Why do so many advertisers feel compelled to use music like this? That person "singing" sounds like a cartoon character. I detest the "music" of today!

I know, it's horrible. This commercial comes and goes at times. I swear the bitch singing here has a helium latex balloon handy so they can get the highest, most obnoxious voice possible.

It's actually a song from 1979.

And regardless, it's a terrible, horrible song. I don't think even Minnie Mouse sounds this annoying.

I'm so sick of this horrible commercial that I feel like finding the nearest rock and throwing it at my TV. This weekend I've seen it, at least, 25 times. If not, 30 or 40.

Ring this, Walmart! Shove this up your a$$es! AngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngry

it follows Walmarts 'bludgeoning' tactic of constant repetition of a 'theme' that only the most severely retarded could miss- aka 'ring my bell'...

OK WE GET IT U HOME DELIVER!!

I received my Walmart shipment today and they did not ring my bell.

To be fair, there is no bell to ring.  Tongue

They delivered my package of 5 items (all in one box!  and at the same time!!) which I ordered late Sunday night.  Two-day shipping free because I got over $35 worth of needed stuff.  Got it Monday at 2:15pm.  Stellar!  Star

The only complaint I have is that they use FedEx to deliver and, despite my leaving a detailed note on the gate to bring it upstairs to my number, he delivered it to the other staircase's landing.  I had to carry a 25-lb box down stairs and up my stairs, which wasn't easy for me.

So, Good on Walmart, bell or no bell, bad on FedEx.

I never heard of it back then. I was actually still living in my home country (England, U.K.), and I hated disco with a passion.
I still hate disco, which is now called hip hop.

I swear this might be one of the top 10 worst commercials of 2018. Just saw it again today, and muted it immediately.

That is precisely why it drove people to do... THIS.

Now here's the thing:
I don't mind disco music. It's much better music than the dreck and rap that's on Top 40 radio today. Donna Summer, the Bee Gees, Village People, you name it. I'll take 'Macho Man' over 'All I Do is WINWINWIN...' I hear 'Ring My Bell' once in a while on my local Rhythmic Oldies FM station. Now I have to change the FM station - thank you Walmart!

I tolerate 70s disco now more than I did in the 70s, but not this song.

We all hated disco in the 70's. Most of the white kids I knew back in high school and later, in college, also hated what was back then known as "soul music".

Now when I occasionally hear that old disco and soul music, I realize that a lot of it was truly great.

I often times imagine myself going back in time and telling those people I knew back then to enjoy it while they can, because what's coming down the road in the future is so bad that they'll be looking back at that music and longing for "the good ol' days".




Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!
