"Can you believe we get paid to do this?"

What, pretend you design video games for a living, you unconvincing 5th string actors?

Haha - you beat me to that quote.

Friends of mine in art school would joke about that commercial :

"Do you like to draaaaw?  We'll shend you this informashional packet.. "


And it just shows people coloring in shit and vitual paint-by-numbers kind of artwork.  It was so bad!  You were supposed to trace a turtle or pirate and send it in to see "if you qualify for art education"

Wait, are you saying that all my turtle and pirate drawings will NOT make me a world famous artists?    But I LIKE drawing Binky.

I hate those CHEF TONY HERE (cuz he yells) and they show this meatball sawing a can in half with his crappy knives, then he cuts a frozen fish and a tomato.

He has a chef hat on, so he MUST be a chef.

Speaking of local commercials....

There's a car dealership here in S. Fla that shows the owner and his wife with pictures of the dealership behind them....

And the wife is always wearing this weird-ass, kind-of 1960's Sunday Church hat even though she's wearing basically a casual blouse and slacks/jeans....

It's kind of Stepford Wife-ish and unnerving.

There are some local St. Louis commercials for "Dirt Cheap Liquor and Cigs".   REALLY, that is the name of the place.  And you have to love their catch phrase "We are the last refuge for the persecuted smoker."

Really, who would be caught dead drinking "Dirt Cheap" brand beer.   Now THAT will get you the ladies.

Can you draw "The Captain"?

inept scrawl that is vaguely sea captain like

No? Well then, fuck you! You are a worthless piece of garbage. Not only are you devoid of talent but you are probably empty of all human emotion.

Here's my responses to a lot of the one's mentioned so far in this thread.

The anti-smoking ads make me want to start smoking out of spite.  And the thing that pisses me off the most is the letters jumbled together at the end of all the new ones (when spelled out it says "What the fucks up?"  That's great, let's stop kids from smoking while encouraging them to swear. 

The Debit Card ones that get pissed at people using cash.  There is no way that credit cards are faster than cash.  The commercial forgets to show..(please select language...card type...dialing....processing.... please ask cashier to select payment type...enter PIN number............declined... please select another form of payment.)  Wow, buying a cup of coffee is way more involved than it used to be. 

The anti-marijuana ad that pissed me off the most was the one where they said 25% of teenagers dead from auto accidents had marijuana in their systems and then says "I guess it's more dangerous than we thought."  They forget to mention that marijuana doesn't leave your system for weeks, unlike alcohol.  It can still be found in your blood waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay after you are no longer high.  Now I've never smoked weed or done any drugs (seriously) but propoganda ads like these make me side with the hippies (and that saddens me because most of them stink.) 

And I don't care how many carbs are in anything.  Shut the hell up. 


If someone invented a device that would allow you to instantly provide a rebutal to commercials for all the world to see, I think television would actually be watchible to me.

Oh and one other thing about the cheaply made local car lot commercials.  One of the local dealers has taken to include his severly autistic kid in his commercials saying Spencer wanted to be in a commercial.  In the mean time Spencer pretty much just stares at the floor and drools.  I don't think he wanted to be in the commercials at all,  I think the father wants you to feel bad for his family and hopefully he'll sell more cars.

Oh, man, Utica car commercials. All time low of commercials, ever. Like it's not bad enough it's a yelling dude, in front of beat up ol' crappy cars. No, he's trying to sell these things.

Hey idiot, your audience doesn't have enough between them to buy a single car and at least 75% are too old and blind to see the damn TV

Everyone in Utica, NY, is either retired, dead, going to be dead within ten minutes, or is actively trying to move out of the area.


Ahhh, crappy commercials. As for the girls gone wild commercials, they bothered me (though their choice of placement was hilarious) until I saw the Sklar Brother's sketch on them. Then I spent the rest of the time laughing.

Those viagra/viagra derivative commercials also annoy me. I do feel sad for the guy featured in them though. He's going to go his ENTIRE life with that stigma.

Doesn't it make you want to vomit when the voice over says "If you experience an erection lasting longer than 4 hours..."
