(KUTV) PC Laptops is known for its funny and attention-grabbing commercials.

CEO Dan Young says he made more serious commercials until "Super Dell" Schanze from Totally Awesome Computers made a suggestion.

"He actually said to me, 'You should made really dumb commercials, because the dumber, the better,'" Young said.

He was embarrassed about them at first.

"I tried it a little bit and it worked," Young said.

When Totally Awesome Computers closed down, Young actually hired some of its employees and took on customers.

Young says his silly commercials are a way to educate, entertain, and make people smile.

"I'm not shy about letting people know I want to sell them computers," he said.

The commercials also often with the exclamation, "We love you!"

Young got that from his mother.

She told him to "treat everyone how you treat me."

And now that's what he tells his employees to do as well.

"That's in our sales training meeting: treat everyone like your mom," he said.
