The new AOL commercial

Have you seen the new AOL commercial?
A fellow is leaning against a wall, saying how he'd like his computer to be slower. The voice-over then begins, and your friendly, neighbourhood, AOL sales representative tells you, the dumb consumer, about how so many people leave themselves wide open for viral attacks. They are about to come to your rescue and provide you with free protection.
As for myself, I am still struck by that opening scene.
"I'd like my computer to slow way down."
It's a study in irony.
This is, after all, an AOL commercial.
