Stupid commercials...

Recommended Posts

Two more commercials to add to the list:

1. On YOutube, the commercials with people practicing opening a gift from Staples/Bureau en Gros of people opening imaginary gifts and looking astounded. To make it even stupider, Youtube is continuing to air these ads after Christmas! You really don't need 363+ days to practice. <_<

2. Earlier today I saw an ad for Presidents Choice about #eat_together which was absurdly long and didn't get to the point after most of the song "I got You Babe" played.

I've seen in the two Imagine Cinemas ads for a woman who works in real estate with an animated boy who is supposed to be her son telling viewers of his mom's awards, pretty much saying "If you want to buy or sell a house, call my mom".

Would you trust a kid when looking for a real estate agent?

The SearchKings radio advert telling you about "bad words" like "Oh, Sugar!", "Sonoma Beach!" and "That's Bolshevik!".

What's more interesting that the radio advert and the Wayfair TV advert? This (I wonder if we have any board members who uses a Yoga computer?):

And speaking of Yogas, here's something even crazier they did when they were still pushing out Windows 8 PCs.

Since this thread hasn't been active for some time, I've decided to tell everyone that there's that one commercial that features a giant guy in that "ULTRA" instant scratch ticket commercial. It reminds me of something from the "Jolly Green Giant". 

I also saw a commercial from Bell (a telecom company in Canada) in which people from around the world - reacts on how Toronto has the fastest internet. It features scenes from Australia, India, England and Italy!

I would imagine if there was a commercial dubbed in French with the same topic (or something like that)...

(a French couple hangs out at a mountain top)
French wife: Wow! Montreal has the fastest internet ever!
French husband: You serious?
(an American cowboy and cowgirl hanging out at the salloon)
American Cowboy: With blazing speeds, partner! We couldn't get that out in the wild west!
(A Hispanic Couple at a Mexican Restaurant)
Hispanic woman: Download a salsa tune in seconds? Andale Andale!
Hispanic Man: Montreal is going Arriba Arriba!
(A pair of German men at a pub)
German man: They say it's a breath-taking speed of light!
(A couple in their condominium with their kids hanging out and viewing their devices throughout their living space)
VO: With speeds at 1.5Gbps, Pure Fibre internet from Bell is truly the fastest in internet technology.
(Scene cuts back to a French couple hangs out at a mountain top)
French Wife: We should visit Montreal.
French Man: Of course.

Anyone else getting irritated by the Dempsters Pull-Apart ads?

I personally never seen that ad, but it may not be as irritated - as that ad that that features that guy from Freedom Mobile about their Big Binge Bonus promo (or something like that).

Not as irritating as those "Nuggetiquette" commercials from McDonalds - something to do about "the right way to eat Chicken McNuggets". That ad is not the "law", however!

I'm nominating the McCain's (forget what product, which is NOT what the commercial is supposed to do) where some kid is rambling on at the table about some stuffed Mr Cat...
