The car insurance company’s spot says (paraphrasing) that if you’re still in bed when the radio tells you an accident has blocked your usual route to work, you could stay there or go to the company’s website for information on alternate routes.
Too much traffic? Just stay in bed. How that for an option?
What makes the spot a recurring irony is that it’s voiced by the show’s anti-rail host, who will never acknowledge Honolulu rail’s role as a travel option to avoid congestion on Honolulu’s main east-west routes.
Freeway accidents like the one pictured at right won’t affect commuters riding on the Honolulu rail system’s elevated guideway. Rail will be the better option to staying in bed, and it won’t get you fired.

If there’s a good reason to miss work, that might be it.
