I really loving hate the MyLife commercials.

Yes, you stupid cow, they're called stalkers and bill collectors. I hope they find you and hack you to pieces.

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.

That bugs me, too, but for a different reason, Unless it's a ratty paperback, I never fold down the corners of a book, especially a hardback.

I think you're reaching. The ad is probably pretty rooted in reality, where the dad still sees his daughter as his "little girl" and it's difficult to accept she's growing up. He gave her the keys and told her to be safe, there was no overprotective or controlling aspects besides a father sending his daughter on one of her first driving trips alone.

Besides, the little girl is cute:

Their new one with the "Whale" is also god-awful. It seems like it was written for Ken Jeong but since he's too popular now its just some other short Asian man talking with a high pitched voice.

I wonder how much they paid to loop a couple of seconds of "For What It's Worth" in the background?

I bought one as a kid cause it had Aqua's Barbie Girl on it. Of course it was the most limp-wristed CD ever conceived of, and I quickly tossed it in the trash. Yet I still have my Now! 5 and Now! 6 CDs which are crappy radio edits, something just as bad IMHO.

So the Now! series is like the K-Tel records from the 70s?

Do people not just keep their extra rolls of toilet paper under the sink

The bathroom in my apartment is hosed up because the toilet paper holder is mounted in such a way that I would have to reach back to my left and down about a foot, so I keep the TP on top of the tank and the extra rolls under the sink.

I've never had luck with bagless vacs. The problem they describe in the commercial with the filter getting clogged and losing suction is spot on. Rather than buy a Dyson, I bought a reconditioned bag upright on the cheap and have been happy with it ever since.

I got a Bissell bagless for about $70 and it does a pretty decent job considering how much cat hair it has to suck up. I just take it apart after each use and clean all the parts.

This is more a nitpick than anything else:

The Subaru ad where the guy goes to the junkyard where his crashed car sits. He reaches in and takes off the gear shift knob and puts it in his pocket. At the end, you see it on the front seat of his new car.

I haven't seen the ad but from the description it just sounds like the shifter knob had sentimental value so the guy went and got it, and now it's on the front seat of his new car so he can have a piece of his old car in his new one.

So, he put the knob in his pocket, got in the car, and then removed the knob and put it on the seat. That's the odd part.

I checked with my friend and he said he is not subject to the blackout rule. If a game is on a local channel, you will be directed to that channel, otherwise, you'll see it on a package channel.

Yeah, someone has to explain this to me. The Smartcar weighs 235 lbs. and gets 41 mpg highway. A Honda Civic weighs over 10 times as much and gets 39 mpg highway. Whoever designed the Smartcar really hosed that up. I also can't imagine driving the Smartcar on a windy highway, I get blown around a little bit in my Civic as it is.

I think the Smart is being marketed as a city car. I sure as hell wouldn't want to go up against big rigs in a Smart.

Found this today. Makes me want a McRib even less.

quote:

The sandwich contains a staggering 70 different ingredients, the least innocuous of which are “pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach.” Add in some azodicarbonamide, ammonium sulfate, ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides and… well, you get the idea.
