I really hope that girl got paid a lot for that, because she is going to be known as "The Freshy-fresh" at least until the end of high school.

Someone a few pages back mentioned that weird chili-pouring contest ad for ziplock bags. While I agree the ad makes no sense, what I'm most curious about is who is this ad aimed at? Who are these people that are pushing their plastic bags to such extremes that their relative strength is a serious concern for them? Don't ziplock bags cost like $3 for a box of 100? Just use two bags!

It was probably easier than that, whoever did it knew where Spidey would be appearing and set the camera so Sabathia would be standing there, as opposed to in the middle of the screen. No way it was unintentional, though, it's pretty funny.

Apparently it's adapted from a 2-year-old British commercial. I think it's pretty funny how they even dubbed over the background "rapper" or whatever that's supposed to be.

If you can pause it at 0:08, and read the fine print, a $5,000 loan at 116.73% APR for 84 months. I'm ashamed to be a fraction of Indian heritage, and a little piece of me died the first time I saw this commercial.

Sweet tricks, mom.


Norm MacDonald has been doing commercials for SafeAuto, which seems to be a car insurance company for when you literally cannot afford car insurance but can't afford to lose your license in a traffic stop, either. The commercials aren't egregiously bad, but they seem to be going for just the right level of awkward forced comedy where it becomes funny, but missing it completely and ending up with an annoying commercial that I hate listening to. A shame.

Oh NO! I was cooking pasta with my husband (because cooking pasta is difficult and requires more than 1 person), and the power went out!

Regardless of the fact that I had no light source, I continued cooking the meal to completion.

Then, I put the meal on a plate, shoved a flashlight under my jowls and attempted to eat the dinner like nothing had happened, but trying to eat with a flashlight lodged under my chin is awkward and hard to do, so I kept dropping the flashlight, which interrupted my meal several times!

Also, I enjoy taking my Olde Brooklyn Lantern with me in public places, like some sort of mentally deficient Paul Revere, but rather than warning people that the British are coming, it warns them that an insane person is approaching, instead.

No, it was a cleaner, more professional commercial. They even offered a money back guarantee, although I'm not exactly sure how you claim you're not satisfied. They made a big deal about how it was only $1 a minute! Like that's supposed to be loving reasonable.

Hey, things like these make it easier to survive some sort of apocalyptic event. Pretty soon people are going to be complaining why the survivors didn't use a Olde Brooklyn Lantern when they went exploring the mutant infested caves during movies. Also I'm sure some people like to pretend they're green lanterns too.

_~ ANIME BABE LOVER 2000 ~_

There's a terrible Fruit by the Foot commercial I've seen a few times where a kid and his mom are shopping and the kid asks for a treat. When the mom refuses, the kid lets out this constant "Pleeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaasssseeeeeeeeeeee" before the mom grabs the Fruit by the Foot box and hands it to him. It's a horrible commerical not just because of how annoying the kid is, but I have a bad feeling that kids will see that commerical and think that's how they should act when they want their mom or dad to buy them a snack.

Also, am I the only one who hates those Vonage commercials with the creepy constantly smiling couple that look like they're from the 50s who welcome their new neighbors with a puppy or pie bundled with an expensive phone bundle? They're not that funny and the woman especially creeps me out when she smiles.

Even if you assume they were cooking on a gas range...

a loving flashlight and a lantern are two different devices for different purposes. That's why they light things up differently.
