Commercials You're Hating: Coronavirus Lockdown Edition

If I have to hear that fucking Alicia Keys Amazon commercial one more time...

Hate me if you want but I'm sick of all the fucking huge companies trying to show their compassion during this crisis, especially banks and insurance companies! They all praise health care people on the 'front line'. They humble-brag about how much they're contributing to various causes -- what is a few million dollars to a gazillion dollar insurance company that's been feeding off of us for years? Like, I said, hate me if you want. These ads are for their own glory and good. Right now, I think my favorite is Lexus. Yep, they care a lot for us now...

Those Sonic commercials with that Jonathan Lipnike knockoff wannabe looking more like Drew Carey’s bastard son. In the first commercial with Sufjan Stevens playing in the background you could not understand a damn word he’s saying.

The way the lady “singing” in that commercial to sound all hipster millennial songwriter, it sounds like she went overboard. If the bitch doesn’t have covid by now I’d be amazed.

Any commercial that has a Zoom-like conference call. Like it's bad enough we have to deal with that in real life, we don't need to see it in commercials, too. And often the audio is poorly done because I think they are actually using real webcam video.

Charmin has upped the cringe factor in their commercials with the cartoon bears. The latest one shows the bears sitting and rubbing their butts against the chair in a very gross manner. The voice-over says something about "Is your present TP not getting you clean enough and causing you some itchiness. You will not have that problem if you use Charmin". Do not want to think about some bear scratching his nasty butthole.

Another thing - these Charmin ads always have the male bear having itchy butt or skidmarked underwear. Do the female bears not get butt problems? I suspect that they know that women mostly buy the TP and they don't want to show them looking nasty... gotta keep the buyers happy.

by Anonymousreply 6106/08/2020

No, women usually don’t have “those” problems. That’s why they can wear thong underwear easier.

Men wipe like they’re doing long division: they always leave a remainder.

by Anonymousreply 6206/08/2020

I think the Charmin ads use the male bears as the problematic ones because they can just focus on the butt. If they bring females into the equation they will have to delve into the fact that women use the product to wipe TWO areas and that may take the product into a realm that could be seen as erotic... in the minds of really immature people.

Totally agreed R39. If you're such a great company and you hail your employees as heroes, then you should have doubled their wages and provided them with PPE during the frickin' pandemic AMAZON.

Those Kaiser Permanente commercials with Allison Janney's voice droning on and on about how we need to wash up and we'll be together again, blah, blah, blah. Gee thanks Allison for reminding me to wash my hands and stay clean. I kind of already do that as a normal, functioning human being but thanks for the reminder anyway. It's not so much the commercial itself that's annoying, but the fact that it gets played every two minutes on TV. STOP, we get it.

The other celebrity voice commerical that annoys me is the one with Phylicia Rashad for American Family Insurance. It's the same droning voice and the same replay over and over and over again. It's like they're trying to brainwash us.

There's a National Rifle Association anti-Biden ad that keeps showing up on my YouTube feed in which a woman is being chased by a couple of men. She gets in her car and reaches for a hand gun, which is just lying out there. Then there's a cut away, the hand gun is gone and broken glass blows into the shot. I still can't figure out what's supposed to have happened. Did she shoot the bad guys through her car window? Did the hand gun magically disappear because Joe Biden took it away and the bad guys broke her window? Why is she trying to shoot the guys instead of just driving away?

The ad for a product called FemiClear, a yeast infection remedy. The ad shows two women in a yoga class, where one happily says that her "hooha" is happy because she fixed her yeast problem. What pushes this to the edge of tasteless is that the victim does these yoga poses, legs spread, right in her friends face. I guess this is to highlight that her vag is fresh and clean and doesn't have a bread odor anymore.

