PCMatic. NO WAY this cheesy product protects computers the way they say it does. And their chief spokesperson dresses like a bum runs all his words together and exudes absolutely NO credibility. Neither does the legion of 'tech' people whose faces pop up to chime in on what a great, powerful, protective product it is. The inventor guy looks like he sat in his garage and strung together something made out of aluminum foil and a used JiffyPop and packaged it up as some kind of cyber security. It's maddening. The commercial, production-wise, is on a par with Popeil's Pocket Fisherman. Cheap.

I'm with R13. That is pure shit all around, the jingle has found itself stuck in my head on many occasions (much to my fury), the moms are intermittently lip-syncing along to said jingle (some do, some don't), the kids alternate between exchanging glances and thinking mom is nuts, to dancing around their living rooms with glee and excitement...it is just shit. Inconsistent, intelligence-bashing SHIT. And way too earnest--no way was this thought up as some send-up of an 80s advert.

I will also add that commercial for I don't know what that has two ladies in the driver's and passenger's seat dressed in green, I think, pretending to "rap." When it comes on I have to leave the room so I cannot recall what it's even trying to fucking promote.

Can someone explain to me what the wife's issue is with the husband cleaning a fish on her kitchen counter? A WOOD counter, no less, so he's not leaving marks with a knife. Isn't that what the counter is for? Instead, she sighs and looks perturbed and they are selling us Lysol to clean up the "mess", whatever it is. (The fish is even intact at that point).

There's also a dental commercial, maybe more local, with an actor with blinding white teeth -- and it seems he's been directed to talk with them exposed. So his big tongue lies there, trying not to get chomped on. He sounds lispy too as a result. Anyone else seen this? Cute Noah Wylie type guy but weird effect and probably not his fault.

It may be a local(ized) thing but it's impossible to miss in daytime TV: the ad for Harrah's Casino somewhere in a Carolina that features the hetero couple from Hell (he's a lug, she's a twit though the actress s at least attractive, even without makeup) having a boring "date night" with another boring couple -- and then imagining what it will be like at Harrah's the next week. "Action!" "Relaxing!" "Steak!" And then the goonie blockhead male gets caught up in his fantasy and is throwing popcorn all over the room as everyone watches in faux dismay.

But the best part is when he looks at his girl and smiles/smirks and there is the grossest strand of pure saliva connecting a top tooth to a bottom tooth. They couldn't reshoot it to get a spit free take?

Zillow has an ad that uses a dead mother and a little boy to sell houses. The dad and sad boy look at houses on the computer, later boy looks at a star out of the window and says that the brightest one is "Mom".

Next scene is the father tucking the boy into the bed of their new home; the boy looks out of a skylight, sees the same bright star and says "goodnight mom". Was that necessary?

My latest peeve has a loud, obnoxious guy holding up the line at the pharmacy because "This isn't VIAGRA-brand VIAGRA. I really don't want generic VIAGRA. I prefer VIAGRA-brand VIAGRA. It has to be VIAGRA-brand VIAGRA." Then he turns to the people behind him and says, "Sorry to inconvenience you, but I want to make sure I have real VIAGRA-brand VIAGRA."

I always want the woman behind him to be equally loud (perhaps doing an impressions of Madeline Kahn doing Marlene Dietrich) and say, "Tehk yeuh time, Misteh FLAWPEE!" But she never does, so I do it myself.

R134, I am not following your questions about a computer. I didn't mention one in my post.

As I said, when the commercial begins, they're "dressed like" it's 1982. That's clearly the intentional-- their clothes and hair are like what you'd see on The Americans. Let's say the early 80s.

As the kid ages in the commercial, it shows him on a smartphone, where he's around 18. The commercial further progresses to show the kid, a few years later, graduating with his dad. My point was that someone born in the early 80s wouldn't have a smartphone -- not saying a regular old cellphone, but a smartphone back then.

The antiperspirant commercial with the ugly, hook-nosed chick in a pink blouse, airing out her armpits in her car while waiting for an online date to meet her. She's talking to herself as if talking with him, and then starts a spastic, sputtering rap with his name. Apparently she's not certain of his name and alternates between Brendan and Brandon. All the while, she's got her arms out so her sleeves catch the air from the car's AC. The guy--far too cute for her--approaches the car, and catches witch-face in Miss rant. She, mildly embarrassed, says "Brandon?" He corrects her. "Brendan." Then says he'll see her in the restaurant. Some VO about deodorant follows.

