    Re: My Vote for WORST Commercial Ever

    And many of those touting "non-prescription" remedies for everything from weight loss to "male enhancement" can also be a bit offensive at times.
    "If your erection lasts more than three hours, call a doctor..."

    Um, yeah, but not right away....

    By law the prescription meds cannot tout what they do, because they are by prescpition only. They are to encourage you to ask for them by name, because most doctors will prescribe what a patient asks for to keep them as clients (Just ask Rush Limbaugh)

Well, the lines must be around the block for people wanting to try this new miracle, right? And, if you actually had the stones to ask your doctor to put you on this stuff to begin with, would he not take the 30 seconds to tell you what could go wrong with it? Do we have to hear about all this crap every time "Dancing With The Stars" cuts away to a commercial? while I'm eating dinner? hoping to get a little action later?
      I think I'd probably ask where I could go and get the disease instead.

      With cures like that ...

        On a horrible side note, when I was working in the ER, while in college, we had a guy who came in with a priaprism (erection which WILL NOT go down). He took too many go pills, and his crank would not get small. I didn't know it, but this is a VERY serious issue. The nurse told me to go get some ice and apply it to the injured extremity. I told her that was a nurse skill, not a medic skill, and she got pissed. Long story long, a urologist had to come in and take these tiny needles and DRAIN the blood out of the penal veins. This guys screams could be heard in Utah. Ouch!!! I guess the moral is sometimes, Less is More.... buh dum dum, cha! (Sorry, couldn't help it)

          Has anyone said the Hardee's commercials yet?

            I am offended by the "Flat Buns" Carl's Junior commercial. I want to write a strongly worded letter.

                As a teacher that ad is offensive. My dad saw it and was like "that's horrible." And I love the Carl's Junior milk shake ad.

                  Okay! We get it! HeadOn! Forehead! Check!
                  I find that ironic, considering their latest commercials practically say what you just said, word for word.


                  Most of these commercials you guys have mentioned are mildly annoying at best. You haven't seen painful until you've seen a 30 minute commercial for a Charlotte NC car dealership or an infomercial that mimics a talk show and they discuss sexual dysfunction.

                  I'll take the diarrhea dance over the feminine hygiene commercial with the red period that pings around the pad like a pinball any day. That ranks a lot higher on my bad taste meter.

                  I like the Cavemen and most Geico commercials, just because they switch it up a lot (if you really think about it, the Cavemen are only a small part of their commercial concepts. And that's just the current commercials.) I like how folks thought the bee had a bad Spanish accent, when he has a real Spanish accent. Don't know why, I just find that amusing.

                    Yeah. The "flat buns" ad is disturbing. That's coming from a guy too.

                      This one is stupid, but I couldn't help but chuckle.

                        Apparently now they pulled it. Well half of it, the dirty teacher part.

                        And the guy in the Oreo commercial is from "The Boy Who Could Fly"/ "Uncle Buck."

                          It seems like ever since Carl Karcher lost control of CKE Enterprises (now based, by the way, about four miles away from me in Carpinteria, CA)...they are now aiming all their Carl's (and I guess Hardee's) ads at 12-18 year old males.

                          I find most of their advertising now to range from utterly stupid to patently offensive. But gee...I'm not in that target demo, am I...
                          God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
