A trend ?   Any gag inducing commercial that forces over used cliches 
Some examples..: 

YOU GOT THIS !
ITS A WIN WIN ! ( or with Kraft the ENYA WIN WIN ! )
ITS A GAME CHANGER !
NO BRAINER !
NO WORRIES !

( ADD NAUSEATING CLICHE HERE ) I want to know who decided that annoying cliches HAVE to be forced down our throats and every ad agency HAS to go that route !

If anyone cares,  "You got this"  ( I heard it made into a song/chant in one of the newer ads ) and "Game Changer"  are the ones that reallllllly irritate me   (almost as much as a smug millennial using  "So...."  to start every answer to anything asked of them on Shark Tank - but that complaint is for another web page )

Yea that ad has been thrown at us for a few years now in different variations.  I don't blame you!

I am having a brain freeze thinking of other cliches,  probably because they re-use "You got this" and "Game Changer"  so many times,  it makes me want to kick someones a@@ on my TV.   Shoot,  I had one on my mind and it slipped........That's a lose-lose for me/us !

Theme restaurants (Applebee's is the biggest offender but the others are starting to follow suit) calling appetizers apps.

Not commercial related, but crime shows like CSI and law and order starting to call the victim "the vic" to and then over-using the hell out of talking about "the vic" to make it look like they're all hip to the real-world lingo.

Also, on these same crime shows, the bartenders.  You know, the infamous bartenders where the detectives go in and ask them about some random person in New York City and the bartender knows the exact time and date of the last time "the vic" was in, what they were wearing, what their girlfriend's name was, what the weather was like, what was playing on TV, what song was playing, what they were driving, what they ordered, where they work, their address and that they had a fight with one of the suspects............which this bartender ALSO knows all of the same aforementioned details about, because the suspect just happens to frequent this same bar in New York City as well!

The last time "the vic" Ermm visited this bar could have been a year ago, it could have been a decade ago, it could have been 1985.  It doesn't matter - this bartender remembers.  Steel trap.

Yea - NYPD Blue was a big offender of exactly what you are saying here -  I did google one or two of them and found out they are really used,  but before we had Google, and you weren't related to a cop - would you know what the hell  "Do the fives" (paperwork)  meant ?   Or "put a rush on the bus" ( ambulance )
