Unfortunate Ad Placement

Last night I watched an episode of "Dirty Jobs" that I had on my TIVO. "Dirty Jobs" is a show on Discovery Channel that sends host Mike Rowe out to tag along with people that have really bad and disgusting jobs. Like road kill cleaner or septic tank specialist. The episode I saw had Mike doing sewer inspections in San Francisco. Mike's down in the sewer pipe, hunched over, with rats running on, over, and around him. The light pans across the arched room of the sewer and it appears to be shimmering and moving. As the camera zooms in we see that the ceiling is covered with roaches. Big honking roaches. Then there is a break and as they go to commercial they announce "This program is brought to you by Red Lobster", followed by a Red Lobster commercial showing a lobster. And damn if that lobster doesn't remind me somehow of a roach.
