Speaking of horrible singing, the "Heritage for the Blind" radio ads make me drive my car into a bus.

YES!!!

i saw it again yesterday and planned on posting it. it sounds like she took a bunch of opiates and then started singing while being stabbed in the brain.


haha, I can always rely on you to have heard these. I have only heard it on the radio, haven't seen the actual television spot.

I'm not sure what it's for, but there's annoying little girl that keeps saying, "she not newwww" "she's been here since kindergarten" in this whiny, probably red-headed voice...that needs to stop.

Earlier got hit with a back to back combo of 5% cashback and Truvia. That has to be a level of hell.

Me, too. These commercials are terrible and annoying.


In previous years' campaigns they've picked some pretty good college radio songs (e.g., "Tenderness" by General Public) seemingly intended to make Gen-Xer parents wax nostalgic. But I agree, the songs and overall idea of the current campaign isn't very good. The songs are horrible: "Mickey"? Ugh.

If I had to use the theme and Thomas Dolby, then I'd figure out how to do a history class with "Europa and the Pirate Twins."

I'll see if I can find the write up of it when I get home, but it's a promotional article from the ad company who says the character is "fun". :face:

Found it:

For Fans, “It’s Serious Fun” with NFL Media This Season. New Campaign Created by David&Goliath Features Commercials for NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football and NFL.com Fantasy Football

With training camps underway, preseason games kicking off this weekend and the regular season just around the corner, NFL Media has rolled out a new campaign entitled “It’s Serious Fun.”

Developed by LA-based creative agency David&Goliath, the campaign recently debuted with three television spots: “Rooftop” and “Mountain” for NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football, and “Wheat Field” for NFL.com Fantasy Football. The fully integrated promotion, consisting of national TV, print, radio, online, events and on-air spots, will appear throughout the NFL season.

In the launch commercials highlighting Thursday Night Football and NFL.com Fantasy Football, “It’s Serious Fun” show that there’s more to football than Xs and Os. The spots depict the NFL as a source of entertainment and camaraderie, a catalyst for more fun, more excitement, more competition and more time with friends. David&Goliath brings the idea to life featuring a deadpan yet charismatic character who speaks in a serious tone…all while talking about the fun of Thursday Night Football or NFL.com Fantasy Football. He does so in locations that are purposely dramatic and serious, yet he’s quirky and engaging.

“This campaign marks an exciting new path for one of the strongest and best-established brands in America,” said David Angelo, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of David&Goliath. “We are proud to work with NFL Media and engage its fervent, loyal fan base that has a boundless appetite for NFL content.”

Two TV ads for Thursday Night Football take place in cinematic, visually engaging locations. The first, “Rooftop” (30 seconds), has our character atop a downtown building with skyscrapers and the lights of the city behind him. He speaks about the excitement of football, of the memories that await with the beginning of the September-through-December, 13-game Thursday Night Football season.

In the second, “Mountain” (30 seconds), set on an alpine vista amidst a herd of sheep, the character weaves a story about the fun of watching games socially, of giving and receiving high fives and man hugs among a group of friends. The spot for NFL.com Fantasy Football, “Wheat Field” (30 seconds), takes place in an expansive golden field of wheat, and our character delivers a soliloquy on how easy and fun it is to sign-up and play the NFL’s fantasy football game.

This NFL season proves “It’s Serious Fun” with the NFL Media properties.

"The new majority agenda" ads

It's not new, and it's not majority. It's just agenda.

edit: i guess i can put all political ads in this thread, but those ones are especially annoying.

I never want to see another Summer Lovin' ad from Toyota again. They're repeating them even more than the Saved By Zero ads.
