season 3 episode 6 (3ACV06)..

during the montage where bender is with angelene, they are doing "couples" activities.. when bender is at the carnival trying to win angelene a prize and he misses with his first 2 (of 3) throws, he then throws his last ball at the carny and knocks him out and steals a gigantic stuffed pig for agelene.

this was pretty funny..

so earlier today i'm flipping around directv (i think i was watching baseball tonite on ESPN) and they show a "mike's hard lemonade" commercial.. the guy threw the ball at the carny, knocked him out and stole the alcoholic beverages. i was instantly engraged! a blatant ripoff of our beloved bender..

to make sure i wasnt jumping the gun and that this whole "knocking out the carny and stealing a prize"wasnt an old gag or anything, i asked a few people if they had ever heard about this.. although they laughed, none had ever heard of it.. i even asked some old people just to be sure..

so anyhow.. maybe i'm wrong about this.. but this seems like a total ripoff..

you can actually view the offending ripoff

1) go to http://www.mikeshardlemonade.com
2) enter a birthdate that indicated that you're over 21
3) skip intro
4) click on "mike's propaganda"
5) click on "tv"
6) click on "state fair"
7) click on "high" or "low" depending on if you have broadband or dialup..

I have seen that exact commercial
I thought it looked familiar but couldn't remember from where.  I don't know if it is a ripoff, but it sure does seem the same now that you mention it.

It's an old joke, and has been used before.
