Commercials you're hating in 2019

The DNA test commercial (Ancestry.com?) where the lady screams, “I thought I married an Italian!” Her and her husband seem ashamed when they find out through the DNA test that he’s really Eastern European. That commercial creeps me out so bad.

r1, My biggest problem with that commercial is near the end when the husband picks up the picture of his ancestor and says "yes, he looks a little like me." NO idiot! He came first, you look like him, not the other way around.
Damn Millennials are dumb.

I started off hating it, but the commercial with Progressive's Flo attending a big party at her co-worker Jamie's house is making me laugh. It is so outrageous to have him living in a huge McMansion with a gorgeous wife and several blond happy kids and he can sing like Gomer Pyle as he strums his guitar.
"She is so tiny, like a little child."
"Flo" is showing up as one of the wife's friends on "The Goldberg's."

I hate the Rexulti commercial where the "Good Works Kitchen" volunteers have their long hair hanging down while they're handling food. "They're getting a free lunch. Fuck 'em if they can't take a little hair."
Also, the main frau has one of those weird flat faces with vast expanses of lifeless skin, giving the appearance of an artist's rendition of what an unidentified murder victim looked like in life.

Local for NYers -- the WCBS ads that feature an annoying Country-Western sounding jingle that demand viewers to "listen to Lonnie" for the weather. Then it shows weatherman Lonnie Quinn staring at screens, scribbling on pads, talking to underlings like a busy bee and we better "listen" to his forecast or else. I hate how they conflate the importance of the weatherman, who all he does is get his info from the National Weather Service and relays it to viewers, but they make it sound like Lonnie is the only man who gets the right info. And he never looks humble.

Any commercial for a Rebel Wilson movie that involves a scene with her tripping and falling. Unfortunately, she has a movie coming out soon and we are being bombarded with the TV ads with just this scene. The heavy person stumbling and falling has never been that funny but they keep throwing it in movies.

There's a current one for Activia which shows close-ups of women's bellies, with the implication that if you eat the product, you get will get nice abs. I noticed that in a lot of yogurt commercials - eat their stuff and you become slim and athletic. Even Activia, whose real selling point is that it will keep you regular but they put emphasis on outward physical appearance, not your doody schedule. Even these foreign Activia ads follow the "get thin!" story line.

This belongs in the Shriners thread but I hate the insidious sliding-in of Kaleb while Alec became a mere dot on the horizon in our rearview mirrors. I was old enough and aware enough to know that I was being groomed by dark forces, but what could I do?
By the time they dropped the bomb and audaciously exposed what they had done to us by showing Alec rolling up to Kaleb and grunting, "hey kid, come with me and help me look for my lost puppy.....I'll give you $5 and a pack of Camels" while winking at Kaleb's mother, my will to resist had been broken.
It's official: the kind is dead, long live the king!

He'a also the RUDEST man to ever hold a dinner party! Who leaves their guests talking at the table like that to go off and shoot pool in the garage or basement or wherever that is? Who then gets in his car and leaves his house entirely leaving his poor put upon wife to entertain the guest while he is absent, off on his own psychedelic trip or what not?
Simply atrocious manners.

The tooth implant ads, featuring people who are "ashamed" about their missing teeth, "afraid" to smile, and generally too distraught to live. My favorite is the obstetrician who can't beam at the new babies he delivers and their ecstatic parents because he has to hide his imperfect smile behind his mask! Try as I might, it's impossible to summon too much sympathy for these shallow vain people who suffer this "disability" -- there are people who can't walk, you big crybabies!

Cottonelle and its "Care Down There" ad is all kinds of gross. The voice-over spins the story of a couple going on vacation and the woman getting a bikini wax for the occasion, then turns it into her picking the right kind of TP that will make sure she's squeaky clean. While this audio is going, it shows a peach in a tiny beach chair - a hand holding some TP wipes the peach and shows all of the "sand" that came off on the TP.

May be local - a dental place advertising they specialize in implants. They show the happy dentists talking in the office and patients signing in for appointments, then they drop the news that procedures start at only... $16,000! This ad is set up like those meds where they list the serious side effects with some peppy music playing in the background - ignore the bad stuff and just listen to the happy music. Sure, everyone has that kind of $ just laying around for teeth, and a lot of insurance plans don't cover implants. You can get a car for a lot less than $16K.

I know that whenever I get a square inch of dark chocolate, I am always careful to bite off just the smallest edge and then sit back with my eyes closed and savor that little pinch of heaven in my mouth. I then put away the rest of the wafer for later use. (I never swallow it whole like I was taught to engulf the Communion wafer from my childhood Catholic days..."Swallow it, don't chew on it!" the priest would order with authority and I would.)
The "unlikely" friendship between Martha Stewart and Snoop (Doggy) Dog is just the cutest, most twee thing in the world. Now they have added Celine singing "Titanic" to the mix and it sends a warm sensation rushing throughout my body and stops just short of projectile vomit issuing from my mouth.

