    Are there some TV commercials that you find yourself giggling at?



    There's also a Verizon Wireless ad we like. The mom and dad are standing at the living room window watching their kids shovel snow....the dad tricked them into it, saying he'd let them have additional cell phone minutes. The part my husband likes is the dad....the mom says it looks cold out there and the dad says "Yeah, freezing. I ain't going out there." A minute later he burns his tongue on his coffee....and their kids are out shoveling snow. I think it's a glimpse into the future of the type of parents we'll be. :o



    What about you?
    Just figures that you and Tina and I like the same commercial! Everytime I see this one, I laugh out loud like I've just seen it for the first time! Kills me!
    "Ow! I burned my lip!" Bwwwwwaaaahahahahaha! Our poor children are sooo in for it!

    I also put a vote in for the Verizon commercial. It cracked me up the first time I saw it and still does . My truly favorite commercials are for any type of prescription drugs. I crack up at the side effects. "So take this to remove your wart...side effects include: Vomiting, loss of appetite, skin rash, possible stroke and death has occurred" lol it just cracks me up! I'm sick, I know! :devil:

    I hate hate hate the Dentyne Fire commercial where the parents are meeting their daughter's boyfriend. She pops in a piece of Dentyne Fire into her mouth and immediately jumps on her boyfriend in front of her parents. Then her mom does the same with the dad. :shudder: I hate this commercial.

    I'm currently working for a consultant in the advertising industry and have come across some really great examples and pure duds. It's weird the sort of things you learn about advertising from both the agency's point of view and the marketer. Makes me wonder about the marketers who say, "Yeah, that's a good way to advertise our product."

    Ew! The talking baby freaks me OUT! Yech!!

    The other one I don't like is for a mucus drug....some kind of drug to get the gross germs out of your lungs.....mucinex? There are gross cartoon germ guys being attacked by the drug. It's just gross!!

    The other one I don't like is for toenail fungus. The ad literally makes my toenails hurt.

    Yeah those food commercials like Carl Jrs where they seemingly try to gross you out makes me go huh :confused:

    I mean, you want me to buy your product why are you trying to make me hurl.

    Cherios has an ad out now(as does another cereal commerical) that has a guy eating his cereal very loud in my ear...even when I turn on the mute the caption reads "loud smacking"........

    Another set of commercials I turn on my mute for is these drug commercials where the side effects are worse then the disease......"side effects may include blurred vision, vomiting, itchy skin, loss of bladder control, death, restlessness, and shortness of breath" ....notice how death is always slipped in there(and who wouldn't lose a little bladder control if they thought they were going to die).....but your toe nails will never look better

    I like Sierra Mist commercials, especially the ones with the dog.

    I like the new Disneyland Commercials with Dumbo, Herbie, Genie, and many others.

    Jack and the Box commercials always make me grin.

    I really miss the old 1980s Henry Weinhards Private Reserve beer commercials ......they were the best.

    Mu most dreaded ad is the one with Bob and the pills that make him.. whatever.


    The funniest ad I ever saw was the one with Bob in the quasi Home Depot. He is in there learning how to handle his wood. Never saw it again but i will never forget it.

    Best ad is the Car ballet. The one where the car is weaving its way through cars that are doing a slow spin. Like a beutiful ballet.

    My absolute favorite ad is the guy talking about everything he has, a 4 bedroom house, like my car it's new, I even belong to the golf club, how do I do it? I'm in debt up to my ears (grinning the whole time) someone please help me....
    I crack up everytime (can't remember what company the ad is for though.)

    I love the Gieco ads ...hair club for men spoof...great! but I like all the spoof Gieko ads. (cockroaches, reality tv show, cleaning products...etc)

    I Hate Quiznos ads...first the dead Hamsters what the H was that all about??????
    now they have some talking baby...he just scares me.......

    No not just you, in fact I've entered that commerical into my mental rolodex under "ways to tortue my children when they reach the teen years" I figure they're going to torture us enough I have to plan ahead

    There is one that ranks on my ALL TIME most obnoxious...It ran ALL the time just before Christmas...

    It's the one with the overacting wife in bed FAKING an orgasm over her freakin' coat.

    "Wrap you arms around me...IIII WAAAAAANT TOOOO FEEEEEL Your WAAAARMTH"

    And her moron husband is grinning because she's so happy.


    PUKE! I never could hit the mute button fast enough.

    I will never buy a Burlington coat...I will never buy ANY coat! All coats are evil! They make dorky women overact!

    Oh wait...I live in San Diego...I don't need a coat...

    never mind.

    D :monkey:


    BTW: Wienershnitzle can do no wrong...except they should respell their name to weenershnitzle so I can write about them.

    BAH! That's the commercial during which I thought to myself, "I need to start a thread about ads!" I loved that one! I knew there were three I was going to post about!

    And I have no idea what it was for. I was trying to hold it in my head, so I could post about it, but it didn't work.

    The ones I am not so fond of right now are the ones that try to get people to eat more fast food. Weinserschnitzel started it with their "Chili Dog Diet" ad campaign. I know there is another fast food chain that has a similar ad concept running.Yeah, we need people to be eating chili dogs three times a day. Supersize Me anyone?

    Even though I don't have AOL, I love the guy in the commecial who says "I want my computer to sound like a Yeti". It makes me laugh EVERY time.

    The Dr. Pepper one is funny too.

    The first time I saw the DL celebration commercial... I was SO excited. They showed it so many times last week during Extreme Home Makeover... that I wasn't so excited anymore.

    This is not to say.. that won't buy their product though!!
