane, sitting in his gorgeous home with his massive fireplace, or riding his horse on his expansive ranch, I’m just not sure what I’ll do.

Especially when he says, “Dontcha just love the feel of gold?” Yeah, I’m sure I’d love it way more than the piles of bills on my desk. Hey, William, send some of those gold coins over and I’ll put them in my safe. Keep ’em safe for ya.

    I agree with Jane regarding the William Devane Rosland commercials. Though I’m a conservative and have nothing against making money in our captialistic society, these commercials make me want to throw up. Liking the “feel of gold” is a definite turn-off. Glad someone else has been irritated by the ads.

      Thank you! And dear lord, they just get more and more annoying. Here’s William Devane flying his plane over his massive estate, here he is riding his horse, here he is in his gold-plated log home mansion. I’m all for making money, too, but Rosland needs a new spokesperson.

        Surprisingly, he’s only worth $5 million…a LOT for all of us, but considering, it’s pretty modest for a star…those pathetic Kardashians are worth $100 million plus for doing nothing. The commercials that nearly makes me want to throw a chair into my TV are the Liberty Mutual ones! Every actor in those commercials makes me nauseous!

      I actually called them (Rosland Capital) and told them how irritating their commercials are and that they do NOT represent the average person. How dare that they go ahead with a person who flaunts their wealth and claim it is because of the feel of gold. They actually called me back weeks later! Thought I was an “interested customer” – I told them they were wrong and again told them my reasons. It has been a few months now and they have not called me but those annoying commercials are still being aired.

      1. Jane Boursaw Avatar

        Good for you for calling them! And truly, especially in these difficult financial times, that commercial is a complete disconnect with what’s really going on in the country.

        What compensation does William Devine get from Rosland Capital for doing one
        of their commercials?

        1. Jane Boursaw Avatar

          I have no idea, but I’m guessing it’s substantial. Enough to add some gold to his safe.

        Sick of seeing William Devane, Flo and Progressive, Viagra, eHarmony with that old guy, toilet paper ads with the bear … they can put crap like that on and can’t put decent commercials on. My deceased relatives are rolling over in their graves with all the smut on TV these days. I’m 72 and this country is so far away from morals, it’s awful. This is what the little kids have to watch and grow up with. Pathetic.

        William Devane is also touting the Medicare Help Line. I called and talking to a bunch of used car salesmen. Money back to your Social Security every month, False. You have to forfeit any insurance you have in order to qualify for their program, are you crazy. I refer to this as Medicare Fraud Line.

    3. Joanie Avatar

      No, no, no girls. I love these ads. In fact, I love william Devine. I’d like to marry him. I can see me in that mansion, on one of the horse or any of his rich man toys. However if in real life he’s a near broke actor, forget it.

      I do not know enough about “those TV commercials” to make any comments about what, exactly, the Rosland message is that’s suppose to be-in-focus. I immediately grab the REMOTE when I hear the “Hi I’m William Devane” . . . It’s that simple. I will never ever have anything to do with Rosland Capital. Even if I don’t know them, I can NOT stand those TV commercials.

      1. UnkSam Avatar

        . . . From what I understand about the Main-Message of these types of Commercials; it’s all like this; “I am telling you something that is really, really, really good to own! You should own this! This is just great to own! . . . BTW, I am trying to sell mine!”

      He should be ashamed of himself, for fronting a crooked company. I bought 5 gold coins from them for $1800 each, only to find out they were only worth about $1200 each. Big big profit for Rosland Capitol. They cheated me fair and square. hahaha

      1. Ron Randall Avatar
        Ron Randall

        Yup, what I paid $9200 for was only worth $6000. Shame I was so trusting.

