I am CNBC!

For anyone who regularly watches CNBC, you can't help but notice the "I am CNBC" series of commercials.

According to the internets, the commercials have both supporters and detractors, and I can see both sides of the divide.

Last week, Jane Wells tipped me off that her "I am CNBC" commercial is finally going to air -- much to her horror.  Jane's about the funniest person on the planet, and the sort of faux-serious nature of these commercials probably hits a discordant note with her funny bone.

We had the following exchange on my Facebook page:

Jane Wells at 8:10pm June 2: "imagine a very scary woman staring at you refusing to look down because she didn't like the other people looking down in their ads ... except it's really scary because she...just...keeps...staring...at you... saying things like "I have a basset hound named homer"..."I have a soft spot for the American flag."

Nick Ragone at 8:14pm June 2 via Facebook Mobile: "I did imagine it, and now I can't stop laughing lol ... I'm gonna tivo it and play it on a loop!"

Jane Wells at 8:24pm June 2 via Facebook Mobile:  I suggested that I say things, "I'm not that bright", and "Jesus Christ is my personal savior" but they preferred "I am a die-hard Trojan fan."

Can't wait to see these commercials ...
