I think the brunette with short hair is kinda cute, and I marvel at the innuendo of her wriggling in line before sitting in Santa's lap.

The Steve and Rusty Wallace USfidelis auto warranty commercial.

#1. The commercial seems to be played a 100 times a day on my tv.

#2. Does Steve Wallace always talk like that, or did he have a cold the day they shot the commercial?

#3 This is the longest commercial evaaar. It is more of a mini-infomercial than a commercial.

I can take some enjoyment out of the Wallace/Wallace commercial because, before that one, there was one with a bigger focus on Steve and clearly the company went "Yeah, I think your famous dad will sell better".

But Esurance...my god, I still can not stand them. Just. Stop. It.

It's a local radio commercial that I hear on the only radio station I listen to. It's probably on all the Cumulus Media stations in Northeast Wisconsin. It's a 60 second commercial encouraging people to recycle while they are on vacation. But the majority of the commercial is a young boy with a speech impedement talking. And he's doing a poor job of reading off the page.

"When we ahr dwiving in ahr caw, mom and dad always bring a bag to put ahr wecycling. It helps the enviwonment and keeps ahr caw clean too. When we ahr camping, we put ahr wecycling in a bag. It keeps ahr campsight clean and keep away waccons."

Then it goes into the jingle, which is also poorly done. I think it's supposed to sound like some kind of lounge singer, but it's hard to do an imitation while singing. "Helping Wiscon-sin (he really emphasizes the sin part), Reduce Reuse Recycle!"

I really wish I could record for you so that you could hear it.

So many of the radio ads are so annoying to me that I turn that station off when they come on.

Okay, I'm upset with the premise of the new Dish Network commercials. This couple comes on and talks about the harsh economic times and how they feel they are paying bills with their entire paycheck every week.

How do they finally figure out a way to cut back on spending?

A. Use less air conditioning/heating and save money on their electric bill each month?

B. Carpool to work or find other ways to lessen their spending on gas?

C. Spend less and save more of their disposable income by limiting frivolous purchases, like perhaps CABLE?

D. Change their cable service from one company to another company (keeping in mind that they are still spending money on cable)?

Of course D is the answer, The commercial is blatant and just fails on every level, so much so that it actually angers me. Thankfully, I've seen how Dish Network is (my parents had it when they lived in California), and I know it honestly doesn't compare to Comcast, whatever the price.

I loathe all of the Just For Men commercials, featuring classic lines like:

-"My hair says experience!" "MY hair says energy!"
-"It's time, Daddy. You'd be a really nice catch for someone."
-"Who's THAT?" "My husband!"
and
-"Your beard is WEIRD!"

I don't know. Emmitt's superior acting ability seems to save his Just for Men commercial for me.

Have you seen this one for the Smart Mop? I mean, have you SEEN THIS?*

First of all, it's hosted by Anthony Sullivan. For whatever reason, I never get commercials or infomercials with Anthony Sullivan in my neck of the woods. I always get Billy Mays. When they started that show with the two of them, I didn't even know who the other guy was.

This guy isn't half the pitchman Billy was. I'm sure this ad was filmed well before the unfortunate tragedy and all, but for me to now suddenly get this guy in a commercial, it's like they're going "Billy's dead but America still needs their handy gadgets and cleaning products!"

TOO SOON.

And not to get off-topic, but I'm still getting Billy Mays commercials like 5-6 times a day. In one, instead of the usual "HI, BILLY MAYS HERE" we all know and love, he's going "HI, BILLY MAYS BACK AGAIN". As though he returned to this mortal coil to share the glory of the Awesome Auger with us.

Anyway. The Smart Mop. It's like a mop with little shammy streamers on it. The guy spills a can of soda on the floor and wipes it up to show us the absorbent power of the mop. Then he holds it over his head to show us how it doesn't drip.

THEN -- and the best part is this brief snippet seems like a drop-in they added in later, which would suggest that someone actually thought "You know, this ad is good, but what it REALLY NEEDS is..." -- they cut to a close-up of a glass and the guy wrings the mop full of soda back into the glass.

And he goes "In these tough times, wring it back into the glass and it's ready to drink!"

If your times are so tough that you're gonna drink wringed-out soda that you spilled on the foor, you know what, spending $20 on a mop you saw on TV might not be the wisest investment for you. Also, why are you buying soda in the first place? Water is free.

There's also other hilarity, like wiping up a mess of ketchup, mustard, and SAND, as if such a combo is so common, and something about the mop helping you keep your head out of the toilet.

This has to be the worst commercial ever. EVER.

Really, though, 2 mops and like 6 Shamwows for $20, you can't beat that deal.

I had to go watch the ad on Youtube to make sure what you typed was actually real.
I've eaten dry food that's fallen on the floor (five second rule) before, but spilled, wringed-out soda??? Crazy.

It's not that bad of a commercial, but it's played so many times a day that I'm ready to punch everyone in the "Chevy on eBay" commercial in the face.

I hate the McDonald's "Oh Cindyyyy!" "Oh Bob!!!" spots for the same reason.

I guess you don't watch Mythbusters. As soon as the food hits the floor, it picks up any and all bacteria it comes in contact with.

I worry more about pet hair than bacteria on food that's dropped on the floor at my house. Cause really, if you beat the dog to the food it usually looks like a dust bunny that swallowed some food.

But wrung out soda... just the idea makes me gag a little. It'd be spongey flavored... bleeeeh

I hate any and all SafeAuto Insurance ads.

The older ones basically said "Yeah, I know I'm a terrible, unsafe driver, but I NEED my car. SafeAuto allows me to still be a menace on the roads while providing the state minimum coverage!"

The newer "It's not rocket science" ads scream GEICO Caveman rip off.

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but not in advertising. It just means you're not creative or smart enough to come up with something original.

That's a funny story, I heard from a few people that he's an asshole. My mom met Virgil and got his autograph for me at the mall about 2 years ago. Charged her 5 dollars, for what I wanted to tell her to get a refund.
