This is one of the dumbest commercials I've ever seen. After watching it on TV more than a dozen times, I still don't know what the point is. If you let Xerox handle your business, your customers will not have access to the restroom facilities? It sounds like the Xerox people are on the phone making reservations. Isn't that the sort of thing a business would like to control itself? It gives you a better idea of what your customers want when you actually talk to your customers, doesn't it? And the "Can I help you" Xerox lady just points him in the wrong direction and locks the door on him. Yes, that's really how I want my customers to be treated.

Or is the point that the people in the lavatory are the original customer support people, and if they were Xerox people instead, the customer WOULDN'T have been standing in the aisle trying to hold it?

Nothing about this commercial makes sense. Who pays for crap like this?
