The iced tea ads where the lady sees her van frozen over or the guy buys a half gallon of the stuff to drink by himself. Just fine as they are but i cannot loving stand the gulpy sounds they make as they drink it. Probably more just a pet peeve of mine but still.

I still find it really insane how T-Mobile continues to air their ads bashing AT&T when they got bought out by them 3+ months ago. I'm also not sure if you have T-Mobile or go get a phone from them now you'll even have one of those special contracts once the merger is approved. I sincerely AT&T lets those exist.

Alltel was still running ads ripping Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile for quite a while after the Verizon purchase was cleared, too.

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.

You guys don't really think they didn't know what they were doing here, do you?

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.

Apparently Domino's has never heard of the Arch Deluxe fiasco, because they have a commercial about how kids will hate their new line of "gourmet" pizzas, but adults will love them.

Is it just me (or my cable provider), or do there seem to be a fuckton of ads for insurance companies on lately? Allstate, Farmer's, State Farm, 21st Century, Geico, Progressive, The General, and that's just the ones I recall off the top of my head.

Speaking of the General, why does he roll with a penguin? Is he a big fan of Linux as well?

I'm speaking strictly to life insurance here, but it's one of the very few commodities that's actually gone down in price over the years because people are living longer. Seems to be the same in auto because by and wide, people are driving safer and safety technology in cars is improving. Likewise for homes made of better building materials, less fire hazards, etc.

I believe one of the first General commercials had him in Antartica for... some reason, and a bunch of those penguins were around. Guess he just stuck.

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.

I don't even get the point of that commercial. I guess they could be trying to say that their screens are really lifelike, but from what I remember they don't even say anything to that effect. And anyway you can actually see the phone's screen on TV and can tell it's a phone with a picture of a spider on it.

It'd be a pretty decent commercial for LSD though.

They do mention the colors and screen resolution as I recall so that's something, and if you're going to sell it on that point, I'll even buy the girl's freakout (loud and annoying as it is), but when you're showing your phone getting smashed to poo poo, that's probably not how you want to show the thing off.

There's an ad on ESPN Radio.com where this fellow rambles on and on about the aliens that are coming, how they're going to make him one of their generals, and how he can communicate with dolphins.

Seriously, it goes on like this for 45 seconds, and is interrupted about every 15 with something like, "Wouldn't you rather be listening to ESPN Radio than this guy?" or something.

It seriously makes me want to punch whatever exec thought this was a good idea.

I worked in radio for about 5 years, heard that and got a good laugh out of it because it sounds like a jab at Art Bell and George Noory.

I was watching TV last night and saw a commercial for the latest "Kids Bop" and noticed that they were prominently saying that one of the songs is Lady Gaga's "Born This Way." Sensing that something might be a little off by this I looked online and surprise surprise they use a sanitized version of the song that removes any reference to sexual orientation, race, wealth or nationality. It kind of misses the whole point of the song.

If they're gonna sanitize the hell out of it and use different lyrics or whatever, why even have the song on the CD at all?

Who has their toilet paper just sitting out on a table or something and not hanging off a roller? Even if they do have it sitting out why would you want to take the extra step of covering and uncovering it?

That does suck but at least it's free (in exchange for signing up for constant emails or something, I'm sure), and the puppy getting a quick nod was cool.
