Not sure if there's already a thread on this one, but couldn't find it so....sorry if there is.
 
I don't know about all of you, but when I use mouthwash, I find that there's this unavoidable urge to open my eyes so wide they nearly pop right out of my skull, puff my cheeks out to an unnatural width so I look precisely like a puffer fish, then move them in and out with extreme vigor so anyone who happened to be watching in on me would not be confused about what I was doing.  You know, as if to say to everyone "I'm swishing something in my mouth."  I then contort my lips from left to right and make ridiculous faces all the while puffing my cheeks in and out to clarify the "swishing" of liquid in my mouth (don't forget to keep the unblinking eyes open as WIDE as possible).  Last but not least, I spit the listerine out by bending way over, then snap my head back up to look in the camera---er, i mean mirror, and flash a big white toothy smile and go "ahhhh."
Morning and night.  It's exhausting, really.

LOLLOLLOL   Great observation.   I am convinced there is NO Listerine in their mouths to begin with.   That stuff BURNS like hell!  They'd never be able to do take after take with a mouthful of that stuff.  I am not sure if it's Listerine but one mouthwash company says you need to use it at night because when you sleep, your mouth dries up and that's what makes for bad "morning breath".   But the ALCOHOL in Listerine, etc., actually CAUSES your mouth to dry up and give you stank breff.   You can't win!  Dead

There may have been a thread at the old board about this, I seem to remember venting about it at some point.

I completely agree, I can't stand the exaggerated facial expressions these people make. The odd bug eyed lady with the curly hair, the BJ face the asian guy makes after spitting the Listerine out. I don't use mouthwash because of the burn, the only times I do is when it's the kid stuff LOL

HAHA GOD I hate that guy at the end.
His weird bug eyed "HOOooo!" exhale with that face, which you pin pointed perfectly.
I imitate that to my wife when that stupid ad comes on. She gets mad heh.

I hate closeup bizarre facial expressions in commercials; I'm always embarrassed for the actors. I'd never agree to look like a complete moron on screen.
 
Plus, all this commercial does is reinforce the reality that Listerine is extremely painful to use.  I won't, in fact.  I use ACT; same effect, absolutely no discomfort.

Someone beat me to it! I was going to post about this ad too. My reasons for disliking it are the same as you all, which is that the people going " ahhhhhh!" and flashing their impossibly perfect, white teeth bothers me. Who in the hell actually does that anyway?

These are just like that overacting Obama looking jackass in the Extra sugar free gum commercials dancing around and chewing his gum like a cow chewing on it's cud. it's like the director of these commercials think we the viewers are so god damn stupid we can't tell somebody's chewing gum or  using mouthwash unless they ham the hell out of it.

Also where does beiung a guy who directs health product commercials fit in the heirarchy of things? Obviously he's far below Steven Spielberg but where exactly is he in the pecking order? Is he above the guy who directs amateur scheiss porns or below him?

And does he wear that zany get-up with the kneehigh boots, the beret, scarf, and the cheesy German accent?

I wonder what the alcoholic % of Listerine is...and is it enough to make one drunk. The people in the Listerine ad look like they drank the entire bottle.

I don't know about that but I do know for a fact that you can have some serious legal problems if you get pulled over and have to do a breathalizer and you've swigged Listerine recently.  Although I did date a lawyer once and I asked him about it...he confirmed that Listerine will cause your breathalizer test to skyrocket but he also said that the numbers would be SO HIGH that it would clearly be a non-drunk factor (he pretty much told me that it would be physically obvious if you were as drunk as the breathalizer rating, or something like that.)  He also told me that you can get a blood alcohol test or another breathalizer at the police station (I think) and by then the numbers would have leveled off (but that doesn't hide being truly drunk, because THOSE numbers would stay high...a mouth rinse would wash away after a little while but over the limit drunkeness would not.)

Sorry that was so cryptic.  He often babble a lot and was hard to follow, so I tuned him out a lot.  LOL

Yeah, you can get drunk on mouthwash. There was once an episode of the show "Intervention" where a woman was drinking the stuff constantly, but other than the fact that it tastes bad, it's got other stuff in it that make it even worse for you than consumable liquor.

I hate those commercials too. It's obvious they have nothing in their mouths - similar to the commercials where people are drinking a can of something - it's obvious that there is nothing in them and they are pretending to drink and swallow.

I have always hated these commercials because the entire premise is keeping the stuff in your mouth so as to recieve the full benefit, and it's so obvious they have nothing in thier mouths but puffy cheeks.

The Listerine commercial that starts with the guy letting out a completely-unnecessary tonsil-baring yawn drives me NUTS, as well!

Last I heard about 21.7%. It's very popular with hobos who play George Thorogood songs on the harmonica in boxcars.

You know what really gets me about this commercial, for whatever reason?  "So rinse under the stars!"

What the hell does that even mean?  How about rinsing under the ceiling in my bathroom?

Oh, how I ever agree!  But not so much the "seeing down the throat."  Rather, I can't stand it when people yawn LOUDLY multiple times.  No matter how bad you have the yawn, the audible portion of a yawn IS controllable, it just is (I'm not talking the air intake and release, but rather when a loud groan is included.)  It wouldn't irritate me so bad if it WASN'T controllable, but because it is, it just seems rude.

I hate ythose f**king ads. It looks like they chose the people in those ads based on how odd their mouths look.
 
Every one of them has some weird characteristic about their mouth which they exaggerate even more while swishing the mouthwash around or right after spitting it out, which of course they don't show.
 
I wish they'd show that.
 
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Anyway, I also hate the other mouthwash commercial. I forgot what it's for, but the girl says "I'm testing to see if this really works!" and the next day rubs her teeth and says "Hear that? It's squeaky clean!" Because everybody rubs their teeth for no reason.
