I post my least favorite commercials here


Recommended Posts

I get the basic premise -- big football fan gets to watch her favorite team anywhere she goes on Verizon Wireless with NFL Mobile.

But there are two things that I just can't understand:

1) She gets progressively hotter/less frumpy in each scene. Why? Does subscribing to Verizon make you hotter?

2) At the 0:11 mark, why does she say "Aww" like something bad (or maybe 'cute'?) happened, and then correct herself "I mean awww yeah!"?

One of those commercials where if I saw it once, it wouldn't register with me positively or negatively. But they play it so often during football games, I've had a million opportunities to notice how odd some of these elements are.

As for #1, the "premise" (I guess) of the commercial is that she's tired of being alone and wants to meet a guy and thinks NFL Mobile is the way to do it... she thinks learning all about football will make her more appealing to the opposite sex. Which, of corse, gives the commercial an opportunity to showcase all the places you can use it (in line, on the bus, at a party, etc.)

And #2... I think the "Awww" is she thinks the Lambeau Leap is cute, but then realizes that's not every football fan-like, so she corrects herself to sound cooler. She's trying to learn to become a hardcore fan.

That commercial is on a LOT.

I still want to punch that curly haired kid who claims she doesn't know what a computer is in the face.

Excited neighbor: Hey man, check out these cool Xmas decorations I got for our yard! GMC-buying DB: So what? Mine lights up too *hits remote, truck beeps* EN: Wow, that's awesome, thanks for

Hey. Hey. What you doing on your computer? What's a computer?       Millennials, amirite?

Because it allowed her to get out of the house and transform from sports know-nothing introvert cat lady to hottish superfan. There's really no mystery here.

Yes, and there was also one where some guy went from sports-clueless office dork to the office sports expert/cool guy.

I've never understood - If she's such a huge fan, why does she have to watch every game on her damn phone? She's at Home Depot on one of those too. That takes priority? I don't get it.

It shows her leaving the house and assimilating with society.

Jake: What about her?

[indicating hunchback girl walking by]

Austin: So baby's got a little back. Hunch, that is. Naah, way too easy.

Jake: OK.

[indicates hippy albino girl playing guitar]

Albino Folk Singer: [singing] I have no pigment...

Austin: Any girl with a guitar is hot.

Albino Folk Singer: [continues singing] I need sunscreen...

Austin: Granted, she's a hippy albino. She could still be prom queen.

Jake: OK, uh, what about the Fratelli sisters?

[indicates awkward Siamese twins conjoined at the head]

Austin: So they're slightly disfigured and connected at the head. But combined, those two make up one pretty decent chick.

Reggie Ray: Yeah, I'd do 'em.

Austin: I know you would, Reggie Ray. But no, I'm looking for somebody who's really messed up. I'm talking about a real ####bomb.

[Janie Briggs walks by]

Austin: Well, bombs away!

Jake: No, no, no, no, anyone but her! Not... Janie Briggs! Guys, she's got glasses and a ponytail! Aw, look at that, she's got paint on her overalls, what is that? Guys, there's no way she could be prom queen!

Malik: Damn! That ####'s whack!

The "my debut album" 5-Hour Energy guy. So punchable.

:goodposting: x 1 f##king MILLION!
:goodposting:

Wish other companies would stop trying to copy Old Spice shtick.

Also, the commercial where the guy has his girlfriend play a bunch of computers at once and he's singing/playing instruments to propose to her. Not sure what it is but I really, really want to punch him in the nuts.

The Bud Light Pitbull commercials are terrible. I hope they're paying him a ton because his cool factor is in the toilet.

Is this guy famous or something?
Rapper. Apparently popular with hispanics. Dr. Pepper used him for an ad campaign a few years ago.

Guess I am. He makes it so clear in the commercial.

I am sick of seeing the Microsoft Surface commercial:

WTF is up with the little girls dressed in Catholic uniforms doing the dub step (or whatever the hell it is called)?

Stupidly irritating.

:lmao:

this one is extremely unfunny

This Galaxy Note II with the fat, lazy, #### thief ...this reminds of so many similar ilk that I can feel my blood pressure rise every five minutes it has been on today.

Every line in this Cadillac commercial is pathetic. Target market: Giant Douchebags.

Still an old guy car.
It's the caddy that zigs
I listen to a Canadian radio station on the way to work every day (102.1, I think it's CFNY). They constantly play these Spence Jeweler's ads that are really schmaltzy and annoying. Just bug the hell out of me. I never realized every piece of diamond jewelry known to man has a special name and backstory, or that there were so many ways to say "I love you". :X :yucky:Eta didn't mean to quote this post Edited by Ranethe
