We males watch tampon ads, trying to discern their meaning.

I also hate 99% of the anit-drug / smoking ads....i usually end up lighting one up after everyone one of those damned commercials

Yeah, those "truth" ads are so friggin' annoying. As if young children just fall down and die from smoking.

Whatever.   ::)


Also, those MasterCard commercials got annoying after the 5,000th time. We get it. Enough with the damn priceless crap!!   :angry:

Finally, those ridiculous Axe Body Spray ads that now have more "bomb chicka wow wow".
Every time I see one, I want to break stuff. Kodiak MAD!!! KODIAK SMASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the fracked up credit card commercial where people pay for their item by just running in front of a scanner and it instantly processes your sale and you are not a fraking IDIOT by using cash.   You fraked up CASH using idiot!

* makes note to steal credit cards as there is no longer an ID check needed *    (yeah, RIGHT)

Also, basically all the commericals for male hair dye. There, they try to convince people that grey hair looks terrible on men, claiming that you'll be passed over for promotions and hideous to the opposite sex.

"Because nothing is more distinguished than glossy, plastic-looking hair!"

"...except, you know, grey hair."

Every time I see one, I want to break stuff. Kodiak MAD!!! KODIAK SMASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  I hate the ones that show women throwing themselves on to any man who has used the body spray (I've smelled it, and I don't recall ever jumping on a guy wearing it. I prefer Old Spice, anyway). How many stupid teenage boys have taken this seriously and doused themselves in the stuff, I wonder. I'm amazed lawsuits haven't been dished out for false advertising.

My brother uses Axe. It doesn't smell bad necessarily... but the whole damn house smells like it, it has the longest ?smell life? of any product I have ever encountered. Damn stuff gives me headaches though.

The debt consolidation commercials always bugged me. There's one with a guy saying "I'm in debt up to my eyeballs!" Here's my new house, my new car, "somebody help me!" Grinning like an idiot all the while. I would have to say that splurging on the giant house, grill, SUV, and riding mower would have been a better choice than using credit cards to buy expensive shit. Maybe I'm just old fashioned.

Don't forget <jingle>freecreditreport.com</jingle>.  Not only are the commercials ass annoying, but the entire thing is a scam by the credit reporting companies to circumvent the federal mandate that everyone gets a free credit report each year.  Simply confuse everyone that the site has something to do with the federal mandate and get them to sign up for a rather expensive subscription service.  The site even uses tricks to hide the small print.

indeed, that is the biggest rip-off.   Wow, my "free" credit report comes with a 3 year enrollment of "triple advantage" for only $100.   VAT a deal.

Not only that but, by going to that site and getting credit reports, you're actually screwing up your credit. It looks bad if you have a lot of credit reports... Bastards.

R-tarded commercials:

How about those Toyota commercials where some tool stands in front of the camera wearing a white shirt with the toyota website on it. Then he says something like, "I wish I knew where I could get a great deal on a great car," while he is pointing to his shirt. I wish someone would walk by and stick a fork in his pupils.

Then there are the home security systems ones. Whenever the alarm goes off, the husband is cowering in the corner with the children while the wife proudly answering the phone and says that the thieves have gone. Talk about a commercial made for women...

Any Subway commercial.
