As far as the Cadbury Eyebrows goes, I don't hate it but I'm sure weirded out by it.
My #1 most hated commerical right now is this Taco Bell one with the guy that steals pennies from everybody to buy a burrito and doesn't even pay the taxes. Seriously, he needs to be punched the fuck out.
Why is the man in sports themed commercials always a moron / inconsiderate bastard?
The one that brought this to mind is a radio commercial.
From the comments, many people love it. To me, I think the same thing that I think when I see Courtney Thorne-Smith pretending to be married to Jim Belushi and he does something ridiculous. To be blunt, the guy is an asshole and why does his wife put up with his shit?
And what does it mean that AT&T choose to make this a commercial? Is this how they see sports fans, as selfish people who turn into mindless automatons for the three hours that the game is on?
Believe me, I know I'm thinking about this commercial way too much, but that's why I hate it so much.
The Subway Chicken Marinara commercial where the businessmen are supposed to sound like children but sound like they're sucking helium instead.
What's so disappointing is that I like the premise. He's got a great lunch and they try the old grade school thing about trying to trade lunches. And then the punchline is when the other guy tries to act like the bully he was in grade school, and then they all remember that they're businessmen, not children.
But the ridiculous voices are totally unnecessary. I think it would be much funnier with normal voices.
Originally posted by StaggerLeeI weep that nobody has mentioned the cheer leading 5 year olds in the Gap ads. I want to punch them all in the throat.
Agreed, at least in the case of the first part. It is an annoying and disturbing ad.
The ads I hate worse are ones with "Mike" from Ford who shows us a couple buying a Ford car. Mike (that might not be his name) then gets to act snarky while noting their reaction ("Their reaction...they're texting...each other" or "The woman is doing her happy dance...I don't what the guy's doing"). Just SHUT UP dude.
"Put on your helmets, we'll be reaching speeds of 3!" "It was nice of you to give that dead woman another chance." "All right, look alive everybody...oh sorry Susan."- MST3K: Space Mutiny Click Here (myspace.com)
ANYWAY, two commercials I hate now, have to be a) the Troy Paulamaulo head and shoulders commercials. He's annoying as fuck, and I don't care about his hair. and b) the NFL commercials with the SUUUUUUPER slow motion, and the guy.............who............talks..........really ...................slowly. Reminds me of a Randy Orton promo.
Had to get thru Syd Straw to see Camper Van Beethoven At Bogart's in Cincinnati in 1988 or '89. She did come out with a song I liked later (CBGB's), but man, we couldn't wait for her to get off stage. Peeee-Ewwww!