      What really irritates me is that on the TV commercial that I see on FOX, this d=bag is calling Rosland Gold.. RosLING…. ROSLING…. ing…. ING… Why would they let a spokesperson hawk a product that he is tooo f’in stupid to pronounce correctly… Yeah,,, he can’t even say the word. I will really cling to everything he says… He sounds completely STUPID

  2. WOH Avatar

    William Devane’s net worth is only $5mil which is not that much money these days. With his sprawling ranch and private plane, he actually wouldn’t have that much liquid cash to purchase gold “every chance he gets!” So my guess is Rosland Capital compensates William by tossing him a couple of gold coins each time he films YET ANOTHER disgusting ad. Gee, I wonder who pays cable for the constant expensive airtime for these insulting ads??? Any chump who calls Rosland Capital and purchases gold, that’s who

      I agree with you. The commercials are nausiating. If he is only worth five million dollars, there is not much in “his safe”. Besides, it looks like gold is not much of an investment at this time.

      I wonder just what kind of financial deal he has with Rosland to push their company. Either good money, gold and or silver or a great rate on purchasing their product. I would like to know just to see how sincere he is and how much BS he is full of……

    I just called Rosland and told them I’m sick of seeing William Devine every
    fifteen on Fox, and would never buy anything from them.

    A real has-been. An obvious sucker move. I wonder if he really even owns any of HIS gold! It has dropped from 1900 to 1280! How about those poor suckers that moved their money into a gold IRA!! This is a real fiddle.

      His days are over in movies, so he turned to the alternative. Big money for commercials, just like all the washed up actors in Hollywood.

    I cannot believe Devane actually believe in Rosland Capital. They screwed me several years ago and I would never believe in them again…. I get upset every time I see Devanes commercial on Rosland.

      It’s such a shame they can’t use people in these commercials that REALLY need the money…that would have a better impact on the listening audience. Yet, the average “Joe” can’t afford to buy gold or silver…and we certainly don’t have any hidden “safes” (vaults) Devane always asks us about.

      I feel the same way about the repetitiveness of these ads. After a while they have an adverse effect for the product they’re selling.

      Yes, there’s a certain amount of jealousy…but the overall complaint I have is the anger the ads bring out in me when I hear them over and over and over and over again all day! I dash for the remote to put it on mute. I usually have TV on during the day for some background noise while I’m writing ads. I have on cable news where the commercials are frequent. THEY ARE ANNOYING AND SHOULD BE EITHER CHANGED OR CANNED!! See, I’m losing it again…sorry:)

    He’s an actor people. At least he’s working, paying taxes. No one is forced to watch. There’s an “off”, “channel changer” on all remotes…..& “volume control”. It’s a commercial for gosh sakes!!

    I to get tired of commercials that roll over and over, and if you change channels there they are again ,but, Devane has worked hard, and has a right to make gold, silver, or dog food commercials if he so pleases. I wish I could make money doing commercials for my years of work, but I was not in his line of work.

    1. Jane Boursaw Avatar

      Good point. I’d probably be doing the same thing in his position (making commercials).

    William Devane commercials make me cringe. The only advice my father gave me was “whatever you do, don’t do the work yourself.” He was a dentist. He told me “every day I wake up and go to work putting my hands in the dirtiest hole in the human body.” Now THAT’s good advice!

      I am glad my dentist does not feel like that. I doubt that your Dad did either.

    It’s not so much the ads themselves (there’s a new one with old Bill on the golf course) that bother me. It’s the fact that, from everything I’ve read, Devane is a left-wing liberal democrat.

    Doesn’t get more hypocritical than that. But, then again, what would you expect from a left-wing, liberal democrat?

    1. Carol Jones Avatar
      Carol Jones

      Good point James. Those William Devane commercials make me wanna puke. I have to change the channel. And now he’s got a whole slew of new ads. He’s about as irritating as it gets.

    I was not a fan of his early on but think he does a credible job in the commercials. i do not like Flo, the AAG commercials and others. Devane is believable.

  15. Charles Avatar

    The commercial deal is a way for Devane to pay his property tax. He’s not necessarily broke, but he’s definitely not liquid. California property tax records don’t show any leins on any of his assets. Records also don’t show him owning a plane. Nothing registered with the FAA either.

    So that means that the whole airplane angle was marketing bullshit. Wonder if Devane even knows how to fly?

