Commercials You're Hating: Coronavirus Lockdown Edition

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.

That Downey commercial btw....There’s this episode of Friends where Phoebe purposely tries to get herself sick to have this sexy rasp in her voice. 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?

In general I'm tired of these gonzo-themed, outlandish commercials that usually feature:

-Some completely bonkers situation - person or persons calmly sitting without reaction to the situation

Liberty Mutual, Geico, Progressive, Little Caesars, there are just too many of them!

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.

The one the straights might like that’s super distracting is this gum commercial where this lady wakes up her daughter but the mother’s tits are so huge I can’t tell if she pushes or tugs at her to wake her or if one of her giant knockers doesn’t smack her in the face to wake her. Don’t think I’ve ever seen a black lady with tits that enormous. It’s supposed to promote friendship and caring and sharing but all I see are those melons so I’m wondering if it’s for like watermelon flavored gum or something cause that would connect things together a little better I suppose 🤔

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 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.

The one where the guy thinks he’s gonna zoom with his wife’s friends but they all actually show up and he’s in his undies. Lots of interracial couples in these commercials lately (at least on the west coast, don’t know about the south) which I could by especially if the white girls are on the thicker side, but a straight brotha in righty whities?

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"?

Yes, let us at least give thanks for that.

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."
