It seems ACE has a rash of commercials out, each altering their jingle at the end. None of them are funny.. Just a commercial trying to be either too clever or too funny or both but being neither.

Yeah, there's another thread about those, but you're right.

They are absolutely hideously annoying and stupid.

These ads annoy the living hell out of me. NOTHING comical about it.
The one I saw this past week for Father's Day just went on and on....and on. I grumbled to myself "Shut the f up!" Angry

I still hear the old jingle in my head - before it became more "P.C." 
"Ace is the place with the helpful hardware man."

They think they re being cute, but who the hell wants a "cute" hardware store???

Hardware stores have traditionally been the milieu of macho guys. Men's men.

Big, hairy, smelly dudes with sweat stained armpits.

Exposed butt cracks and beer guts hanging over dirty work pants.

But apparently their focus group data tells them that Ace Hardware caters to a more upscale, college educated, white collar yuppie demographic, in which the women of the family, wives and daughters, have significant input into the hardware purchases.

So these are the people their new ad campaign is attempting to appeal to. And like anything that involves feminine input, you're going to get an end product that is all cute, pink and fuzzy.

Expect at some point in the future, to see the following marketing tie in....

^  At least they have her picking out paint colors (pink, at that), rather than examining a 12' length of 2"x4" for bowing.

If those color samples are really free, next time I need a small quantity of acrylic paint for some little craft project I'm working on, I think I'll just go down to Ace a get myself a couple of little cans for free.

Thanks, dumbasses!!!

My local Ace is co-joined with a regional drug store. I could not find the item I was looking for or an Ace employee to ask. That is quite normal. I went to a drug store cashier and she called someone on the Ace side who gave her directions to relay to me. Quite impressive. Not!!!
