I've found a new one: anything that mentions Bratz.

Plus those shaving commercials that are like, "if you use this razor, not only will you suddenly get paid a million dollars and play sports,  but women will fling themselves at your feet, then forcibly take off your clothes!"

And that beer commercial with the "wide mouth" can openings- do you HAVE to glug your beer? does it taste SO bad that you must have the least time of it in your mouth? isn't drinking it supposed to be enjoyable, not something you just want to get over with?

You mean the point of beer isn't just to get as drunk as you possibly can in the shortest amount of time possible?   ;)

I hate those commercials for the "Work at home institute" that yell "12theawahi.com" 99 times and keep mentioning "LEGIT" work at home opportunities.   Oh, LEGIT.....

That's what vodka is for.

Anyone have the Mr Show companion book, I love the ad for one of their tapings

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.

Haha - awesome quote - that show was such a trip.

"He had a 6 inch taint... he was a star, I tell ya.."

Speakin of Mr. Show, the Cock Ring Warehouse (or whatever it was called) commercial always made me think of the Dirt Cheap commercials.  ("Any cock'll doooooooooooooooooooo!!!)  Made me wonder if one of the writers was from St. Louis or lived there at some point.

So it's like a show featuring a grown up Emily the Strange?

I really hate any commercial that has an overly joyous attitude to it. The old McDonald's commercials from the '80s and early '90s with their inane choir of people who sound like they're heralding the second coming of Christ singing things like "NO BONES! MCRIIIIIBS!!!!" are good examples.

Skittles commercials.

And has anyone else noticed that ads for dental care products seem to have stopped featuring men in them entirely quite recently? I haven't seen a guy in a toothbrush commercial in a year. Does someone in charge of these things think that men don't brush their teeth or use mouthwash?

Skittles commercials.


 Those disturb me. Specially the one with the guy and his moving beard that helps him eat Skittles. Did ANYONE understand what the hell that was about?

Their slogan is "Taste the Rainbow" trippy imagery is hardly out of keeping ;)

"Smell the Colors" was the one they were going to go with at first.

How about those commercials for cleaning or cooking gadgets that show women clumsily and despairingly operating their antiquated kitchen stuff? Apparently dustpans are just this insanly complicated hassle.

Yes, but I deal with them with quiet and grace, not floppy gestures and mime- like expressions.
