I don't know if they are local or national, but the new Sonic Drive-In commercials make me want to deliberately avoid Sonic and actively campaign against them. It's a bunch of inane yokels having idiotic conversations.

The dopey guys were at least tolerable. These new ones seem unscripted.

I don't watch much network TV with commercials, but I was watching ABC Wednesday night, and I could not believe all the virus-related ads they already rolled out.

And both Pizza Hut and Dominoes REALLY want to get the word out that you can get a pizza delivered without even having to open the door for the delivery driver.

I guess I wouldn't mind a small amount of them if they were sincere, but all come across as completely insincere and fake,

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

^ I can’t get whatever that is to play.


Anyway I loathe the new commercial for something called Microsoft meat or something.
Looks like it’s their version of Zoom.

Starts with an electronic alarm sound of some sort then a guy who sounds like a robot comes on screen and starts babbling about who knows what then more pop up in their own little box.

It's gotta be either Microsoft Teams or Google Meet, although Microsoft Meat sounds like it would be a terrible commercial.

Iím not knocking any cultureís language but the particular accents they have in this commercial seem so stilted and stuttery that it makes the video conferencing service theyíre using look like itís got poor audio quality, like the video/audio is glitchy. Not the most effective commercial to represent the quality of their service.

MS Teams - Thanks for advertising that your stream quality is dog shit
Geiko "Clogging"
Literally any commercial advertising Jardiance (sp?) medication

Unfortunately that tap dancing commercial Is much too real.

I know several people who deal with that type of nonsense every day including my brother who has been fighting it with the leaders of his condo group.

I think it's Geico's new ad. It's constantly playing on Hulu. A woman from the HOA board just goes around being a complete and total asshole to a couple. Cutting down planters, violation, chainsawing their mailbox, violation.

The problem is it's realistic. HOAs are a breeding ground for would-be dictators who will eventually run for office that get their rocks off on a total power trip.

Yes, it's an absolutely hateable commercial.

Only redeeming quality is the dude pushing a stroller saying "I see you met Cynthia" with a grin.
