The alexa commercial where the dad plays "Broken Wings" has an incest vibe to it. At least to me it does.

When the song starts I keep expecting her to yell

"Oh my god dad you're so loving old."

Also the woman (women?) in Investigation Discovery ads that are too involved in their shows about murder and weird out their husbands, which is a pretty accurate description of people who watch ID.

They used to call me tricky-kid, I lived the life they wish they did.

I hate to say it but the BK ads kind of hit home with me because my buddy and I were so broke in college.

I distinctly remember sitting there with him marveling at all the food we got for $3 in quarters.

We'd go three times a week, easily.

When I was in my latter days of college and my sweet extra savings money had run out I was tracking Jack in the Box tacos (2 for 99c), and getting the receipt deals upon checkout, at around 390 calories per serving, so $5 (go once, pay 99c, go a 2nd time and get an extra taco, etc) a day meant I wouldn't die. Fun times, and I'm glad to not have to do that anymore.

You know, when a lot of places claim that they've improved some item on their menu I'm all "pfft, whatever" but when Wendy's changed the way they cooked their bacon they did make it a lot better.

Rat poison is a self-own because then all the vermin die in the walls of your house and you have to deal with the stench of countless rotting corpses for weeks if not months.

I've had plenty of decent enough pizza in FTL, not found a place that's as good as stuff back home yet but it's out there. I can feel it. Dominos towards the bottom end of the places I've had here, and even that wasn't bad-bad.

Yeah, especially when right now Pizza Hutt has several ads talking about their grilled cheese pizza. That sounds like poo poo, which isn't saying much for Pizza Hutt.

It's terrible. Don't get one.

And it's funny that Pizza Hut tried to do the whole "here's lots of new and good options for our pizza, please order from us" thing, but have now given up on that and are doubling down on gimmicks.

I actually thought it didn't taste that bad.

The crust I mean. The actual pizza was just regular Pizza Hut and that was just OK.

Toyota's ad with the two stupid women going shoe shopping and using the satnav to find a department store can go take a flying gently caress at a rolling donut. Why doesn't that sort of blatant stereotyping get called out? I don't know why this specifically pisses me off so much but it just disgusts me every time I see it.
