Those Tanner Transmission ads

I've just been subjected to seen my 5,000th Tanner Transmission commercial -- you know, the one where the guy turns toward the camera and scowls, "Leadership: It comes from acting by doing." Sheesh, you'd think he was leading the Great Raid on Cabanatuan or something instead of offering us all a power flush.

Anyway, I just have to say: Tanner Transmission, how do you pay for all that advertising? I see your face almost as often as Siegfried & Jensen's. And how about a new one once in a while? The only ad I want to see over and over for 20 years is this one:

Thank you.

And it would be nice if they could explain what the devil "leadership comes from acting by doing" means. My first reaction to hearing the ad in its last previous reincarnation was "huh"? Still is.
