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.

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.

The Trojan Tri-Phoria commercial annoys the piss out of me. This chick gets 3 vibrators at her wedding shower and her husband gets way too excited. Whywoud a guy get excited at the prospect of three vibrators? Is he planning on sticking one in his rear end?

Only stupid, insecure, and close-minded men don't love the idea of their wife/girlfriend having and using vibrators.

Edit: As to why three...well, they can serve as backups, or for when more ladies come to join you.

I haven't decided what side of the question this falls under, but Rob Zombie directed a Woolite commercial.

http://www.movieline.com/2011/06/vi...e-obviously.php

Is that ever going to air on TV, or is it an online-only thing? Woolite doesn't seem like the kind of company to actually air that, and most of people who buy Woolite aren't the kind of people to enjoy that, either.

Those moneymutual and "indian version of moneymutual" commercials piss me off to no end just because of the business. They're essentially legal loan sharks and it boggles my mind how they can do business like that and it's nbd.

Also funny part is in the fine print the APR is something absurd like %497 which made me chuckle.

To get on topic, why is Taco Bell using The Flying Lizards' "Money (That's What I Want)" in their newest ad? I get that they want to because of the repeated lyric "that's what I want," but whenever I see this commercial, all I can think of is Taco Bell wanting my money.

Since creatively bankrupt ad agencies apparently still can't stop making Mac/PC knockoff commercials, now we have Virgin Mobile doing one where they take the "cool Mac dude" role and put T-Mobile in the "borderline retarded PC guy" role.

I wasn't even aware Virgin Mobile still existed.

I can't view youtube at work, but is this the one where the "hip, fun loving" couple make fun of T-Mobile and AT&T merging?

Like the T-Mobile ads themselves, I'm torn between it being a bad ad, and the T-Mobile girl being hot as gently caress.

Now, obviously it's a different girl in the Virgin Mobile ad, but she is also hot as gently caress. (And I suspect is Rachel Bilson, but I can't confirm...)

Ugh, that Cougarlife.com commercial...

First of all, none of the lyrics in the song match up to whatever random words the "vacalist" is singing.

Secondly, the song is terrible anyway.

Thirdly, like 75% of the women it shows in the commercial are clearly not cougars...Hell, a couple of them barely look like they're even 21, let alone the absolute minimum any rational guy would consider a cougar to be (40.)

And fourthly, that woman with the ice cream cone and the clown lips is freaking me out, please remove her from all future advertisements.

And I'm pretty sure the girl doing the fistpump is just stock footage that Adult Swim used at one point in their bumps.

Now that you mention it, it's probably all stock footage. I'm sure there's plenty of 'random band' footage lying around at any decent ad agency, so they just did their best to kind of match up the song to the (probably) non-existent words the singer was mouthing. Makes for a much cheaper ad.

Rollins was the rebel back in the day. He headlined Black Flag, a major punk band, back in the late '70s-early '80s. Fucker was counterculture hardcore.

Rollins voicing over commercials for not just a car brand, but a luxury car brand, is akin to selling out.

If there's a football game on cable during the regular season, it's either Thursday or Monday, and they are the only ones on at the time.

Eh, it's pretty clear they're referring to the fact that with cable, you'll only get the (usually) 4 broadcast games for your market on Sunday. If you live in the market for the Patriots or Jets, and they play each other in the early game, that's what you see, not the Saints playing Green Bay if it's on at the same time on the same channel.

With DirectTV, you get (almost) all games. I think they're still subject to the NFL's asinine blackout rules.

Just saw a KFC commercial acting all about how other restaurants make chicken nuggets and "where on a chicken is a nugget?". The commercial then proceeds to advertise popcorn chicken.

Where on a chicken is the "popcorn", exactly? I know later in the commercial it says that it's "100% premium breast meat", but still. It's the same thing, you pedantic jerks

Actually, it's not. Their popcorn chicken is more like small pieces of chicken strip, you can see the fibers of the meat in it. Just cut up pieces of breast meat. It's not "processed chicken" that is basically scraps that is mechanically removed from bones like nuggets.

Unless things have changed since the last time I cared about smart cars, they are also nowhere near as fuel efficient as they look, and are extremely expensive for what you get.

This, a million times this.

For about the same price or cheaper, you could easily get a gently-used/factory re-certified Honda or Toyota that gets better gas mileage, and actually has, you know...trunk space and room for more than one passenger.

The only reason anyone gets them over a cheap, used Japanese or Korean car is because they are starting to become trendy in some areas/amongst some people.

I wonder how they operate...I mean, obviously their business model is that they go to whoever you're getting you yearly/monthly/whatever check from and say,

"Hey, in the long runmthis will cost you $$$, but make just one payment of $$, and that's less!" so whoever is making the payments agrees. J.G.Wentworth then takes what I assume to be the lion's share of that $$, leaving the client with $...or like half a $.

But are there really that many people with structured settlements out there for this business model to work?!

The Gamestop ad for Batman: Arkham City isn't so much bad, but mind boggling. It shows some scenes from the game, which is fine and all, but then talks about how if you buy the game there, you get a free copy of Batman Forever, and then shows scenes from the movie. Now don't get me wrong, getting a free movie with a game is neat, but Batman Forever? That movie doesn't even fit with this game's style at all. Would made a lot more sense to use one of the Nolan movies or Mask of the Phantasm.