There are two or three versions of ads targeting senior citizens to buy a life insurance policy to cover their "final expenses." The worst one features a black mother and daughter; the daughter says something like, "Mom, how are you doing?" and the old lady says she fine now but she's ready for her "homecoming" and then says, "Oh, by the way, I made plans so that you and your brother won't have to pay my final expenses." To which the daughter replies, "Oh Mom, I didn't know you had saved money to cover your final expenses!" Then the mother says, "I didn't - but with just one call I got a $30,000 policy that will cover all my final expenses."
They say fucking "final expenses" about fifteen times, but that's the gist of it.

The ad for the internet/cable provider Altice has a table of people at a futuristic dinner party, talking about the "antiquated" form of cooking called flambe. They have a robot butler and a hologram chef. The point of the ad seems to be that Altice is so up-to-date on cable and internet technology, that it's futuristic. The characters in the commercial are all so snobby and superficial sounding, it makes the ad annoying.

R257, It's a cliche* that all black people insist on an elaborate funeral even though they're usually poor in American society -- like the maid in "Imitation Of Life". So their "final expenses" will require a $30,000 life insurance policy because a huge, flashy, vulgar display costs a bundle (but is necessary or poor simple, uneducated Mammy can't get into Heaven). The Neptune Society should run ads pointing out that you can buy a cremation plan for a couple of thousand dollars payable over time & relieve your survivors of having to make a big showy fuss.

I have Windows 10, and you go into Windows Accessories and open Character Map. From there, you choose from individual letters, depending on what accent you need.

R265, Windows 7 is out of support. You need to upgrade (or get a new computer/laptop).
Also on Windows 10, you can use the touch-keyboard (even with a mouse and no touch-screen). If you right-click an empty area of the taskbar you can select "Show Touch Keyboard Button" so it's always there in the system tray on the lower right. You can then easily just click the button to bring up the on-screen keyboard, and click-and-hold (or touch-and-hold if you have a touch-screen) the "E" key, and do just like on iOS … select which "e" you want. It's even more convenient and easy to use than the Character Map app.

This ad for a card called Netspend, that advertises that you can get your paycheck "2 days earlier". They have people crowing that they can now get paid on Wednesday instead of Friday like their coworkers, and thus they can "manage my money better". None of this gibberish makes sense - if you get paid 2 days before everyone else, what difference does that make and if 2 days matters so much in your whole money situation, there's no way that it's going to improve how you manage your finances.
This is another way to prey on people living paycheck to paycheck, thinking this is some kind of benefit. There is half a screen of fine print which no one except Superman could read, where they hide how this scam works.

It irritates for so many reasons - since when does any parent allow their child to act like that, since when does a child dictate to the parents what to have for dinner and whatever happened to the same parents saying "You're going to sit down and eat what I made you or else...".

I want to go back in time and live in the world depicted by Christmas “cheer” TV ads, “cheer” meaning alcohol. Everyone looked happy and sophisticated, even in the André champagne ads. All those ads - Gallo brothers, Martini & Rossi (on the rocks .....or their Asti Spumante), Cold Duck, Harvey’s Bristol Creme, Paul Masson (selling no wine before it’s time), Seagrams. The ladies wore elegant gowns (later, elegant, flowing one piece pantsuits) and choker necklaces and the men wore turtlenecks and jackets with leather elbow patches (and green plaid scarves), there were multicolored C9 lights on trees and windows, along with window corner frost. It was lightly snowing outside and everyone cane in the front door with big flakes on their jackets and were holding boxes that were gift wrapped — top and bottom separately — and they’d pull off the wrapped & bowed lid and showed what great alcohol they’d brought to the party.
There was no date rape or drunkenness in the ads. Everyone was well dressed and educated. Women had been to the beauty parlor earlier in the day, babysitters were watching their prefect children at home. In the early 70s, black couples finally showed up at the ad parties and we all toasted integration for the upper crust blacks & whites that we all hoped to be. Glasses plinked, conversation was low volume, punctuated by hearty-but-not-boisterous laughter. Someone would tap a martini glass with an appetizer fork to get everyone’s attention, wish us a Merry Christmas & a healthy and happy 1967; we’d all clap and someone might start off a stanza of Auld Lang Syne.

The gawdawful spots TuneIn inserts into their MSNBC audio stream, that's the worst I got. (DirecTV won't ever get me back with their REALLY shitty ads!)

