See but at least that's Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords so he's a little entertaining.

Ah Christ on a Bike there is a TV version of the radio ad

Has anyone already mentioned the Skittles one with the old man having his nipples hooked up to a milking machine, and some bald guy is
drinking the geezer's tit-milk?  I hate that commercial because it's disgusting.

Apparently, I owe my DVR more thanks than I realized, because I have yet to see this commercial.  >shudder<

How... did that Skittles ad get approved in any way, shape, or form?  I mean, it might be cute if there were cows eating the Skittles, but... ew.

The hell? What ad agency came up with this idea? And just who is that washed up actor portraying the guy getting milked? I swear I've seen him in some 70's TV programs as a heavy.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

Those lame Vytrorin ads that say your high cholestrol is the fault of your genes.    Then they show a plate of food and some idiot that is supposed to look like that food with sappy music playing.

Remember the commercials for some heartburn medication thing where they would have some schmoe telling a story about how he was either sitting on a bus or an airplane or waiting on an elevator when he got a sudden attack of heartburn and some guy next to him hands him some medicine and tells him to take it, and then the schmoe tells him thanks and states his intention to see a doctor about the problem, and the other guy says: "You just did"?  (That's right, that whole thing was one question.  Deal with it.)

Those commercials made me want to smack somebody.  I wrote a parody of one once.  It was for a product I made up called Taquitos AntacidTM, which is pretty much what it sounds like: antacid in taquito form.

NARRATOR:  I was waiting in the office of my personal physician when last night's pizza party came back to haunt me...

(Shot of Narrator clutching his chest and wincing with pain.)

NARRATOR:  Heartburn... big time.  Then a man in a white lab coat with a stethoscope came in---

(Shot of the same)

NARRATOR:  ...and told me to take these. 

(Close-up of box of Taquitos AntacidTM.)

NARRATOR:  "Thanks," I said.  "You know I really ought to see a doctor about this."  And he said, "You just did."

VOICEOVER GUY:  Taquitos AntacidTM is the antacid most prescribed by leading doctors, but it is not for everyone.  Some common side-effects are drowsiness, headache, stomach ache, back ache, severe rash, boils, athlete's foot, tennis elbow, writer's block, dutch elm disease, rockin' pneumonia, and boogie woogie influenza.   Do not take Taquitos AntacidTM if you are nursing, pregnant, planning to become pregnant, have ever been pregnant, have ever known someone who was pregnant, or can correctly spell the word pregnant.  Ask your doctor about Taquitos AntacidTM today.

I hated that commercial, specifically because of the aunt getty thing... you can't GET genes from your aunt. If you are getting genes from your aunt, she's your damn mom, and your dad is a cheating bastard. ;)

Haha, never thought of that.   Maybe Vytorin is meant for inbred people with high cholestrial?

See I hater medication ads in general but I'm not sure if it's the ads themselves or the pharmaceutical companies that I've realty peeved at.

I just heard an ad for Viagra where they informed the listener "Even if you've only had a problem (i.e. impotence) a couple of times it could still be ED"

Oh wait so if the little man hasn't performed on the odd occasion I should start a drug regimen. Makes perfect sense to me.

Oh and I saw one for an athma medication: "I had to use my inhaler twice a week until I used Name of Drug blotted from memory by tickedoffedness"

So let's get this straight, instead of using an inhaler twice a week you think it's better to inhale a steroid twice a day, everyday? Gah!
