Stupid Commercials

Post by Chibi Son Gokou » Wed Mar 24, 2004 8:46 pm

What commercials do you think are stupid? The worst one I've seen was this one Cheetos commercial where they're in Nova Scotia and this guy was making a penguin out of a huge block of ice live on the news, and all these snotty kids standing around it were like "that's not art, that's bogus!", as if they could ACTUALLY CARVE A MUCH BETTER SCULPTURE! Ugh, it really pisses me off.

"Yeah, your penguin is bogus cause I can carve the Venus de Milo out of ice!"

Any of the Gushers commercials, because I cannt stand the way the kids' heads turn into fruit. That just bothers the hell outta me.
I also cannot stand any Mentos commercials. *Shudders*
There's this annoying commercial by BlueBell Ice Cream...one of their mottos is "We eat all we can and sell the rest". In the commercial, this extremely goofy guy gets hired to deliver, and he eats everythign on the delivery truck. It annoys me becuase people come into the candy store I work all the time, going "haw haw are you like blue bell? You eat all you can and sell the rest?" I want to punch people when they say that.

Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

I agree with the Gushers commecials. I also strongly dislike Chuckie Cheese's commercials. Those, in my opinion, are really dumb because of all the advertising the mouse gets. Same as the McDonalds commercials, for the same reason. "Let's advertise our spiffy new mascot! Let's forget selling our business, let's sell the mouse instead!"

Steve: See, it's like this: The bridge goes up and the soldiers rush out....

I agree with the MacDonald's commercials. It's with the singing. The early commericals they had, with all the annoying kids singing, "Na, na, na, na, naaaaaaa, I'm lovin it!" Was just so...UGH. Their recent variations of the song with other people singing it is tolerable, but please, no more kids. And same with Swiss Chalet, with the "Life can taste so good with Swiss Chalet" Another stupid one is for some random SUV type thing, where the guy is pulling the police car and just starts yelling at his wife after she makes a comment about the heated seats, he's just like, "LIZ! The heated seats don't matter right now, or the DVD! It's all in the handling..." BLAH. The guy's tone annoys me to no end.

I don't like the Trix commercials very much. Those little snots are always so damn mean to the rabbit, who only wants some cereal. Yeesh. Same deal with the Fruti/Cocoa Pebbles commercials with Fred and Barney in them...it's always "Barney, my Pebbles!" and some stupid pun made by Barney. Since when was Barney that mean to Fred?! O_o

What you said. I always feel sorry for that poor rabbit...

I hated that Quiznos commercial with the Spongemonkeys. They freaked me out...

Trojan condom commercials. We get it, their having sex. "Oh Billy! Oh yes! Right there!" "TROJAN!" -_- Those are just sad.

Spongemonkies remind me of hamsters with rabies. Those eyes O_o Moving mouths and yet saying nothing. Reminds me of this stupid girl in study hall that sang the song...in my ear -_- I swear, I will kill her for that, and the creators for those commercials.

And lastly, summer related commercials (especially in AZ). I don't get why they mention kids drowning for half the show in News on EVERY news station, and they still need to warn you to keep your gates closed. I say, keep the damn kids in your house!

Now, I hate all commercials (except for cool toys >_> like video games and such) but they all are equal in suckyness.

I like the spongemonkey commercials...
on topic:

Pokemon Colosseum commercial. "You cannot steal, our POKEMON!"
-_- isn't that what you DO in the game? STEAL the Pokemon from their trainers? YES. now SHUT UP HIPPIES!

This is an old one... Super Mario Sunshine commercial. that thing makes me want to kill myself. "Clean is better than dirty, and you should shut the hell up!"

Others annoy me a lot... mainly infomercials that last 30 minutes. annoys me SO MUCH.

The spongemonkeys commercial scared me. It was seriously messed up. However, as for the stupidest commercials, I only can think of a few.

And the nominees are:

The Fruit Loops commercial where Toucan Sam is attacked by the Tentacle Monster. I swear, it look just like Hentai. And then he starts getting bounced up and down on the tentacle... o_0. I can't eat Fruit Loops anymore.

The Enzyte commercials, with Smiling Bob. It's just... yeah. Can't Enzyte just spam my inbox like everyone else? Must they attack me with a smiling horny guy?

And all commercials for pregnancy tests. "Do you have abdominal cramps? Are you throwing up constantly? Are you gaining weight? Then you may be pregnant." WTF? Those are symptoms for damn near everything. Except gaining weight, but I'm already fat...

