Popeye's Chicken

I've said it before, the Popeye's commercials are literally a re-write or two away from becoming The General's Fried Chicken commercial from Undercover Brother.

I can't be the only one who had never heard of Magnum ice cream and thought the first 20 seconds of this commercial were about a chick day-dreaming about a truck driver's giant dick.

You're not far off. The imagery is intentionally evocative of everything you think of when you think of the word "Magnum" (condom not gun).

Attention advertising executives:

Having to listen to anybody chew on or suck down food by way of a boom mic is gross and doesn't encourage me to want to buy your product.

I know you're trying to convince me that the actors/actresses are supposed to be enjoying the food, but really it's just reminiscent of Andrew Zimmern trying to talk around giant mouthfuls of food in Bizarre Foods. Unlike that show, your commercial probably isn't hocking half-rotted chicken embryos that have been buried for nearly a month before they're consumed. That doesn't make it any less gross.

That being said, gently caress everyone responsible for this Kit Kat ad campaign. It strikes this primal font of irritation and anger in me; nails on a chalkboard or balloon rubbing doesn't bother me, but the sound of chewing and crunching drives me up a wall.

that I didn't mean condoms specifically a little better, but the fact of the matter is that the commercial's about as subtle with its sexual imagery as an Axe ad.

It's everywhere. I hate it so much. Why is the giant obnoxious goldfish's voice British? Why is it on every commercial break and WHY is it on every other station I watch.

IF it makes you feel any better, it's a lovely product. When you try to pull the halves apart, the curved cut line that forms the "mouth" rips apart and ruins the bread.

Pink's "Raise Your Glass" is one of the most obnoxious songs I've heard in months, and now it's running in the background of no less than 3 commercials right now.

It's become such a bad earworm that I've woken up two mornings in a row with that drat song as the first thought that enters my mind and the last thing I remember before I go to sleep.

It really is abominable how they market these things.

I have a commercial for the "Justice Coin" here but I don't think it's the exact same commercial we're thinking of here. Same concept, though.

Since I've seen a couple of radio ads dropped in here: if I can help it I will never, ever fill a prescription for Tamiflu ever. It starts with a man coughing, then hoarsely whispering for the entire commercial in a register that annoys me in a way I just can't describe.

All I know is that as soon as my brain realizes the commercial's playing, my arm shoots forward almost involuntarily and hits a different radio preset.

Oh holy gently caress kitkat commercials suck so loving much.

Chewing/drinking/slurping sounds are incredibly unappetizing to me, e.g.:
- KitKat commercials;
- York Peppermint Patty commercials that are aping Requiem for a Dream;
- Taco Bell commercials with the guy sucking his Dorito Loco Taco-stained fingers;
- Any radio commercial for a soda, ever;

and some others I'm sure I've missed. I don't know who likes these things or what focus groups ad companies find that are cool with hearing or watching people eat and drink.

Yet somehow I've always liked this commercial.

The new Old Navy commercials are pretty amazing. They got Chevy Chase, Beverly D'angelo and Juliette Lewis to stand around for 45 seconds and hope someone out there remembers the movie they were in together.

I think it's ironic that Chevy Chase was recently bashing sitcoms (and by extension, Community) as being one of the lowest forms of entertainment. Now he's in an Old Navy commercial.

I guess being an rear end in a top hat your entire life won't pay the bills.

I maintain the worst commercials ever are the one's that heavily feature the sounds of ingestion or digestion. The worst ad ever was for Sunkist on the radio that features really enhanced sounds of someone slurping up Sunkist out of the can and gulping that poo poo noisily down their gullet. Finished off by a horrid "ahhh" noise that no one wants to hear. I almost decided to crash my car off the cliff in anger from this soda ad.

Kit-Kat commercials are the absolute worst for this.

What's so wrong with white people that I constantly hear Taco Bell ruins their insides? Is it serious, or is it a joke reference to a movie or cultural zeitgeist piece of humour? Here's a hint, if you stop eating canned food and mayo out of jars, you'll be able to handle Real World Food, and hell maybe even leave the country and eat Other Stuff, too!

It's probably because Taco Bell meat is made of grade Z chicken asses and/or pulverized meat from retired dairy cows.
