Mayflower Moving Company : A Very Creepy Commercial

Is is just me or am I being too critical about the Mayflower moving commercial? It opens with a bunch of Mayflower moving guys manipulating a giant wooden puppet of a young woman.

What is Mayflower trying to convey?

1) Their customers are puppets on strings, for their easy manipulation?
2) Their customers are dumb as wooden puppets?
3) Their customers look creepy?
4) Their moving guys like looking up the skirt of a giant wooden puppet as they walk it down the street.

What does a gigantic wooden puppet have to do with moving your personal belongings?
If the advertising company dreamed this one up, then they get a big fat F.
If the Mayflower advertising team pushed this concept, then they need to be transferred to accounting so they can see what little effect this commercial has on the Mayflower bottom line.

This is a really creepy, poorly conceived commercial that has absolutely nothing to do with Mayflowers core services. This one needs to go back to the drawing board.
