Commercials you''re hating right now

I am so fucking sick of the Universal Studios King Kong ride commercial I want to hit someone. I swear to god they play this commercial on every channel during every commercial break. Probably limited to West Coast/SoCal viewers but here's a youtube link. What commercials are driving you nuts these days?

The one with the two hipsters standing in front of their car with a smart phone, the uglier one calling up the blond on the plane so she can unlock the car from her phone. This shit has been playing almost every commercial break in the Pittsburgh market for the past couple of weeks and it's really making me crazy. What is it with all these ugly hipster dudes in commercials lately?

The Swiffer (or is it Swifter) commercials with the people dressed up as dust and dirt waiting for love and being sucked up by the big duster - that whole campaign of commercials with the romantic theme of brooms and dusters being in love with people.... it's just stomach turning and stupid. Don't even get me started on Cealis and Viagra - what are those tubs for anyway?

The bearded, sunglasses-wearing hipster in the McDonald's commercial touting their soft drinks for a dollar. The douche is in nearly every shot and he gets on my nerves. I want to walk up to him and sucker punch him right in the stomach -- "Ooof!" Sunglasses flying off his head, cold drink cup flying, maybe slo-mo with the soft drink droplets flying through the air. Yeah, grievous harm definitely needs to befall this little dipshit!

When I went to see Harry Potter yesterday [insert complaint about commercials before movies here], there was this jaw-dropping advertisement for feminine wash, which was one of the most horrifically crude things I could imagine. It's not like they actually showed vadge, but they start off with this dusky voiced woman talking about something that is considered the source of life and something men have fought and killed over...

And segues to a woman in a pharmacy aisle holding a box of Summer's Eve. "So give it a little attention, ladies!" And it ends with the positively nauseating tag "Power to the V!"

Since I don't own a vagina, perhaps I don't get to have an opinion about this, but I found the message of the ad ("Your pussy stinks!") offensive, but I found the idea that this was being run in front of a movie that a bunch of parents were taking their KIDS to was even worse.

I loathe the commercials for Xfinity, where the family is being harrassed by their "U-verse bundle," which is a lump of ugly / scary wires and cords that talks.

That's fucked up, r43.

My most hated commercial at the moment is the one for some 4G technology of some kind. I don't know what it is because I don't pay it a bit of attention until an Asian tween girl starts bleating, "When I get oldah, I will be strongah..." Then I hear that mess looped in my brain for the next hour.

It's my own fault for watching digital subchannels, but on the Antenna TV local feed in NYC (channel 11.4) they constantly show a commercial for a product for Colon Flow, a pill to remove colon blockage. They graphically shows the buildup of fecal matter in your colon when you go several days without taking a shit (a graph that progresses showing the day-to-day fecal buildup), and then graphically shows what happens when you use this product and the several days of fecal buildup finally pass through the rectal tubes.

It's that and debt consolidators/tax negotiators/injury lawfirms/gold buyers and little else. Makes me not want to watch Benny Hill reruns while stoned.

R43 I don't think they should run that ad at a kids movie either, mostly because I think it's unethical to brainwash females at such a young age that everyday, natural scent is WRONG and girls MUST use this product that is totally unnecessary and can actually prevent the body doing its job properly, creating real problems.

I didn't see that ad when I went to see Potter this weekend, but I saw their print ad in a magazine, which inadvertently reminded the reader that for centuries women have attracted straight men (they used Helen of Troy as an example) without modern feminine products.

I read an article in the NY Times about this and other current commercials, The writer compared the Kahlua TV ad to the Old Spice ad with the hot black actor. The ads are nonsensical, but the attractive spokespeople suck you in.

I saw this new one for Tide this afternoon.

A prissy straight laced looking mom, who is sitting in a overly feminine living room, is bemoaning the fact that all her daughter wants to wear is hoodies and that the kid basically dresses like a boy.

She complains that the Tide took all the dirt out of the daughter's favorite clothes! Which meant she got to wear them again.

The daughter is sitting on the floor, in what appears to be khaki camouflage style hoodie, she appears to be building something. The scenario leads watchers to believe the mom is very upset because her daughter might be a lesbian!

