Dick Clark in a Comcast ad (sort of)

Ok... this is VERY odd...

Comcast has taken a clip of Loretta Swit on 20,000 Pyramid and the WC clues were altered to be categories related to Comcast and bashing satellite dishes... the voices were also altered... Dick Clark could be heard saying "Here is your first subject... GO!" The contestant makes it all the way to the top of the WC, and a nice remix of the 20k Pyramid theme is heard.

I want to dispel any rumors right here and now that a robotic version of Mr. Clark, nicknamed Virtual Dick, is being tested and readied for the upcoming New Year's Eve telecast to be co-hosted with Ryan Seacrest. Repeat: the real Dick Clark will be hosting the New Year's Eve telecast. There is no truth to the rumor that the New Year's Eve telecast will be co-hosted by Ryan Seacrest and Virtual Dick.

However, Seacrest was heard to say "Virtual Dick or real Dick, it's all good to me."
