I don't know if it's an ad campaign, but why is "Pittsburgh Dad" a thing?

The kid voice is tolerable but the adult on this commercial is a total goober.

Jeremy's parents who keep getting Jeremy's high cell phone bills while he's out of the country make me wish Jeremy was an orphan

Of course they had to say he's a Pens fan. Clearly, he behaves like a Caps fan, though.

This one’s a little “inside baseball,” but I detest the ads Reed Smith (the biggest law firm in Pittsburgh) is running in the Penguins’ game programs. It’s supposed to look like a contract under which Reed Smith is agreeing to be a fan of the team. But the text has been designed to look like something spat out of a typewriter in the 1950s: it uses a monospaced typeface, underlined text, and excessive indents. It’s a parody of what a contract should look like. As someone who keeps a copy of Typography for Lawyers within arm’s reach, I find it an absolute affront.

Bad: Sweetjack.com Annoying song.

On the opposite end, one that is good: Queeno.

Tailgater with a lone hard patty of quinoa. Others laugh while he takes one for the team and grills his Queeno in hopes of bringing good karma to his team and to a victory.

It's not bad enough that WeBuyAnyCar.com (ANY ANY ANY!! ANY!!!!) had a radio ad, but now they've moved on to a tv commercial with more lines to their awful jingle.

Full Halloween gear, father declares he needs candy. Checks his phone for tweets as to which house to head to.

dude, stay at home and hand out some damned candy to the "kids" instead of acting like a moocher! Your costume screams you got money to buy your own fix.

The Kraft commercial with the adult heads on kids' bodies, critiquing the food.

Should I know who these adults are?

Not unless you regularly watch cooking shows. One is Carla who is on The Chew and was a former contestant on Top Chef. The other is Rococo DiSpirito who was a guest judge on Top Chef and has been on various other cooking shows. Both are annoying and so is that commercial.