It's clear the mother is upset because her daughter isn't feminine enough for her liking!

Huh? Why the hell am I "troll"?

The new Tide ad I saw today WAS homophobic and weird.

What the hell is happening to DL? It appears that people now come here, then throw around the word "troll' for no reason.

Here you go, moron!

Does Tide hate tomboys? In a confusing new detergent ad, Mom's tired of her daughter's dirty hoodies. But is that the real issue?

Detergent ads have never offered just a simple narrative of how to vanquish tough stains. After all, the ladies know that dirty, stinky fabric is a reflection of personal failure, a reminder of some heavy emotional baggage, and of course, your crappy parenting. But now, apparently, even when you get your child's clothes clean, you're still a mess.

"Well, we tried the whole pink thing," the prim mom in the prim cardigan chirps through gritted teeth, while her khaki-and-camouflage-clad daughter happily plays with her blocks. "Nope," she continues stiffly. "All she wants to wear is hoodies. Hoodies and cargo shorts. Getting dirty. Then she left some crayons in her pocket and they went through the wash. I thought all her clothes were ruined. Enter Tide and Tide booster. The stains are gone. It's kinda too bad." She sighs and looks wearily at her child. "Another car garage, honey? It's beautiful." Buy Tide, the detergent that will thwart your attempts at gender-conditioning your offspring!

Since debuting last month, the latest "My Tide" story has not been quite the epic failure of the recently pulled PMS milk ads or those talking vaginas. Yet the ad has been attracting increasing critical attention as the latest in a year of bizarre campaigns.

As New Civil Rights Movement asked, "Hey, Tide, What's Wrong With Girls Wearing Camouflage And Cargo Shorts?" The Frisky mused, "Tide Thinks Your Little Girl Is A Big Ol' Lesbian Because She Likes To Play With Blocks."

r193 -%0D %0D I see your point. Yours was my initial reaction (well, second to initial - see below) to the ad. But upon closer inspection, I was able to come around.%0D %0D The first time I saw the ad, I caught it midway, only in time to catch the hilariously performed punch line: "Another car garage, honey? It's beautiful!" (cue stressful smile). %0D %0D At first I laughed, thinking of that web site linked here a few months ago where gay people can post pictures from their childhood that totally gave away their gay selves from an early age. It also brought to mind the hilarious SNL spoof for Homocil (or whatever the name of that medicine was).%0D %0D Then I got offended - thinking "OK, this woman is clearly stressed out about her child's behavior and that sends a negative message about being a tomboy/subliminal lesbian."%0D %0D Then I finally saw the whole ad and - 1) remembering that it's one of a series of very personal, individual case stories 2) seeing how the mother's character was portrayed as extremely girly and loving of frilly decor - I realized it was a story contrasting characters from opposite sides of the spectrum with a humorous twist added. A mother-daughter Odd Couple of sorts.%0D %0D Not a representation of socially acceptable gender/sexual identifications vs. condemned ones. %0D %0D Why? Because the character portrayed as the one with the unstable behavior and quirky demeanor is clearly the mother, while the daughter plays away without a care in the world. Both individuals have extreme, unrelenting tastes, but only one of them is getting all bent out of shape.%0D %0D In other words - Tide can clean things for even the most ridiculous of obsessive-compulsive parents.%0D %0D Like your posted article says, it could be that Tide is reaching out to flawed people. It's actually a welcome break from the perfect all-American housewife behind the kitchen counter.

Dirty diaper commercial fittingly named America's worst ad of 2011

By Rick Porter; October 19, 2011 1:58 PM ET

Congratulations, Luvs. Or maybe not: The diaper maker's recent TV spot featuring animated babies competing in a poop-off has been named the Absolute Worst Ad in America for 2011.

The title comes courtesy of the readers of Consumerist, whose second annual poll named the "Poop, There It Is" spot -- which combines a silly premise with a doody-related cover of Tag Team's 1993 hit "Whoomp! There It Is."

The Luvs ad earned 32 percent of the vote in the poll, beating out an AT&T ad in which a woman uses her husband's act of signing up for unlimited mobile messaging as an excuse to air out her years of regret over their marriage. (On both counts, we are with the readers of Consumerist. Good choices.)