That kid who’s cute and all but he asks his cancer ridden girlfriend to the prom but before that he gets his head shaved. He was cutest at first before telling the barber “shorter” than again the barber thinks he’s done, “shorter.” Than the barber frustrated says “that would be a shave!” I totally get his frustration though cause he came in and didn’t even tell the barber he wanted a completely bare scalp. He’s pretty so he can get away with it but the rest of the commercial is so sappy from the music to the cancer girls reaction. Shown quite frequently as of late but if it weren’t for the eye candy I’d lose my mind from seeing it so much.

It’s not as bad as the father dropping his daughter off to the dorm before they play Celine’s Because You Loved Me. Very “Butterfly Kisses” cheesy sap but the fact that they didn’t play actual “Butterfly Kisses” tells you they already knew it was corny enough as it is. The dialogue was even more horrid like it was made to be shown on the 700 Club or something.

Oh dear....how passive aggressive of you 👍👍 Good job. Anyway, I could have sworn one of the guys in the Popeyes commercial squeals after biting into their new sandwich. How does squealing make people want to buy a product?. Unless you’re selling banjos or something keep the squealing to your damn self. It’s creepy as hell.

Also recently heard someone on a commercial “millennialize” the song Time After Time. I know they loving slowing down popular songs but this ones kind of on the same pace just very hipster raspy voiced Cat Power/Feist/Fiona Apple stylized like every other popular song they cover in commercials these days.

Also my brother says they politicized a Vaseline commercial and made in all BLM. Im mean I guess Vaseline makes your skin less chappy but the fact that you even equate Vaseline with chappiness, they’ll probably say YOU ARE racist for thinking that. So you can’t complain, you can’t rationalize, so I guess you just go with it I guess. Fortunately it’s not being aired much since I haven’t even seen it but I hope it’s not as bad as that shaving cream politicized commercial from a year ago. That was brutal. I was expecting them to bust out Kamba ya ma Lord by the end.

Might we take a moment to give special thanks for, at the very least, the fact we're no longer seeing the precious "in this together" commercials we were being bombarded by just a few months ago? You remember; the ones with all the stay-at-home mommies and daddies doing precious things with their little preciouses? The fake 'home video" footage showing daddies trying to ballet dance with their little Skylars and Haleighs, mommies staging cheer signs from their windows, 'thanking" all the nurses? Complete with childlike yet oh-so-professionally designed Crayola type lettering? All while a somber yet hopeful baritone voice narrates in the background about how this is the time we're all really just "one family looking out for one another"?

Is it true the lady with the giant knockers in that bubblegum commercial is only 15 years? I forgot the brand but it features one black girl who’s clearly a teenager and a girl who I thought was her mother. Anyway they’re in her room and from what I’ve read the big boobed friend is Swedish black like the Cherrys, Nenah and Eagle Eye. So it’s all about sharing and kind of being a tad preachy & trying to be all sentimental. Anyway if the girl really is 15 why are they even having her dress that provocatively like she’s trying out to be a Hooter waitress or something?

Only thing worse is this other I think insulin or diabetes related commercial where the girl is CLEARLY 7 or 8 and has the diabetic product in her pocket, only thing is you see more pocket than daisy duke shorts. Now why a 7 year old would even be wearing daisy dukes in the first place is disturbing enough in its own right

Pretty much all Volvo commercials, but the currently airing "Blow a Kiss" tops my list in the Can't-Get-To-The-Mute-Button-Fast-Enough category. I hate it even more now that my Google search for the song title (you know, in case it wasn't "We Need Someone to Lean On") took me down this rabbit hole: 1. There are six people listed as songwriters; 2. One of those six geniuses needs four names, William Sami Etienne Grigahcine, and is also known as DJ Snake; 3. There was all that writing, some remixing, rewriting, and rearrranging after which it was offered to and rejected by Rihanna and then Nicki Minaj before being recorded by Major Lazer; 4. Per Wikipedia, "An ethereal version of the song, recorded by Squeak E Clean Studios with vocal by Kit Conway, is used as background music for a series of television commercials for the 2020 Volvo XC90 plug-in hybrid automobile"; and, 5. The lyrics were changed for the commercial to "blow a kiss into the sun" (is that a thing?) from "blow a kiss, fire a gun." That last one at least gave me a chuckle when I read a Reddit poster who wrote, "I think they changed the lyrics because they knew they'd inspire a bunch of us to get guns and shoot people driving Vulvas." Yes, written as "Vulvas."

