Commercials you're hating right now - the sequel

The other thread is full and it's my only thread to ever reach 600 replies.

I'll start again with the PSA about home ownership with the grandfather and grandson sitting on the porch. The little kid is from the school of 80s child actors who think they're cute but are just obnoxious. Doesn't piss me off as much as King Kong but still irritating.

The ad for Optimum WiFi where the guy is on the train platform on his laptop and the guy next to him is complaining how he's over his limit on his provider. I hate the way the guy won't turn his head and look at the guy - he keeps looking at him out of the corner of his eyes. It makes the one guy look crazy.

a promo for Hook, Line and Sinker (something like that). It always comes on abrubtly on Cooking channel. This dork singing "I'm goooinnng fiiiisshiing" with a goober smile on his face, playing a banjo. That's it just those three words make up the song! It always springs up on me and that stupid song sticks in my head. Once I manage to forget that dumb song, BAM!!, the promo comes on again.

The "don't use cell" is a great message, but maybe another commercial with different fucking actresses and father could be done; the more, the merrier.

I think it's interesting when commercials "change" after they are released, presumably because of negative reaction.

For example, the cell phone commercial where the mom and daughter are so tearful they need subtitles has been changed so that you can now understand them - no subtitles.

Another one I can think of recently is the Citibank commercial about the female rock-climber. Originally she was shown climbing with some inane verbage about her boyfriend and shopping. Now all they show is a shorthened version which focuses on her skill.

Similar to R86, what's the deal with companies modifying their original campaign to accomodate new ones even if the fit is awkward? I'm thinking of the Capitol One bank ads. Years ago, the barbarians were the joke--they were the physical representation of how bank fees "rape and pillage" your wallet. Now they costar with Alec Baldwin in ads and make jokes about traveling together to Hawaii.

Will they ever retire the barbarians? Why do companies hold on so tightly to themes that have lost their original intent?

Any car commercial. I'm old enough (yes, probably could be considered an eldergay) when commercials used to simply tell you what the manufacturer's models had and the gas mileage. Now ads either show you cars speeding on ice lakes or seas of fire, driving up walls or backwards at 200 miles per hour -- all with the disclaimer "Profession driver on a closed course. Do not attempt." -- or they are so stupid such as one of the latest where one group of car dealers phone a competitor and then giggle.

Yeah, R86 -- so much for focus groups, if they react well to an ad that the public then hates.

The Boursin cheese ad suddenly started having new dialogue. The husband used to say that he bought the cheese because samples were being offered by a "nice lady" who's blonde -- now he tells his brunette wife that he bought it because it looked good, though "not as good as you". Do wives really long to be told that they look better than a lump of spreadable cheese (with or without herbs & garlic)?

Saw a commercial today that was sad and embarrassing. It was a travel company; they dug up Eddie Money from some homeless shelter to sing "Two Tickets to Paradise".

The toilet paper commercial with the bears where Mama Bear is sorting the laundry and is shocked when she holds up a pair of her son's underwear. I'm assuming that the ad is implying he doesn't wipe properly and left skid marks (either that or Mama Bear just discovered a nacreous layer of cum). Making the commercial even worse is when Mama and Son Bear walk into the living room where Papa is bent over and they can see his ass.

The Honda commercial with Jason volunteering to help Santa deliver toys and ending up in restraints and gagged with Santa snapping a whip and telling him to stop complaining 'you asked for it'. This is appropriate for Christmas viewing. It makes me cringe every time I see it. Just slightly worse than the elf smashing the candy cane into shards as a weapon to fight a salesman whoe job it is to be helpful. What on earth is Honda thinking?

My late mother put me through prep schools in NYC with a tape-transcription service. People were warning her since the 1970s that this would put her out of business, yet she lost her first existing client (in addition to the new ones she didn't get) the year she retired.

The software is very useful for people who are disabled, who don't spell so well, or who don't want to pay a typist/transcriptionist a mint. This also saves money for all the corporations and government offices freed from those huge invoices people like Mom used to send them.

The Weight Watchers ad where the formerly fat and the newly thin selves talk to each other. They are both crying and commiserating as if dropping 30 lbs is the same as recovering from stage 4 cancer.

The cereal ad where the parents are deathly afraid of their son.

Mom: Ugh, I forgot to get Jack's cereal. Oh god, what are we gonna do? OMG, here he comes.

Jack: What the fuck is for breakfast, cunts?

Dad: Try the, uh, Number One cereal. Oh god, please don't kill us. Please spare us. Wait, you like it? Oh thank god.

