I go by a bank that gives away free pens. Growing up I always remembered bank pens being tied to a metallic rope, so I see that as progress.

They call those chains now.

Oh man, that ad is obnoxious.  Here honey, I got you a $2,245 piece of exercise equipment that also costs $39 a month to have some guy in Boston say your name.  I think you look okay as you are but you can stand to lose a few pounds and your self esteem is lacking lately. I forgot to put a bow on it but Merry Christmas!  Now go sweat and enjoy.  

And she films herself working out over the course of a year to make a highlight film for her husband as his Xmas gift ?!?

The commercial is mostly aimed at women. They think to themselves that they’ll actually exercise once they have a piece of equipment in the house, and LOOK, the instructors you pay get to know you and talk to you just like people on social media give you likes! And yeah, it will be hard some days, but the bike is right there at your house and look how rewarding it will be! And she’s really doing it for her husband anyway!

And then the guy goes along with it because maybe his wife will actually start exercising and look like that hot chick on the commercial that went from 105 pounds and 10% body fat to 104 pounds and 9.5% body fat after a year solid of using it.

Along with the moronic random fireworks during the summer.  Lets give these animals a break 

Yeah, not to derail the thread but this is the reason my dog is freaked out by random noises on the TV.  She can barely get up and every 10 minutes, be it on the TV in the living room (kids) or mine in my den, there's something that's freaking her out.  

Can't stand the random fireworks from June-August.  It freaks me out too with "mild PTSD" of my own.

These commercials can suck it. Obviously these things are expensive, so they show them in million dollar (plus) lofts surrounded by hip/expensive furniture.  No kidding, someone that can afford a joint like that can afford a Peloton.  Mr. Single Income With 2 Kids (looking at myself) will never be able to afford this.  Go to the damn gym.

Don't forget the admiring toddler she's setting such a tremendous example for.

The whole thing is like an alternative universe version of Black Mirror's "Fifteen Million Merits".

The Geico commercial with the agree to disagree so build a snowglobe is one of the most cynical takes on hopeful modern romance I've ever seen. It treats it like insurance would.

What's with the trend of dubbing voice overs with voices that clearly don't match the actor?

It's really uncanny valley-ish to me.

There is a really odd youtube commercial.  It's not that annoying, but I don't really get it.  It starts with a fat chick in a blue dress with safety goggles on and a bat, and she goes ham on a drone and her dress flies up and you get a look at her gross cankles.   At the moment she takes a swing there is some random dude just walking by that is absolutely not in on the gag and nearly gets hit on the backswing.

What's odd is they say "old drones are cheap crap" but this drone she just teed up looks no worse for the wear at all.  I don't get it.  

Why is some fat chick in an european type setting given a baseball bat to hit a drone (poorly)?  

WTF?  I seem to get fed this commercial all the time, I guess google thinks I want to buy a drone or something.  Possible i'm the only one seeing it.

There's a tax commercial (HR Block?) with a very unattractive woman and a fat guy who start dancing about getting an advance on their tax return. It's... unpleasant.

Draft Kings has been pushing their betting service HARD here in PA. Not just sports talk radio or during local sports, but during the news as well. 

I don’t really need to see Ben Franklin and Abe Lincoln making bets while driving through my state.

This new commercial from Ram Trucks ("A Whole New Perspective") is random and illogical and I hate it.

The point of the commercial is that the viewer can't tell if an object is large or if it's far away, right? That's why it's called "A Whole New Perspective", right?

The first scene seems to fit with the theme, as we can't tell if the snowcat is actually a tiny vehicle (loaded into the back of the truck), OR if it's merely off in the distance.

The second scene sort of fits the theme, although we figure out pretty quickly that the shipping container is, in fact, small.

BUT WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THE WIND TURBINE?!? It's neither small nor far away. It's just a regular freaking wind turbine. It has nothing to do with "perspective"!!

No sense makes it.

None of those bears wear underwear or any clothes in the commercial.  Why would there be a pair of underwear on the floor?  So they wear clothes when they are off camera?

It's not actually a family of bears in the commercial, they are a family of furries.  They have underwear on underneath their bear costumes.

What is the target demographic for the Lexus commercial where the phony woke bro uses the computer to cheat at book club so he can impress his high class girlfriend?

Do they think potential female customers are going to be attracted to that concept?

Dominos Pie Pass commercial using I assume a clip of Norm from Cheers entering a dominos and ordering a pizza.  Dude should be not be eating so many pizzas that the people at the local dominos know his name.

But that's the thing -- they don't even call him "Norm"! They blew the joke.

edit: I guess they didn't really blow the joke because the whole point of the commercial is that Norm is NOT recognized by the people who work at Dominos. But he's freaking Norm Peterson! Are we really supposed to believe that the people at the local Dominos DON'T know his name???

Domino's should start with making a decent pizza and THEN move on to gimmicks like "check in when you're five feet from the store" or "insure your pizza and receive one at a random time".
