Three more I hate....
*The Lowe's commerical with the guy asking the woman working there to pretend to be his wife and react to his gift ideas. Lowe's is one of the last places I'd shop for a woman. Then he ends up a buying her a Lowe's gift card. Yeah, that way she can pick out that sweet power drill she's been wanting.
*Verizon with the guy giving his family phones. 'Saving the best for numero uno' Yeah, good for you. If you're buying phones, get yourself the best one. You don't have to brag to yourself (and your massive country sized network) about the fact.
*I don't hate this one...It's annoying but mildly amusing...Life Alert and all I have to do is to quote C. Everett Coop "You can live alone without being alone...and that's why I wear one too."
Merry Christmas everybody

I hate the commercials that show someone coughing into his/her hand, and then the hand starts talking to him/her, b*tching about germs.

I can't stand that commercial where there's a bunch of people break-dancing and using their Visa cards, and then one person uses a check, and everyone stops dancing. What the heck does that even mean? What horrific kind of store is this in which people can only move by break-dancing? And why would one person paying with a check have any effect on whether everyone else can keep dancing? Aaagh!

I've hated pretty much every iteration of that commercial. The idea that check cards are faster than cash is ludicrous, the only place that this ever seems to be the case is at Chipotle, it's almost like they don't wait for an approval. Like it's just automatic. They are faster than checks, though.

And I agree with McLovin, too. I may have liked the commercial but the idea behind it is stupid. They act like you swipe the card and leave. What about waiting for authorization, signing the card, and getting your extra receipt? When I worked in retail at a cash register I always preferred people pay with cash as it made the transactions go quicker.

Am I McLovin, now?

I'm getting pretty damn sick of that "Rock Me Gently" joint. That song is just awful, and if they were aiming for "ironic absurdist singalong", they failed horribly.

I can't believe I haven't mentioned this yet, but the damn Mercury campaign. All of them. Why? That incredibly stupid tagline. "You gotta put Mercury on your list."
They sell themselves short in their own marketing campaign, and I don't think they even realize it! It's like they think it's the most genius thing they've ever heard or something. Instead its like a beg or a plea to just consider them. Idjits.

This new Cheetos commercial in the laundromat. They got me up to the point where the girl eats the Cheeto. CREEPY. Like, girl eating the ice cream in the Black Hole Sun level creepy.

"Oh No!!!! NEXT DAY FLOORS IS HERE!!!"

"Yeah, I love these floors."
"I was talking about the baby!" *slap*
If they were going to make terrible computers with corny dialogue, at least hire real actors! If I see one of their commercials one more time, I may have to jump out the window!!
Don't worry, I'm on the first floor

I've been home from work with a sinus infection for the past three days, so this thread is about to get a huge serving of Rollie-hate (and -love). I think I've watched more TV in the past three days than I had in the previous three months.
"It's all about the O." Hey guys, come to overstock.com and give your girlfriend...an orgasm? This has to be the first time that a product has been literally compared to an orgasm. I know the purpose of advertising is to compare one's product to favorable things, but...huh?
"Hey MJ, I'M WEARING YOUR UNDERWEAR!" The thought of Cuba Gooding, Jr. makes me sick enough as is, but him and Michael Jordan consulting on underwear choices? Blech.
The one where Jeff Van Gundy's cell phone goes off to remind him that ESPN has NBA games on Sunday. That ringtone is just hilarious, for some reason.

Another like: the one where the Dalmations start fleeing their abodes to the tune of Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak". Great song.
