Inappropriate commercial topic airings is one commercial fad I hate. I was eating a sausage biscuit, hash browns, and mozzarella cheese sticks and drinking a cherry ICEE, and drinking Nestle Pure Life water at Burger King at roughly 7:30 in the morning when a commercial for LAXATIVES came on. Gross, just as I am eating! I thought, disgusted. So, what commercial fad do you hate immensely?

ConfusedDo you really think this is in the correct forum, rather than 'Off Topic' since you have no particular named product.
And what are you doing with an ICEE and Pure Life Water in BK?
Laxatives? What a GREAT idea to advertise! Starting tomorrow, remember 'A laxative a day keeps the proctologist away' and be sure to take that laxative about 30 minutes before you get to Burger King and start all that slurping and drinking and eating. Add raisin, prune, & green banana oatmeal to your diet to offset the manner you are currently double-stacking up on the starches, a tiny bit of protein, and fried & emulsified trams fats and milk fats.
Yum.
Once again, what's that sausage really made of?
Let's be sure and make a break for an open bathroom stall - the one that has the sign on the door which reads, 'flush hard - it's a long way to the kitchen'

Pawolf, I said that airing a commercial for laxatives in the morning when people are eating breakfast is a bad commercial fad. It is not Off Topic. The product was for Senokot.

1. ANY commercial involving singing and/or dancing.

2. Any commercial making some poor unfortunate guy look like an idiot because he happens to have been born a man.

3. Any commercial starring the song Holiday Road.  This is a new one.

4. Any of the countless NFL Football is Family commercials.  Like the one with the fkn moron (see #2) with the Raiders shirt on at a family gathering of KC fans.  Anyone who's so into football that it affects family relations really needs to reexamine their life's choices.

5. OMGIGOTAFKNCARFORCHRISTMAS!!!! commercials.

6. "Sensitive topics" commercials like laxative commercials, boner pill commercials, and tampon commercials.

7. Commercials with made up words.  Smelfy, framily, etc...

8. Food commercials that make fast food look like gourmet food, when in reality it's a thin patty slapped on a flattened bun with a shot of off colored ketchup and a "pickle".

9. Commercials with screaming children.  My ears instantly start bleeding.

Also

10. Commercials.  I just hate commercials in general.  Rarely do I see one that doesn't make me want to kill my TV.

12. Political commercials, ether side. Angry

13. Coping with 20 or more minutes of commercials per hour. Dead

11 years ago I got fed up and "cut the cord" after seeing one of those "sensitive topic" commercials aired during a children's show. Shocked

Since they don't care what commercials are tossed in your face I decided to quit paying $ 65.00 a month and cancelled my subscription. I decided to get my shows in a a different manner. 

Today whenever watching a show or movie I'm one that's available on home video. no commercials, no shows that feature a political sermon in each show, and the best thing is after I finish watching a show I get to keep it! Big smile
A recent poll says all the bad boys and girls would prefer getting lumps of coal from Santa Claus instead of a Pay-TV subscription!

Missing limbs.  There are many (such commercials, I mean).  The other day, I watched a St. Jude's commercial followed immediately by some commercial featuring both a pooch and a pony using prosthetic devices.
 
Aha!  Here's the latter:

Regulus, in regards to your hated number 11, I remember watching with my then 8 year old sister, Hard Hat Harry, a Children's TV show, and during a commercial break, an ad asking,"Do you want to have hot sex?" Suddenly came on. I was beyond shocked. :O Kids are watching a CHILDREN'S TV SHOW for Godsakes! What are you doing airing such an adult commercial? Luckily my sister had left by the time this inappropriate timed commercial aired.

Talking with the mouth full of food, be it dog or human, it annoys me to no end. Can't we at least have ONE STINKING AD without some numbskull speaking with their mouth full of food? It's stupid, unprofessional, and disgusting. I'm sick of it!

Expensive car ads aimed at kids or "the kid in you," or the car has a bow or is under the tree, etc. Kids with their jaws hanging watching a stupid car going down the street.

Ads that have to air twice in every break, like the DQ ad with the ugly nerd who wears his black hat stupidly.

One of my favorites too.

I used to sub at a local high school where one of the boy's P.E. teachers/football coaches used to jokingly call the kids "Dumass" (doo-mahs) when they'd do something boneheaded.

I don't know why root beer commercials are so funny, but this Mug root beer commercial is one of my all time favorites:



Something about the goofy look on the kid's face or something.

"The Secret"!

For quite a while now, ad producers have been disclosing "the secret", or, "the trick".

"Buy this useless overpriced thing from us. It will do this and that! The secret is: BLAH BLAH whatever it is."

There are at least six dozen ads on late late early cable TV that follow this format. All being read by the same two or three copy readers. Most ending with the hated words: CALL NOW!!!

its gonna sound awful but...
its just so OBVIOUS that the 'rainbow coalition' of casting with all the possible races including the handicapped and downs syndrome kid..if this were GENUINE caring it would be laudable, but it saves WAL-MART and other abusers of commerce from shooting racial SPECIFIC ads and they damn well WOULD if they could..beer and car dealers still do it
all for racial harmony..just not FAUX harmony

I want to point out my (fairly) intense hatred of the Rainbow Coalition as well.  Mixed race couples, biracial children, mom's black, dad's white, mom's white, dad's black, kids are of course mixed, sometimes obviously adopted children of other races in the family (usually Asian), the white chicks with Asian guys, as opposed to the old cliche of white men with their mail-order brides from Asian countries, and the whole gang getting together always features one black.  Sick of Commercial Land on TV letting us know that segregation is a thing of the past (rightly so) and that people are choosing to be involved with people of other races on TV now.  We know that.  We get it.  Stop it already!

I usually don't know who the hell those people are and of course don't care because I've never heard of them and by the looks of them, don't really want to.

Following up on my earlier post, in today's snail mail was a very official-looking (and yet totally fake) "overnight envelope" with some offer from Comcast.
 
Sort of like this one:  Closest I could find online.
 
 
The one I received in the mail was much more elaborate, however:
 
It has fake "Expedite" stickers (not even real stickers, just the envelope printed to look like a sticker.)
It has fake weight limit restrictions printed on the back ("Weight limit: 3.2 Ounces")
--which also checks the box for arbitrary precision.
It has a fake checkmark in the fake "RUSH" box made to look like it was hand-written.
And it claims to come from their "Preferred Customer Division"..(which can't possibly exist),
..from an "L. Schweber"  (12th cousin, 18 times removed from Mrs. Butterworth, herself a fictional character, but I digress...)
 
--At least the effort checks the box for "personal service".  (Yawn..)
 
Inside of course, is just the usual Comcast come-ons.
 
Now here's a question:
WHY would I trust anything inside, if I already know the envelope the offer arrived in is totally made-up bullsh*t?  (Sort of like: "We'll be there between Noon and 5PM to install your cable.)

Mail such as that just drives me up the wall.
 
One of my previous jobs was at a mail processing facility, and one of the things I did was sort incoming mail by class.  I learned to identify "junk" mail by looking at the postage class and if it was "standard", then I could safely assume that it was junk.  I do that with my mail even now.

This!  There's a current Walmart Christmas commercial that uses a really obnoxious hip hop song to show a bunch of kids getting overly excited about gifts.  Every time I hear it come on, I want to rip my ears off.

The holiday season is a rough one for commercial haters.
