This odd couple scenario pairs Stan, a nice regular guy, with his roommate from hell, cable repairman Otto. The latter is inconsiderate and unreliable at every turn; in this spot, the phone rings, Otto picks it up, says "Hold Please," and then reclines back on the couch. Bewildered by his roomie's behavior, Stan then grabs the phone to find out who's calling�turns out it's his mom. The tagline: "Nobody should have to live with cable."
