Stop with the honking already!!  It sounds like someone's honking outside of my house, and it forces me to look up at the TV to check to see if it's just this damned Nissan commercial again!
 
Besides, do we really need a horn to tell us our tires are low?  How lame do you think we are?

Thank goodness for this f**king feature.  I mean we wouldn't want people to have to perform the strenuous task of *gasp* using a pressure gauge, would we?

I hate all, car horns and door bells, on tv ads. The proud loyal dog in charge goes nuts  but she is just doing her job. De giornos, and the, we all bundle, ad come to mind.  I must admit . I don't need no horn honkin at me . The wifes Edge will let you know with a convenient light on the dash when a tire is low .  Very nice knowing she might not notice as soon as I would .

Will it honk all night? I'd have to disable that "feature".

I have this little digital gauge that I keep in my glove box.  it takes seconds to use and I don't have to have my horn blasting at me.  Perhaps if it made a sweet little bird chirping sound (no crows, please), I could deal with such a feature.  But I'm no spring chicken.  Blast a horn at me from feet away and I might keel over.

My first car was a secondhand 1973 Plymouth Valiant. It provided me with decent transportation during college. But today's kids wouldn't know how to drive it, even though it had power steering and automatic tranny. They'd either have the tires flat or inflate them until they burst because the horn wouldn't honk! They'd get lost (no GPS), assuming they knew how to start it; they might be punching the cigarette lighter repeatedly thinking it was a START button. The AM radio with its knob and analog display would surely befuddle them. Of course, they wouldn't want it anyway: "No web browser? No phone? All you can do is DRIVE the thing and take a few people with you!"
I keep encountering 3rd graders who sound smarter than most ad writers.

ABC is now playing this every break during college football. Whatever happened to manly sounding horns? 30something hipster needs the car to tell him to check his tires?Thumbs Down

Flashback time! Commercial doorbells are what led me to CIH! At that time there were about 2 or 3 commercials using doorbells. If I wasn't watching the commercial I would check the door. This was very annoying. It didn't take long for me to realise the AdTards had discovered that many of us have a "Pavlovian" reponse to doorbells. Also telephone rings and now car horns. They couldn't care less that it pi**es us off. They can sell the fact that it gets our attention to the customer. I really, really hate them!

Who exactly is honking his precious car?
I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

All cars today have tire pressure monitors (tells you when it is down 25%) but the honker is Nissan telling you you are over-inflating your tires.  My doorbell plays The Star Spangled Banner anyway and not just ding-dong.

This commercial is annoying as all hell. The first time I saw it I though somebody's car alarm was going off. Even without that i's still stupid. Knowing your car's tire pressure is not that hard. here's a protip: Buy a tire pressure guage, 2 bucks at wal-mart. This is also the same series of commercials with the homoerotic gas station commercial implying some sort of quasi gay thing going on between the dope who got his foot runover in a State Farm commercial and the guy who works at the counter.

I hate this f$$#ing commercial. The stupid honking is an obvious we don't care if everyone hates the commercial, we are going to get their attention move; the cell phone companies do it with the exaggerated rings and it pisses me off that I always look up from what I am doing

Of course, that's what they want.
 
The phone-ringing sound in commercials has actually brought me in from outside to see if it was my own phone ringing.  But as soon as I realize it's coming from the TV, I return back outside, not even noticing what the commercial was for.

The ringing doorbells gets worse and worse. A recent one is the absolute worst (so far). I think it is a regional PSA. The theme is "get off your butts and get out in the forest". A family is sitting around hypnotized by their electronic gadgets. The doorbell rings and they don't respond (so far quite believeable). The ringing becomes frantic! The door crashes to the floor exposing a bear, racoon, and a few other wild animals. Now the abducted family is in the back of a windowless white van with the animals. They arrive in the forest where the family is released to discover the wonders they have been missing. More proof of the AdTard LSD connection.
