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 itís 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 wouldnít 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'd take this over the Sonic commercials.

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.

The one with Snoop answering the shell phone on the beach might be the worst commercial I have ever seen.

I've probably mentioned this before, but now that all the terrible political ads are over (thank god), we get the Christmas "Everyone gets a new car" ads.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Maybe "hate" is too strong of a word, but that Macy's commercial in which the girl tries to figure out what to buy her dad for Christmas is just not realistic. He doesn't want socks; today's dad wants the same thing you want, kid - a new game console!

On the other hand, he's just going to get it this week if he can. But there's always a new game - perhaps Cyberpunk if it doesn't get delayed again. Although he'll probably get that on release date too.

I saw for the first time this season the one where the guy buys two pickups, probably $150k worth of cars and gives one to his wife and then like a jerk letís her take his.

Saw that one last night with my kids and pointed it out. Why do car companies think this is enough of a thing to make it their ode to Christmas?

Oh I hate that one. And to top it off, look at the house they live in. It's like they purposely set out to make a commercial that only the 1% can relate to yet I see it all the time. I really don't understand why they think that's a good marketing tactic.

I also hate that Lincoln one with Matthew McConaughey doing a voice over that starts with "Knowing who we are is hard. It's hard!" So pretentious. (Of course, a ton of car commercials are like that for some reason.)

He's already a jerk for owning a pickup...

On that annoying "one for you..one for me" GMC commercial, do they replace the vehicles every year with the new models or are they showing old ones? I know that commercial is at least 3 years old. I suppose they could CGI the new model year car in, but that sounds expensive.

I feel like the majority of car commercials are for cars that most people will never buy, at least not new, and definitely not two of them.

Even for people that could afford them, I'd say if you bought a car for your wife, drove it off the lot and didn't consult her first, there would be hell to pay unless the amount is just a drop in the bucket for your finances. "You bought a freaking car without me? I need to see your private bank account now!"

Of course I'm also not spending thousands of dollars for jewelry for Mother's Day so maybe I'm just a lot poorer than most people.

Not a fan of most of those Baker Mayfield Progressive at home Commercials.
But maybe most like them because they keep making more.
