As a population, we must all adjust our activities and interactions, to give way to self-centered d-bags who cannot move through the world without continuously staring into their cell phones.

Look at Me?? Look up from your damn phone!

1. Hate the new Chevy ad with the bearded guy asking small children what do some of the options and features do. WTF? 2. Been on for years, but I hate the ones showing only the mom and kids, no dad. She's doing everything. Then if there is a dad, he comes across as a complete dufuss jerk.

OK I'm going to say this and I'm going to take some heat for it but here goes:

There sure seems to be a lot of mixed-races couples in ads these days.
Not that there is anything wrong with that but it's just an observation on my part.

I agree with Paul, like companies are trying to hard to please everyone.

I agree. Blacks comprise about 14 % of the population. If you look at tv ads, plus radio and tv voiceover's, they account for about 75% of these two media's. It's to me, a bit overblown and for what?

Yes - that's my favorite also. I guess you are supposed to know ahead of taking the drug that you will be allergic to it. It has to be reverse psychology - mentioning all the side effects causes you to remember the commercial better than not mentioning them.

There must be some law or regulation that requires them to mention side-effects on TV otherwise they would not pay for that air-time.
We presume that it provides some protection against if someone taking the drug experiences a side effect but e.g. their doctor didn't mention it.
The drug company's position would then be - "Five years ago in a TV ad we mentioned the side effect you are experiencing - therefore you were adequately warned and we are not paying damages for any pain/suffering/etc." Is that how that would go?

Current most annoying commercial: The NURX birth control ad with the Wicked Witch of the East blow drying her hair then riding the stationary bike then glad to get her birth control by mail. Other than the side effects for her general health, some dude is having sex with that ugly chick and like the Peloton ad he needs to be outed!

Any Buick ad for the last 8 years. They still use that awful music.

I was going to post just that about the mixed race couples - similarly the gay/lesbian couples as well.

And our dog starts barking when the TV commercial uses the doorbell sound!

Screamer commercials: Billy Mays is king of these. Local auto dealerships also suck.
On a humorous note: "I hate Frumpies Potato Chips" (Bonus points if anyone knows where the are mentioned)

Any of his ads...especially the Lincoln ads. Does anybody think he really made that Masse' shot in the ad touting the car's electronic nannies?

Some other loud mouth showed up after him but didn't do as well.

In the meantime, anyone know where Frumpies Chips come from? (Hint think 70's)

Lincoln must pay him well. Does anybody think he really writes his own ads?
