Advert for Quickbooks

I received an inquiry from a member on another MP group about a "Quickbooks" ad.

Have any of you heard it?
Is there a soundbyte for it?
What part of the country/world is it playing in?

Second Post - - -

I've heard the ad a few more times since reporting
it. The last "Python" line is:
"This IS a cheese shoppe, isn't it?"
Forgive my misrememberance, but the first time that
I heard it, I was half-asleep and not really expect-
ing to hear such an OBVIOUS Python-nod. Hey, it
WASN'T the Spanish Inquisition. What can I say? Ni?
I guess they are trying to capitalize on the popu-
larity of Spamalot and any residual MP interest (or
else a creative director is a MP fan and just could
NOT resist doing it).

Crash!, Shreking Steel! (Whoops, Shreking fibreglass, it was Anne Corvette)!

"I have heard it on "Oldies" stations
broadcasting from the Grand Rapids MI
and Lansing MI areas."

Is the response I get.
If we had a member named "Duke",
I would know what to say -

"Duke - Nukem!"

Myanmar!

I'll forward to the powers that be.

They'll know how to sort it out.
