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.

Eh, the guy retired from acting to coach kids' softball in New Jersey. I can't hate on him for that. And that commercial is a lot funnier than the Richard Lewis/Rosanne one...

I think the best one wasdefinitely the Aretha Franklin/Liza Minnelli one, but only because I love Lucielle 2Liza Minnelli.


And I may be remembering the commercial wrong, but I don't know if Dominos is saying "Kids hate this pizza, but cool adults will" so much as they're saying "Get this pizza, and get a second one discounted in case you or someone you're eating with doesn't like it. Probably kids."

She's also in a Metamucil commercial.
The shape of her head bothers me, it's like a giant fleshtoned pumpkin.

Something about the phrase "giant fleshtoned pumpkin" mas kept me laughing for the last few minutes.

I dunno, I just find her to be cute. She kinda bothered me at first, but then she grew on me, I guess. She's not overly quirky like most girls in commericals, so maybe that's why.


Back on topic, I forget what phone it's for, but whoever thought the commercial with the girl screaming at the top of her lungs at a picture of a spider was a good idea can gently caress right off. Commericals are loud enough in the first place, now this one just has screaming.

e: Oh, man, a Farmers insurance commerical just played on the radio with J.K. Simmonds, and it was kind of like listening to a Cave Johnson bit. I like that commercial.

Have they had a caveman commercial in like, the last year?

They come on all of the time when they play NHL games on Versus, because they're the official sponsor of it. There are a few different ones, and they're all "Let's go to the caveman for a reports on hockey!", and every time he tries to talk, there's something Geico nearby so he gets all offended. They're pretty insufferable, because there would be at least one every break.

I like those eBay commercials, but I can't say that I agree with the core concept of them. There are a lot of ads out there that take a well-know song, change the lyrics to fit their thing, and then do some dumb series of ads with it. While I was watching that "That's on eBay!" commercial just now, all I could think of was UPS's dumb "That's Logistics!" campaign, and I got kind of angry.

e: I think the difference is that the eBay commercials have people that seem to know how ridiculous it is, and are trying to have fun doing it, while others actually try to get the ads taken seriously.

Why is this so terrible? "We're cheaper than the other guy" is one of the oldest, simplest forms of advertising. Should Blockbuster not try to turn their company around by going after the millions of people who just quit Netflix?

Yeah, if anything, I think it's a really good strike back at them. I don't see why they shouldn't be bragging about their low rates when Netflix just lost a bunch of customers because of price, and about how all of the stuff can be gotten in one place instead of by 2 or more services. It actually made me laugh because it was obvious what they were going for.

The reason behind the splitting and cost hikes is to be able to offer more and better streaming content. For the price, Blockbuster simply will not be able to offer as much as Netflix. Anyone who signs on with them is going to be sorely disappointed. This is a last ditch effort by Blockbuster to remain relevant and it's going to crash and burn.

Blockbuster isn't targeting the well-informed, they're targeting the people who had Netflix, and had knee-jerk reaction to abandon ship. And even then, some people just want a cheap service that'll give them most things, but not in every medium, rather than a more expensive service that will give them more things, but in one medium.

There are countless market studies out there that point to women as the main decision maker for household day-to-day spending, especially as regards food and beverages. There's a drat good reason advertising for so many things are aimed at women, they're the ones going out to buy the items.

While I won't argue the study or its affects on advertising, this only make me think of that AT&T Commercial where the wife freaks out because the husband went out and bought something. Who is that geared towards? Like, how does that make the product or service appealing to anyone?

That's a good point: I think I've only seen the Truvia ones on cable stations like the Cooking Channel.

I'm still not sure which is worse - original jingles that try to sound like real (pop) songs, or real songs that are re-purposed into jingles. Probably the latter, especially when they just play the chorus over and over (like in that creepy Hershey's "I Melt with You" commercial).

I can't see any of those "I Melt With You" commercials anymore without thinking of this thread. It always seemed pretty innocuous to me because I had never really listened to the song before, and now I just think of a goon the psoted "IT'S NOT ABOUT CHOCOLATE, HERSHEY!

In addition to all that other fakeness, I'm convinced that whenever you see a hand come into the frame holding a little card (that says something like 'only 99') over a shot of a sandwich, that its been superimposed there in post production. I can't quite figure out why they would go through the trouble of doing that instead of just doing it for real in the shot, but something about the way the hand moves makes me think it's not really there.

I think it's so that they can change the price, if need be. Like, suddenly it's not 99c for a chicken sandwich, but is 1.99 for a chicken sandwich and a coke. Go get that stock footage and put a new hand in there!

I don't know why I go to Mcdonalds. Their fries are the best, but I'm a meat-eater and would never go somewhere just for fries. Every time I take that 1st bite of a Mcds burger (or mcrib) I think "oh yeah this is what it tastes like, and what it's tasted like every single time I've been here, why the gently caress did I get a craving to come here?" It doesn't taste like normal meat but somehow I'm drawn to it and thinking about it until I get that 1st disappointing bite.

They're putting something in it I swear, the corporations and their chemicals man. I mean wendy's and BK aren't great but their burgers DO taste like actual beef, they're just as close to work as Mcds if I'm wanting something fast, why do I even consider Mcd's an option?
