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

What's a computer? It's what I'm going to beat you to death with.

I think it's safe to say the Christmas car commercials are collectively the worst.  Especially anything GM.

Along with Rock-n-Roll Santas or cash spewing Santas. Of course these usually appear in local car commercials, so there is quite a bit of cross-over between the two.

The Coors snowman/beerman ad is turrible. https://youtu.be/5f9uQgJ3_dg

My 19 year old observed that if she knew who Hamlin was, she probably knew they weren't PJs.

I have a philosophy that the mother of the obnoxious girl has had a passionate affair with Joey Logano and hates Hamlin with the heat of a 1,00 suns.  

She put him up to it.  

Or the CIA.

i understand the culture we are in today but, 99% of all commercials appear to have mixed race marriages i think.

Agreed.  I also noticed that while there are one or two commonly occurring interracial marriage combinations in this country, those are almost never depicted, which I also find interesting (no, I'm not going to name those combinations).

The AT&T spokeswoman... now she's hot. 

What's the deal with the latest AT&T commercial where the hot chick stands in the background while a different employee talks to the customer? Is AT&T setting up a transition to a new spokesperson? Or is this some kind of throwback to the days of racial segregation?

Not sure which ones you are referring to

Guessing white guy, Asian woman for one.

Not sure.  I just thought they were practicing social distancing while in the store.

My bigger problems with that commercial are a) how much information the customer gets from the guy he called in litterally one second on the phone with him and b) the ATT girl's line about word of mouth advertising.  So out of place and pace for these commercials.

Aaron Rodgers has made eleventy ginjillion dollars and he needs a discount on his insurance rates?  And when he doesn't get one, he has to treat some poor agent like dirt?

At least it was the role Rodgers was born to play.

We've been watching Lost with the kids on Amazon...and have been getting ProCaps Labs ads for various vitamins pretty consistently when they break to "you should've paid more for the full subscription" commercial breaks.

I'm in a hate/love thing with these. The guy hawking them...ok- it's 4am, on the 3rd day of a suicidal bender, and this guy desperately needs a bump. Eyes are glazed, sweaty, on the verge of tears...and since there was nobody around to blow for a fix, he's somehow trying to sell vitamins for your hair, nails and skin instead.

My thing is, there are 3-4 ads where Rodgers and Mahomes fail to get it. Are we to believe they’re that dense? :loco:

I have the same thought every time I watch this commercial - "this is exactly how dooshbaggy I think Aaron Rodgers must be in real life."

And if Rodgers is that great in golf where he makes a hole in one with driver... why isn't he better in Pro Ams like Tahoe or Pebble Beach?  pfffft.  I call BS.

It seems to have gotten even worse since I originally posted. Look, I just want to listen to a random Huey Lewis and The News playlist without this joker talking about his abs and Hugh Jackman every 2 minutes. Is that so much to ask?

I think they deliberately flood us with the most obnoxious ads as a ploy to get us to spring for Premium.

No question. They have their own youtube adds doing explicitly that - the one with the baby crying then saying you wouldn't have to hear this if you pay for Premium is the worst.

I consider myself on the "socially liberal" side (don't want to get too political though...), but...... is it me or is there an inordinate amount of "mixed race" couples on commercials right now?  I mean, what percentage of couples in the US are of mixed race?  I get they are trying to "get with the times" but it seems forced.  Shrug.

Maybe there aren't as many mixed-race couples because everyone grew up not seeing any in commercials.

Perhaps.  I doubt it, but certainly appreciate the alternative thinking.  

And to expand... it's mostly car commercials.  Maybe it's just the channel(s) I watch and when I watch.  Just an observation.  :)

Not really but I do laugh every time he sits on the volley ball like an egg. 🏐
