Not sure what I hate most about this, the annoying chant, the macho crap, or the man bun.

I've grown to HATE that song. Payola radio specifically 102.9 The Whale and 99.1 WPLR have played it TO DEATH! Why not play some obscure songs for once?

Oh I know. I'm sick of people butchering "Bohemian Rhapsody" too. Seems like every other week some dope is mutilating that song. I think that all started with "Wayne's World." Thanx heaps, Mike Myers. LOL

I couldn't even tell you what song they are singing with them speaking with their mouths full. Disgusting.

This whole commercial is gag-inducing. I hate everything about it. The dumb chanting that builds up to the excessively grandiose (and yet, utterly lame) "pump-up" music.* The obnoxious, smug dullard-athlete machismo. The fact that half the commercial is spent with people singing with food shoved in their mouths like disgusting slobs. That freaking manbun... Everything!

I know it's only January, but this is already probably going to be making into my top 10 worst ads of 2017. Everything about it is just so irritating and cringe-worthy. Yet, somehow, I always have to stop to watch the commercials that disgust me the most, whenever they come on. They're just such train wrecks, I can't look away, despite being thoroughly annoyed the whole time. It's a curse! Do other people have this problem?

*Coincidentally, I saw this ad for the first time not long after making a complaint about the prevalence of these very things in sports commercials a while back. It felt both like a validation of my annoyance with sports ads and the universe giving me the finger.

Anyone else notice the one particular physical trait almost every prominently featured character in the ad shares?

And that the only featured character who didn't share it, was portrayed in the second ad as lying down, asleep?

What exactly is Gatorade trying to suggest here?

Who are they attempting to reach and why?

That's a song by Kanye West, Genius...or so we are told.  Notice that they aren't singing the third verse, and a good thing they aren't.  Might make some folks a bit upset and less likely to buy Gatorade bars.  "Something wrong, I hold my head, M.J. gone, our nigga dead!  I slapped my girl, she called the feds....Fast life, drug life, thug life, rock life."  And it gets worse from there.  Dead

Unfortunately, yes!

Makes me wonder if anybody in the Advertising World ever listens to the songs they use.  If you want to be shocked even more, listen (if you can stand it) to Ariana Grande's little ditty that's used in the cutesy T-Mobile ads  - "Side to Side" is just filthy.ShockedShocked

Got to consider the 'listening community' and remember other things we do for entertainment, such as takes the kids to the zoo. They get much of the same visual effect, lot less lip from the occupants.
