Dunno if we got a ads we like thread still, but I honestly have to admit that I like the Little Big Planet Karting ad. It just reminds me of the old 90s era video game commercials and that juts makes me feel happy.

This ad for Farmersonly.com has been playing too much recently on all sorts of late-night TV. That one and the Cougar dating site. I hate them all so much.

I complained about a GMC commercial last year "It's a 403 horsepower 6.2 liter....NUTCRACKER!" (with nutcracker music playing in the background) as a guy I didn't like the fact that they'd want me to be comfortable driving something that cracks nuts and I also didn't like the fact that the slow-mo driving through the snow, he hits a rut and bottoms out the front suspension, hitting the bump stops maybe breaking stuff and they just expect you not to notice that on the commercial.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jf1Y1OYTzIg

It's back this year but they say 5.3 liter 315 hp nutcracker. I swear its for Chevy this time, and it's the same footage with the same suspension-kill drive too fast maneuver. Maybe they covered the GMC logo with a Chevy one? (It really is the same truck on the outside regardless of 2011/2012 chevy/gmc 5.3/6.2)

The Chevy commercials with the weird airy kinda uncool music in the background those suck too. "blah-bl-bl-blah at the Chevrolet dealer oh something something something again"

The product is actually a pretty good idea. The commercial less so. The most effective Surface commercial would just be a person sitting down and opening up PowerPoint.

The Overstock.com "O is the One" commercials. All of them. I don't know why, but something about those stupid songs and the cheesy backgrounds just pisses me off. Also, I feel like I'm supposed to know who the woman in the commercial is, but I don't. (The YouTube description tells me her name is Jennifer Paige, but that doesn't help me at all.)

All those commercials do is remind me Overstock exists because I thought they went out of business a long time ago.

I don't get why Lexus has to insert dubstep in every one of their ads. Is it just a couple of old stiffs heard their 14 year old nephew liked it so they stuck it in everything? Same thing with Windows. So many good commercials wasted with a lovely dubstep song.

Also BMW, adding a pause to your cadence isn't clever. No one has ever had a resolution to "hug more".

You know, the holiday "SHOP LIKE YOUR LIFE loving DEPENDS ON IT" ads are still better than campaign ads, but not by that much.

They're more desperate than ever, it seems. Like, "Okay, the economy's slowly recovering, JUST BUY STUFF ALREADY."

But seriously gently caress that jingle and I wish bad things on everyone involved in its creation.
