Favorite and not so favorite commercials? - Page 2

post #31 of 52
My favorite commercial is the Fed Ex commercial with the office meeting that starts with the boss saying "we have got to cut costs people, ideas"..........and the one guy gives his idea and is ignored, and the boss says the same thing etc...something about that commercial cracks me up...

I love the commercial where the guy says in a hotel room...."ive been hereeeeeeeee beforeeeeeeeeeeee."...and his wife says "yeah,. we saw this on Hotels.com online"..lol..kills me


I hate ANY commercial where they try to make kids look too cute or say something they would never say...like talking like they are science students in college, at 7 years old while the "stupid" adults are amazed..yeah right...

or where the parents are having an argument about cell phone contracts and the kid says to his sister...."he is SOOO busted"....that one about makes me

like the first person in this thread, i cant stand any commercial by Peyton Manning, but especially the one where he is "cheering" for cooks, or accountants, and all this other lamo stuff..he comes across like he is mocking them....the guy is a grade A doofus.....

Well, there are SO many different talking animals in TV ads these days with talking geckos at the top but I cast my vote for gargling dogs.
post #33 of 52
Uh...gargling dogs? I'm afraid I haven't had the pleasure...


Gosh I can't seem to remember too many of my favs/hates. But there is the Vonage one (I can't stand the song either, ugh) but its the pretty blonde in the bathing suit who wants to go 'swim with the dolphins'...AAAAhhhhhh she's just sooo cute! I love it when she gets hit in the head with the book! Anyway, I know that's mean...but its sooo funny!

One that I just can't stand and they play it waaaay too often around here is the NutriSystem one...the gal who's ''in a size 2''...and she's ''a chocoholic''...and she feels ''soooooo sAxy'' (whatever happened to pronouncing the letter ''e'' in many words y'all?) I just have to mimic her every single time and my hubby gets such a kick out of it...'why do you hate that woman so?'

my favorite commercials right now - the geico ones "so easy a caveman can do it". they seem to be a love em or hate em kind of thing, but I love em the one where he's talking to some cnn-esque reporter, and the female commentator says (in response to something the caveman says) "sounds like someone got up on the wrong side of the rock" , or the one where he's talking to his psychiatrist (a great nod to the Sopranos), an older female, who says so easy a therapist could do it "wouldn't make sense to me", and then the caveman says "why?" and she goes "cos therapists are.." and he cuts in - "cos therapists are what? smart??" and she looks all uncomfortable. Don't know what it is, but I just love those

Favorites:
The Tidy Cat one with the party " Hey, where did everyone go"?

I'm probably gonna get yelled at- but I think the Geico caveman commercials are too funny. Esp the new one where the caveman's talking to his psychiatrist.

The Capitol One commercials with the Vikings. I loved the one at Christmas where they're putting the tree in the back of the van and it goes right through the front of it.

Dislikes:
The stupid V-Tech commercial where the parents say "Stop doing your chores and play your video games" (this one's on Nickelodeon a lot). Like I'm gonna tell my kids that playing a stupid video game's gonna make them smarter.

Oh and I hate the happy period ones too. I have endometriosis- and trust me, many times having a period is NOT a happy experience, esp when I'm taking 500mg Motrin at a time and it is doing NOTHING for the pain radiating from my front to back.

I love Budweiser commercials and any with animals like the California cheese cows! And the Aflac duck has to be one of my all time favorites!

I don't like any drug commercials because I think they are inappropriate. People should not be pressuring their doctors to perscribe something they saw on TV. And how much $$$ are the drug companies spending on advertising, when the savings by not advertising could reduce prescription costs?

I really don't like the Boniva commercials with Sally Field - especially the one where her friend was telling her she had set aside time to take a pill once a week. OMG, what a bother! Geeze, I take 4 pills a day, and I'm not complaining!

And I really hate the Geico commercials - especially the cave man ones. I wouldn't buy their insurance even if I had no choice! Again, how cheap can their insurance bee if they are spending all this $$$ on expensive TV advertising?

"If you have an erection lasting more than 4 hours, seek medical attention."

I hate this commercial sooooooooo much.

"When the time is right....will you be ready?"

I just wanna whenever it comes on.

I HATE that commercial! That song drives me mad.

