Commercials

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Any radio ad with a siren in the background. I hate that. Very distracting while driving. Mandatory check to rear view mirror. If you're not getting busted(whew), takes some time to determine where that noise is coming from. FCC ought to ban them. Sireens are'nt speech, so I've got no issues with that. It's a safety\distraction issue, especially in heavy traffic. More people are distracted and there is more shit on the road to deal with. Did I mention I hate them? A lot?

Can't believe I missed this one but was reminded yesterday - the American Family Insurance commercial. Specifically, the Asian woman at the end who is so happy with herself that she can sing "American Family Insurance".

I doubt we'll see that commercial again after their mass layoffs.

American dream indeed.

I would not admit to being a Steinhafel, let alone pretend to be one.

Does that Olde Golde guy really think that flipping a coin into his jacket's handkerchief pocket is going to attract customers? Everything about that commercial screams "don't trust this sleazeball!"

The Samsung Galaxy commercial mocking the people waiting in line for an Apple product.

Would love to see an alternative ending where an elderly driver plows through the lot of them.

Often I sit around and wonder, "Where do you think Pam Tauscher gets her glasses?" Invariably, I am given the answer during the next television commercial break.
