Yeah, you aren't kidding. Nothing can make my eyes well up like an ASPCA commercial. Not even those commercials with starving children who have no parents.
Yes, I do wonder if I'm something of a misanthrope.

It's for a good cause and all, but every ASPCA commercial is depressing as hell.

The voice in the Hershey's bliss chocolates makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Blecch.

And I'm sorry but eating crappy hershey's chocolate is not the sensual experience they act like it is. I'm when most people eat it they are clothed, and not being molested by brown satin ribbons.

Ha! I frequently (enough) will say, "If it comes from Jared, the answer is 'No!'"

I did see a jewlery ad that made me laugh the other day. This guy is reading a poem that he wrote for his woman, all about why he loves her, what he feels when she is around, etc. Then the VO said, "Because you're not that guy, [insert name of jewlery company] is here." The company was Heltzberg or something like that.

Yeah Kay, Jared, and Tom Shane companies are all forbidden in my house....

I'm so frigging sick of the damn lash ad with Brooke Shields. Doesn't she have enough $$$ shelling toothpaste?

I'm also over the whole AT&T/Verizon ads. I like Luke Wilson, but I'm just sick of these stupid "map" fights and all.

It's because of that ad, and their dumb little "every kiss begins with K" jingle, that I have forbidden my boyfriend from shopping for rings from there - and Jared.

Are you kidding? I was going to post about that a few days ago but I couldn't remember who it was for! The cherry on top is that that little pendant is supposed to look like a hug, and they're hugging . . . gag!!!!!

I know that it is almost pointless to bitch about jewelry ads BUT! the Kay ad where the woman is scared of the thunderstorm makes me absolutely STABBY! "I'm right here. And I always will be." Pardon me. I have to vomit now.

I hate that commercial, I think it's for U.S. Cellular, where they have people saying what they want in a cell phone company and the woman with the mannequin arm and leg in her hands says, "I want one that doesn't cost me one of these and one of these"...[holds up the arm and leg]..."an arm and a leg".

Um, yeah. I get it. All you needed to do was make the visual joke and you totally killed what little cleverness there was in it by being completely redundant and treating the viewers like we're idiots that needed to have it explained to us.

I think cell phone companies have made it their mission to sell things to us through annoyance. Those commercials over the summer with the thumbs with the faces (or maybe just mouths) and the one above and the other ones they're playing now where someone's talking on the phone and they take the phones away from their face and their lips go with it, so they can set the phone down somewhere with just the lips and they continue talking and the mouthless person (so far I've only seen women in the commercials- hmmmm dry.gif ) walks off somewhere else.

The ad for Flirty Girl Fitness. I mean effing really? Ugh

Also that dumbass ad for Light and Fit yogurt where the girl rips off the tab and sucks it down in the middle of the aisle. Annoying.

ditto on those FREAKIN gap ads. they get immediately muted. cheerleaders, really? and hateful little bratty privileged girls? sign me up, PLEASE.

the one i noticed to be particularly annoying yesterday was brooke shields (again) shilling toothpaste. "i like to eat healthy foods [sticks a stalk of celery in her mouth], but i heard some foods are acidic and can be hard on your teeth!" and it shows a big bowl, like a punch bowl, of sliced citrus fruits. you eat THAT much citrus, brooke? and really, you "heard" that. i don't know. it just strikes me as horribly, horribly stupid. it makes her look like such an airhead...
