Creepy commercials!

Recommended Posts

I hate all commercials but the Arby's guy is really creepy, don't think I'll eat there anymore and what's up with the dude Limu and his "emu" on the Liberty Insurance commercials!:o KFC needs someone new too, someone who actually looks like the Colonel! The local car dealers are really bad, they scream and yell at you, no way I'm buying a car at those places!:wacko:

 

Got any that you think are really creepy!!????

I don't know about creepy, but if I hear that idiotic "Turn to the Nerds" commercial again I may throw my TV out the window :wacko:

"Liberty, Liberty, Liberty" I thought stupid jingles went out decades ago - well, maybe it ain't a jingle if you just repeat the same word over and over!

Toilet paper ads that use "cute" words and jingles to describe bodily functions;

Sanitary napkin/tampon ads 

Male "enhancement" ads

Drug ads

Shyster ads, claiming that certain lawyers can get you great recoveries from drug and medical device manufacturers for "defective products"

 

I'm sorry, but there are just some topics that are best discussed with your doc and resolved factually - not relegated to mass marketing slogans and animated bladders leading you around by the hand.

Not creepy, just incredibly annoying.  All the commercials that refer to any medical condition by using initials. RA, ED, IBS, MOUSE. etc.

Not so creepy, but the Jimmy Dean commercial has a voice-over that purports to be himself.  Considering that he's been dead for a few years, and the voice sounds nothing like him... And, I don't eat sausage anyway! :mellow:

Sorry, but they pulled the audio from their old commercials.  That really is Jimmy Dean.

I do like those Jack Links jerky commercials when the Bigfoot thumps on dumb asses out in the wilderness. Although, it doesn't make me want to go buy jerky.

My brain tends to shut off when a commercial comes on. A conditioned defense mechanism I reckon.

AH!  But you remember what it is for!  Some commercials, when they are over, I have no clue what they were advertizing.

The commercials are bad enough, What's worse is that they intentionally play them right at lunchtime and dinnertime just to put you off eating your food. :angry:

Does anyone really like Flo and the Progressive ads? They have been so (too) long running.

No. They were amusing for the first year or so, but not since. She’s getting a little long in the tooth and kinda creepy these days.

Nothing against her - she's an actress working for a living and for the exposure she gives the company, I would think she'd be worth more. I just don't like the character she plays. Things that make you go "blechh!"

Gotta hand it to Geico. At least they try to make their commercials funny or entertaining. The cavemen shtick wore out quickly but the rest has usually been good.

I can't recall the advertiser (just shows ya that the ads themselves are so entertaining that the product is forgotten), but the "Running of the bulldogs", where the guy gets knocked down, and one of the dogs comes up and licks his face is funny! :D

Progressive Field here in Cleveland is where the Indians play. Flo is plastered all over the place! She's also all over the Ohio Turnpike at the toll booths! Yea she's getting a little annoying!

I like Flo.  She reminds me of the slightly trashy sweet girl who dropped out of high school, is too proud to be on Welfare, and is making it the best she knows how.

I love commercials.  That's when you go pee or make a sandwich.

When my wife and I moved into our new home here in SoCal in March we got a great deal on internet but it came with basic cable. For two evenings we still didn’t have our PS3 and everything hooked up so we watched regular cable TV.

I had forgotten how annoying commercials were and how many were medical commercials for prescription medications.

 

”...side effects include (insert things here you didn’t know a body could have and continue living)” And Sixgun is right! The worst ones were at dinner time. :blink:

 

That was the first time I had watched commercial TV in years. I am hoping to keep up my trend if not having to put up with it for years to come.

I find the Cottonelle commercial where they “wipe” the peach and then talk about taking the guy home to meet the other guy’s parents!

 

The Pepto commercials and the body function/sexual enhancement ads have taken things more than a little too far!!
