This guy would appear to be screwed:

    I plan to move any copies I find in B&N, etfc. to the historical fiction section.

    I see that you’ve found the marvelous advertisements from Centraal Beheer, a Dutch insurance company located in Apeldoorn (their tagline translates to “Let’s call Apeldoorn”). Wonderful humour!

    It also appears that they’ve captured the essence of acupuncture in this 60-second spot.
