"for inadequate or not enough lashes"

UGH! I know I have spelling and grammatical mistakes sprinkled all over this site, but I'd be far more careful if I were writing up ad copy for a national advertising campaign. This phrase for Latisse is so damn clunky! What the hell were they thinking?

god, someone else has noticed that? that's a big "DUHHHH" moment right there.

but u know what commercial i love, i think it's for starbuck's new instant coffe and at the end they say "ppl who yell at town meetings can't tell the difference" and u see a big guy stand up and yell "I CAN'T TASTE THE DIFFERNCE....well, i can't!" and i think it's so funny b/c of the tea parties going on now, i can actually see that happening.

HAH, that cracked me up too! Yelling about something so mundane.. LOL.

I saw the new extenze commercial last night. They had their people stopping men in the street, asking them if they'd tried extenze, and what the "result" was. The guys said stuff like "it made me larger," and the "interviewer" said to one of them "You're not embarrassed to say it either, are you?" and the guy was like "No!" But I was thinking, "why not just say 'it made my penis larger'?" instead of, you know, it made "me" larger. That makes it sound like they just got a bit taller. I'd take extenze if it would make me taller tongue.gif Maybe I'd break 6 ft, lol

ok, those UPS commercials where the guy with chin length black hair "draws" on the screen or whatever... what is it that bothers me about that commercial? is it the guy?? i always watch when it comes on but i'm always like "ew", i think b/c the guy is kinda hott but in a really "i used to be a huge NERD, now i'm a FABIO" kinda way
crazyoldcatlady
those kit kat commercials where it's just snapping the chocolate and sounds of people biting into it.

if there are ANY eating noises in a commercial, you're banned for life. i'm looking at you, starburst-lama chew-fest.

I'm madly in love w/ the Travelers (Insurance?) commercial w/ the blonde puppy & his beloved bone. 1st he burries it in the backyard, but then sits at the window vigilantly keeping guard. next he takes it to a bank where they lock it up in a big strong vault but he has bad dreams of opening the box again & it being gone.
Finally he gets the red umbrella insurance & can leave it out in the open by his doggy bed & go out & about, secure in knowing it will be there whenever he returns.
the music is really what makes it- the heart dragging blues ' ohh trouble trouble trouble trouble' that makes you just so SAD for little puppy.. I'm not going to switch to travelers but give them high points for super cutness.

the latiss eye crap commerical however- did anyone else notice how much of a BITCH brook shields looks like in it?
when she first enters the room & is scoping things out, she eyeballs a group of friends up & down like ' ha. I can do better than that.' and then later when she's dancing w/ that guy & she nearly breaks his arm whipping it back in a cha-cha type move?
every time I see it I think " remember not to EVER invite her to any parties."

There's also the Ray Lamontagne "Trouble" song which is great.
Brooke Shields will never be invited to my parties. She's been annoying the shit out of me.

Very sick of the damn Clear commericals. They're on Hulu all the freaking time!! Especially the cupcake one!

I love that starburst llama commercial!! biggrin.gif But I do hate it when people make noises when they eat.
Speaking of noises, I CAN'T STAND IT when they amplify kissing sounds on tv shows/movies. NOBODY KISSES THAT LOUD!
kari
Jsmith.....YES! Ugh, I despise kissing sounds in movies, tv, etc. SO disgusting.

I just saw that Extenze commercial & laughed my ass off. It's just so ridiculous.

Freckle, I know! I love that commercial with the dog and the bone.
rogue
Ugh, that stupid "It's cool like that" Tide commercial! I was watching a show on my lunch hour and they played it practically every since commercial break! That's all he says the whole commercial! And now it's stuck in my head! Bah!

/end rant.
snow white
the fresh choice salad commercial, or something, where they open the bag of salad and it makes *music*, music of freshness! that is totally a 12 dollar commercial. i'm kind of insulted b/c even i know i could have made a better commercial than that.
jsmith
How about that popcorn commercial, where the guy takes a stick of butter out of the fridge and starts to eat it. EW. That commercial really squicks me out. Does anybody actually do that, eat a stick of butter?
auralpoison
That Dita Von Teese ad is giving me a complex.
hellotampon
The ad where the pigs eat ham and the one where the idiot drives his car into a garage pretending to play a video both suck.
jsmith
This commercial kills me, it's so funny!
jsmith
Holy. Hell.
"What's a thirteen letter word meaning marriage proposal?"
"I dunno"
"He-Went-to-Jared!"

OMFG, shut the hell up. What a fruit cake.
hellotampon
Yeah, so cheesy and annoying. Like they're making an honest effort to get people to replace the phrase "I got engaged" to "he went to jared" just like people say kleenex instead of tissue.