The actual Untuckit shirts are pretty expensive. I think there's another company that also specializes in similar shirts and, again, fairly expensive. I'm surprised there's not TJ Maax grade knockoffs since I don't think you can patent a shorter length shirt. It's actually a good idea or casual wear, but there's obviously still plenty of situations where you probably need to be tucked.

The whole ad is just unsettling - two stone faced dudes selling a funky drink but I guess it works cause I'm a little curious to taste this crap.

I was curious who penned the song, thinking maybe Justin had writer credit and allowed use of the song and also being in it would benefit that way. None of the band members wrote the song; does Justin need money due to his non-existent career? It's a guess on my part that he financed this company hoping to be another 50 Cent, who owns/owned some of Vitaminwater or his career tanked and he gotta do whatever to pay the bills.

Here's a rant about commercials in general - they are everywhere!

I recently got a Roku and found out that the "channels" on it are plagued with commercials too. I can understand that the major established networks like FX, TNT, etc. would want to get revenue from all outlets, but it was a downer to see ads there. There may be even more ads on the Roku than on regular TV. I've added some random channels not affiliated with network TV (ex. tubitv) and even they subject viewers to 1-5 ads before the movie/show starts. Yeesh.

What's with the bimbo who buys a girly cake for a baby shower, is surprised to be told that the baby will be a boy, & is able to exchange the cake at the last minute, whew!!? Who orders a sex-specific cake without asking about the baby first? The odds are 50/50, just take a chance?

And what does this have to do with the kind of car she's driving?

[quote]The Ring doorbell commercials where the homeowners are total asses to the people they see. "What I need is for you NITWITS to get off my lawn!!!"

Yes! I hate those smug homeowners. That woman at the salon whom you quoted there, sounds so incredibly cunty and fat-frau-ish.

There's another home security company that had a commercial last year, still airing now, featuring a hot dad in his pajamas slowly walking through the house and turning off the lights, and he makes it to the front window and peers out and confidently says, "Not on my watch."

Those commercials appeal to people's need to see themselves as strong and accomplished and capable of protecting their families and their property. I just don't personally feel that I need such a security system myself. And I live in big bad Brooklyn. The people in those commercials just come off like such smug ASSHOLES.

This Old Macgimmick Sanderson Farms commercial.

by Anonymousreply 37708/27/2017

I don't know what it's advertising, but it's a montage of two newlyweds building a house. One of the clips in the montage is the wife going inside the empty house, but seeing a Happy Birthday balloon in the corner, and starts crying. Imagine being such a mess that you cry over a fucking balloon.

This thread depresses me, since we're only listing the terrible ads and there are hundreds of them in current rotation. Add in the tolerable ones, and we're all drowning in ads. It's pathetic.

Every time I see the commercial for the upcoming movie "Daddy's Home 2", Mel Gibson's evil, grizzled face makes me angry. Plus, he looks so out of place in this so-called comedy.

I cannot STAND that Dove chocolate commercial with Edith Piaf's caterwauling! Auughh!

AND...I hate to say this, but I am pretty sick and tired of seeing all the cancer commercials: "I was diagnosed with small cell nonspecific whatever..." A lot of them are for Cancer Treatment Centers of America, which I assure you is one very crooked outfit. I used to work in corporate insurance; they have a very poor relationship with insurance companies, as they are notorious for padding their bills.

I am very sorry you have cancer, but I don't really want to hear about it, thank you.

The whole thing sounds like it was written by the fraus in the legal dept. Or the bitchy one with the pearls who probably runs HR but wanted to be an actress. Oh, and diversity works better when it's not sooo obviously forced.

The CARVANA cunt who's all reluctant to sign the contract for a new car and keeps saying, "I'm so sorry, but ...." Why do fraus go around apologizing for EVERYTHING? I want to punch that woman in the throat and blow up and 'air-weenie' thing that supposedly saves the day in that ad. Stupid.

I hate the State Farm ads. OK, the dog water ballet one is clever, but I really despise the one where the moose gets his rack caught in a swing set and comes crashing through some family's RV windshield. Then J. K. Simmons smugly proclaims, "Yep. We covered it!"

What the hell good is that? Why are you bragging about covering bizarre one-in-a-million freak accidents? I want to know how well you'll cover stuff that never happens. I want to know how well you'll cover everyday claims like dented fenders, smoke damage and broken windows.