R212, that's been going on forever-- I've commented on it here before. Men can definitely be fat --anywhere from dadbod to Trump-sized.

The thing about black women in commercials is, they have to be not just plump-to-fat, they MUST be sassy. God help the shy or quiet black woman. Have you ever witnessed older fraus who have little to no contact with black people when they come across a large black woman in real life? They sort of expect the Sassy Black Woman in the Commercial experience. They want a "oooOOOOOOooohwee!" or a "Lemme tell you somethin', gurl!" from them. It tickles them and they pee a little when they get a little Commercial Black Sass in an otherwise mundane exchange where the black woman is obligated to tolerate such people, such as if she's a cashier or something . They get a little deflated when they don't get any of that sass, like they didn't get their money's worth.

Other than Skylar I really wasn’t paying much attention. This is after all a commercials we hate thread. However if you know Skylar’s real name don’t hesitate to drop it here. He is quite spectacular.

That phone sex commercial late night on Comedy Central has the ugliest skanks you’d ever seen. One looks like Bette Midler and one looks like either Billy Joel’s lookalike daughter or Billy Joel in drag (not much of a difference)BTW I saw Christmas Vacation, Airplane and Blazing Saddles all within a 3 hour period on tv just last Sunday alone. This entire weekend Comedy Central is showing an ALL ADAM SANDLER WEEKEND 😩😭😫Just stick to South Park 24/7 Comedy Central. If it ain’t broke 🤷🏼‍♂️

Also found the gay kid from the Warbly Parker glasses commercial but didn’t get his name.

May I ask something here and not get slaughtered? Could someone of color please weigh in and tell me how it feels to watch so many commercials with white women canoodling with black men? And, to a lesser extent, black women with white men. I understand the idea and the casualness with which they have inundated advertising but there always seems to be this weird subtext of "Look how lucky the black man is to have scored a blond WASP chick?" Or "Look how lucky the black woman is to be rescued and pulled into A Better Life by the white man". No matter what they are selling (and that's all it is about really), it feels counterproductive somehow, a very weird message I would think to someone of color True or am I reading too much into it?

Suddenly Zendaya is the go-to chick for high end items and she's recently popping up in TV ads for Valentino and Idole perfume by Lancome. She must be in her mid-20's but she gives off a very immature vibe that doesn't jibe with luxury merchandise. When I see her riding a horse in a white gown, it just seems fake and that she was picked because she's tall, bone-thin and has great hair.

I can't even really tell you exactly why I dislike her but seeing her in those ads annoy me.

The one that opens with a pitch black room and a baby howling (which sounds distressingly like an anguished cat). Then a man sits up in bed and turns on a light while a woman asks "Can you get that?" and he says that he will. Then the woman reaches to grab a ring of keys on the bedside table and says "I'm going to get us MacDonald's".

So many questions! Why do they keep the car keys next to the bed? How is it easier to drive to MacDonald's for breakfast food than to make coffee at home and microwave a frozen breakfast sandwich? Since the man can't nurse the baby, he must be going to feed it a bottle, which takes time to prepare and warm up -- why can't wife just fix a pot of coffee while he's doing that, instead of driving to MacDonald's? Or, since they both know this happens every night, why don't they keep a thermos jug of hot coffee ready for the parent who gets up? Does wife drive to MacDonald's in her bathrobe or does she take time to get dressed? Why didn't this couple use a condom several months ago and sleep through the night now?

