Whoops, sorry START. I should have mentioned in my first post that the linked thread is fairly “old” (:gasp!: five months), so it was being used as a point of reference. We should continue this discussion here because bumping threads is A Bad Thing now. I didn’t mean to imply that we should all go post to my thread or anything, and I hope it didn’t come off that way.
More from me, because I watch entirely too much television:
OnStar - All of them. There isn’t one OnStar commercial that I like. Not one. In fact, the whole idea of OnStar creeps me out. I once again saw the one I’d mentioned in That Other Thread and it is, indeed, 28 weeks. There’s another one now with some chick who feels “pressure” and “not quite right”, so she thinks she might be in labor. She’s 31 weeks along.
I love Qwest’s “Dex” commercials. “What do you need, Grandpa?” “Coffee.” “I know # coffee shops!” “No, there by your feet.”
This one’s old. They don’t run it anymore and I can’t even recall the company, but there’s a woman sitting at a table, blahblahblahing about something (probably the company… heh), and her face is polarized (digitized? whatever) to mask her identity. At the end, she reaches for the (milk? creamer? something), which reveals her face. WTF? Hate it.
I hate any commercial about a prescription only medication that features a woman running through a field of daisies, a child playing with a small animal, or any such other “happy” thing, then simply mentions the name of the drug and instructs the viewer to see their doctor. To ask if it’s right for me. Yeah, okay, I’ll run right out and pay a $20 copay so I can ask my doctor about something that turns out to be herpes medication or the next Viagra. Or not.
Body by Victoria (“It’s” Back! – btw, what’s up with the quotation marks there?) has a new-ish commerical with… shit. Drawing a blank on the model, but she was in a Disney movie (she played a Barbie come to life opposite Lindsay Lohan) and, I believe, she started the whole “Target = Tar-ZHAY” thing on Oprah. Anyway, it sucks, whatever. I think the quotation marks bother me most, overall. BANKS! Right? What’s her first name?
I think this entire post is evidence that it’s no longer a good idea for me to remain conscious, so I’ll leave it at that for now.
