This takes the cake for the most annoying commercial!

We have the rapid fire response of owners talking about Gunderman Group and how its growing repeatedly.

Then we have the ultra annoying repitition of the word "awesome" again and again until you can't take it anymore!

Honestly why the @#$% would they use this repetitive crap on their commercials? It does nothing but annoy people! Argh!

Another f*cking overuse of the word awesome.  Somebody punch the blonde chick in the face.  That would be awesome!

Why does the UPS delivery guy have an earpiece?
Are UPS drivers encouraged to listen to their iPods instead of paying attention to traffic? Is THAT the message UPS wants to send?

Apparently the Gunderman Group is hawking skateboards.
I guarantee you nobody in that warehouse boardboard demographic knows the first thing about skateboards. Logistics or not, Gunderman will fail.

Awesome.

Gunderman sells SKATEBOARDS!? Are you kidding me!? I thought they were an investment group! What a failure of advertising! Would it killed them to at least uh....SHOW YOUR DAMN PRODUCT?

I assume Gunderman in a fiction, in the way that most TV commercials go out of their way to PhotoShop over any visible trademarks, logos, etc.. belonging to others. (As if they'd get sued for showing a Sony TV in the background of some shampoo commercial, or whatever..)

I say "skateboards" because they appear prominently in the ad. First during the initial boardroom roundtable (the skateboard is leaning against a back wall), then again in the background when the UPS driver is dropping off packages to Gunderman.

Doh! How did I not realize that!

Good eye! At least someone was paying attention to the details to the ad. I couldn't make it past the irritation of this ad to notice. Sorry, I was mad.

As you can see I abhor repitition!

I thought Gunderman Group is a fictional company, and was assuming the skateboard was one of the employee's mode of transportation to work.  They look young enough to be skaters.

Yes… The Blunderman Group is beyond annoying. Makes me want to call Fed-Ex, USPS or anyone before UPS. Dead

They put the skateboard in there to make sure we know that they're hipsters, as if we wouldn't have known otherwise.

Who put this stupid & cheap commercial together and then paid for it to be run in every 5 minute spot?  The only thing it does is permeate Gunderman Group in my head and make me think UPS is cheap!  I do like the FedX commercial where the guy is running his business out of his garage and the wife opens it up by remote, now that is funny.  Gunderman Group/UPS UGH!!

Maybe the skateboards are the employee's mode of transportation AT work.  You know, skating through the halls, through the cafeteria line, into an empty elevator shaft, that sort of thing...  LOL

Maybe they're some sorta young, hip startup company, but there's only one guy in the ad who doesn't look like he belongs behind the counter at Starbuck's.  He must be Gunderman.

Did a web search, and there's a Gunderson Group law firm.  Wonder if they have a skateboard on their 'trophy' wall with a plaque that says "One of our Top Ten revenue producers!" ?

Awesome.

The earpiece is a radio to keep in touch with the base so he can keep on top of last minute changes and pick ups.

'Assume' = "makes an ASS out of U and ME"
So, ASSUME nothing about skateboards.
I was near the side door of the White House not too long back - a kid in khakis (casual dress for work) on a skateboard zipped past me, waved at the armed guards (who waved back). The kid kick-stopped and flipped his skateboard under his arm, at the door, and walked right in.

This commercial is a travesty.

A good reason to outlaw the annoying word "Awesome"
