    Nadya Suleman aka Octomom is in this money lending TV commercial and the financial lending company is actually called OctoLoan. It's so obvious that she's reading her lines, which aren't a lot...can't even memorize them. I guess her memory's not the best. Has anyone seen this?

    I've seen it a couple of times. Don't think I will be availing myself of the service.

    Who would ever take out a payday loan. It's a legal form of loan sharking.

    While were at it, stay away from those college loan companies that advertise on TV as well. Those interest rates are insane.

    People who desperately need money, of course, who don't have friends or family able or willing to help. Who need it fast or need it despite credit problems. Among other types.

    But who would choose this service...?

    It seems like Octomom is in desperate need of money. Those poor kids!

    True, I don't know why I posted it as a question. A question without a question mark to be exact.

    Why anyone would take anything done by octomom seriously is beyond me....she has no money of her own to invest:dizzy: and I'd be wary to invest in any online recommended scheme...

    The whole concept of Octomom peddling a payday loan service is so bizarre it may as well come from The Onion!

    OctoMom's seal of approval/endorsement of this product actually makes me want to use it even less. Initially when it started playing I was like, "Hmm, okay, maybe this is a joke or she's just practicing it at home and somehow the video got leaked or she put it up on her youtube channel hoping to get noticed by a company." (You know, like she's building up her portfolio, but since the only jobs she can get are talk shows, she made a fake commercial to show she has "range")

    However, because there's a phone number and a different woman's voice at the end, I'm thinking this is an actual real commercial. Talk about low budget! This looks like me when I make videos on my i-Pad, except I am not endorsing a company.

    Something in my gut tells this is going to turn out to be scam and not just a loan shark, high interest rates scam. But something like, "Put down $50 - 100 for collateral and we'll wire the rest of the money you need into your account", so you do and you never hear from OctoLoan again.

    First and foremost, what is up with that setting? Could she or one of her many helpers not make up the bed first and get some of the toys out of shot?

    Second, I thought it was struggling so much and that's why she is on welfare, looking around doesn't indicate someone that is poor or trying to put food on the table.

    Good gracious, that whole situation is just a shame! Smh

    I haven't seen this commercial.

    The comic Kathleen Madigan had a bit about voting her out of the country. I'd totally vote as many times as possible for that!

    Octomom has also done some semi- nude photos, stripping, and a porn video called 'Octomom, Home alone' to earn money...sad situation resulting from bad choices.

    Imagine how her kids will feel when they figure it all out...on one hand she's doing what she thinks she needs to do to support her family, on the other hand:dizzy: Wowza.

    Em_Catz, yes this is an ACTUAL commerical I first saw on TV the day I posted this. I figured it was on YouTube since I wanted to have a link to show you guys here. Horrendous isn't it?