The Dior commercial featuring Charlize Theron with high pitched vocals of a screeching Beth Ditto - she only screeches at the very end - - I turn the channel or mute it- sounds like a bag of cats, very annoying - I hate it, cannot listen to it and this is a very replayed commercial

I actually thought at first that she was a satire and was going to be an anti-Obama commercial of some kind. She seems so odd.

The Cheerios commercial that shows the two black kids, one of whom is stealing his brother's cereal and whose dad jovially calls him the Cheerios Bandit. This is followed by a mother "teaching" the kid to eat Cheerios. This is how I learned... and now YOU!" like the kid just wrote War and Peace.

So Cheerios? Black people support their children stealing and white people gently and supportively teach them to eat?

How bout where that douche guy walks into his friend's apartment, his three friends are fighting over a plate of wings. But Mr. Cool? He just pulls out his burrito, see? And he watches those poor suckers fight for wings while he can enjoy his own delicious - and more importantly: practical - game time meal.

How often do you walk into your friend's apartment without saying a word, only to shake your head at them condescendingly? I'd kick the asshole out!

Corona commercial:

The chick snowboards down the run, at the bottom of which is a man sitting in one of TWO chairs, with a stump between them, drinking beer.

HER: "Know what my favorite run of the day is?"

HIM: "The last one?"

WHO THE FUCK LET THEM BRING THEIR CHAIRS RIGHT TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SKI RUN? Not to mention sitting in them and getting drunk!? You can't do that! I've never skied but there's no way that guy doesn't get rammed by confused skiers.

Couple of my irritants listed here. The Gwen Stefani one R528 mentions -- Yes Gwen, "This shit is bananas" is the work of a gifted lyricist. It may be hard but the rewards for the public are so worth it. You hang in there.

Also, the "asshole adult" and kids round table meetings (thanks for the term R524), kids don't talk like that. Adults write like that though.

There is one for a car company where they talk about "bravery" and "inspiration" that annoys me. It's a friggin' car you morons - where does bravery fit into it?

Relax, it's just a commercial. It doesn't have to make sense. Do you get this bent out of shape when you see a talking cartoon bee too? You can't do that! I've never seen a cartoon come to life off of my cereal box and talk to me.

I don't think it's scripted. Kids can't act that well or fake spontaneity. Just look at the AT&T U-Verse commercials to see how bad scripted kid acting is. "And if mom, uh, wants to watch her ,uh, stupid shows and dad, uh wants to watch his, uh, dumb shows, then by George that's all we watched. And we liked it."

Cottonelle has a new ad that shows a bear sitting on the toilet (they only show it from the chest up). He's unwound a length of tissue in preparation to wipe, but then rubs the delightful toilet paper against his face cause it's so soft. He has a look of bliss.

It cuts to his bear wife calling out to him from the living room, in a cheerful but informative voice, to remind him that he doesn't need to use so much.

So many things that make me grind by teeth: bear on the toilet; bears in a home; the bears are blue; bear wife lounging on the sofa and being a condescending bitch...

Dollars direct. The commercial with the guy at the pay day loan store. The cashier makes fun of the guys id, which isn't even awful while the whole store laughs. The argument is that getting an online loan is better than at a store which may be true but getting laughed at for your id is an unrealistic selling point and insulting to intelligence. Not to mention the dumb country singing asshole narrating the whole thing

The Chase ad with the guy singing about getting cash back .."every body get..." EEEEEK I want to vomit, he's so smarmy! The 'trying to be hip' pose is what drives me nuts.

"I'm in NY and there's an ad for this new community/village called "Jackson 21". It's a combo of stores, restaurants, apartments.

The ad's pitchman looks like he should be in a hospice. He's 75-ish, with white wispy hair, age spots everywhere. He ends the commercial saying "if you're not a nice person, don't call for info"."

The old guy is actually Mitch Leigh, he was involved in writing the musical version of "Man of La Mancha". Next time the ad is on, take notice of the "Man of La Mancha" poster behind him,.

Mitch also wrote the very memorable TV commercial tune, "Nobody Doesn't Like Sara Lee"!

The pig is cute/funny in the other commercial where he's on the plane, but this one, with the bizarre message that a human female wants to be romantically involved, which would lead to literally fucking the pig, is VERY creepy!

That ad, and the one with Deion Sanders pretending to be a young phenom named Leon Sandcastle, really are aimed at sports fans.

The new Planet Fitness ads with the roided out guy getting his "burn on" and the other PF ad with the fake titted bimbos telling each other how "hot" they are.

The concept is good, they are trying to tell the public that Planet Fitness is not about seeing a bunch of preening narcissists every time you go there, unfortunately, the commercials are really annoying, as was their old commercial with the guy showing off his six pack.
