What current ad campaign makes you contemplate homicide?

Postby slappybrown on Thu Oct 08, 2009 1:02 am

For me right now, it is those stupid GEICO commercials, with the eyeballs on the money and Rockwell's Somebody's Watching Me. I have GEICO for car insurance, and they are great, but this is driving me to reconsider using them. Its having the opposite of the intended effect.

When I read the title of this thread I was coming in to post about that very same thing. I'd shove half that thing in a vending machine and take the other half to a sleazy strip club just to make it hurt.

Any commercial with "regular joes" attempting to perform the song (and most of the time horribly). Who decided that a bad outtake should be the commercial? LAME.

Any commercial that makes gratuitous use of toddlers saying the slogan of the company/car dealership in a cheesy way. It doesn't make me want to use the company's products or buy cars, it makes me want to kick the kids through the uprights

The Geico cavemen pretty much make me want to spree kill.

I am also no fan of the radio commercials where two people have the world's most fake conversation about who they will/will not be voting for.

Richard Basey (The Ford King) Shults Ford in Wexford and Shults Ford Lincoln Mercury in Harmerville. What a piece of work that guy must be like in real life for him to present his business that way on tv.

-"He went to Jared"

-Car commercials that don't even talk about the car until they show a brief picture at the end of some artistic piece of crap

-Toilet paper commercials that use puppies to demonstrate how soft they are....I can't remember the last time I wiped my *** with a 3 week old labrador retriever

-Gus, the 2nd most famous groundhog in Pennsylvania. I would like to show him the business end of my 12 gauge

(lol....a little pent up anger today) :D

On the radio its the electronic cigarette commercial. The two parts of the commercial that really get on my nerves are the part where the guy inhales and then says "You just blow rings of water vapor" and then the annoying guy at the end that repeats "Do it for free!"

I also don't understand the toilet paper commercials with the bears that get toilet paper stuck on their rears. I know there are some hairy guys out there, but when has that ever happened to anyone?

ED commercials pitching devices, viagra (especially the viva viagra singalongs)etc. Could be a fear reaction at my age.
Female products commercials for female incontinence, yeast infections,etc. Prostrate commecials for guys.
Scooter store commecials for zippy wheelchair commercials.
Political commercials in general regardless of party or side of the issue.
