Today was the first day I saw this commercial and I already hate it. It has some moron in Staples holding one of those hand baskets looking at items on the shelf screaming at each one "Wow! That's a low price" than taking it and putting it in his basket. This happens a few times then we cut to a female worker telling a male coworker that she'll get him a cart

The first time I saw that commercial, I knew it would end up here. Terrible, terrible commercial - an annoyance the first time out of the gate.

Me too. Although I was kind of hoping that instead of saying something stupid like, "I'll get him a cart", that they would say something like, "I'll call security/local mental hospital" - that's where it seems like the "THAT'S A LOW PRICE" idiot belongs...Angry

This is the ideal consumer: forgetting about anything that really matters because of the "great prices." And the ideal employees: enabling this jackass and his irresponsible spending spree. Sadly, I'd imagine there are some people who laughed at it.

I remember the first time I saw this commercial, I thought it was so ridiculous how annoying it is. I came to the conclusion that Staples did this commercial PURELY for its annoyance factor. It is somewhat obvious, but it is so obvious that you might not consider it. There is no other reasonable explanation, as it does not fill in a normal category of event-oriented commercials. It isn't funny, deep, happy, cute. It is just plain annoying. They are annoying you so you'll remember. All it succeeds in doing is only bring the vague memory of Staples from the recesses of my mind and associate it with annoyance.

Good job, Staples. You are now associated with the rest of the things in the world that annoy me.

Also, has anyone else noticed that commercials seem to be getting LOUDER after the passing of Billy Mays?

Yes this commercial is annoying, and stupid, and dumb and 50,000,000 other verbs that can used to describe Hell.

THATS how bad it is! Angry

I saw this one today.  I hate how the employees react with the typical commercial ass kissing response: "I'll get him a cart."  Yeah right! As if they're really looking forward to dealing with some maniac who comes into the store.  I hate how commercials make employees of every company look like total ass kissing morons that actually get a kick out of dealing with stupidity.  Commercials always make it seem like people who work for a living look forward to dealing with idiots.  God I hate commercials!!

Staples also advestises deceptive prices.  In big bold letters they tell you paper is $29.99.  In small letters they tell you yes if you buy two boxes at $29.99 they will send you a rebate, in the form of a card you can only spend in their store.

As Agent_Sometime said, just look at the comments on the youtube page.  There are plenty of fools who think this commercial is rip-roaringly funny.
 
Some people are easily entertained.  Must be the same ones that are easily offended.  Why push the envelope when you can you can make "the best commercial ever" using classic humor, right?  Bah!
 
We live in a society of sheeple.  Sad, sad sheeple with strange senses of humor.