For commercials I like.. there was one a year ago with a girl sitting on a floor holding a blow dryer and she was hissing.. don't remember what product it was for. And the old Raisin Bran one from twenty years ago is fun. "Sturdy Danny McGee was up his fifty-ninth tree, he said 'I work as fast as I can,' when he suddenly saw two scoops of raisins in a package of Kellogg's Raisin Bran! Well he rushed to the ground, 'cause ol' Danny had found what's important to a raisin fan, 'cause Kellogg's puts TWO SCOOPS OF RAISINS over those nutritious flakes of Bran! When he got to the truck Danny sure was in luck he was one happy man cause only Kelloggs puts two scoops of raisins in a package of Kellogg's Raisin Bran!"

I love the Roaming Gnome, The Geico commercials (I love mini me "its my birthday..."!) Also the Geico with the cavemen - also agree about the Tidy Cat - loved the Persian with the lampshade on his head!

Don't like the VW crash commercials either. Actually there aren't alot of commercials that I like - most of them insult my intelligence. And quite frankly, I havenever claimed to be the brightest bulb in the box!

Great commercial!

I love the Geico Caveman commercials too. I couldn't get the music out of my head and wasn't happy until I googled and found out it was Royksopp and downloaded an album from iTunes. Norwegian techno dance music, go figure.

Love the Geico commercial music. When I hear it in the morning, I just can't get it out of my head all day long. Royksopp is the best.

That one has been irking me as well.

Love: the Tide-To-Go commercial with the drill sargeant, almost all the Geico commercials, the Silk soymilk commercials, the cell phone commercials with the kid and the mom "fighting" but saying nice things to each other (ex. "You never hated me and you never will!")

Hate: the Dunkin' Donuts commercial about ordering lattes in "English, not Fritalian" (ummm, "latte" is an Italian word to begin with and there is no English word for "espresso with steamed milk and a bit of foamed milk"), any commercials for prescription drugs, the Purina Dog Chow commercial that says it "can add up to two healthy years to your dog's life" (over what? not feeding the dog at all? in that case, yeah, I agree.)

Another good one. That's a good excuse for avoiding someone. "No, sorry, Mr. Creepy Dork. I can't go out with you on Friday, I have to take my Boniva that evening."

Oh yes, I hate her too. Just wanna smack that woman.

My favorite alltime commercial is the cat herders. When the one cowboy says, "I'm living a dream," I just crack up.

I really like the one for Fresh Step? I think...Where the cat needs the Bloddhound to help sniff out the box... Its almost like NOT having one lol.

There are alotta commercials i dont like. Like the VW ones with Brooke Sheilds. The ones where she says women all over are getting pregnant just to get the car, and the women are saying theyve planned their pregnancies for a while.. UGH.

I can't remember which cell phone it is, but the commercials that start out with "beep...this is Ted's phone. Ned doesn't have (AT&T, I think) so he didn't get that call about don't mention the word "merger" Ned.."etc. The whole series is hilarious! Also, there is one vaccuum commercial where the family has a white dog, he runs under the couch and comes out a second later and is coal black. That is too cute.

I normally ignore commercials I hate, but some local commercials are too loud to ignore. The one I abosolutly hate is:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6CslpftOe4

It's for a auto dealership, and I didn't even realize until I looked it up that those are the Baltimore Ravens in the add. They haven't changed the jingle in 5 years and one station plays it almost every commercial break...sometimes twice back to back. Yeah, it's catchy...the first 20 times. After that it makes me want to pull my hair out. Plus the song gets stuck in my head for the rest of the day!

Without a doubt, its the Dell Christmas commercial where a guy is working at his desk and his co-workers come around him, singing Deck the Halls and then he jumps up, in a really high pitched voice and sings Fa La La La La La La and his co workers look at each other and walk away.

I love the Enzyte commercials. You know, the ones where 'Smiling Bob' gets the big boost of confidence. It amazes me how many different ways they find to describe the so-called results without actually sayihg anything.

I absolutely hate the commercial that has that dumb song 'the world is full of beautiful things.' I don't even know the company ( I think it's some department store ). I don't pay attention cause the commercial bugs me!
I also hate the Brooke Shields VW commercials; they're downright dumb.
