There is a 95X here in Syracuse (95.7 WAQX), but I haven't seen the 
commercial in question. The latest 95X ads I've seen on TV show
a few people saying something like "Yeah, I like 95X," and then a 
fifth person say, "It sucks." Then a voice-over says, "Well, 4 out
of 5 isn't bad." or something to that effect--definitely not as
classy as a spot of Pete in the climax of WGFA. 

As a side-note, their bus ads are simply a picture of 95X upside


P.S. Was that new Who stuff just a cruel joke?
