This advertisment is ALWAYS ON! It was on every commercial break (several times twice in one break) during the Emmy's last night. This morning it was on in a similar manner during the TODAY show.
What is up? The ad says "Coming in October" while The Beatles' "Paperback Writer" plays in the background. It makes no sense and is borderline harrassment with the frequency it is being aired.
I mean come on - it is a BUICK.

The other makes-no-sense on-all-the-time ad is the one for Blockbuster with Rebel Yell and Paulie Walnuts. First off, it makes zero sense and secondly, even within the context of what they're trying to do it is incompetenly directed and edited. Just so friggin horrible. I should get Tivo just to stop having to see that stinking commercial.

My favorite current ad is C2 with the choppy "I Want to Break Free" edit. Because drinking C2 will set me free to gather in the streets with a bunch of people and cheer. I wonder how much they spent setting up that shot.

I hate the Heineken "I love you" spot set to Chris Isaak's Wicked Game.
