They're asking way to much of Wendy's girl in these commercials

Yeah, but in the end she usually sticks some meat in it.

I've developed a healthy crush on Lilly the AT&T girl. While she may work for a soulless mobile provider, she doesn't live on fast food.

She seems kind of snotty. But maybe I'm just scared of assertive women.

Jessica Walter and Judy Greer are both "Arrested Development" alums that got their voice gigs on "Archer" coincidentally. But when they were looking someone to voice Len Trexler, they both recommended Jeffery Tambor because of their experience working with him on AD.

She was also on "Californiacation" if, you know, you're looking.

I think it's Monroe Muffler that it running ads featuring a couple of stereotypical Canadians that are obviously based on the Bob and Doug McKenzie characters from SCTV and the Strange Brew movie (for example, they call each other "hosers" and say "take off"). Those characters are 34 years old. I wonder how many people under, say, age 40 have the foggiest idea what that commercial is parodying.

Holy crap this Staples commercial where these people are dancing like idiots doing the "Shopping cart." Today's the first time I've seen it and it's been 4 times in 30 minutes.

105.9 and DVE here in Pittsburgh is playing the absolute hell out of the Subway "what's for dinner? Another bland can of something? Another non-descript box of pasta?" commercials. I think they run it every commercial break. Maybe it's just me, but there's something funny about Subway making fun of bland anything.

The Subway product placement in Sharknado 2 was actually funny. They had Jared sitting in the subway next to a Subway billboard eating a sandwich. :P

Upon watching real football for the first time this year, I see State Farm is continuing it's campaign to make me contemplate homicide by recycling even more bad SNL tropes from 20 years ago-arooskie.

Similar to the McKenzie brothers comment, I wonder if the 30 and under audience have any idea who these characters are.

Who's next in their plans, the ladies man? The Spartan cheerleaders? Toonces the driving cat? Actually I can see the last one happening.

The Nationwide commercial with Peyton singing the tune is just completely terrible. Not funny, not interesting, probably took 5 seconds to write.

A fun fact for anyone who watched Silicon Valley: she was Gilfoyle's girlfriend that one episode who Erlich and Dinesh kept trying to hook up with.

Didn't Mr. Bill make a comeback in a SB commercial in the last few years?

I'm starting to come around to Lily the AT&T girl.

Wouldn't kick either of them out of bed for eating crackers, though.

I think their target demo for that ad is those who remember who Rob Schneider is and when he was on SNL.
