My pet peeve TV commercials are the Lipozene one (where the lady says "...researchers have discovered a capsule...". Why are the researchers unwilling to take credit for creating the capsule? What were they doing when they discovered this capsule and where was it, in the rainforest? Was it hanging from a tree, or maybe it grew in a cave?), and the Sleep Number Bed one with the two blond yippie customers, male and female who are obviously genetically made for one another, lying on a mattress. The female one says, "When I got up in the morning my back used to hurt so bad...", extending the word "bad" unnecessarily, you know? It's hard to describe what I mean. Then the TV spokesman says something, then the male yippie says, "Wake up in the morning with no back pain...", doing the same thing at the end of his sentence that I must assume all yippies must do, or maybe it's from bad company. I can't watch these commercials. I'm too busy watching my blood pressure.
CRAZY EDDIE! His prices are INSANE!
Maybe they should mix things up a little. How about the car dealers doing the side effects on drug ads or maybe have the funeral guys do car ads.
I'm all skeeved out by the Geico ads with the pig.
They're just wrong, not cute. Ew.
There is one for Little Caesars at the moment where the moon yells "Pizza Time!!" That freaks me out. It's not funny and if anything it would keep me far away from Little Caesars. I also agree about local ads starring children. There is a local tire store commercial that airs here, and the guy uses his grandchildren.
Geico had a great one on around Halloween last year about a witch who works in a broom factory. I loved that one! I also love any of the M&M commercials, especially any starring Ms. Brown. Ms. Brown is awesome.
The new Subaru one,where the little girl is holding her dad's hand at the bus stop,not real thrilled about her first day at school,and as the bus arrives she gets on and glances back,heartbreakingly..it ends well,with her laughing with another child on the bus as dad drives by in his "safe", i guess, subaru..but man it just took me back to the Newtown thing,and thinking about all the parents who entrust their kids to the uncertainty of the school bus every day..and it just made me sad as heck for those parents,wonder if it is hard for them to see that commercial..