The Vorizon commercials with that obnoxious nerd and the Dior perfume commercials with Charlize or Jennifer. So ridiculous. Makes me despise them both more than I do.

Why do I get enraged by seeing Zoe Kravitz sitting in a rain forest with her blouse falling off her shoulder, and tapping her fingers on a bottle of beer? Maybe because it's selling point is that it's organic beer, like a beer swiller really cares? Or that Zoe stooped to this?

These ridiculous Sandals resort commercials with one couple on a beautiful deserted beach. Gee, how much is that bill supporting a whole resort with only one couple at a time?

R301 I can't stand her either. I know she's an actress doing her job - but she's beyond annoying. State Farm must want to compete with Liberty Mutual for the worst possible ads.

The Liberty Mutual commercial with the out of shape guy with the huge calves. The ad manager for all the LM commercials should be fired, none of the commercial are funny or engaging.

ALL Liberty Mutual commercials are failures. Their ad agency should be run out of business.

I don't blame the agency that created the commercials it's the person in LM corporate marketing who approved them and pushed them on upper management.

The oldies cable channel in my area is constantly running the ads with sad animals and asking for help. Now they went to the next level with these ads for Operation Smile, which is a foundation to fix cleft palate deformities for kids overseas. OMG, it is brutal to see the split upper lips, gappy mouths with teeth poking out from every direction on the little children.

R359, R360, R361: how do companies learn which ads work and which don't? They must do surveys and find people who did or didn't buy their product as a result of seeing certain ads. Which means that a lot of people must say that they were persuaded by those horrendous ads to buy car insurance from Liberty Mutual. Hope to god I never have to meet those folks!

The car commercial with some people at a meeting. A women with a fake whispery voice (think Ivanka T) gets a phone call, she tells the South Asian man next to her that: "Alex left her cello in the car." Huh? WTF? What a stupid fucking commercial.
Then the group, drops off the whispery voiced woman's daughter's cello, they then proceed to have their meeting in the car. What the point? That the car is so fabulous you can have a meeting in it?
The woman's fake whispery voice is so damn annoying, I want to punch her in the mouth! I despise those whispery pseudo sophisticated voices. They hurt my ears.

All of those "real people" (not actors!) in those lousy Chevy commercials are getting on my very last nerve. They are the dream spokespeople that every company doing commercials could possibly hope to find. They gush and orgasm over every little feature of the shitty Chevy cars they are looking at in their "real people" speeches:
"I want a Chevy now!"

Sure, they're all real people. They all turn at precisely the same moment, they don't talk over each other, and they move in sync. Fucking Chevy bullshit.

R367, ever hear of editing?
While I agree those commercials are annoying, they select the tidbits they like, adjust sound and they’re done.
The production is cheap, not paying the actors and it’s easy to put together. Not a bad marketing plan from a financial standpoint.

There are several actresses now doing that commercial. Eva Longoria and Busy Phillips have been doing those L'Oreal ads recently. Busy's long fake nails in the commercial are very distracting. If the company wants to sell their face cream, she needed to have a short manicure.

The latest heart drug commercial set at an interracial wedding makes me cringe every time. All the forced gaiety and phony set-up. Who knew medicine could be so fun?
I am really curious if black women feel about these ads the same way some of us gay men feel about trans stuff, the subtle erasure element. Celebrating (to sell product, granted) the black man getting a white woman instead. The scenario is so common in ads now, it feels oddly pointed. Curious what others think.

No one is getting erased, quite the opposite. There are tons of current TV ads with a white man and a black woman. Just saw one for a mattress a few minutes ago, it featured a white man, a black woman and a little red haired boy who looked 100% white. Guess the son was the husband's kid from his first marriage. lol
The point is, ad agencies are featuring so many mixed couples, they are doing this to enrage the Republicans, the Religious Right and all the other Trumpster racists and xenophobes. One commercial even featured a drag queen to advertise Chips Ahoy!
You mean to tell me, you haven't noticed all the ads now featuring tons of non-white people and mixed couples? How about the ads featuring gay couples?
In addition to the mixed and gay couples and even mixed gay couples, I've been seeing more South Asians, East Asians and tons of black people in TV ads. I guess if you no longer watch TV, you aren't seeing these commercials.

That hideous Volvo ad with the soprano trilling out that piece of opera. I have flung myself across the room to grab the remote before she hits the first note.

The Chantix commercial with the anthropomorphized TURKEY who, while camping, pours a handful of chantix pills into his hand, takes one, cooks the rest in his soup pot and then eats the soup. Yes, that is what actually happens.
My SO pointed this out to me, I had seen only glimpses of it before - camping turkey, how cute..

Does Jason Bateman need money so bad that he is willing to play an elevator operator in a car commercial? He looks old all of a sudden too.
