I hate that one that was shown last year for CitiBank.  Where it shows a woman going rock climbing that looks like the Grand Canyon.  The song sounds like Katy Perry on ecstacy singing, "Somebody Mash Potatoes"! 

I hate that one for Clorox that shows the toilets and the VO says, "The John, The Oval Office, The Loo, The Porcelan Throne". 

I hate that one for Hershey's Syrup where it shows the kids and it says, "Stir It!  Stir It!  Stir Stir Stir It Up!"  Yeah, 'Stir it Up all right' and encourge the obesity epidemic in this country to go sky high!

Don't forget those ones for Safelite.  Where at the end it plays the jingle, "Safeglass Repair Safelite Replace".   It sounds like they're saying, "Safeglad Repair Safeglass Replace".

There is a commercial that doesn't exist, and it opens with a long shot of a helicopter, mid-air, crying loudly onto the birds below it, killing them. We then smash-cut to the inside of an abandoned grocery store, where a masked thief is running around SUSPICIOUSLY, wielding an empty burlap sack labelled "Goods!!!!!!" with exactly that many exclamation marks. The commercial is live action, but for some reason, all the items in the store are cartoon envelopes with eyes and mouths, each one a different colour (of the rainbow). The music for "Who likes short shorts" begins to play, and the items in the shop all start singing "PLEASE DON'T STEAL US" in tune to the music. They are moving back and forth, expanding and contracting, much to the thief's dismay. This continues for about four minutes, with the "duh-duh-duh DUH DUH DUH DUH" melody of the song replaced occasionally with the sound of an angry duck, quacking "quack-quack-quack QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK." The screen tilts infrequently to the disposition of a neglected toddler. Finally, once the thief has grabbed each and every cartoon envelope, we cut to an exterior shot of an erupting volcano, over which the thief's screams can be heard, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" and then we smash cut to black. Some white text fades onto the screen in silence:

PAID FOR BY THE ULTERIOR MOTIVE COMMITTEE OF YUGOSLAVIA.
(Propaganda Machine Vortex #899)

And then everyone's tv stops working. I hate it. frown

If you're going to indulge in potent psychoactive substances, at least offer to share...

Most any TV commercial featuring actors portraying real clients or consumers really grates against my nerves.

I hate those State Farm commericals the ones with the 20-somethings in an apartment who magically get an angent just by singing the jingle, and then a sandwich, hot tub, and a girl from another apartment.

Also, that other State Farm one where the girls are shopping for a purse and the other girl sings, "I don't have State Farm but insurance finds me money!"  What are they trying to do?  Make insurance sound hip?

Those ones from Rosland Captial with William Devaine are monotonious, too!

The term "Hump Day" has been around for years. I think it originated on a radio station, but I'm not sure.

I don't think that necessarily has to do with 'Hump Day' regaining popularity, as 'Hump Day' does not physically entail anything sexual. It's likely more of a coincidence, or even more likely some lie that the media made up.

She does that a lot. Anyway, I think all commercials with
Ariana Grande on Nick are annoying because they make her act stupid and her voice is so annoying.

I can at least respect advertising to some degree when it's original/clever/very well-done (ie. When someone's "Don Draper-ed this shit"), but it's still advertising at its core. I could never consider it art or something that I actually like.
