The thing that gets me about this commercial is this:

In Cars, the cars are people, right? But the pet boutique ALSO has cars in it! So in the Cars universe, people have other people for pets?

The Cars universe is a hosed-up place, man. It's not too far off from the core Disney universe though, where dog-men have dogs for pets. I guess it's some kind of Planet of the Apes type thing.

I would watch Planet of the Vehicles, where the second-class vehicles rebel.

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.

It's funny too, since the AT&T commercials are all about how they and T-Mobile are one company now.

T-Mobile was the only one left with remotely reasonable plans and contracts, who do I switch to once my contract is up?

This. In marketing classes from grad school they showed us ads like "plop plop fizz fizz" for alka seltzer and other various ads that were among the most memorable of all time and while most were very humorous they did not result in people actually buying the product.

I thought that one was the "That's a spicy meatball!" ad, which boosted sales of spaghetti but no one could remember it was an Alka-Seltzer commercial.

This is a pretty stupid reason to hate a commercial, but the same drat commercial has been playing in front of every single blip video I've watched in the past week (and I watch a fair amount of blip videos). I forgot what it was even for, I think an HTC phone. But it begins with some piano notes and a guy saying "YOU are the next trending topic..." and ends with a little girl singing a song, of which only four words are audible until it's cut off for more narration.

I'm sure that girl is talented and that song is probably not terrible for how old she is. But goddamn, I wouldn't know, because I only know four words of it that run on a loop in my head throughout the day. I shouldn't be this annoyed about it, but it plays so often before blip videos and on TV that I have to dive for the mute button every time, and even then just knowing it's on puts that four-word song in my head over and over and over.

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.

There's a new Pepsi summer commercial out that's just horrible (can't find it on video yet). There are polar bears with Coca Cola and this yacht comes out of nowhere with a "tanned" polar bear with others in bikinis. He is talking about partying and throws them Pepsis.

The animation just seems incredibly amateur and the voices are awful. It almost looks like a student project. I have a feeling I will be seeing a lot of this one.

They're really going after the old Coke standby commercials, I've seen a couple with Santa at the beach drinking Pepsi because he's only obligated to drink Coke when he's on business.

I have to admit I laughed when the brown bear took his sunglasses off to reveal tan lines, though.

What bothers me most about that commercial is the part where they show Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, presumably having just finished doing it, and they both fall back on the bed exhaling heavily. How is this possible? Who was on top???

The two most irritating ads on right now:

1) The car ad where it's a little girl in the driver's seat, fidgeting around while her dad lectures her, until he gives her the keys and she's actually a teenager (a 20-something teenager) and she drives off.

The dad in this drives me crazy; he seems really overprotective and controlling, and reminds me too much of my dad and brings up memories of troubles I've had with him. Inspiring thoughts of familial problems is not a good way to sell cars.

I'm pretty sure they didn't take your personal abusive upbringing, and the way you could somehow associate it here, in mind when they were making the commercial.

I think there is also a 70's version of this, but its basically an endless stream(provided you keep clicking on the next highest number,(i'm up to 240) of commercials from the 80's.

Sure, I'm probably crazy for being entranced by this, but the level of crazy needed to have both recorded all this and then transferred to computer and then thus to youtube represents a serious obsession. An obsession that none of us on something awful will ever smell like due to personal hygiene neglect that this kind of dedication implies.

This one drives me crazy too, but then again every Axe ad ever made pulls some variation of that poo poo. The part that always gets me about those commercials is the demo where they advise you to basically completely douse yourself in the stuff ("under your arms and across your chest " )

At that point you're going to leave a cloud of Axe behind you everywhere you go. Which I guess is the point?

At least they quit using the phrase "double pits to chesty" which just makes me want to punch any living thing in my vicinity.

And yeah, it's been a long time since I was in high school but I remember it being a phase where people just spray themselves with a giant cloud of whatever kind of cologne they have because they don't know any better (I was one of those people, but at least Polo Sport smelled kind of nice).

I wonder whether re-airing old commercials would be a decent marketing strategy. I think that the Frito Bandito and Burger King were pretty clever. There have been some "classic" products in their original style of packaging around lately, so I don't see why it wouldn't work just as well to put out the old ads, too.

And didn't this Coke commercial go viral back in its day? Maybe it'd work today.
