I HAVE seen that! Oh my god, I forgot about that commercial until you brought it up...
Society has apexed.
We are now ready to ascend.
Someone has invented a device that cracks eggs for us. There is nothing else left in the materiel universe to explore.
But... cracking eggs is fun! How on earth can someone come up with such a stupid idea?
Cracking eggs, without ending up with shell in the mixing bowl, is difficult for people with arthritis or older people who are weak. This device seems silly to healthy people, but it is beneficial for some. I would buy it for my 80+ year old mother so she can remain independent.
How is that racist? I know a lot of stuff from American popular culture goes way above my head, but I don't see how that's actually offensive.
I can see how it would be annoying, but racist?
it's not particularly offensive (people would probably laugh it off, especially when they realize it's racist), but it is racist. grape soda (orange soda, too) and kool-aid are drinks that are somehow stereotypically something that black people like to drink. i don't really understand why, that's just how it is.
also, watermelon and fried chicken. i find food that stereotypically a black person would like really refers to what anyone from the south would like haha~ again, i'm not really sure how it's a 'black' thing though :/
Yeah, that's true... I guess I should think for a few seconds longer before I say something. Thanks.
Do you mean "least favorite" ?
For me it's either whenever there is a dubbed advert, I just don't see the point, if you value my country as a customer base create an advert just for us.
Specifically "We Buy Any Car"
It's just "We buy any car "dot com"x10 " then "any make any model any we buy any car (x5) from fifty quid to a hundred grand! we buy any car .com (x5) any any any any any any"
It's done in a really annoying voice with terrible music and bad animation.
#1= A commercial about toilet papers that feature two cartoon bears (one blue and another pink) and they're walking around holding the toilet paper, rubbing it against their faces and acting like it's the best thing they've ever experienced.
#2= The new McDonalds commercials. Ugly, loud, and horrid. I remember a time when McDonalds commercials used to to be a lot more calmer and actually protrayed the "family" it claimed to protray.
Anything on acai berries. I freelance write and think they have some merit, but I get tired of writing about them over and over... anytime I see something else on acai berries I gag.
I hate Walmart commercials. I'm just going to throw that out there.
And Staples commercials, but that could just be because I work at OfficeMax.
Is that not the best line!! hahaha
Now, for the topic...I hate those "male enhancement" commercials. When they come on, I turn down the volume. That guy just annoys me with that stupid grin.
Car dealership commercials get turned off, too. We have a local guy here and his twin daughters are on my last nerve. I swear, you can't get away from them. They are sitting on billboards and plastered on the city buses.
Especially when you consider the meaning behind the idiotic grin. So stupid. I mean, I get the concept, but you can have a commercial like that without idiotic grinning people.
I hate the Cialis commercials too, mostly because of the bathtubs. What couple is going to lug two giant bathtubs outside, to a beach or the woods or some godforsaken place, fill them with water and sit in them seperately, holding hands? What does that have to do with sex? At least the Viagra commercials make more sense, but they're annoying too with the song they always play.
Don't even get me started on Head-On (APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD!).
There are some excellent commercials though--the Superbowl 43 Doritos commercial ("crystal ball" one, remember ) is hilarious. Superbowl commericals are always reliably excellent.
I HATE those Head-On commercials. The one I think I hate most is the Yogurt commercial, when the chicklet grabs a container and opens it, sucking out the yogurt, she then licks her lips and smiles. I seriously want to pop her right in the teeth, I don't know what it is about that commercial but it always makes me angry.
Come on now! Smilin' Bob is hilarious!
Career Builder Superbowl 43 commercial. The greatest thing.
I wanna make this my avatar.
Remember the thread topic, please.
Horrible commercial: The Jack in the Box commercials. My area doesn't even HAVE a Jack in the Box. And do they really think I'm going to buy food from a creepy man with a round white head and pointy black nose? No thanks......
The commercials I like to title: "The Mopey Old Mop".
Basically, the commercials advertise a new mop that does all kinds of new things the old mop doesn't, and the way they do it is by treating the old mop like a ditched boyfriend and its "singing" love songs to the human woman who's using the new mop.
So ANNOYING!! >:c(
^ Swiffer commercials. Yeah, I hate them too.
Why don't people make good commercials any more??? The only good commercial time is the Super Bowl. People aren't going to buy your product if you make them hate you.
There is actually one Walmart commercial I thought was really funny. Some little girl is having a birthday party and her dad dressed up as a clown. When he comes into the room he steps on a toy unicorn and stabs himself in the foot, and starts screaming and freaking out. It was funny for some reason.
But what I hate the most are these local commercials we get for Airport Plaza Jewlers. It has this fat guy with a mustache and his daughter(wife?) who is very greasy and gross. She randomly dresses up in a chicken suit and says "I buy it!!!" over and over again. It is SO ANNOYING.
All the commercials for eHarmony or Match.com or any other dating web site. Why do advertisers think that if they show couples hugging in slow motion, I'll want to try their web site? The scripts are rehearsed enough to make me gag anyway --I do not need to see it in slow motion.
And the Old Navy mannequin commericials bother me too.
