I know this is the hate thread, but I saw this in the theatre yesterday and loved it. Probably will start to hate it with time, but for now, I still think it's pretty fun.

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.

This kind of goes back to the woman screaming about the cell phone spider.

Fred Meyer is the Pacific Northwest branch of Kroger, and they are doing these horrible commercials, super low budget, featuring "price blasters." I've seen three or four different variations, but they all make some loving annoying sound right at the start of the commercial. One is a UFO making an alarm type sound.

Why make a commercial that seems to set out to make people wanna change the channel?

I HATE the cellphone commercial, so much that I can't even remember the company, where the husband comes in and says, "I got us a messaging plan" or the like, and the wife says, "and where is this nonexistant money coming from" and then something to the effect of "I should have married [some name]."

What a hateful bitch. It's not funny, at all, she just comes off as a hateful bitch. I guess this is taking the "dunce husband, smart wife" routine to the next level?

Really? I think the construction workers are the worst. The black guy has a full sandwich when the other guys play Rock, Paper, Scissors. They play one round, turn back to the black guy and he had EATEN THE WHOLE SANDWICH IN FIVE SECONDS!

There's a longer version of that commercial where they argue about how to do it (on three or go) and then do best two out of three. I saw that version first, and only once. It makes more sense, but it's also more grating.

I have an odd commercial question, I've noticed that a couple of different companies have started using Youtube footage. Are they paying people for these?

Wasn't there something recently about how it's legal to use tweets about products in commercials without paying? Maybe this falls under the same thing?

So, this Cheerios commercial. I guess I don't hate it as much as I hate its overuse, but my brain kind of seizes up every time because it can't tell if it's seeing a three year old or an obnoxious midget hipster.

Is this just an old commercial or did they reuse the "that's for babies" but with a different kid? I swear this commercial was in heavy rotation awhile (like 4 years) ago, but I remember the kid being different.

Maybe I'm the only one in TVIV that watches E! more often than just for The Soup, but man MAN this commercial is annoying.

Mostly for the repeated pronunciation of sublime as "subleem"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3p5uFChQFs

I get that Loreal is French, but saying it like that when the rest of the commercial is in English, and the announcer has one of those "typical American" accents just sounds ... weird.

High school kids see a ton of R-rated movies, both in theaters and on DVD when they release the unrated cut that you don't need an ID to buy. It looks like some execs said "Hey, a bunch of teenagers loved The Hangover, why don't we make a version of that specifically aimed at teens? And we'll make it a found footage movie since kids love their YouTubes! Cocaine for everyone!"

And, at least at the high school I teach at, it's got lots of buzz, so the formula must be working.

I guess I'm kind of glad that texting and driving is getting the same attention as drinking and driving, or not doing meth or smoking cigarettes.

The commercials may be annoying but they raise awareness. I teach in a small rural community and we had a former graduate die because she was checking a text and her car was hit by a train (it was one of those stops that doesn't have the bars that come down). It led to a fairly extensive "X the Text" campaign at our school.

Honestly, working with teenagers, repetition is good for them.

They can't be. I have no idea how my insurance increased when I moved from Saginaw to a smaller town outside of Grand Rapids.

And, talking about Beats audio, I have to nitpick that commercial with the guy running, playing that "Feel so close to you right now" song. One of two things has to happen, either he is a loving moron that doesn't know that Rio Vista is a brisk 4-5 minute walk from his apartment door, or he has that song on repeat while he is jogging. Commercial doesn't make a lot of sense, and I get that AT&T wants you to feel so close to being lost in the music. Either way, he needs to feel so close to a bus that runs a stop sign.

I like the Olympics one better, where the guy listens to the Iliad. Come to think of it, though, I'm not actually sure if they're selling the same product.
