Look at that thing! People are goldfish so I'll point out every mundane detail of our WAAACKY commercial! Otherwise they might miss that the cloud is talking or that my torso is on backwards!

Seriously. While they'd still be dumb, they'd be far less insufferable if they guy would jsut shut up. Just have him think everything going on is mundane except for the DQ stuff which he finds amazing.

I'm more annoyed that there are still multiple commercials airing right now that use the Mac/PC "two people standing in front of a white background with tinkly music where one is all hey check out my awesome product! and the other is all duh-hyuk I'ma argue that mine is better but you'll show how dumb and wrong I am!" format. It wasn't clever when Apple was doing it and it's even less so when you do, T-Mobile, Kindle, and lovely local bank.

Agreed, it would be good if this format died already.

Although, as a kindle owner, I do prefer this commercial to the "let's race around the city and be REBELS! while passing around our Kindle!" commercials, or the lady with the expensive sunglasses. Now that I think of it, the Kindle advertising has been pretty awful.

I like the stop-motion ones, but the music in them gets annoying fast.

Even Imus is doing that for his commercials now since he has the show on ABC Radio or something like that.

(young, thin, white kid) We make our guests squirm by asking the tough questions.

(older, fat, white guy) ...well...we fluff our guests up and make them as comfortable as possible.

And Imus is just in the background reading the paper because I guess he's too good to deal with any of that poo poo I don't know its a really bad advertisement.

Let me just say this - if, for Father's Day, I told my Dad I was taking him to Golden Corral?

He'd willingly have Vietnam flashbacks, beat the living black and blue out of me, light me on fire, and leave me staked outside the restaurant as a lure for incoming customers to step into the Punji Stake trap he set up in the parking lot.

What I hate most about the newest Kindle commercial is when the girl flips down the page in her book...judging by the expression she makes, and the amount of effort she seems to be putting into it, her book is made of titanium.

That bugs me, too, but for a different reason, Unless it's a ratty paperback, I never fold down the corners of a book, especially a hardback.

Exactly. This is basically on par with GoDaddy "WEB CONTENT UNRATED" ads and the previously mentioned "Make 7 Up Yours" stuff. It's to get a few people riled up and just brand the name some more. Not any different from that dumbass thing girls were doing on facebook where they posted their bra colors or where they liked putting their purse and it supposedly had something to do with breast cancer.


Along those lines, goddamn are those Helluvagood Dip radio ads annoying. We get it, guys. You have "hell" in your name. Clever.

Some ads that make me feel uncomfortable are the ones who show starving kids in Africa, sad puppies and kitties in shelters, etc and beg for just 17 cents a day. I know they're good causes but the reason they make me uncomfortable is I always wonder how much does it cost them to air these commercials so many times a day?

This. In marketing classes from grad school they showed us ads like "plop plop fizz fizz" for alka seltzer and other various ads that were among the most memorable of all time and while most were very humorous they did not result in people actually buying the product.

Hey, Frank's Red Hot Sauce, I know you love your slogan, "I put that sh** on everything," and think it's super hilarious, but it's getting really tired when it gets played twice every ad break on almost every radio station, and it's not that good of a tagline anyway.

I don't know if this has been mentioned here, but I'm sure some other Central Florida goon will know what I'm talking about. There's been this one radio ad going around for some car dealership and the opening line is "The Japanese earthquake of March 11 has sent shockwaves all the way to the U.S. used car market..."
