YES!
I really didn't want to come off as being a miserable jerk for mentioning it, so thank you shafnutz for doing my job. :thumb:

I don't care if your daddy wants me to buy a car, he shouldn't be using you as a pawn. I'm gonna buy my next car based on reliablity, miles per gallon, features, etc., and not because your first grade daughter says I should.

Don't forget jewelry stores. They use children all the time...

Also, now that the holiday season is back...the deaf girl jewelry commercial is back. It makes no sense...if this guy is buying this girl expensive jewelry, shouldn't he already know how to communicate with her? Or is he just some kind of sick pervert with a deaf fetish?

I'm leaning toward "some kind of sick pervert with a deaf fetish." :thumb:

I hate jewelry commercials - as a woman, I find them incredibly offensive.

I think it's hilarious how much the jewelry industry has brainwashed the human race. I mean, let's face it, we are absolute morons for spending $5,000 on a glorified piece of rock. Think about all the money that is wasted on jewelry every year? And what do you do with it? Just wear it around. What a stupid waste of money. YOU ARE PAYING FOR A ROCK.....................you can buy a pet rock for $5 and it comes with a leash.

Forget Big Oil or Big Pharma....it's time to take down Big Jewelry. Starting with that a-hole Jared for his stupid commercials.

I don't remember which ED medication it was for, but the commercials with the random bathtubs in the middle of a field, and on the beach, make me want to scream. I absolutely HATE them.

You're evil...

On a side note, has anyone ever actually met "Jared"? Is he a real person? Or is he a massive supercomputer buried under Mt. Shasta?

Awesome. I found that hilarious first time I saw it.

On the bad side, the new Gap kids commercial

I don't understand AT&T's campaign...seriously, how big of a market is the "I want to talk on my cell phone AND surf the web on my cell phone at the same time" market? I've never had the urge to do that.

I bet AT&T won't mention when they turned off or sold the tower Cingular had here and terminated my service because I was making over 50% of my calls "off network".

The talking pothole commercial...when it comes on the TV, it is at a volume that is 600 decibels louder than the show I am watching.
