His horrible, obviously-dubbed voice grates me very time.

None of the insurance commercials would make me switch--Geico, State Farm, etc. I don't know how an Emu or a bunch of people in white aprons would make me buy insurance. I don't see a relevant correlation.

It may not get you to switch immediately but it really increases their name recognition so next time you think about switching, you think of them or their jingle. I mean it behooves you anyway to shop around for insurance.

My brain works the opposite. I assume all the companies I see commercials for all the time are the worst. Otherwise, they wouldn't need constant, annoying jingles on TV to get customers.

That kind of severely limits what companies you use though, doesn't it? Unless you just go to mom and pops or something.

Screw milk and beef and pork, must be something wrong with them if they're advertising now!

lol...I meant just in regards to insurance. We get all our insurance through discount plans at work for close to 20 years now. Haven't had to think about switching. And before that, MA was very limited with who you could use. All the companies I'd see on TV were never available in the state.

I once got a quote from Geico & guess what? They wanted me to help pay for their 6 billion a year advertising budget. Go figure, the company that buys ads on every channel all day every day is not the cheapest option.

I always think Adult Swim is an odd channel/time to be playing senior citizen ads.
Jimmy JJ Walker is baaaaaaaaack

The 2023 version is more tamer, no more *DYN*O*MITE*

Any commercials for The Daily Show. I can only imagine they're trying to be as obnoxious as possible.
