    There's one I know as it's on a lot that sort of goes, Two women are at a table in a café when one goes to the other, "So, who does your car insurance," And the other just feels the need to break into a song, which most of the people in the café join in...

    If any advertisement involves sex

    or violence, it sells. It's what appeals to a majority of the public honestly.

    The Ones Where You Have To Turn Down The Volume

    Pet peeve number 97... You are watching something on TV, it goes to a commerical, and it is so loud that it wakes the baby up in the next room.  I have to get up from the computer, find the remote and fix it. Wonder if we can sue for hearing loss from this crap?

    Easter Commerical.

    There is this new commercial for a store, it's advertising Easter basket stuffers, and the song makes me want to beat my head against a wall.  Instead of singing, "Do the bunny hop" the woman says it sooo weird and it sounds like, "Do the bunny hump"...

    I Think Most Commercials Are Stupid

    I mean honestly.... I hate loud commercials, repetitve commercials, commercials that think they're funny but aren't, really obviously low-budget commercials, drug commercials that don't tell you what the drug does, etc. Thank god for Tivo and the fast forward button.

    It's that time again.

    I'm already getting incredibly sick of the candidate commercials. I wonder how much of what they state in the commercials is even true & also who's perfect anyway?

    I just saw the most stupid commercial ever. They blindfolded a family of four, took them out of their house and told them they were going to a restaurant.  When really they just took them right back to their own house and fed them pasta dishes from Pizza Hut. Now, I don't...

    I live in a location

    that is close to three states. I've about had it with political ads from elections in all three states! Arrrrrggghh! If you listen to them, all you hear is how horrible the other candidates are. I can't wait for the election to be over and done with!

    but I will admit that I find those Matthew McConaughey Lincoln commercials singularly pointless. I have yet to feel the urge to buy a Lincoln.

    Especially some of the perfume commercials

    where the women are barely clothes and staring seductively st the camera. Why can't you ever be running in a field of flowers and then fall down into them with the sum radiating warmth to you? That a the kind of experience I want to smell like, not overly sexualized women.
