I Think Some Commercials Are So Stupid

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 395 People

    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.

    Typically I don't pay much mind,

    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.

    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"...

    Miller Lite And Dr. Pepper 10

    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?

    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?

    If any advertisement involves sex

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