Greeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaat, just when you thought, Christmas music couldn't get any worse, USPS does a bad rendition of 12 days of Christmas! IT IS HORRIBLE, I HATE OFFKEY SINGING! It doesn't make any sense and it is stupid! I'll see if I can find a video of this abomination!

I barely remember the lyrics, one was "And one giant blow up snowman that kinda creeps me out" and another was "four lightning bolts" I think it's supposed to represent what they face when they deliver packages. However it's all over the place, so you lose the meaning.

It's a horrible song to begin with...only surpassed in awfulness by 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.  Both relentless and repetitive.  I've said it before and I'll say it again.

I wouldn't expect anything less from our government. What a waste of tax dollars or China's money for this sh*t? It's like reviving a person who's been dead for six months. The USPS bleeds money. And this commercial sucks. If I was doing the commercial I have them going postal.
I approve this message.

Ugggggghh !!! I really wish commercials would stop trying to be funny or witty. Nothing is more painful for an audience to sit through than something that tries way too hard to be funny and fails. Bad singing is not, never was, and never will be funny. Hopefully these people all find a great big lump of reindeer dookie in their stockings.

I thought this ad was kind of silly. It aired on the radio as well. Believe they mentioned "five fruitcakes" that weigh about 70 pounds - what the heck?   
Sick and tired of Charter Spectrum (and Flo!)

The one I hate the most is "five boxes addressed by toddlers, that's a quuuuuuuuuuuuuue" WTF? This takes the commercial from plain unbearable to sh*tastic!y craptacular!

Ugh!

I don't even understand half of what they're singing about.

Melancholy in their cries
Devoid of all the passion
The human spirit cannot die"

I don't think it's a bad commercial.   Better than the Pennsylvania lottery ones.  
And for the record, the USPS gets VERY little taxpayer money, and it certainly isn't used for their advertising.  :)

Now that it's the new year, the tone-deaf mail carriers are singing "Auld Lang Returns." A-derp-dee-derrrrrrr Ermm

Is this going to be like "Party City," where they do a new irritating ad for every holiday? *shudder* This reminds me of that stupid Burger King breakfast campaign a few years back with the singing and marching morons. Thanx a lot, USPS, for bringing back those horrific memories. Angry

I guess the USPS forgot the term "going postal" referred to disgruntled postal workers who get angry.

So I don't think it was a good idea to show a commercial with postal workers singing about things that make them go crazy.

USPS must have known I was looking at this thread, as soon as I clicked on it, low and behold the commercial came on. 

First time I heard this new version, I had this "WTF" look on my face.  Hit mute instantly this time, it was on right before the Packers and Niners playoff game. 

Easy-Peasy?  Give me a break.  Such craptastic lyrics.

God I hope not. Luckily I haven't seen this new one airing here yet.