The poll also hands out dishonors for Most Grating Performance by a Human (AT&T's solitary flash-mobber beat out Flo from Progressive), Worst Abuse of an Existing Song (Heart's "What About Love" for Swiffer) and Trend That Needs to Stop Being a Trend (dudes who can barely stand their wives, as exemplified by Klondike and McDonald's).

Here is the, uh, winning Luvs commercial. What do you think of the poll's choices? Which ad do you hate most?

The latest offender is the new diamond engagement ring commercial, with Colby Caillat's "I Do" in the background: "You make me wanna say I do, I do, I do do do do do do do do!"

Knowing American women, this will probably become The Wedding Song for 2011-2012!

I have a brand new hated commercial; I just saw it during the World Series. It's the new Taco Bell chalupa ad, with that wannabe "wild-man" poseur, Brian Wilson (the baseball player, not the Beach Boy), and his stupid fucking beard. He's trying way too hard to "happen", with his wacky attention-grabbing antics, yet people buy into his obvious shtick.

“I see that not infrequently. UPS will leave it on your doorstep if you sign a release.”

Perhaps if you live in a nice suburb, where you can trust your neighbors, but never on an outside doorstep in an urban environment. Leaving a package delivery on an outside doorstep, is simply asking for your parcel to get stolen.

I live in a non-doorman co-op in NYC. The lobby door is locked, there is no buzz in system, the USPS and UPS have pass keys to get in. They both always leave parcels behind tenant’s doors. I’ve been in my building over 15 years, nothing have even been taken from behind my door.

I try to never use FedEx because they don’t have a pass key, plus they have bizarre delivery hours, in my area, their last delivery is 5 or 6PM. The few times I did use FedEx for pet supply deliveries, it took nearly 3 weeks to finally get my parcel because either I wasn't home and/or the locked lobby door problem. They actually left a card for me to pick up the parcel at their Queens depot! What’s the point in paying for a delivery service, then having to go pick up your parcel..?!!

Say what you want about the USPS, I’ve never had any problems with their deliveries!

She's actually a few other characters in the ad, one who resembles George Harrison during The Beatles hippy' peace/love era, complete with a wig, psychedelic clothes and moustache. Or she could be going for the Jason Schwartzmann look!

YES, I actually can see, and hear from her crap voice, that she's not a guitarist OR a singer. Don't be an ass. There must be ton of talented attractive women who sing who could have been hired, yet this chick gets the job?!

Perhaps she can actually play another instrument? Piano? Meat flute? Who fucking knows, though it's pretty clear the chick is tone deaf in the singing department.

I used to photograph rock concerts for a living, so I think I can remember how real musicians play their instruments. I don't recall any electric guitarist strumming their instrument, strumming is usually reserved for acoustic guitars.

r408- you do realize that she had no say-so of what guitar she uses- the client picks them out for their looks. And she appears to be actually doing some chord changes on the fret- most of the time they randomly slide their hand up and down without any fingering.

75% of products used on what you see in commercials/tv/film will be chosen for its looks, rather than what its proper usage. I'm always amazed at that- I'll see something that is climbing or surfing related, and it'll be all wrong (and completely unsafe in real life).

And I've worked on several of the commercials that been mentioned in this thread.

What's the deal with the Cancer Center commercials? Are the people in these ads actors and actresses?

It seems the current ads, showing an attractive blond woman, with Stage 4 breast cancer, Jane and her husband Eduardo, are the SAME people who are going to be on upcoming episode of the BIOGRAPHY series "I Survived" or whatever it's called.

They were supposedly held hostage for a huge ransom and Eduardo was threatened with a needle filled with HIV tainted blood.

But I still have eternal hate for Progressive Insurance's Flo, with her hair bump and kabuki makeup. Each subsequent commercial featuring her gets less and less funny.

Aside from the beyond annoying, beyond over-played "Rock-God" commercial...

That stupid commercial, with the "Did you just check your phone?" / "What am I, a 'summoner' who can just SUMMON a game to his phone??"

Ugh. That too is grossly over-played.

And is anyone else getting annoyed at all the commericals with the "dumb guy, shrew girlfriend" scenario?