The Rebok commercials for the shoes that supposedly tone your butt are appalling.
candycane_girl
Those fucking GAP "holiday" ads. Do they try to be as annoying as possible?
Babsalicious
Those freaking scare tactic bad man breaks down the door ads. And its always a woman victimized. Ugh.

Has anyone seen the new Sarah Haskins? Awesome!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ7nBugejXs

I also can stand the pothole ad with the Britney Spears voice. Must.hit.mute.everytime.

Yeah. Why don't they just come out and say what they mean? "Buy one of our systems or else TEH SCARY RAPIST WILL RAPE YOU!"
jsmith
Y'all know that on-the-go toothbrush commercial where the girl spots this hottie, runs off to brush her teeth with her nifty little toothbrush, then goes back to smooch the hottie? What's the name of the product?
pollystyrene
Caribou Coffee's first ever commercial= EPIC FAIL. So creepy.
candycane_girl
lol, actually I find it kind of funny.

I've very annoyed at a commercial for some kind of Bounce bar thing that you stick in the dryer instead of using sheets every time. The woman says that it's one last thing she has to think about so she can spend more time "thinking about my boys and what they're up to!" Yes because you need to keep an eye on your kids 24/7!!
coffeebean
Agreed candy...also it also makes me wonder how much time does she really spend thinking about her bounce sheets that she now has soooo much more time to think about he family. Like really? I understand that we all can forgot to put in a bounce sheet sometimes but is it really the end of the world. Gah I hate that one too.
candycane_girl
I know! That's what I don't understand. I mean, how much thought does it take? You're putting a laundry sheet in the dryer, not cooking a gourmet meal.
jsmith
Seems like a lot of commercials make the most simple, mindless tasks look unbearably difficult.
Like, cutting up an onion.. washing your windshield... peeling a carrot...
Come on now.
jsmith
Ooooo, I'm sick of those jitterbug commercials with the talking phones.
hellotampon
Those dance commercials; they're either for Old Navy or Gap, and it's all these fresh-faced young douchebags dancing... uggh. And I LOATHE the one with the little kids. It's supposed to be cute and sassy, but they're brats. They sing about not wearing their old clothes anymore. And they screech, "How CUTE are these boots?!" Um, puke. 6 year olds running around being vapid and materialistic is just sooooooo precious.

the corollary: the old navy talking mannequins. *sigh*. i don't even have the energy to give a proper rant about how inane that whole thing is.
jsmith
But Y'ALL, come on now, where would we be if we didn't have GAP and Old Navy to tell us what's fashionable! wink.gif
hellotampon
I just noticed they chant "Hey Kwanzaa! Hey Solstice!" Pandering to everyone while appealing to no one.
crazyoldcatlady
must... fall... into... the... gap....

*wanders out zombie-eyed*
jsmith
That commercial for viagra where the guy is walking around, and his reflection in the store window is asking him if he's "talked to the doctor about our problem."
Okay. If your reflection is talking to you, and referring to you in the plural form, you need to have your head checked. The head on your NECK, that is.
chachaheels
jsmith, your avatar is hypnotizing me.....

There's an anti-abortion commercial (or set of commercials) currently showing up on Canadian TV, sponsored by a group called
"Alliance for Life". Seriously disgusting and very, very silly ads.

Anyway, CandyCaneGirl asked me who the sponsor was...that's their name.
kari
Oh my goodness, those Old Navy mannequin commercials are so annoying!

I can't remember if I have mentioned this in here or not, but does anyone else have Shane & Co jewelers where they live? They run their stupid radio commercials constantly. I am over it. Sometimes I can flip station to station & the ads will be on more than one at a time. The announcer, it's always the same dude, telling men to "get her what she deserves" or some BS. UGH.

Yes, Old Navy commericals suck.

I have Shane ads where I live, and they suck almost as bad as the Kay Jewelers ads on tv. I hate the guys voice.

The Wal-mart ads are pissing me off lately.
hellotampon
That ad for a Victoria's Secret pushup bra enrages me. I HATE that "baby, baby, baby" chant. I'm not sure why I find it so irritating but I do.

And I'm also hating the seasonal jewelry ads. Enough already. And by the way, the jewelry is always really uggo.
enfermera
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...

HEY GUYS DID YOU KNOW THAT MIRACLE WHIP IS LIKE THE CHUCK NORRIS OF CONDIMENTS OMFG!!!!!!!!!

Those cool hipster people are Miracle Whip, and they will not back down.

wtf?
Babsalicious
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.
jsmith
Dammit, Bailey's is doing those blasted singing-lips-up-close commercials again.
pollystyrene
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.

enfermera
anyone seen those cell phone commercials where the girl puts the phone down, and her mouth comes off of her face to stay by the phone and keep talking? grosses me the freak out.
pollystyrene
cross-post, enfermera!
jsmith
Yeah, those commercials actually creep me out
kittenb
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.
auntilulu
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!!!!!
Divala
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.
