I just throw my cell phone in my cup holder anyway. I wouldn’t turn down the cell phone holder of someone gave it to me.

I also got the floor mats a couple Christmases ago.

The problem today when things go “viral” is because of social media like Twitter, people will make a snarky comment about everyday things to get a few likes, then a shitty “news” site like Yahoo! will take a handful of those tweets, wrote an entire article about it (using the handful of tweets as the majority of the “article”), throw a clickbait headline on it, and it snowballs from there.

This is what I do also, but don’t like glancing down that far ...

So, Otters, hint hint!

I think because of this post I now hate this Dominos commercial, because all I can think about when it airs is "this is exactly what you should be doing and you want a pat on the back for it."

Like imagine a restaurant offering "insurance" and saying if they ruin your food they'll replace it. Yeah, of course you will.

Even worse is that they "surprise" people with the extra pizza, and they act all overjoyed that they got a free crappy Domino's pizza. I'd love to see the true reaction "I only ordered that pizza 'cuz I didn't have enough time to cook that night. And you fucked it up anyway. I just took some steaks off the grill for tonight, but hey, we'll put them in the fridge and eat this free shitty pizza instead."

Anyone mention those Epson commercials with Shaquille O'Neal? I hear them on Spotify. Pretty, pretty, pretty annoying.

I'm pretty fed up with the commercial where the guy is trying to get his smart speaker to do something, but it tells him his internet is down, so he keeps commanding it louder and louder until he blows his stack. Dude, seriously, you cannot be that stupid. If your internet is down your internet is down. Get the fuck over it, get your internet fixed, and stop screaming at your speaker.

You'd probably be surprised.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I don't know that I actually HATE it, but the new AmEx Green Card commercial that is on constant rotation lately always baffles me.

https://ispot.tv/a/oUuS

The gal keeps getting haircuts. And it looks like it's always the same style


Then she gets another one. Looks pretty much the same to me, and it looks like she's suddenly horrified


What's going on there? What are they trying to say about her? WHAT AM I MISSING HERE?????

I get the whole "Internet is down so the smart speaker doesn't work" thing. However, that dude is pretty much me trying to use Spotify with my Google Home Mini:

"Hey Google, play 'Polaar' by Maud Geffray on Spotify."
"Sure, now playing "Polar Express Soundtrack on Spotify."
"What? No! Google stop! Google play the album 'Closer to Grey' by Chromatics on Spotify."
"Sure, now playing the song 'Closer to Grey' by Chromatics on Spotify."
"No! Not the song, the album you fucking moron!"
"Now playing 'Moron' by The Dead Milkmen on Spotify."
"Goddammit, just STOP Google, stop. Play 'Coma Idyllique' by Therapie TAXI."
"Sure, I can call you a taxi. What's your destination?"
[/me picks up a baseball bat and drags it across the floor as he slowly walks towards the Google Mini]

I know I'm nitpicking but that ShipStation commercial irritates the hell out of me. Someone teach His Royal Beardness how to snap his fucking fingers.

The commercial where the little girl finds her dad drinking her Pedialyte. If you ever watch anything on Comedy Central you've likely seen it a million times. The dad is a complete asshole.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Any terrestrial radio listeners who listen to sports radio?

There's the "Hey guys! Good news! The outrageously expensive 'little blue pill' for ED ..." ad plays CONSTANTLY and I can't stand it. I hate the guy's voice, I hate the message, I hate the company name; 'For Hims' (I think, it's been a looong time since I last heard it all the way through, now I turn it off within the first half-second).

Pretty sure next time it comes on I'm just going to drive full-speed into a brick wall in order to end my pain.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Pretty sure this was mentioned, but what the fuck is up with the Cheers homage Domino’s commercial where they have George Wendt going up to checkout counter and awkwardly saying “I’m Norm.” expecting her to know him and then he’s gone in a zap. And all these other customers come up and they know them by name. Which is whatever new thing they were advertising for. It’s the worst thing I’ve seen in a long time and to do that to my all time fav comedy. Travesty! I wonder how much he got paid for that piece of shiite...

Kohler has an ad where a naked guy dances in the shower. I hates it and it's on a lot.