SLOW MOTION FOOD. Why is it that so many commericals for food products have to show the food falling or bouncing in slow motion? Why do they think it will make you more likely to buy it? It's annoying mostly because it's so pervasive.

Food in slow motion reminds me of bad early '80s porn. They would always do the cum shots in blurry slow motion.

Then he or she in turn does some equally minor deed... Everyone except for the blind woman. She just waits around for everyone to do things for her.

Even worse is that Cottonelle had offered FREE toilet roll covers LAST Fall through their silly TV commercials. Cottonelle have yet to honor their fucking offers. Now they are offering the rolls for a charge and UPC codes.

The FREE holders campaign did ask for UPC codes, then, the company never honored their Free Offer, a ton of consumers never received the covers.

[quote]The most recent (I think) State Farm commercial when the guy is talkiing to a rep and the dialog is like, "can you give it to me?"; "yes, I can give it to you now", etc., etc. We GET it! A previous commercial with the "Jake from State Farm" dialogue was much funnier and made the point already.

Actually you don't GET it at all. A previous commercial did not make the point already. You're just talking out of your ass and it's embarrassing. In this commercial, they were both reciting lyrics to a song and then said that they shared a [name of band] moment. Then they started talking about the 1983 concert from that band. It was NOTHING like the other commercial where the premise was that the wife thought the husband was talking to a mistress.

Stephanie "Flo" Courtney is forty years old, has been in Mad Men, and has done a lot of stage work.

As for how much she makes, I think it's $104 per market every time the commercial airs. In other words, about $3 zillion a year.

I don't think she's worried about other work. Commercials are among the most lucrative of all acting gigs at that level.

by Anonymousreply 53503/14/2012

Well, most of them... as virtually any negative character in a commercial is: White, Male or the father. The damned dancing ad you're all face-farting about - of course the dumbass is the white guy. Moms are all super smart, as are their little shits - uh - kids. The clumsy, dumbass, insulting, angry, embarrassing characters are white males. They are also the weenies, shown to cower as their boss-bitch wife PWNS them in front of store clerks, usually females, with that fucking "Poor stupid male asshole" look on their face. Just loving the ad where the three...WHITE assholes play with their smartphones (the ad itself makes you want to kill someone), but of course the sensible black female co-worker looks on, baffled. And well just fuck you SWIFFER for your ads where ONLY white people are the DUST and DIRT to be cleaned up. Check the Kraft Mac & Cheese ads on YouTube - the dads are all white thieving bastards, STEALING their kids' food. And check out on YouTube: "Mac and Cheese - Father and Son" - Shows a dad having a great day with his son and being treated with respect by his wife. GUESS what race the family is? Fuck You Kraft. And O...M...G... how can so many white actors sell-out to portray their own race this way? You must be so proud of your work. Fucking whores.

You honestly BELIEVE it's a hidden camera and not a real commercial with an actress and an actor?! I feel sorry for you.

It's a commercial meant to LOOK like a hidden camera situation.

There is NO reality in TV any longer, there are very few shows like "Candid Camera" anymore. Even the Animal Planet documentary shows are scripted somewhat.

For those who hate the commercial where everyone pulls out their tablets/pads and makes fun of the guy with the pencil, I teach college classes. The other day, I was talking through the schedule for the next couple of weeks. While I went through the schedule, everyone is furiously inputting the info in their electronic calendars and one of my students is writing it down with pen and paper. All the students using their electronic devices kept asking me: what did you say was happening the week of the 26th, I missed what you said about this day, etc. Meanwhile, the student who was using the pen, just looked at me and smiled because he was able to write it all down when I said it, while everyone else was furiously trying to input it and not getting it correct.

I always thought the annoying blond in that Kotex ad was the same annoying brunette whining about needing jeans in the eBay commercial. is it?

The eBay commercial is the one where the mom offers her daughter some ugly 'mom jeans' from her "jean bin", then the whiny daughter tells her mom she already bought the jeans she wanted on eBay. I want to strangle that woman.

If it's not the same women, it sure SOUNDS and LOOKS like her. I thought it was the Kotex blond in a brunette wig.
