Thank God, I missed this the first time around.  I've actually not had to endure this for the year or so it's been out.  Where to begin with the hate?  I think everyone, including Howard Stern, has already summed it up nicely.  The plonking piano accompanying the millennial/hipster/Charlie Uniform November Tango sounds like a 13 year old.  I can't even call it singing.  Or speaking.  It's like someone talking making sounds out of their @SS!

All those hard-studying students getting their degree from U of P.  What a bunch of twits and twats!

Fk! This stupid thing is back yet again! Just saw it last night on 'Dancing with the Stars.' (No, I wasn't watching, my relatives watch it...why?!) But as soon as I heard the tone-deaf woman singing, I reached for that mute button. I handled it the first few times I saw it and then started muting it every time last year. Why did they bring this back?!

Thank you CIH for pointing out how the library girl gives the security guard the "don't interrupt me, I'm important & you're not" finger... & how the breathy hipster is rudely pointing out that employers obviously don't have a brain if they don't hire any UofP graduates. This commercial seems to be making a very rude comeback... but all I hear are CIH comments I read from a year ago LOL. Thanks for the levity.

I thought this one was gone, but it just started airing again. I guess the smug hipster with the terrible voice wasn't done bragging and making people who sleep look like lazy bums. Maybe she shouldn't have had 3 kids?? Just an idea.
People are dumb.

Agreed.  Univ Phoenix etal are businesses, not schools.  The ads are there to draw the naive with the "easy" "Team" environment that is, "Best suited for todays business world" Total Joke.

It is! I had to hit the bathroom last night, TV on in the other room and I heard it.
Could not f'ing believe they are polluting the channels with this sh*t again!

One of my favorite covers (in case you've never heard of Tuck Andress).
At about 2:30, you have to remind yourself this is solo guitar.  Smile
 
 
Ditto for his cover of "Man in the Mirror".
 
I'm impressed, what an unusual sound and style. I tweaked the code on your first video because I could not view it.
I would love to see him playing live, in a video. Is that some sort of special 12 string or double neck guitar?
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

 the most brilliant marketing ploy EVAH..convince idiots that 'rips' are cool and sell them jeans with a fraction of wear life that the uncool INTACT jeans have...its a nefarious gimmick but u have to applaud the apparel people for some really amazing snake oil

and yeah, within an hour after posting about this ad not being on..it erupted flatulently on my tv.

On some girls, they look hot. This hipsterette warbler has a nice body but butterface and she looks like her last shower was accompanied by thunder and lightening!

Ah, I see what's going on here! I think they're trying to create a neo-1970s vibe like the old now faded photographs of the singers on vinyl! Sadly it's hipsters it's what they do!

Here she is in all her hipsterette/millennial mediocrity glory. She looks like she could use a shower or bath. Probably warbling in protest that her main man Bernie flamed out. If she gets traction on her career, she'll probably get an agent, lawyer and tart herself up to appeal to the masses.

It's back on commercial rotation. I guess, it really wants to be the worst of 2016 for commercials. And I guess the diploma mill figures now that the hipster's/millennial candidate Hillary the Cow lost the election a lot of them may flock to this diploma mill to get another piece of paper. They are getting tired of living in mommy and daddy's basement. I wouldn't be surprised if Crapper Apple brings back I'm Living the Life of Dreams commercial.
I approve this message.

University of Phoenix Tries to Hush Haters With a Wry Rendition of 'If I Only Had a Brain' Beleaguered school attempts to change the conversationBy Gabriel Beltrone
After a brutal few years, the University of Phoenix is ready to rise from the ashes.

The largely online, for-profit school is trying to turn its struggling business around—while fighting negative perceptions of its programs—with a glossy ad blitz, one of its historic strengths. The centerpiece TV ad in the campaign, from 180LA, repurposes the classic Wizard of Oz tune "If I Only Had a Brain" (originally performed by an incredibly goofy scarecrow). The school's version, "More Than Brains," is a paean to the perseverance and intelligence of its students.

After re-watching the video I'm left with only one thought...
Is this bitch RETARDED?

PLEASE DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN, MAKE THIS STOP!!!!!!! 
MAKE HER GO AWAY!!!!!
The paint is peeling off my walls.
The neighborhood dogs are howling
All my windows are cracked
All the birds in the area are dead
I'm about to tear my ears off!!
I do not think much, I do not think often, but when I do think, I think about sex!!

Ah, that's where you're mistaken !!
Actual talent doesn't matter anymore.  (Evidence: today's top-40 charts!)
 
There are three distinct impressions this leaves:
1)  Voice?  Instantly forgettable. 
2)  She's anemic and probably needs more iron in her diet. 
3)  Speaking of diet, chubby-cheeks could do with fewer Ho-Ho's and Ding-Dongs.
