Two pharmacists from Omaha tried their hand at producing a political TV commercial that aired exclusively on WOWT Channel 6.

Matt Kubat and Jim Quinley both say they are fed up with negative political advertising so they decided to make their feelings known on the air. The two put up several thousands of dollars to produce two commercials poking fun at the current crop of political advertisements now filling the airwaves.

The two commercials consist of Kubat and Quinley sitting in front of a flag and asking, "Are you tired of these political ads running constantly? If so, we're here to provide you with some relief from those irritating ads."

One commercial goes on to show some beautiful images of Nebraska, the other suggests that getting your teeth drilled is preferable to one more political commercial. The commercials are being well received.

"We have had several people call and say that they haven't laughed that hard in months and thanks for the little break from the commercials," says Quinley.

The two only had enough money in their budget to run the commercials for a few days, but they are now making their presence known on the Internet.
