Everyone knows now that I record the games. I started having to announced if company came over that the game was recorded please don't tell me what happened. If they do and the game is close no big deal. If they tell me it's 47 - 3 I'll just FF to the live part.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I don't hate this one, but it does seem like a questionable use of marketing money.

http://www.ispot.tv/ad/A1G_/kmart-2-for-3-peeps-look-whos-peeping

An ad for Kmart advertising 2 for 3 dollar peeps. The fine print says the regular price is 1.59 each. What a no brainier!

That's probably more of a 'keeping their name out there' ad, not done to generate revenue.

I can't stand the Deal Dash commercials with the middle age woman at the mall. I didn't see it on YouTube, but holy hell, she couldn't act her way out of a wet paper back.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

The worst channel is Freeform (?), what used to be ABC family. The Jungle Book was on TV while we were doing some things around the house and EVERY. SINGLE. COMMERCIAL break had the same set of commercials advertising the same 3 shows on that channel. I wasn't paying much attention to the TV but thought that it was taking a really long time to show that movie. Looked at the guide and they blocked off 2 1/2 hours to show the jungle book. Literally a 1:1 ratio of program to commercials. Ratatouille was being showed over a 2 hour and 45 min block. That is just insane.

Ahh, I was wondering if something was up. I turned on Goonies a month or so back and it seemed like there were a shit ton of commercials. Now I know why.

I can't believe Paul Giamatti sell out to Centurylink and agreed to do this. This makes me want to set their house on fire.

The commercial where a Fiat splashes snow all over a groundhog.

"I am NOT getting any fucking DSL!!!"

I can't find a link to it, but there's one now for the BBB that I can't stand. It has a guy who randomly switches to playing a piano, or being in a bee costume yelling "BBB!"

The University of Pheonix (I think) commercial where a woman sings a bastardized version of "If I only had a brain" in the most godawful indie-folk-hipster-girl voice ever.

Definitely this one! I always wonder why this girl is mad at me. I'm sorry your life is difficult, but what the hell did I do to deserve being the target of your off-key caterwauling? Then it ends with the smugly spoken reproach "...but only if you have a brain."
Yes, you have made a lifetime of poor and/or unfortunate decisions, and you are struggling to improve your situation, but I'm the f'ing bad guy here.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

-The Lincoln commercials with McConaughey (even thought they are hilarious)

-the 5 minute long commercial for Xarelto with Kevin Nealon, Arnold Palmer, and two other guys where they are playing golf

...and the number one MOST hated commercial:
the one that is constantly played on MTV with that shitty Maclemore song with all the lesbos & gays dancing behind the huge x-ray screen

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I'm currently hating the phone commercials where this loser black guy (I'm assuming some rapper?) is pouring champagne on his phone non-stop, apparently completely stupified by the fact that the phone is waterproof. Come on, really? Is there a real point here?

I fucking hate the commercial and everyone involved with it. This is one of the reasons people hate hipsters

There's a sequel commercial with him buying expensive champagne at a liquor store, where he then opens the bottle up and continues to pour more champagne on his phone.

This, this, a thousand times this! Ugh I'm getting all upset even thinking about this commercial! Fuck that chick! I hate her with all my soul.

If someone pulled that shit at a real local convenience store, they would have one bottle broken on his head and the other one shoved up his ass.

Wow, it's rare that an advertisement is that accurate.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I hate this commercial for two reasons :

1) He describes his composite sketches at "bad guy sketches" which they are not. They are simply an approximation witness recollections. Equating them with guilt by recognition is exactly how Steven Avery ended up in jail the first time. Nice presumption of innocence, Mr. Mancusi!

2) Listen carefully to what the Forensic Artist says in the ad. Answer this -- Does he ever give a reason to buy the Surface Pro besides the fact that it works (almost) as well as a pencil and paper? Why not just use a pencil and paper then?
