One of those new Coke commercials. The only way I can describe it is a bunch of hip young teensters on a rooftop in a city having an impromptu jam session about Coke. What the Hell; do these guys really like coke THAT much!? Then they raise their glasses to the sky at the end. Did it cure your cancer or something? What the Hell is going on here!? It's a freakin drink! What happened to the old commercials where it was like:

Person A: "Man, I'm thirsty but all I have is this stupid Pepsi"
Person B: "Oh, well here's a coke!"
Person A: "Thanks! This is much better!"

*For fat people, use diet Coke!*

Commercials piss me off...

Then there's that new Burger King commercial with those new Chicken Fries. Apparently, these Chicken Fries are just so hardcore that they were able to inspire a Heavy Metal/punk (Almost sounding early Misfits/danzig-ish) band who belts out lyrics about these extreme fries. Like anybody who moshes, dies their hair, or has a rebel spirit inside of them should be buying these fries. Then at the end, he screams out "One Nation Under Chicken Friiiieeesss!!!", as if we need MORE fast food in our diet... Does this piss anybody else off?

The third and last at the moment (Ok, not really 100) is the type of commercial where they try to use clever/witty/awkward situations involving "average everyday people" doing "average everyday things". A good example is that (Carls Junior?) commercials, where there are three people sitting at a table. The first guy says something to the effect of "Mmm, this is a good burger... It's scrunchy". The girl then says "Scruncy?" He explains that he's mixed together 3 words (I can't remember which ones) to create this new and hilarious word. The other two try their shots at new words involving the three he used, and hilarity inevitably ensues.

There's something about these commercials that just pisses me off. Some of the people reading this might think "Is there any way the marketing people coming up with these commercials can win with you?" ...Probably not, but quit attempting to exploit every aspect of our society by using it in your stupid commercials!

Nothing on TV annoys me more than that Chicken Fries commercial. By the way, it's no longer "One nation under chicken fries" because someone must have complained that it was blasphemous to substitute "God" for "Chicken Fry" as if they were equal
Now it's "kingdom".

The musclur dude singing with a Chicken Mask is Beyond Bizarre!

BK has been freaking people out for the past year with Beyond Bizarre commericials starring has-beens Hootie and the Blowfish and Brooke Burke.

Anyways, if they are a REAL band, they have hit the height of pathicism! Refer to my Thread about Rock N' Roll Sell-out and the Coca-Cola Commericial.

I think the BK ads are brilliant. The Chicken Fried Freaks are lame, but I love the Office series: I am the Thing. and What time is it?

Plus the Where's your God now? super creepy giant Burger King head man.


Oh, man...

Well I guess the lyrics "BOB YOUR HEAD!" is better than ROQ YOUR COQ. *shivers*

But you know a reall bad commercial The Duece Bigolo previews. Its not funny. An even worse commercial are those truth commercials. Theyre so abstract you cant tell what they mean. Like there was one were they had an egg they said this is your brain then they had a fried egg and they said this is your brain on crack. And Im like So doing crack does make your brain delicious. . . interesting

And another commercial that is ruining america is the Geico commercials. Ehich look like a different commercial until the end

I remember that BK with the chicken guys. It was one of those commercials that you prayed would end but kept going on, you scramble for the TV remote. It's something you feel embarrassed watching it.

CAPTAIN MORGAN COMMERICIAL!!

Another STUPID Commercial, Captain Morgan




"They All have a little Captain in them" The commercial where people are lifting their left leg, like Captain Morgan has his Leg on resting on the barrel of rum.

I HATE HATE HATE HATE That Commercial!

That's a good one too!


Your best friends mother has a little Captain in her...

Man, they must be making commercials for ME now. Yay, I'm the target group! I pwn you fools! TV is for me, me, me! Bwahahaha.



It's good to be old.

What pissed me off was how they tried to put in commericals for a furniture store during the superbowl. Now that just annoyed me to no end.

That and how Gillette can try and make shaving look so exciting. Honestly the way they talk about their razors, you'd expect shaving with one of those is better than sex.

But seriously commercials that are ruining us are the new McDonalds commercials. Do I really want to see a bunch of commercial rappers rapping about who knows what while eating crap from McDonalds? No I want them to just shut up and let me kill my heart by my own free will instead of rotting my mind while they're at it.

The commercial itself doesnt piss me off, the fact that the Chicken Fries taste so god damn nasty is what does. Burger Kings other commercial for the Chicken Fries involves a crime fighting (if i remember) team of 4 black guys. So of course, a commercial about something involving chicken has to perpetuate the black stereotype.

What commericial should make me sad (I guess) but doesn't Is that damn American Heart Association Commericial. A woman is putting together holiday greeting cards. "I was going to put this photo with this card and put a photo of our dead son, and put what is on his gravemarker.."

Talk about a Debbie Downer!

She says it's going to the parents/grandparent's, they already know he is deceased.

That commericial could have so much more impact, if it was done differently.

Thought I'd bring up one I heard when I was accidentally listening to the radio (My radio was being weird and it swiched to a crappy FM station..). The kid in the commercial actually told someone to buy it cause it was, and I quote "Hip-trendy". It pissed me off. There.

I'd say any EHarmony commercial is probably the most God awful.



This guy is demented!!!

Oh Good lord, do I hate the Eharmony Commericials and that dorky old monotone guy that is plugging it.

That stupid ING Direct commerial with that British guy with the orange backgrounds. Everytime I see him it annoys the crap out of me.

I am sick of the Duece Bigolo preview.

The commercial that really burned me up was the one that begins with a noise that sounds just like the national emergency alert system, and then tries to sell you their product. I forget what they were selling.

Grrrrrrr
