and girls gone wild is just a given. the commercials have made me hate the sound of steel drums for life.

It takes a lot to make boobs annoying, but those commercials certainly do the trick.

I'm definitely getting sick of the Head-on ad.  I want to apply a sledgehammer directly to the forehead of the person who made that commercial.

Well, it's probably because it's close to Christmas, but all the jewlery companies are playing their sappy commercials with great frequency now. They bug the living hell out of me.

Man: Here honey, here's my last three paychecks. We'll have to eat at Burger King for a few months, but isn't it shiny?

Woman: Aww thanks honey. I deserve this.

I have a special deep, black hatred for Jared Jewelers commercials. They consist entirely of people repeating in awed tones "He went to Jared!"

Plus Jared is really crappy and boring.

My missus got antique jewelry from Iago in Stratford and in fact still does.

Those jewelry commercials mean two things:

1. Women are shallow. They require expensive gifts like jewelry to make them love you.

2. Men have tons of money. Seeing as how every kiss begins with a piece of jewelry, we obviously have plenty of money and choose to show our love by lavishing expensive gifts upon our women.

Oh yeah there is a radio ad for, again the company alludes me, but it's a jewelers in which a woman is talking to her husband/boyfriend and saying "you know honey if I wanted to get you a set of wrenches I'd go to a wrench expert, you should go to a diamond expert"

Christ on a pogo stick, Wrenches = Diamonds in our crazy battle of the sexes world ::)

So blokie has to settle for a set of tools that cost what at most $60.00 while wifie gets a shard of sparkly rock that costs multiple times that. Hmm not offensive to both genders at all.

I hate the Kmart ads with the anthropomorphic blue light.  Part of that, I suppose, is because of the fact that I'm working there now, and every 10 minutes we hear an ad from the blue light over the store PA.

People just don't put the thought into mascots that they used to.  The Trix Rabbit had personality.  So did the Jolly Green Giant.  And Ronald McDonald.  Now mascots are pretty much just listing what their product or service does.  There's no heart!

When the animation shows her kind of kneeling down and then cuts away - I was laughing to hard to be shocked and horrified.

I don't like that either - that women want diamonds and all that junk.  Honestly, that's the last gift I'd ever want to receive.  I don't know if they carry any kind of symbolic romanticism or anything, but they are way too expensive - and frankly don't mean very much except "I paid a shit-load of money for these so don't f$@#ing lose them."

Really. I don't know if I could live with the guilt if someone bought me something that expensive and useless.

Not to mention the all too common link between diamond trafficking and terrorism.  Isn't THAT romantic?

Agreed, definitely not on my list of gifts, or any of the females I know, really. 

However, the potential future resale value can be quite high, so..   :D

Is it true that the whole diamond wedding ring is a fairly recently 'created tradition' by DeBeers? Or is that an Urban Legend?
