I just turned on the TV and saw a a new Safe Auto Insurance commercial came on..The spokesman walks up to what appears to be a re-badged Columbus (Ohio) PD car and says, "This is a Police Interceptor. It has a high output V8..."

I was like, "wow!"

I tried to get a good look at the door logo, but it definitely did not look like a Columbus badge... The buildings in the background do look familiar though (like maybe the new substation at Cleveland and 11TH?

as if E-surance is not bad try the general insurance commercials. I personally hate all insurance commercials. In fact I hate all commercials. I DVR all my shows just to fast forward past them.

"high output v8"???

At 250hp it wouldnt even be "high output" if it was a v6.

I hate seeing those bumper stickers on cars. Makes me think one thing, "this person sucks soooo badly as a driver, no one but these clowns will carry them..."

Well if you're referring to the E-surance commercials, check this out and bring a barf bag.

Of course not. They changed the door badge for the commercial. All the cars in the background look like Columbus PD.

This is a 2006 CVPI from the Columbus PD


This is the commercial I was talking about

in the commercial, the cruiser number is X12, meaning it is an extra cruiser. Look carefully at the cruiser that passes in the beginning.
