The tmobile girl is hot, but the guy rapping or whatever you want to call it is annoying as hell

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5ygXJqchBo

Then theres the commercial for verizon? where the moms shopping for a new phone and the sales guy asks if she needs help and nerd white kid with a fro and big gulp steps out from behind her and goes 'i got this'. Then he quizzes the sales guy on phone features and goes, ok hes cool.. and walks away.

That was the best/worst ad ever.

I've no interest to see Cars 2 at all. I think it's a pointless sequel to one of Pixar's weakest films, but hey, $$$ in merchandising. That doesn't mean I need to see the State Farm commercial with Mater and the two spy cars every single goddamn commercial break on any channel at any time, anywhere.

The thing that gets me about this commercial is this:

In Cars, the cars are people, right? But the pet boutique ALSO has cars in it! So in the Cars universe, people have other people for pets?

The Cars universe is a hosed-up place, man. It's not too far off from the core Disney universe though, where dog-men have dogs for pets. I guess it's some kind of Planet of the Apes type thing.

I would watch Planet of the Vehicles, where the second-class vehicles rebel.

So, do the planes build the cars, or the cars build the planes? Or is there something much more sinister at work manufacturing these sentient machines?

I don't think so. The natural, geological forces of the planet on which Cars takes place make mountains in the shape of cadillacs. It'd take more than a few days in the tail of a comet to do that to Earth.

I still find it really insane how T-Mobile continues to air their ads bashing AT&T when they got bought out by them 3+ months ago. I'm also not sure if you have T-Mobile or go get a phone from them now you'll even have one of those special contracts once the merger is approved. I sincerely AT&T lets those exist.

I never saw Maximum Overdrive in full; mostly just clips on Youtube. So I wasn't sure how that ended.

Since Trucks had more of an open-ended conclusion, I went with that.

Alltel was still running ads ripping Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile for quite a while after the Verizon purchase was cleared, too.

It's funny too, since the AT&T commercials are all about how they and T-Mobile are one company now.

T-Mobile was the only one left with remotely reasonable plans and contracts, who do I switch to once my contract is up?

Not really a hate ad, but if anyone else lives in the area of Jos. A Bank, their ad announcer is literally the most excited person who has ever sold me a suit. It's like he has an orgasm every time he says the store name or a low, low price.

Pretty sure Cars showed living military jets flying in formation over the racetrack at one point. I bet their missiles are alive, too.

Briefly, gloriously alive.

We've already had "You don't have an iPhone" and "Dr. Pepper tastes like Dr. Pepper", but in the last half hour or so, I've seen Dunkin' Donuts' Frozen Hot Chocolate tastes like frozen hot chocolate at least 5 times. It was annoying te first time, and it gets moreso each time.

Also, DQ ads are just getting more and more annoying. It'd almost be impressive if it didn't drive me so crazy.

I believe the mute button was specifically invented for commercial breaks on SportSouth. The Braves games run about four different ads, with frequent showings of the flash mob.

The Shane Co. radio ads drive me insane. The guy's voice just grates and how long they run are ridiculous.

This one is a combination of every negative thing you can think of: It's the CREDIT MacDADDY! Bless small television stations. Bless them all. This aired on WALB-TV.
