I think the stadium-ad is a dig at the Allstate ad where President Palmer talks about the fans raising their fingers (#1) at the game then raising other fingers at each other in the parking lot after the game. Haven't you seen that one? That's how I took it, anyway.

I hate those PartyPoker ads of late. I don't mind the concept, but the voice that goes "OOHH!!! PARTY POKER!!!" is SO annoying! Gah!

I thought it was a dig at Geico, where Kenny Mayne is sarcasticly saying he must be the ONLY one not saving "a bunch of money by switching to Geico".

But after typing that out, it doesnt even sound close.

I think you're right.



They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

I just saw a tampon commercial where a woman in a supermarket asks a female shopper something like, "Don't you hate it when your mini-pad soaks through?" Seconds later, she's demonstrating for said shopper the absorbancy of the brand mini-pad by pouring liquid into it, and implores the customer to feel the pad. Um, yeah. "Hey, run your finger ALL OVER THIS WET FRIGGIN TAMPON!!!"

Not a personal favorite, really...

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"They're plump, ripe, and priced to move. Get your fat Samoan today!" (Packman V2)


I'm amazed I was able to forget this one, but an Audi ad. It's all in the song. "Streets of tomorroooow... to lead, not to follow (I'll drive t--)" (This would be the part where I change the channel, as shooting the TV would be impractical.) It's everything that's wrong about music meant to sell cars to people who've been working long enough to afford them, and in the process, lost their taste in music.

Count me in as someone that usually enjoys Kenny Mayne but can't STAND his Progressive car insurance commercials.

There's a new commercial for this birth control pill called Yaz. First, the name itself is horrifying. Is this the pill they used to call Yasmine? Why the hell would you change it (or ever pick Yaz)? Anyway, this commercial is ridiculous. These women are out at a club or a bar or something and one of them (who we learn at the end of the commercial is a doctor) goes through the usual spiel of what the drug is for and what side effects it has and who should avoid using it. It is so astoundingly contrived and unlikely. Who would ever have a conversation like that in real life, doctor or not?

Unless it's an attempt to capitalize on the huge market of female Red Sox fans who still remember the '67 Impossible Dream season and remain fertile. There's gotta be dozens of them.

The new Chrysler commercials with Dr. Dieter Zetsch (Dr. Z). Something about this guy just rubs me the wrong way - I think it's the funky mustache. He just creeps me out.

The Cingular GoPhone ad (with the mom and daughter saying nice things to each other in the tone of an argument) has worn out its welcome. Clever once or twice, but not 80 BILLION times.

I am not going to see Crank for a while, or at least until the commercials go away.

I am getting sick of the ones with the dads strapped to a chair watching his daughter or family rack up the cell minutes then one of them freaks out because "Hey he has more minutes than me".

I also don't like the new commercials for an insurance company (maybe Geico) that have a "celebrity" on it: Charo, Little Richard, the movie voice over guy. And I think there is one with Burt Bacharach. I am just waiting for Kato Kaelin to make an appearance.

Oh...and I am getting tired of movie commercials for "The Wickerman".

These are usually attention-getting on the first showing, but they wear on the nerves very quickly, except for the Little Richard one. Man, I can watch that one over and over. The expressionless face on the woman talking while Little Richard gets all "wooooooo" on the story is priceless.

I just hate how boring the average person is in those commericals. It's kind of insulting to insinuate that your customers are monotonic, daft bastards.

In Canada, there's a series of advertisements for BELL MOBILITY, with a couple of CGI animated beavers. They're all very, very annoying...especially with the one who's dancing to "I'm So Excited" from the Pointer Sisters.

Bell is my cellphone service provider, and after seeing these ads...it's inspiring me to switch to another carrier. That, and the fact that their rates and service suck....but maybe the stupid commericials are merely the catalyst.

I deliberately sought out this topic thanks to this commercial:

"SpongeBob No-pants."

Wow, what a horribly inappropriate commercial. The overplaying is ridiculous as well.

Are those his kids? Is he the step-dad? How does he know they won't come back?

They aren't a family that is OK with casual nudity - he's trying to shock her. That means it would shock the kids too. This guy wants to shock kids with his soapy manhood.

There's no better pairing than a naked man and children's shows.

And beyond that, nothing says "Burger King" better than a soapy, naked man & children's shows. I wonder if Sponge Bob No Pants is brought to us by the same ad agency as the massively creepy Burger King character. Eeeesh.

I laugh every time I see that commercial.

Of course, I also went as the Burger King for halloween, so I might be biased :)
