Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Currently hating the AT&T "get rid of fees" commercial with Jack and the beanstalk. Can someone tell me what is the purpose of overdubbing an obviously different actor's voice over the punchline about getting rid of fees, and then letting a third person entirely take over for the rest of the ad? It just makes no sense. Let Jack finish the joke during the shot of him lounging on the beanstalk, THEN cut to the announcer who finishes the ad.

Panera. Affected-to-the-nth-degree millennial kunt who speaks adorably of "clean food", "sandwiches and/or soups", and other horseshit. I'm not exposed to commercials, but I'm forced to listen to them on Spotify. I would avoid that Panera place based solely on those cancer-causing ads alone. Good job, guys.

The new Crown Royal Vanilla commercial can go suck a butthole.

Every single Farmer's Only commercial. All of them can go fuck a goat.

I don't hate them, but the esurance commercials with Dennis Quaid kinda disappoint me. Obviously he can't be a leading man forever (and looks good for 64 and a bad drug habit when he was younger), but it's still a bummer to see.

He'll always be Bowen to me. "Dragonheart" was so much fun.

"You should have eaten her!" - priceless

Yeah, there's an actor called Taylor Nichols who - I think - has been in all but one of Whit Stillman's film: Metropolitan, Barcelona, The Last Days of Disco and Damsels in Distress. I saw him in a Time Warner Cable commercial a few years back and it made me sad. I know actors have to pay the bills and all... but I was like "c'mon, Taylor... you're better than that!"

The wanna-be inspirational Mazda 6 ads with M83s Outro playing. Super corny and cringe-worthy, made worse since the 2012 GoPro ads it's ripping off did it way better.

I didn't think I could hate anyone in the Progressive commercials more than Flo, but Jamie has taken the lead. Just shoot him.

The Rakuten commercial where people win money for pronouncing the name correctly.

guess what, maybe they should have kept the Buy.com name instead of something unpronounceable let alone easy to type into a browser or app.

Apologies for not reading the whole thread, but has anyone mentioned the Matthew McConaughey Lincoln commercials. They are so pretentious and annoying.


And an SNL parody of them

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I've been listening to season 3 of the Serial podcast. They have a commercial for Ziprecruiter that is made specifically to sound like it's part of the actual podcast. A woman is speaking, doing her best impression of the podcast host (Sarah Koenig)--mimicking the rhythm and intonation of her speech, even her 'vocal fry.' She's also imitating Koenig's style of posing questions to herself. The music playing in the commercial is also made specifically to sound similar to the familiar and distinctive Serial theme music. Anyway, it doesn't appear to be done ironically. There's no acknowledgment of what they're doing, no winking at the audience. But it's incredibly obvious that they're hoping you won't realize you're listening to an ad and not the actual show until you're halfway through the ad.

I think it's been mentioned before because I remember saying it's so weird that he has these commercials and at the same time, in the West Coast at least, he's the voice of the Carls Jr. commercials.

The Kit Kat commercial with the rap played backwards is driving me insane.

I would refuse to do business with them based on that commercial. I would refuse to do business with any marketing outfit that thought that was good idea.

So they're trying to be the next "Wassup?" ???

As usual, there's no creativity in advertising, these days.
