Stupid commercials...


Recommended Posts

Don't you just want to kick that befuddled-looking dufus right in the a~~: you know, the guy in the white shirt standing on the escalator moving in the wrong direction in that Roger's cellphone commercial. Better yet, will somebody please kick him down the &%$#@ steps! :o

And how about the Glad Bags ad with those lamest of lame "bank robbers" who stand there like absolute morons while some stupid female bank clerk stuffs everything except the kitchen sink into their sacks? How dumb is that? Is it supposed to amuse us somehow? I doubt if even a child could laugh at that one! :(

I'd like to know what in the world goes on in the minds of the advertising copywriters who get assigned to accounts like that. Are they on angel dust, quaaludes, or what? It's almost as if they deliberately concoct the most ridiculous scenarios just to annoy us. And the "actors" and "actresses" they use! C'mon, can't they find anyone better than that? Hmmm...maybe they can't! :P

Arrgh! :P

Your turn...

Leons.  Or should I call it, "Layons".  

The Rogers Ignite Wifi Hub commercial that features the guy saying "You can make mooo-Orr-orrre!"

Sonnet Insurance - The Information Superhighway We have a barely generecised IBM PS/2 running Windows 95 and an extremely early version of Netscape or NCSA Mosaic and the unmistakable sound of mo

I hated the old Alexander Keith's commercials where that scottish guy got indignant when someone did something with Alexander Keith's beer he didn't like. Come on, it's just beer! Thank god the actor who played that guy was arrested for child porn charges (I think), but I know he was arrested. :(

Another interesting commercial is the Alzimers commercial where the old guy buys a carton of milk. His wife takes it and puts it in the fridge which is full of milk cartons and a message says if you catch him forgetting, it's an early sign. I don't mind the ad, but it's just begging to be parodied (by the Royal Canadian Air Farce perhaps).

The Mini Wheats commercial, that song is so annoying.

My son's dad hates that commercial too. I have never heard it. I haven't watched T.V. at home for a few years, but I do get exposed to television whilst enjoying my favorite beverage in some of my favorite haunts. Most sports bars have sports channels on their t.V.s, and Kokanee and B.P. are very common (and annoying) commercials on these particular channels.

Wait until the end.

Sex sells for Ice Cream :P.

That looks like the same campaign as on transit ads that reads "It's like finding out all the hottest girls at school live in the same house!"

Forgive me, but I have no idea what that is supposed to do with ice cream. :(

It is based on this song. :o

And then there are the one's for Rickard's Red beer, where some bozo in a bar is suddenly surrounding by a coven of red-robed, singing, chanting, Satanists (?), or pretty suggestive of them! :P

So, what are to make of this? That we ought to drink the stuff because it will somehow give us the 'power of evil", or that it represents "breaking the rules of society" in some way?

Hell, I'll bet Catholics just love that one!

:o

Wait until the end.Sex sells for Ice Cream :o.If you notice in the new versions, they changed it. Probably because people complained.

Pretty tacky.

But if you think this is bad, you ought to see the ice cream ads in Australia, where just about every transit shelter billboard shows some hot babe looking suggestively at you--even one lying in the bathtub with an ice cream bar in her mouth. Ummm...not a place where one nornally eats ice cream, ya think?

Having said that, though, ads like this usually don't bother me.

It's the one's which feature some dweeb, nerd, or other dipsh!t person who looks totally out of place or does something against the obvious: like the one a few years ago for some anti-diarrhea drug where there's an idiot sitting in the aisle seat of a plane being constantly bothered by his window-seat neighbour with the runs who keeps motioning him to get up so the neighbour can rush to the john.

"Hey, stupid!", I'd scream. "Why don't you just switch seats, fer crissakes!" Arrgh! :(:P

... Same with me. Good thing its a US thing... Or is it... O_O I mean you can say it once and people getting it. But saying it like 10-15 times???????? :P Damnit, when I was watching that commercial, was really damn close to saying, "SOME ONE SHUT THAT STUPID LADY UP!!!! WE GET THE GODDAMN POINT!!!!" The one which people conplaining is just the brink of the iceberg.

The same company has another one about a different product (the bottle thing is red). Thank god they don't have a repeating phrase in this one.

Those of you in Ontario that get the Omni TV channels (Omni 1 & 2) might know these commercials. I hate the Family Guy Commercials they have, they made at least 23 different commercials. I hate
the most.

That was stupid.

there was a commercial for some cleaning product a while back, they were talking about kids, and one of the lines was "nobody knows the mess they make". every time I'd hear it I'd say "somebody must know, otherwise they dont need to clean it, and therefore, dont need to buy your stupid product!"

Truth be told, I've been taking good advantage of my remote's mute button whenever commercials come on.

But better than that, I usually tape a program and watch it later so I can fast-forward through it. That way, an hour program is reduced to only 45 minutes, and a two-hour movie ends up at 1 and a half hours! :)

I'll try to do something for about the first 6 minutes of a program... surf the internet, check email etc. Then I'll start watching the program that I've been recording... then fast foward through any commercials. That means I watch very few commercials there days, and yes, I get more stuff done!

That new commercial for the VW Jetta City Edition, which is basically the 2005 Jetta re-sold again in 2007. The two guys are in a car and a cop car with sirens shows up and they become all dramatic by having the guy say: "I stole this car...I only paid 14-9" and the passenger goes "Let me get out man, let me get out!" and then they realize the cops were just trying to pass cause they were slow. :)

Come on, 14-9? Ugh, the commercial wasn't funny either.

That's the only one I can think of now, if I have more I will post it later.
