You know what you don't see much any more? Those supremely reassuring AIG TV commercials. They've disappeared, for some reason. Luckily astute (and bitter) people have preserved them on the internet!

1. There, there, honey. Shut up and look at the butterflies. Our future is safe with AIG.

2. You want your child's finances to be as secure as their car seat. That's why you've gone with AIG. Because you also bought a defective car seat.

3. This ad comically features the tagline, "The clock's ticking." Yes it is.

Please refer to these whenever the temptation to feel sorry for AIG arises. [Mep Report's YouTube page, via Agency Spy]
