Ever watch a commercial and find it funny for the first few times? But while your watching an interesting movie, the commercials roll 3 minutes after they had just cut from them? I've seen more and more of this crap. Ah, and the commercial itself. It's always some god damn snickers commercial where the pilgram and viking are throwing crap around. If it's not going to make me buy a snickers the first 6000 times it has run in one day, it's not going to make me the next 20,000 times.

The car commercials. Come one, seriously, a guy dancing and them dumping water onto him? WTF does a man dancing around have anything to do with a goddamn KIA?

There must be others out there who share the same feelings! I mean, IT'S A CHOCOLATE BAR AND A CAR! WE DON'T NEED TO BE BRAINWASHED EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T.V. sells out too much.. Look at Mtv.. I have yet to see a decent music station in the last 5 years. Reality T.V., Stupid game shows, is this what we've become? I hate it!

That's just TV in general. Even when it isn't commercial time, TV shows and movies are still cramming product placements down our throats.

But if you really hate them that much, there is always Tivo.

I have noticed that the commercials on TV these days don't make much sense. But whatever misgivings one might have for them, it's just not possible to run a station profitably without them. Alas, they're a necessary evil.

Now, if the ads were like this, I'd be really pissed off:

Yeah I know it's nesessary. But c'mon, what's the point in some dude rolling down a hill, falling hundreds of feet, while making out with a woman just to tell you that a deodernat body wash is good? Thousands of dollars spent to make someone smile and say, that should increase my sex appeal, maybe I should invest in this product. I hate television. Seldomly will I actually watch it. Even the news has become ridiculous, try watching Anderson Cooper without showing your fingers down your throat just to ease the nauseating feeling you get from his stupidity.

I'm not saying all television is like this, for the most part, it is.

Tivo? I'm too cheap to buy it. Never really did watch tv to the point where I would want to rewind it and all that junk.

Got Milk? Get me a whopper! Dirty Mouth? Clean it up!

Whatever... This is a rant forum, i'm just venting!

"Head on apply directly to the forhead"

I know what you mean slash.....I know what you mean.

They paid close to nothing in that commercial, and yet, it makes you want to apply the nearest obstacle to your forhead.. :bnghd: yup!
