D90 sighting in TV Insurance Commercial

I finally got a round to watching this weeks episode of "Heroes".

As I was fast forwarding thru the commercials I saw a blue D90 in an insurance commercial - I think it was State Farm - I'll try to post the clip.

It's amazing how excited one (me) gets when they see a Defender on TV here in the States.

I saw it too last night during Grey's anatomy. It was Ameritrade's latest ad campaign with Dennis Hopper. The campaign is called "Dreams don't retire". The ad is on youtube. I thought I scored on getting a Rover Sightings mug from RN, but the latest RN News going out has it called out. Back to the drawing board.

I know I saw 2 commercials last night, but only confirmed one as the Dennis Hopper advert. Assumed the other was as well. I said to my wife, "there's an abnormal amount of defenders in commercials during this show" and assumed it was due to Dr. Mcdreamy's series. The other must have been statefarm.

Someone sent me an email the other week saying "Hey I saw your D90 on an insurance commercial". I found that odd since mine is not quite standard looking with the external cage and I didnt recall driving through any commercial sets.
