The Metro PCS commercial with two Indian guys sitting there talking about wireless fees fighting like a Cobra, so get Metro PCS Mongoose. Um...what the HELL?! The Blip.TV commercials have always been stupid, but this is just a whole other level of dumb.

Plus, am I the only one who thinks these Indians (not Native Americans) are offensive?! I know it's silly since I am white, not Indian. And I'm not sure what the stereotype it's supposed to be, but jeez.

I've only heard the radio version of that and it's asinine, they go on about "The Village" but people who work in the call centres are, for the most part, right from the urban centres rather than anything rural.

agreed. Geico gecko is cute and funny at times, cavemen is kinda meh now, googly eyed money is ok,. They at least have a variety.

Sonic ones are NEVER funny. They are so bad they suck the life out of you. I never eat at sonic. 1: The commercials suck ass and that would be saying the ads work. 2: The food is crap. Seriously been a few times. Never had good food.

You know, if Sonic started talking with Sega about cross publicity they might get somewhere.

I have to say the most grating local (As in Syracuse, N.Y.) commercial is for a place called Nationwide Warehouse. This one is from 1992 and recorded from the T.V. but you get an idea of how irritating the screaming, Billy Mays clone is in these commercials.

I mean why does the guy have to scream to get people to buy furniture?

Oh, and all diamond commercials!

"You Sass that hoopy frood Ford Prefect?"

You called?

You know, if Sonic started talking with Sega about cross publicity they might get somewhere.

You know when I first heard about a chain of restaurants called "Sonic", the first thing that popped into my head was wondering if the speedy blue hedgehog was somehow involved. However that's because I always liked his classic games on the Genesis. (Still prefer Toejam and Earl though.)  This seems like a no-brainer for Sega, especially since they're trying to re-launch the character with Sonic The Hedgehog 4.

We had this one playing in front of our Indian films last month:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/rCJBQJSqhxM" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/rCJBQJSqhxM</a>


"Don't want to get disowned by your racist parents? Then use our service!"
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

Uh notice it is about mid day in this english speaking country (most likely midwest US) and in China at the same time?

If you want to stick it to them, go to Staples and yell that out at the top of your lungs at every price you see. It's their own fault.
