Ok, an ad I hate that has no CF connotation:

It's for Downey fabric softener. Dude shows up on a first date wearing a grossly misshapen undershirt, and the voiceover says something like,"Is your detergent making your V-neck look more like a U-neck? Use Downey fabric softener next time. Downey is formulated...blah, blah, blah."

Forget the twisty neckline...why is this guy showing up on a first date in a t-shirt? And it's not even a "nice" t-shirt, it's a freaking undershirt!

Is that the one where the guy goes "You look nice" and she replies "you look.... comfortable"? Because I hate that one too! No one with functional eyes would be wearing that shirt anywhere. That collar is destroyed.

I just thought of the ad - I think it's realty or a search engine - where a guy searches for and finds a secluded house on top of a cliff so he can live miles away from any people.

I love that ad :lol:

Just saw a new one, from a jewelery store.

Very serious young man is speaking to someone off camera, and it goes something like this (complete paraphrase):

"...and I want you to know I love her very much, and will always be there for her, forever, so...before I ask her, I wanted to ask you," and he reveals an engagement ring he's holding.

Ahhhh, I get it, he's asking her father for her hand in marriage. A bit quaint, but ok.

Then the camera switches, and he's talking to...her kid! Her little pre-teen son! He's asking her *son* his permission.

I guess we know who's going to run the show in that family.

That damn date collar commercial is terrible!

I can't stand Shane Co commercials. I've only ever heard them on the radio, but it's always been terrible for me. "Get her what screw REALLY wants" what I want is not jewelry...

Just saw a Verizon ad I like.

They're current tag line is something like "Just OK Is Not OK."

The scene is a couple leaving their kids with a babysitter:

Babysitter: Have fun! And don't worry...I'm ok with kids."

Parent1: Wait..you're *ok* with ki-"

B: Bedtime 11PM-

P2: No, 8PM!

B: Wow, you're strict! And one of them is allergic to shellfish.

P1: Peanuts!

B: Hmmm...I probably should write this down. What's the WiFi password?

P1&P2: Our childrens' names!

B: Well, that doesn't help.

Voiceover: Just ok is not ok, go with Verizon.

I've long raised a stink about the Charmin toilet paper ads. Whether it's the stupid bears talking about shitting in the woods, or the "man on the street" ads with people grabbing a roll of Charmin from an interviewer, stepping into a public toilet, having a shit, then coming out and reporting on how much cleaner they feel with Charmin, their ads are just gross.

The latest - they actually demonstrate the superior wiping ability of Charmin on a frigging nectarine. They show how Charmin cleans the crease in the nectarine much better than the other brand, which leaves a noticeable dark streak in the crease.

Give me a break!

There's one playing constantly over one of the wife's shows, and they don't allow skipping, and it drives me crazy.

It's for lunch meat, and this snappy little song plays over a kid getting ready for school, and he's flipping his hands and fingers around in odd shapes while he's doing his morning routine, including having his dad make him a lunch meat sandwich for school.

Snappy song keeps play, "Today is the day/Everything is gonna be different..." and he's at school, flicking his fingers...and finally it's lunch time, and he goes up to this girl sitting all alone, the song stops, and he says and signs, "Hi. My name is Joey. Would you like to share my sandwich?"

Awww...so cute! Except that kid speaks like he's doing a little kid high-pitched bad impersonation of William Shatner's notorious jerky vocal cadence:

"Hi...my name is...Joey...would you...like to...share my...sandwich?"

NO, I WOULD NOT, JOEY!
