Again with the annoying commercials!

Something weird is going on in my neck of the woods. The local channels from the Not Really A Very Big City close by are having some kind of advertising War.

The factions are rug cleaning, garage doors, windows and patio doors and stone/tile.

There are TWO companies running ads for rug cleaning and the damn time. Really? Who even knew this was a thing? And there are TWO companies? The same with the garage door people. Two companies, all day long. How often to you really need to replace a garage door?

Here is where it gets weird: THREE Stone and Tile companies are going at it, hard and FOUR replacement window/patio door places are battling it out. I can’t imagine enough people wanting to replace all the doors and window in their homes to keep two businesses open.

I guess that’s why they all try to out-do each other with the excessive advertising. It’s really annoying.

One of the Stone and Tile places have this real nicely produced ad showcasing all the beautiful stuff they have to offer, their fleet of nice trucks, all the neat and tidy employees. Then, the closing shot is of the exterior of one of the locations with a HUGE Logo on the side of the building… and several broken pallets, piles of junk and general disarray. What the fuck were they thinking???

Yeah, since when is kinda creepy worthy of a death sentence?

Let’s turn it around- some dude has uncontrollable lightning bolts coming out, so he Amazons some rubber gloves. Goes to a bar with the Bros. A woman winks at him, so he takes of the gloves and kills her.


New ad which bothers the fuck out of me. Guy gets a sprayer of deadly herbicide, then runs around like several guys, spraying deadly Agent Orange shit everywhere, even on one small poor dandelion.

That stuff needs to be banned. No homeowner needs that shit.

Scott Summers: The Early Years

There’s an anti-perspirant commercial out that features an old lady’s stringy underarm. Ain’t nobody needs that.

Sure, goofy self-mockery can work, but here, especially old buddy at the pinball machine - UGH, yikes.

Hey, lady in the Hippo Insurance commercial, that ain’t the sound of rocks (or hailstones) hitting your house – it’s the sound of whatever objects happen to be in my reach hitting the TV when your stupid commercial starts playing for the third fucking time in a row.






Shut up! :mute:

I want this now, though.

Oh My God! There is a new commercial for some shingles medication where they show corkscrews burrowing out of scaley skin! Creeps me right out and it is really disturbing while I’m eating breakfast. Gah!

Oh, and the younger girl freaks out (hands waving) because her phone needs to be charged. She thought of that AFTER she got to the school?

And there is no way the mother should have seen the lizard in the back-up camera. That doesn’t turn on until you’ve have it in reverse (unless she drives with it turned on).

There is a S’mores commercial that tries to lay earworms with Eddie Cochran’s “C’mon Everybody”. Not to be insensitive, but are they being inclusive with the little girl? I mean, is she differently abled in some way?

Every time I see it, which is often, I think “there’s that dopey looking little girl”. I know it’s a terrible thing to think but that stupid look on her face and the way she shambles out the back door is really distracting.

Well, insurance does last forever. Assuming that you pay the annual premium. Forget to pay it, and you’ll find that insurance doesn’t last forever.

For me, it’s the Alexa/Buick commercial where Mom (taking the kids to school?) says from inside the house, “Alexa, start the Buick.” The Buick starts, while Mom and kids are getting ready to leave the house–gathering coats, backpacks, etc.

Here’s the thing: it’s a beautiful spring day in the commercial. There is no need to start the car before you get in it; the weather is warm enough that the car does not need a warmup. I’ll use my remote starter when the weather is -20C (-4F), but I won’t use it when the temperature is above freezing (0C/32F). Why is Mom remotely starting the car when it’s not cold out?

(I’m sure that it’s to show off the capabilities of Alexa, but if they wanted to do that, why did they not set the commercial in the winter?)

This one?

I’m with you, girl.

Yes, that one. Why the hell would you start your car before you’ve even left the house if it’s over 0C/32F? And it’s warm enough that the kids don’t need coats, as the commercial indicates?

Like I implied, film it in winter, when a remote start is handy, and necessary.

Why is the USPS spending so much money on totally useless commercials? Their rates are going up, and we’re forced to subsidize this crap.

When I had a remote starter, I used it in the summer so the AC cooled off the car before I got in ( I might have had to go to the car to turn on the AC , but I don’t think so )

I use the remote started in case someone planted a bomb.

What? Doesn’t everybody?

Plus for the air conditioning. After all, this is Arizona.

In a nice reversal, it seems that Numi’s latest commercials no longer refer to women’s nether regions as “stinky crevices.”
