Finally watched this commercial. I still can't tell if this is supposed to be serious or ironic.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ms._Monopoly

This is a variation of the game Monopoly, so only differences from standard gameplay will be listed. Female players get $1,900 at the start of the game, and male players get $1,500. When passing "Go", female players get $240, while male players only get the standard $200 as in the normal game.[1][2] In addition, the game differs from regular Monopoly in that properties are replaced by inventions women created or contributed to, including Wi-Fi, to which Hedy Lamarr and Radia Perlman contributed;[3] modern shapewear by Spanx founder Sara Blakely;[4][5] and chocolate chip cookies, invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield.[6] Tokens have been replaced with new ones: a notebook and pen, a jet, a glass, a watch, a barbell, and Ms. Monopoly's white hat.[7] Chance and Community Chest cards also provide different payouts for men and women. Sometimes the payout is higher for women and sometimes for men.[8] Jail and luxury taxes are maintained from the regular game.[1]
If it's a joke, I don't get why it's funny. I understand the gender wage gap, I just don't understand the point in this. If this were just regular monopoly but with the inventions, I think it would be ok, but the increased payout due to gender?

I don't know if it's hateable as much as it is exceedingly realistic to close to the way HOA Nazi's really are. I would never live where there is a HOA in California they are evil. As bad or worse as reality

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Ask your doctor about (any new drug). I'm sick of the pharmaceutical industry constantly peddling new shit to the sheeple. And have you listened to the list of side effects inevitable in them all? Christ on a crutch, the side effects are most often worse than the ailment they're trying to relieve. Notice I said relieve, not cure. The ailment might be unpleasant but the side effects of the drug might KILL YOU. I hate those fucking drug commercials! Always a bunch of smiling, laughing people having such a good time with life, all because of this new drug. Bullshit...

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

The Capilis laser cap commercial gets on my nerves because of that one hideous woman with awful sunwithered skin. Normally I would not attack someone on their looks but it really doesn't help to have a commercial actress who looks like a monster, and judging by her hair she doesn't even need the damn thing.

My apologies if this one was already posted. Checking You Tube it’s apparently a year old. Just saw it for the first time when my wife was watching Bravo (which she does all the time but usually I am in another room). Truly horrifying ad.

"Safe drivers save 40 percent! That's him! That's totally 'safe drivers save 40 percent'!" Is this supposed to be funny?

Dennis Haysbert must be thinking, "I know I can get that second beach house now, but is it worth doing this shit?"

If only they had gotten him that live chicken instead of the bucket of KFC, he wouldn’t have to be doing those commercials now.

Idina should play Kimberly Guilfoyle on SNL.

I liked this one the first time I saw it. Sorry!

I hate the ones where they get random people (maybe they're internet celebrities or something) tasting sandwiches and talking about it. Burger King has one and Popeyes has one.

I absolutely can't stand the Goli apple cider vinegar gummie commercial just for that asshole who declines an offer of cake and then celebrates like he resisted some great temptation.

The redhead is cute, though.

I was going to mention this ad too. Glad I'm not the only one who hates it. I plug my ears as soon as she starts singing.
