I know there are lots of people that somehow think this is a "cute" commercial when all they are stupid commercials that are using this stupid overused talking baby prop.

The talking baby thing was old twenty years ago and they are just beyond stupid.

Every time I see these stupid commercials, I literally want to go and tackle and punch the creepy talking baby.

I mean a talking, reasoning, baby???  How utterly idiotic of an idea is this?

Seriously, I would kill it because it is definitely not natural and most likely the spawn of some powerful evil entity like Demogorgon.

STOP with the talking babies NOW!!!  They are creepy NOT cute!!

Agreed this gag got stale 23 years ago after they made "Look Whos Talking." Unfortunately too many ad execs think Kids Say The Darndest Things humor is the pinnacle of comedy and keep on making these damn things.

I thought the original ad was ok. But once they dumped the original baby, it was over.

Can't stand the  Just for Men  down's syndrome bearded baby.  But I have to love the "sliceopotomus" e-trade baby ad.

I agree - there is no commercial currently on TV that is more annoying than the talking E-trade baby. When the commercial begins, I RUN for the remote and either hit the mute button or change the channel completely. A baby talking like a 40 year old? Ridiculous and insulting! I'm happy that my grandchildren don't look and sound like that. You will never have my business, E-trade!

I also hate when they have kids dressed up like adults (little boy in suit, girl in skirt) etc talking and acting like adults.  I think the Gummy Bear commercial does this.

Or little baby with a beard, in suit, driving car.  If there's one commercial I hate more than the E-trade crap, it's that Just For Men one.

I can stand the EBaby ads because its more original and they do a decent job portraying him as "natural". However when I saw the JFM ads it looked like a really cheap and creepy ripoff.