He says he had been using Noom to lose weight and it was his WIFE who told him he should get in touch with the company to see if he could do a testimonial in one of their commercials. He says they picked him right away and then like I said, they flew him and his friend/employee who was using Noom as well out to LA (expense free) to film the commercials.

ALL the HIV drug commercials and they're embarrassing stereotypes. I loathe the drag queen who's proclaiming the drugs is for "Kings, THIS queen and all you royals in between!". It's only slightly worse than the one with the black queen with dreads who's getting some cheesy award for his charity walk, or some shit. Now, she seems like she'd be fun to have drinks with, but the commercial is so over the top twee and absurd. The guy is made-up like a caricature, prissy, eye fluttering. Just way too, 'perfect'.

Of course he's now been replaced by an even nellier queen, a lilly white one that looks like the HIV drug didn't work, all of 90lbs, and who's super into "fitness", (as evidenced by seeing a gym in the background and the suggestion he's doing yoga.)

I take one of those medications and even at home, with my partner in the room, I want to crawl under the sofa from embarrassment. Perhaps unintentionally, those drug companies are perpetuating a stereotype that assures the stigma of HIV will live on.

Wendy’s and other burger places going after a 70 year old sandwich with the Big Mac....well technically originally the Bobs Big Boy creation. What’s weird is like Jack in the Box with their Goddamn tacos Wendy’s keeps forcing their chicken sandwiches in their commercials. The “where’s the beef” place which ironically ran out of beef during the pandemic...which is probably why they’re doing it. Big Mac as we all know is not even a chicken sandwich so how you could even compare the two 🤨 So I’m getting with that dated catchphrase they wanted to outdate themselves even further so look no further than to reference a sandwich as old as the Big Mac.

I hate the one where the two young ladies are doing laundry in a communal laundry room and they start talking about new cute guy across the room who had just moved in. Cue Flo to pop up, start talking to the guy and then embarrass the one woman about finding her retainer. At the introduction, Flo was goofy and funny but now she largely comes across as mean-spirited and dumb.

I’m just waiting for them to play a slowed down hit song featuring an interracial couple, just hit every target imaginable in these commercial fads. Think even that muppet sounding Tom Waits that all the know it all college kids revere did his own version.

Okay - this one is on every night now - it’s the most recent Walgreens commercial. There is a man and woman in their 60s stomping grapes. I think that we are supposed to think oh boy here is an old hip sexual couple: he is sort of a cool old hipster. BUT - the woman is really into it and has little rhythm. Her bosoms are enormous and jiggling while she is stomping the grapes and she is wearing a bad wig that looks too big for her head - it’s weird..... I really liked the Walgreens commercial they ran a few weeks ago. It was the one with the really tall skinny gawky girl being quirky and brushing her teeth; dancing in the kitchen and goes out on a scooter and falls and hurts her ankle. Her cute boyfriend wraps her ankle and then gives her a piggy back ride - the actress is quirky with out being “precious” about it.

The Ruffles “T. Pain without Autotune” commercial. So they’re basically saying he hasn’t a single degree of what would even pass as “talent” in hip hop today without the robot machine? Way to expose that entire industry with just that one single line. How was his moron publicist stupid enough to even allow this? It basically outing everyone who uses it and will probably end up, and God be let this be true, killing autotune altogether. It’d be like saying “Kim K without photoshop” and no way in a million years would her mom ever allow that. We know it’s true but once they fess up to it, that’s the end of the Kardashian empire.

Long ago, when I was a young RN, it was considered unethical (believe it or not!) for pharmaceutical companies to advertise prescription medication anywhere except in print medical journals like New England Journal of Medicine, etc. TV could run ads for over the counter meds - things like headache remedies ("Mother, PLEASE! I'd rather do it MYSELF!"), upset stomachs (usually hilarious animated diagrams and later, famously, Alka-Seltzer) but never anything that required a prescription, much less a serious condition such as cancer, cardiac arrhythmias, or any of the tons of conditions you see today. Pharmaceutical sales reps visited MD offices and hospital pharmacies (and yes, they gave out pens, pencils, and other promotional objects, but these were limited to the clinical staff). There was no such thing as "Ask your doctor if (Rx____) is "right for you".