Can't find it online but there's a really annoying Amazon Alexa commercial playing in Canada right now. Chipmunk-faced bespectacled millennial girl all depressed because winter, sets up this tacky hipster Hawaiian kiki for her and her bestie Tracie, all with the help of Alexa. Set to Steal My Sunshine by Len.

by Anonymousreply 39212/31/2017

Thanks for the correction, R391. (I'm relieved to hear that it's a Farmers commercial because State Farm is my insurance company.) Also, that second-to-last sentence in my post R389 is missing a word. It should have read, "I DON'T want to know how well you'll cover..."

I despise the couple who gush over how "uh MAAZ ing!" Time Share Exit is. Caucasian husband & Asian wife, coyly referring to how the birth of their "first born child [simper]" changed them from carefree time-sharers in Maui to cozy adults who'd rather "spend time as a family [snuggle]". The husband is hot, but he's been well & truly tamed by a fecund bitch with a little-girl voice.

Anyone wanting to know what vocal fry is should watch the Poshmark commercials. That woman has it cranked up to lethal levels. I don't think I've ever heard worse.

Truly horrendous voice, R395. Who could live with that on a daily basis?

I can't stand the new Shriners commercial with kids progressing verrry slowwwly through mud puddles. I think the idea is that they're competing in a Tough Mudder, but it's just a flat field with a couple of non-electrified mud puddles. They keep going back to a tiny dykeling doing a push-up with her wee 10-inch legs off the ground, as if that's an accomplishment for someone whose entire body is comprised of upper-body.

To add insult to injury, some versions have a voiceover by DL fave Alec at the end and his voice is changing!

Thanks for your feedback. I'm actually not an actress, just a normal Poshmark user and they asked me to do the commercial for them. Most definitely NOT a Kardashian wannabe. If I ever decide to pursue acting professionaly I would definitely have proper voice training. Thanks!

-R400- Oh, sure. You talk like that because that's the way a spoiled, do-nothing, self-entitled BITCH who's never had anything bad happen to her talks as she happily and stupidly flounces around in her pointless life. I hope the next box that shows up for you is a GREASE FIRE.

R399, agreed. I hate any commercials written in second person. "You called him Brad. You loved Brad" Endlessly irritating.

The VRBO rental commercials are also in that grating second person narrative. Blech.

Haven’t seen it in a while thank God but for Spectrum just the catchphrase at the end: “Satellite tv bad. Spectrum good or Verizon bad. Spectrum good.” What did those cavemen from those insurance commercials come up with that catchphrase? Has to go down as the worst advertisement in history just based on the catchphrase at the end.

Those magical second hand smoke commercials where the smoke always manages to find the baby no matter where they put it and more and more so with each commercial. Think the smoke actually asks for directions after taking a potty break in the newest commercial. Let me tell you, if you can see a trail of smoke traveling from the first floor of your apartment to your baby’s room that ain’t cigarette smoke you’re inhaling.

This weird Knotts Berry Farm commercial here in SoCal where the Snoopy in costume character talks or barks or whatever. He sounds identical to Donald Duck. I keep thinking “did he swallow Donald and Donald’s trying to get out or is Donald inside the actual Snoopy costume looking to sabotage the commercial to promote the newly remodeled Disneyland?”

There’s a popular 80s song that I THINK is French in this RAV4 Hybrid Toyota commercial from this year. Not my favorite commercial so I suppose it belongs here. Does anyone remember what the song is? When I first heard “The Modern Age” by the Strokes in 2000 on Rodney Bingenheimer’s show THIS particular song came to mind.

I don't have dentures, but I assume they can get loose if an elderly person's jaw and gums shrink? I guess dentures can fly out of one's mouth if you're on a roller coaster?

An aunt lost most of her teeth in her late 30s. Her three pregnancies literally caused her to lose her teeth. I guess young people might need dentures due to illnesses.

This ones mean but I HATE dental related commercials here in the States narrated by a British person 😆 Other than Olmos for Hispanics and Morgan Freeman for African Americans we are obsessed with the Brits and their thick glorious accents narrating our commercials. I get it, very posh, mature, classy, chic, prissy, elegant etc. But dentistry? Not yet! No thank you. Gordon Ramsey may have changed the way we view British cuisine but there’s still a way to go for certain other fields like dental hygiene and I’m one to talk cause my teeth are quite treacherous and I love British culture but you have to draw the line somewhere.
