I’ve had a couple of weeks to ponder some of life’s irritations and true to form, I’m going to write about them.
The first thing that comes to mind is that Nissan commercial that advises “life is 24-7”. DUH! Is this new and revolutionary? Are they implying that new cars from other manufacturers only work part of the day, but the Nissan keeps going and going?… Bah!
The unbelievably greedy guy slurping his single serve tomato soup makes me want to scream! Is anyone that hungry or greedy at work? Forget Campbells – I’m buying store brand from now on just because he irsks me.
That car commercial filmed at breathtaking heights driving on 2 wheels (on the “edge”) scares the hell out of me. I have dreams like that and to see in heavy rotation is just annoying. I don’t need to revisit my bad dreams in primetime.
There’s a commercial showing a dad having a difficult time with his two toddlers. One of them flushes his watch down the toilet. The next scene is a woman at a desk hawking car insurance. She’s supposed to make his life easier. So… if dad had HER company’s car insurance he wouldn’t need to shop for a new watch, I suppose.
The couple about to kiss on the couch is stopped – by tissues. It seems the chick has stuffed her hair with tissues (I get the stuffed parallel folks – I’m not that removed from stuffing my bra) but it’s yucky to see everything in the room deflate, including the boyfriend when her ruse is discovered.
I’d be hurt and confused if I announced my engagement to the man of my dreams and the first reaction of my family was: “He went to Jared”. I’m anti-diamond anyway, but I’ll NEVER darken that store’s doors.
The “banker’s pen” commercials for WAMU need to stop. The premise is that well-to- do white bankers want to fleece the public and the hip AA dude wants to set us free. I don’t feel better about myself or my race because another group is clowned. I can’t get with stereotyping any group. Imagine if the roles were reversed: there would be a crazy public outcry.
There are many more commercials that just get on my nerves, but I can’t think of them right this second. Tell me which commercials you hate.
