The cruise line commercials with the "Bang on de drum all day" soundtrack. Song isn't that bad, but the slo-mo shots of the hideous father dancing and jumping around while the daughter blows a huge gum bubble is somehow disturbing.

From the insurance world:
1) The Liberty Mutual commercial with everyone cooing at each other's "good deeds". Nauseating, and completely ridiculous. And I still don't really know what kind of insurance Liberty Mutual offers or how (or why) I would get it.
2) The State Farm commercial (I think it's State Farm, might be Allstate) with "Jerry Newman." In addition to being completely annoying, I am irritated by the plot of the commercial. What do we know?
-- Jerry has a penchant for accidents. -- He calls State Farm. Jessica of State Farm says "sorry, nope". -- He was a prior State Farm customer, and apparently a longtime fan of Jessica's; nonetheless HE LEFT STATE FARM. This is no small point. Why did he do this? It remains a mystery, but something satisfied customers don't do. -- State Farm for some reason is interested in wooing Jerry back, despite Jerry being the very worst kind of insurance customer (ie someone who will file multiple claims).
Overall I think it is very bizarre to have an entire ad campaign centered around someone you refuse to help. What is meant to be? A lecture? A threat? Ugh.

Two different bowel movement-related ads that I'm not a fan of...
1. The cartoon bears for Charmin toilet paper that show the bears complaining about the stuff falling apart and sticking their butt. Hate it.
But in Charmin's defense, since they are trying to point out that their product is better because it doesn't fall to pieces when you are wiping, I can't think of a less uncomfortable way to handle it than with cartoon bears. Maybe for their next version they could show the bear getting shit on his fingers when the bear family saves money on a cheaper brand that rips while wiping. That would really drive the message home.
2. The Metamucil ad where the crazy-eyed lady talks about how psyllium fiber "gels to remove unsexy waste."
Why does she have to use the word 'unsexy' to refer to fecal matter? Is it necessary to clarify that shit is not usually titillating (no offense intended to the scat fans here)? There are plenty of other adjectives they could have chosen, or better yet, just call it 'waste.' Not sexy or unsexy.
|by Anonymous||reply 52||04/15/2012|
Jon Stewart did a thing about the Charmin bear ad some time ago.
It was -- I think -- about the fact that some gay-related ad (not sexual at all) had been refused by a network as being too explicit. Stewart correctly pointed out the network ran the ads that showed a cartoon bear with shitty toilet paper stuck to its ass and didn't worry about it being too explicit.

It also appears that Mrs. Whitley and her doctor haven't paid their electric bills! In both scenes, in the doctor's office and in her house where she is just about to tell her kids she's dying, these scenes appear to be shot almost in the dark! I have never been in a doctor's office where I have to strain my eyes to see him or her.

R115, Heidi's commercial is for "CLEAR" a new Unilever line of hair care products for men and women. Clear is actually a pretty good product.
Most conditioners should not be put on the scalp, Clear's conditioners are meant to be used on the scalp.
I guess the copy in the add is all fucked up? Heidi's "wrong end" comment is basically saying, people have been using conditioners just on the ends of their hair, because that's what most hair stylists have told their clients,
CLEAR can be used safely on the scalp, without the usual irritation connected with using a conditioner on a scalp. According to what type of scalp problem you might have, there are different types of shampoos and conditioners to help those problems.

I swear, the people working at ad agencies today must be smoking crack and shooting up heroin during working hours, there are very few memorable or fun commercials being produced these days.
They are coming up with the lowest common denominator type of print ads and TV commercials, they are not even using composers to come up with jingles for the products being advertised!
Their lack of vision and talent shows in their constant use of already recorded pop songs!
Perhaps the ad agency people need to go back to drinking..!!!

There's a new commercial which has been aired relentlessly for the past few weeks, it's for house deck paint. The way the actor pronounces 'deck', it sound as if he's saying DICK! I
It's hilarious, you hear the guy saying 'dick' over and over again, in the context of the rest of the ad copy, it's pretty bizarre.

I loath that commercial. Why the hell is she tapping her nose with her used cereal spoon?
The other commercial I think is stupid is also a cereal one. Where the woman walks into what looks like a company break-room, sees a bowl of Lucky Charms and eats them. Why in hell would you start eating another person's cereal? Does she even know if they had already been eating it and it has their saliva in it? UGH

You select your doctor, and he sends you to his preferred hospital. In an emergency you go to the closest hospital. Those commercials just drive up the cost of health care.
