I swear, I heard this on tv here today:
".. so if you or somebody you know has committed suicide, call..."



Some really stupid lawyer ad.

Wait a minute - if *you* or someone you know ... ? Wow, if you were successful at it, you wouldn't be watching this commercial. Oy.

My favorite one was while I was flipping channels many years ago, and the late Mother Angelica was on EWTN, and it went something like: "If you know someone who may be contemplating suicide, and you don't know how to talk to them, please send for my free pamphlet. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery". Um....I hope they weren't serious about it......

I believe you saw a ad for a pending class action lawsuit that has been filed against one of the pharmacutical companies. I believe the phrase you heard was "if you have attempted suicide or know someone who has while taking ******* please call.
