This one I keep seeing now is a car commercial some stupid family singing "Buddy Holly" by the band Weezer. I've seen three iterations of this sort of commercial and every one of them is completely cringeworthy. The other two were families singing "Sweet child of mine" and "Crazy Train".

What annoys me is that no person under 20 is probably going to know who Weezer is nowadays. And then the Grandpa chimes in and no person over 60 is probably going to know who Weezer is.

That commercial made me realize that Weezer is loving Dad Music now and it made me feel old even though the Blue Album came out when I was like nine.

The newest TV spots for Ex Machina explicitly show scenes from the end of the movie and it's goddamn infuriating. They also promote the movie as "SEXY ROBOTS" when it's so much more than that stupid tag line.

Ex Machina is a good movie with terrible marketing. I was going to skip it until a friend told me that it was one of the better sci-fi movies he's seen in a while. The marketing made it seem like something completely different than what it is.

I'm guessing whoever came up with the Sweet Child o Mine one has never seen Step Brothers.

I just saw a Nissan commercial where it was apparently some great feat that the car was faster than a schoolbus.

They didn't really think that through, did they?

No, the bus driver looked miffed that he'd been beaten, though.

I have to dive for the remote to mute the tv or change the channel whenever that Buddy Holly commercial comes on so it doesn't ruin the actual song for me.

They added a shot of a note that says "birthday bucket list" at the beginning of it. They probably got a lot of calls from people just bawling.

That tape measure one is pretty accurate, if you're using one of them little bitty ones that only has a quarter inch wide tape that can't support its own weight.

Maybe it's those straps you can hook to the bottom of furniture to hold it steady/lift easier. If so, that commercial would involve the two guys going overboard along with the mattress.

Please stop using tools of any kind if a simple tape measure folding over on itself causes you to fall down like epileptic in an earthquake.

There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

So apple has a new commercial out. What are they going to advertise their quality of their camera? Maybe something new or something? Nope, the only thing they can muster is their apps. Pretty much the same apps you can find on android and they make a commercial about it.

They're just doing the same thing Coke or McDonalds or whoever is doing. Product doesn't change much/if at all and everyone knows who they are but there's noticeable dips in sales if they stop advertising.
