So... all you people who live north of here suffering through the frigid winter weather think you've got it so bad, eh?

Find yourself wishing you could spend some time down here in sunny Florida do ya?

Well, I'm here to make you feel a little better about things.

Because I'm here to inform you, that if you were here... this is the nauseating piece of smarmy schmaltz you'd be subjected to on a near daily basis:



Are they not the most sugary, nauseating little puke-inducers you've seen??? ShockedShocked

I only say "seen" but not "heard" because I doubt the "band" you see on screen is really the band you're hearing & likely not even a "band" at all.

Unless you count being a band of ridiculous pussies as being a "band".

And those lyrics!!!!! DeadAngry

Honestly, when I dug this up on YT to post it here, was the first time I've ever actually paid any attention to them, though I've probably heard the ad hundreds of times.

And of course, now it makes me even sicker. Sick

So come on now Northerners.... don't you feel a little better already? Embarrassed 

I know I don't. Ermm






Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I can't resist researching this stuff, as awful as it is.

Yeah, according to someone from the Florida Blue Shield website, they're a made-up band.  The singer is Cristina Garcia.  When I do a Wiki search on that name, it comes up as Cuci Amador.  Apparently, one of 'em is a stage name.  Probably the Cuci one.

You can find more stuff by her and her stupid f*cking band on Youtube.  But don't bother.  It's not worth it.

ConfusedDo they have green cards or should they be reported and deported?

That chick who fronts the "band" just makes me want to ralph all over myself.

No wonder people need medical insurance... these BCBS ads keep on making everyone sick!!!!

Could anyone imagine actually singing those ad-agency composed, tripe lyrics as if they were part of an actual song????

My Gawd!!! 

I wonder if the people who did it actually admit to it?

Apparently BCBS is trying to appeal to douchebags.

Ironically, I'll bet none of their insurance plans cover the cost of actual douchebags.

Yes -- I hate this commercial so much!  The stupid "band" with the affected-voiced singer (I hate when hipsters try to sound "jazzy" and nasally), the lyrics that attempt to tell about scenarios that would lead one to need FL BCBS, the overly gleeful audience, the singsongy melody played by idiots with Raffi-on-his-guitar moves...HATE.  

I don't even understand why big health insurance companies advertise on TV.

This morning on the toilet this stupid melody came into my head. I started singing it. "We are here for you.." You know who else was here for me? Dr. Kevorkian and I didn't use him either.

I went to the website, found the link to their PR dept or something close to it. I told them what I thought of the ad then pasted in a link to this thread along with the request to forward it to any appropriate parties.

I hope they did so.

I think I've got a cavity from that ad. I feel bad for the people that had to sing that. From the way they sang it, they seem like they thought it sucked canal water also.
Commercials are awesome, except the annoying ones.

I hate that this one is always on! I hate it even more, because it seems like they were trying to be cute, just like the Aussie Metro commercial. But you see, the Metro one is funny and smart. THIS one is not! And for your viewing pleasure!