The other night I was flipping through channels and FOUR CHANNELS IN A ROW were running medication ads simultaneously. It is a tragic event when someone develops "non small cell lung cancer" or "HR positive her 2 negative breast cancer" to be sure, but do we really need smarmy ads promising a "few more special events" before the Big Chill? (looking at you, "Optivo"). Not to mention the announcers who quickly reel off a laundry list of side effects, such as the life threatening "genital infection" that Farxiga warns about? Then, of course, there are ads for every other condition under the sun, from IBS to bladder control to eczema to COPD). "Ask your doctor..." has resulted in patients being led to believe that there is a pill/cream/inhaler for every condition and demanding it from their harried MDs. It's not only annoying, it's misleading and SAD.

Of course, it used to be taboo for attorneys to advertise on TV as well; now daytime TV is glutted with personal injury, workers comp, traffic accident, elder abuse, talcum powder cases, etc etc...clearly I am dating myself, but just imagine if all of the pharmaceutical and lawyer ads simply vanished?

That new Pringles where that awkward teenage boy talks about how fine this black mans sexy teenage daughter is before he takes her out. See this is where that interracial casting of couples totally backfires and ironically comes across as racist when they’re trying to be as PC as possible. In certain black families, to a degree Hispanics as well, the fathers feel like their daughters get sexualized by these perverse white boys who just want to have them as a notch in their bedpost and brag to their friends about. This commercial totally comes across as just that. We never see the daughter but that’s kind of what adds to the stereotype, the mystery. I’d normally say when you cast a couple no matter the ethnicity they have to look believable and not like two people that you wouldn’t even see at the dmv passing each other by. This commercial however leaves a bad taste which adds too the irony of them promoting their chips.

That Flo commercial where this family’s on the beach, yeah it’s Flo so you know it’s gonna blow. I once read that the entertainment industry has this “sole rule.” Now it makes sense if you look at this commercial and just any tv show in general. 90% of the time when we’re in the comfort of our own home and it’s not cold out, we’re either barefoot, in sandals or flip flops or maybe if you’re really stretching it in socks but that’s still kind of reaching. So I always thought this article I read about there being a rule where you’re not allowed to show bare soles for more than 5 seconds was them just being conspiracy theory bonkers. Well this commercial everyone is wearing sneakers on the beach, not even flip flops. It’s weird how the entertainment industry feels about feet and sweat. You notice sweat is only used in the most extreme scenarios usually in comedic fashion like in Airplane. But even when they’re trying to show it’s hot outside more often then not they don’t want to ruin the makeup artists work by showing blushing, redness and sweat. Anxiety, nervousness, awkwardness all bring out sweat along with other mental or physical issues but I guess that’s where acting comes in over physical reaction. Just an observation. And with feet they might show them to only represent that person is disgusting and gross ala Al Bundy. So yeah the part of that Flo on the beach commercial is the footwear over how much of an obnoxious putts she is.

I am seeing it a lot and that they’ve overcome tremendous odds is incredible but how do you think it makes the other minorities feel? How many times have you heard it’s not all a black and white issue? It makes others not in the demographic feel ostracized and alienated. That may be the whole point of these commercials but again do you want to be catered to or do you want people to support a business based on merit and how well they treat you?

Just be careful, r592.

You could trip running for the remote and wind up with a face like his.

*shudder*

I run for the remote whenever a Progressive commercial with the insufferable ass, Jamie, turns up.

How about a new one showing a ceiling falling on him while he's eating Fruit Loops?

Another Voltaren commercial full of gay men married to straight women. Is this the Voptaren target market?
