I post my least favorite commercials here

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.

That's the worst!

 

I mean...huh.

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?

I'm sure it's been covered here but the grub hub song where it sounds like the backup singers are saying s*ckit s*ckit *s*ckit over and over :hot:

-QG

Was just coming here to post about GrubHub.  I assume you're talking about the same one I hate... the one with the incredibly annoying flute music?  It's terrible.  Terrible.

yes - the s*ck it part comes in about half-way through the song.

Hmm, now I'll need to go and listen for that and it'll likely make it even more annoying.

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.  :) 

Are you forgetting WE DON'T HAVE TO COOK ANYMORE!!!!!

I'm in mixed race marriage, but I notice these in commercials too. I think rather than trying to be representative of society, it might just be to cover a wider spectrum of audiences. If you have a black wife, white husband, asianed son, mexican daughter, it's more likely to resonate with more viewers? I dunno, just a guess.

Oh I'm sure that's the reason.... I just notice it's out there WAY more than it has been, even 1-2 years ago.

And I would consider myself in a mixed-race marriage too... wife is Cajun :lol: 

Also - probably poor form posting this in the "least favorite commercials" thread... I have no problem with them; again, just an observation.

every car commercial where the couple hops in their ATV/SUV and off roads to a hidden spot to hike and camp.  just seeing 100% of these people hiking and camping somehow irks me.

Cut down the damned hedges so you can see the cross traffic MORON. . . and why does that dude look like he's 30 years older than his wife?

agree - 99% of those vehicles will never see anything but pavement.  "Hey folks, just buy the idea of being rugged and outdoorsy - then hit the mall, the sofa and call it a day"

every commercial where i need to see you and your kids at home or just your kids at home.  what the hell do your kids have to do with me or the product?  

every laundry commercial where the laundry room in the house is the size of manhattan loft.  giant machines, cork boards, a bench for sitting.

And then when you actually see those vehicles on the road, they are swerving left and right to avoid minor potholes and manhole covers.

"Where's the pizza?"

Sweetie, if your parents didn't feed you before dropping you off for me to do the babysitting I didn't know about...you're going hungry.

That's probably the least annoying thing about that abomination of a commercial.  I want to throat jab that lady.

The part that annoys me is that the wife saw the appointment and assumed it was a couples dinner.  Then, when the kids show up, she's dragging HIM out of the shot like it's his fault.  :hot:

I'm still trying to figure out just how much time it actually saved by using her phone to start the car? They act like it was a 30 min time saver.

It's such a millennial commercial. Let's do everything through our phone/watches instead of actually talking with each other to remove ambiguity.

Kudos though for thinking such people actually meet in person.

Actually the couple outside heading for the car is the couple leaving the kids (black top/ponytail vs white top dumb lady).

Some anti-smoking group here in Minnesota is running ads on Spotify telling me to check out how smoking costs me $500-ish every year even if I don't smoke.

Now what the #### am I supposed to do with this information when I get it? Walk up to a smoker, punch them in the face, and demand my five hundred bucks?

Fwiw, my kids do some acting...just about every call for commercials during covid has been to be shot at home with the family- I think to avoid liability.

A pack a day smoker spends over 2 grand a year on smokes.  Sounds like us non smokers are getting a pretty good deal.

Along with the lack of lung cancer, COPD, not being able to walk 12 feet without needing a rest, etc....

I don't know which part of this thread makes me happier, when someone validates my own hatred of a commercial by posting about it, or when there are six or seven posts about a commercial I realize I am lucky enough to have never even seen.

This has likely been covered but... any company that still uses the most overplayed refrain in the history of music (nah nah nah nah, hey hey hey, goodbye) in their commercials should be allowed to be legally firebombed with impunity.

The apple watch one with the guy going on and on about where and when he wants to take his echocardiogram. That's the big selling point? Who gives a ####? Also, why is he sitting in a boat in a tiny area of open water in the middle of a frozen over lake/river at the end of the commercial?

The stupid Microsoft Teams commercial that features the bike shop.

Boss guy:  "We were doing well until the virus hit and..."

Millennial chick with vocal fry :  "It just dumped."

Too bad they play it pretty much every commercial break on ESPN.

GMC seems to have only 2 commercials, which are playing over and over again.  The "nah nah nah nah" one and the Christmas one "one for you and one for me."

March Madness with lots of candidates, but I don’t care how many technological bells and whistles you add, I am never buying a freaking Buick.

Also, remember when Apple commercials were actually good?

Weird scat-pat-pat-a-booey song while the dumbest woman in history drops her iphone across 4-5 city blocks onto a pile of sand.

This commercial makes me wish Steve Jobs would die.

Yeah, that Apple one is really surprising.  I thought it was a competitor doing a spoof on Apple or a cheap copy.  How'd such an annoying thing get the go-ahead from Apple?

They’ve had a run of bad ones. The AirPods one with the dude doing double Dutch everywhere is terrible. I’m probably in the minority but the “Shot on IPhone” ones make me cringe as well. That’s just what we need is more self-obsessed TikTok’ers shooting videos.

The apple commercial needs to removed fast.

also, there are some airbnb commercials airing that have this awfully sad music and photo montages.  i think they are promoting fun times, but i have no idea who these people are, why they went to this place and everything seems out of context.  they have one with alot of golden retriever moments, did they rent the house cause the dog has a bucket list?  awful

I call that the sad dog ad. Some awful music to boot. Hard to believe they think that makes people want to rent a bed and breakfast.

someone else gets it!!!  is the dog dying?  is that one guy recovering from cancer?  is this a fun time or, seriously, a bucket list item?  i simply don't get the music.  i'll stay in a hotel.

I'm getting a bit tired of the Scoop There it Is! commercial (in fact, I have no idea what they are advertising), but then I notice something that makes me chuckle anew and my self-loathing over being so easily manipulated just festers.
