Gods and monsters tend to pick H&R Block

H&R Block is flooding the zone with commercials this tax season. Its Super Bowl spot from Campbell Mithun starring the Grim Reaper is just one of a raft of new ads. Others include "Cyclops," above, in which some one-eyed friends, presumably myopic on more than one level, marvel over getting a "second look" at their taxes; and "Cupid," below, in which the cherubic god of erotic love gets audited, and fails to warm the heart-cockles of the bean counter assigned to his case. There's a whole bunch more over at the company's YouTube page.
