They used to run a commercial for our local DSL service where this annoying little kid keeps pestering his brother to get off the computer...

Kid: It's my turn!
Brother: It's still dowloading.
Kid: It's my turn!
Brother: It's STILL DOWLOADING.
Kid: It's my turn! It's my turn! It's my turn!
Brother: It's... STILL... DOWLOADING.
Kid: It's my turn!
Brother (indicating barely-moving progress bar): Hello?
Kid: <h1>MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!</h1>

I wanna kill that kid. I really, really wanna kill that kid.

Sounds like my brother Kryten. Really annoying. About 10 minutes ago, he was playing a game that is mine/my sisters. I said, did you ask? He replys that he asked my sister. I say, we'll see about that. He immediately confesses to have been lying.

I love that Burger King commercial, with Shaq ordering an Xtreme Bacon with Cheese Whopper. It shows everything from his point of view, as other customers say hi, and then the BK cashier asks him what he wants. His delivery is so flat, it's hilarious.

The phrase "phoning it in" is pretty cliche, but I honestly do think he phoned it in. I mean, watch the commercial again. Why else would they go out of their way to never show his face in the commercial? And why is his voice so distant, quiet, and unemotional?

My theory is, he was too busy to make it to the commercial shoot, so the director called him, held the phone into a microphone and told him to quickly say all of his lines. Then they changed the camera angles around, to make it look like its from Shaq's perspective.

I wonder how many millions of dollars he got for saying "I want an extreme bacon with cheese whopper" into a telephone?

I hate those McDonalds ones at the moment with the singing. They annoy me sooo much.

Its funny how kids on TV are so annoying, yet if an accident such as a car crash is related to a child getting injured, everyone calls it a huge tragedy. Im not saying it's not, but ya know... (I dont know how to finish that sentance)

The new Philips DVD recorder shows people throwing out their wedding video because they are recording it on a format that can stand the test of time... a DVD RW... (RW diskss are notorious for degrading quickly)

Grr! There's this stupid, stupid ad for some chocolate drumstick or some similar pre-packaged cone-based icecream showing these three morons eating these icecream cones and hearing what they're thinking as they discover the chocolate fudge centre.  Gawd, I HATE IT!

"Oh, oh... it can't be... it IS! A choccy tip!"

Another one for a hand held digital camera for kids, show the kids making a music video with editing and good blue screen work... The footage they showed the kids made was broadcast quality... It made me want to throw up, but I have a fealing it is the same for everyone‘s fields.

Haha, I agree. The commercials aren't that great, but it brings a smile to my face to see Grimace and the Hamburglar again. I haven't seen them in a long time...that homo Ronald McDonald keeps hogging the spotlight.

^ I feel that way about commecials for drugs where its got picture of middle-age people cavorting about while the narrator tells you that Such-and-such could be right for you. And says talk to your doctor. ABOUT WHAT!?! Are you going to the doctor and say:
"Hey... is *Zizzlerxaneonpopliger* right for me?"
"What are you experiencing?"
"I... don't... know..."

"Ask your doctor if Zizzlerxaneonpopliger. is right for you. He'll say no. Ignore him, he's a quack. Zizzlerxaneonpopliger can cause certain side effects, including dry mouth, nausea, explosive diarrhea, biblical-style boils, loss of all teeth, brain melting, monsterism, inflamation of the testicles, and chronic, severe death. If you are pregnant, nursing, or an oxygen-breather, do not take Zizzlerxaneonpopliger. Zizzlerxaneonpopliger does not work on people born in months with an R, J, Y, or U. Do not taunt Zizzlerxaneonpopliger. Zizzlerxaneonpopliger knows where you live. Fear Zizzlerxaneonpopliger. Offer up your first-born son to Zizzlerxaneonpopliger. It is Zizzlerxaneonpopliger's will."

My friend hates those new prescription drug ads. Once he hears the words "controlled realease" he, being a pharmacy techincian, snaps out loud: "NO! They mean extended release! There's no such thing a controlled release tablet! It can only release the chemicals as fast as the body can metablolize it!"
That is true.

It used to be tampon ads that ruined my appitite while watching TV and eating at the same time. Now its ads like those Kryten. The worst is when they get into specific ass problems:
...may cause diarrhea, loose stools, anal leakage, thunderous flatulence, anal frostbite...

I hate tampon adverts showing women who are happy after putting in a tampon. As if that makes them happy. And what 's the big deal with the blue fluid they absorb? Can't they use real blood?

The only good thing that ever happened to a tampon was being elected class mascot, in the 4th year of secondary.
Some guys painted a face on it, after colouring it red. Then they hung it on the blackboard.