  16. Monica Avatar

    My brother in law commented that he dislikes the AAG commercial because Fred flips Jesse a coin for the paper, and there is no paper around anymore that you can buy with a coin. My sister said he is probably flipping Jesse one of Willuam Devanes Rosland Capital gold coins! Hahaha!

      Ha! Crossover commercials – love it.

    I agrees that Mr. Devane needs to be retired. I can’t count the times I’ve changed the channel just to avoid his commercials.

    Sick of William Devane. Nothing against William Devane. He used to be likeable enough in a 2nd-rate-actor sort of way. BUT anyone would grate the nerves after being in a commercial every 15 frixking minutes on TV. Enough is enough. I quickly turn channels as soon as I hear “Hi, I’m William Devane.”

    Yes! I hate those commercials and figured someone else has to hate them as much as I do and am pleased someone has a similar sentiment. If I hear one more time, “Hi, I’m William Devane…” I might injure my new 50″ TV. Stupid, I know, but I can’t always run across the room fast enough to shut that moron’s voice off. Just writing his name makes me want to vomit!

    Does anyone actually believe that Devane is worth.only $5,000,000?
    It’s probably more like $50,000 000.
    His pay for this commercial is probably $5,000,000.

    Why do they always use second rate actors and play these over and over? We don’t care about Nutrisystem (Scam) and Rosland Gold (Scam). Marie Osmond makes me want to puke. It would be more memorable if her brother Donny force fed her Nutrisystem garbage food down her throat until she explodes while he sings a stupid song. She is just as irritating as William Devane. They should hook up and he can ask Marie if she will accept gold in exchange for Nutrisystem freeze dried crap, among other favors.

    1. Jane Boursaw Avatar

      But tell us how you *really feel, Brent! I totally agree about the Marie Osmond Nutrisystem commercial, though – it’s annoying.

    In all of my 63 years, I have never disliked an advertisement more than I detest seeing Devane pimping precious medals. The ads are old! He has been mentioning the debt for 3 years now. He also claims that the government didn’t give him any money when the bailouts occurred. Why doesn’t he say how poorly gold and silver have done for investors in the last 3 years? I try to mentally tune him out when he continues to be on TV. Rosland: I will not even consider your stuff while I still see the pimp, Devane representing and misrepresenting the glory of gold and silver.

  25. Zeke Avatar

    What irritates me is that he is selling a loser. Everyone who took his advice in the last 5 years has a loss on the books.

    William Devane is just trying to make a buck. Rosland Cap decides to continuously run the same old spots.

    He can’t compare to the fat black woman dancing around town in people’s faces after her “numbahs are down” with Crestor! Disgusting.

    Very, very sad for all you folks who are ‘green’ with envy. I’ve always liked Devane and, frankly, hoped that the commercials represented his lifestyle. When I see some one doing so well, I’m pleased; then go back to my life always ignoring the the commercial’s intended content. If you’re dumb enough to believe that someone else is paying a fortune (commercials are EXPENSIVE) to make up you a fortune, you’ve got more problems than your personal concerns with Bill Devane!

    My absolute most hated commercial of William Devane is the one with the Battleship Iowa, which I have personally toured as of 2013. He claims that Battleships “patrol the seas” when in fact they were used in WW2 to fight other capital ships, then basically mothballed because aircraft carriers were considered more deadly in combat. He really is marketed to the FOX News crowd who are obsessed with militarism (but relatively dim-witted) and I can’t stand his awful commercials.

    I am in the investment business. If I were to run commercials like that, print or tv, I’d be in jail. We have be licensed, belong to a to a broker-dealer, and cannot state any kind of expectations (silver, too). We are under intense regulations and I don’t how Rosland and others don’t have to comply. I turn the channel.

  39. Keith Avatar

    William Devane first starting promoting gold when it was over $1800 an ounce. If he is truly investing in it, then he’s losing his butt. This may be why he can’t quit the advertising business. He has to make up his losses.
