AngryTrying to put my finger on what peeves me the most - the hair gelled Townshend,  the smirk on the daddy face with the steaming hot coffee who allows the noise to get to levels where he had to wear noise cancelling headphones because he craps out money for anything little Dexter wants,  or the weird inclusion of Ave Maria in the ad.....  Creeps me out, these yuppies

I absolutely HATE this commercial. 
Just my personal 2 cents on this - using a song that is widely used in many funerals is just a sh*t idea! So thanks Amazon for that wonderful flashback. A--holes!

I saw this commercial today and thought...Confused

It's all too techno-bizarre for me to understand.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

...this made me think, you could take almost every annoying f'ing tune from 99.9% of todays ads and just edit them into this clip. 

Which ALSO made me think of another "Most hated commercial" (different post), that God awful U.of Phoenix ad / that wussy "More Than Brains" tune.


Ok...so how is he playing a piano with a guitar? And 'wow, he has a high voice." 
I know..but you get the point. lol!

I couldn't agree more...and what's worse? The first thing I thought of were all of the school shootings. I REALLY don't feel good admitting those horrors crept back in the mind - and yes, the trigger was 'Ava Maria', which indeed is used in many funerals...and a few very, very ugly horror scenes in some very disturbing movies.

Add me to that thought, or thoughts....funerals and Christmas eve Mass....Anything but what's being shown here.  Just terrible that it gets by ad agencies "big shots"  that approve this sh#t

The guy who should be "ka-bonging" her is down on the couch drinking coffee and smirking....probably had Alexa bring up his favorite high school cheerleader web sites thinking she won't be up for a while...

I don't like how Prime makes me feel inferior for not using their service!  Doesn't Amazon own everything now?

Freaking Andy Williams?


Why not use the original?  Are they going for the 80 year old women out there?  Angry

Let me just add before Thor tells me Sinatra did the song in 1927...It's the internet!  Don't believe everything you read!