LMAO... that's great. Y'know, I was just thinking about that the other day. Glad you mentioned it. *breaks into fits of laughter once more*

Anyway, I hate that commercial for asthmatic children-- y'know, the "I don't want to feel like a fish with no water" commercial... but only because they show it constantly.

I'm also yet another hater of the Trix commercials. What's the problem in just letting the poor rabbit have some cereal? Is he going to use their "fruity powers" for world domination or something?

I can't single out any one commercial. I hate pretty much all of them. I barely have any tolerance for them anymore, and it's rare when I do find one I like.

I really hate the Go-Gurt commercials. It's like, "eat this and you'll be so cool you'll be able to walk on the walls too and if you don't, you'll suck!" and their product tastes like crap. I also hate that commercial for the Yugioh card game with the live-action people pretending to be Yugi and Kaiba dueling and Kaiba says, "It's time to duel!" For some reason, that seems like something Yugi should say instead of Kaiba to me....and then there's those awful Irwin Toys Sailor Moon commercials...."I'm Sailor Venus, and I bet Sailor Jupiter is at the mall with a boyyyyyy.." ><

I hate commercials for pretty much ANY prescription drug. They're either way too vague or way too specific. Can't they just say "This is x. It's for this. If you have that, go to your doctor and ask about it." and be done with it? No corny catchlines for me, or celebrity endorsements, or popular songs, thankyouverymuch. Shouldn't your doctor know about all the side affects and that "X is not right for everyone?" Damn, have THEM tell you. I hate commercials for old people. Not, like, FOR old people, but commercials aimed at them. For Rascals and Hoverrounds and Medicare and that stupid life insurance. Grrr. Low budget commercials!! However, these commercials can be avoided, because they're usually played on certain channels more often than others (Game Show Network and Hallmark Channel, for example).
I used to think the Capri Sun commercials with the kids turning into liquid metal were cool, but the new ones are just stupid.

Ooh! I forgot the drug commercials. Specifically the ones like "Proven to stop migraines. Side effects may include headaches, abdominal pain, and in some cases death." A migraine medicine that can cause headaches?? Or even kill me? No thanks, I'll just keep the headache I have, rather than get a new one or be killed. -_-

There is one commercial that I hate above all others. The "Adult ADD" commercial with the woman who's in a meeting and she's constantly getting flashes of stuff, that's not ADD, that's just crazy. And then they have her rubbing her head like ADD is making her brain hurt!
A close second is a Drug Commercial to 'get rid' of Childrens ADD symptoms. Mostly because of the side effects listed are like weight loss, vomiting, mood swings. Rather than adjusting to your childs special needs lets just make them a belemic haroin adict.

Oh God, I have that commercial on tape. "Sailor Mercury can use her star power to find Sailor Jupiter!"...or something. WTF?! Not to mention how horrendously UGLY those things are. The only Sailor Moon Irwin product I ever bought was a stuffed Artemis doll, and I'm VERY thankful for it.

No doubt about it, the Ovaltine Commercials. They are so unrealistic and corny.

Boy: Look, it's the Ovaltine Man!
The rest of the kids: Yaaaaaaay!
Young Girl: This is soo good! Is this NesQuik??
Younger Boy: No, it's Rich Chocolatey Ovaltine. It has more vitamins and minerals than NesQuick!!
Young Girl: That's great for kids!!
All the kids: MORE OVALTINE PLEEEAASSE!!!

:roll: I don't know about anyone else, but I've yet to find a kid under the age of ten that cares about how many vitamins there are in what they drink. And maybe if the whole thing didn't sound so proffesional, it would be a little more realistic.

New commercial (well, for me it is) that made the #1 stupid list.

It is a shoe commercial, and they're cartoon kids. The kid has like athletes foot or something and when he goes to dance, all the kids are all "ewww" and then, this song kicks in about how you should wear these shoes, and HOW they make your feet not stink. The worst part is the kids mouths don't go with the words they say or sing. Like the spongemonkies O_o The shoes are Geox Sneakers or something.

That is my new #1 stupid commercial ^_^

And I remember the Sailor Moon commercials. (girl with mercury doll) "The Negaverse is trying to DROWN the PLANET!" Enphasis on Drown and Planet because of how she said it. It's sad how we never see the Jupiter doll. (But I found the dolls in the yellow boxes to be quite cute, especially to their 95 or 96 ones.)
