I hate the Sprintern commercial, where they basically say we don't care what you want to purchase, but I will rip you off and steal the 2nd phone

Yeah, lots of respect for Dallas Buyers Club, but he turned himself into a skeleton to do that and looks like a freak still.

You are reading way to much into it


Where most people do most things "because somebody told me that's what I'm supposed to do" (come visit the Employment threads if you want to see that in action), I like the message of "Is that what *you* think you should do?"

Commercial from some women's razor. Three women in bikinis are shown from thigh to sternum. Each has a small topiary at crotch height. Two are fumbling assay with small scissors while the third trims her bush into a heart.

Abso. Effing. Lutely. Tacky. Ad agencies must be hiring 14 y.o. boys these days

really, I thought to was brilliant

how about the underwear commercial with the two guys bouncing around the truck cab as it goes over a bumpy road. and as their underwear both are firmly belted in place.

Do your boys bounce around?

I watched a chunk of the x-files marathon this weekend, and every single break had the awful "we're slingers" commercial where the second couple mishears them to be swingers.

Just a dumb commercial made unbearable by the repetition.
