I went looking for the "...is he still awake?..." commercial to add to the VERY long-running KAY Thread, just this A.M. One can only find a 'watered-down' version of it - without the IDIOTIC "...is he still awake?..." question. So I didn't bring THAT thread back to life.

DeadWe have a local ad here for a Big Jewelry Store about to open. Ok, now, Southwest Florida has been hit hard by the recession. Weddings on every weekend are a thing of the past, and who can afford to buy jewelry anyway? Maybe 1% of the population? yah, and just keep jacking up the price of gold and try to sell rings/watches/necklaces,,,ect. { I was never into jewelry anyway, but one of my X's was, and she declared bankruptcy.

Confused AND The never ending ads for "1/2 price off of retail" nonsense. Gee, I wonder how much they jack up the price of any jewelry item to make it seem as if it's actually worth 2000.00? then they get u all excited when they offer it for $1000.00 [OMG OMG !!! I just saved a whole 1000.00 !!!,,{yah,,,right} lets just start selling new lambrogini's for One Million dollars and discount them to $250,000,,,,,NOW YOU HAVE SAVED A WHOLE $750,000 !!!!  WOW...now I can buy ten houses with all that imaginary money I just saved !!!!Cool

I don't know- the one with the deaf chick is kind of cool. Maybe it's just because I like the idea of the ckick being deaf. You'd never have to worry about her thinking she heard something you never said while you were mumbling to yourself, you could blast the game as loud as you like, and she would be less inclined to yell at you. Life would be kind of cool that way.

The one with the deaf girl is really annoying, because it's so obvious they are trying to play on our emotions. I mean, who can get mad at a deaf girl. That would be politically incorrect. So, it gives the commercial a warm, fuzzy feel that you would feel bad hating because of the deaf girl.

The other ones suck as well. Why do women get so emotional over a damn rock? Especially since alot of the diamonds have "blood" on them.

You also see alot of holiday car commercials this time of year. Usually the high end ones like Lexus and BMW. You know, the ones with the car parked in the driveway with a big red bow on top. Aren't we, as a country, in debt enough? Who in the hell can afford an expensive piece of jewelry or a new Lexus?

Well, I'd like it if a guy gave me a pair of authentic samurai swords.
Or anyone for that matter.
Samurai swords... made in the traditional way. Or, even better, samurai swords owned by an actual samurai like thousands of years ago. Heart

Actually my husband and I were screaming about this commercial last night. How come the skinny, "normal" chicks get the ring or the necklace but the deaf chick gets an Fing watch?! So what because she's deaf she's not good enough for a Christmastime proposal? Is she his sister? WTF?:-P

Hmm... If it's 300 dollars for a sword, it's probably not very authentic... And a five body sword would probably cost TONS of money. Like,a lot. And I don't think anyone could get those sort of swords but a museum or something...

But they are so gorgeous and well made, those authenticly made samurai swords.

It's because they broke tradition and didn't go with the "dumb guy" stereotype. Any smart guy knows you don't propose on Christmas. In every court show I have seen, if the guy gives the girl the ring on Christmas (or her birthday, etc.) it's considered a "gift" not a "contract" as it is most any other time. If things go in the sh*tter and you proposed on Christmas- say bye bye to that ring.
 
I love my wife and I've always trusted her to follow through on things, but I proposed on a random Tuesday.

Oh GOD I hate those. The Lexus one from a few years ago was the worst. It had some snooty teenage bitch, and her parents sit her down and the dad says "We got you a CD player for Christmas." and the look on her snotty rich bitch mug is like she's thinking "Yeah, great. Like I don't already have five CD palayers you assholes!"
 
Then they go outside and she's happy because her parents bought an overpriced Toyota for her. I wanted to punch her in the ovaries. Or better yet, punch her mom in the ovaries so hard that she would have a retroactive miscarriage and the snooty teenageer would die right there in the driveway. That would be a happy Christmas for me.

As (an admittedly atypical, commitment-phobic) female, I've never understood other women getting "so emotional over a damn rock" either. I tend to get emotional over practical things ... like a set of new tires with superb, all-weather traction. Smile

Or Dir en grey tickets. Now, that would make me emotional. Or perhaps a new jacket and a new operating system
Because I need that.
Or a new computer.... Or a bunny. Yes, those things would make me happy

THough the commercial with the fellow and the deaf chick made me go AWWWWWWWWWWW uncontrollably.
