I searched and didn't see anyone pointing this video irritant out so here it is:



Yes, your life can be so much better by spending lots and lots of money for crap you can pick up in the clearance aisle at Kmart.

The only thing that makes it smile worthy is the look on the two kids' faces at :15 when they react to "mom's" singing

I decorated my house when I moved in in 2002.  It never needs to be decorated again.  Many of my decorations are my favorite big rocks and pieces of wood that I've found.  You don't "update" rocks.

I just can't get it up for all this updating stuff that such places push.  If something needs replacement, it's one thing.  But modernizing or having the latest colors is not for me.  I took great pains to make sure my house doesn't look like any era in particular.  I wanna keep it that way.  Of course, I'm single---so I don't have to feign interest in cute couch pillows and the latest window treatments and that sort of thing.

I have never been a slave to fashion either. In the awful commercial the first 2 women share the same "vocalist". The high pitched cartoon voice hurts my ears.

My neighbor's into buying new "cute" things.  Problem is, she doesn't get rid of the old "cute" things.  Their house is packed.  It's all neat and clean and nicely arranged and all, but Jeez, there's no room left for anything else.  Even the walls are completely covered.

I can't stand walls that have a ton of stuff on them! Makes my skin crawl.

^  They added a new wooden stand of some sort last week to hold more framed pictures, which now obscured the wall clock.  So, they moved the wall clock into a small cubbyhole next to the entertainment center, 'cuz there was no other space left to hang it.  It's barely visible, but for some reason, they just had to get that wall clock in there.  The entire stairway is lined with pictures, as is the hallway.  They must have 300-400 framed pictures in their house, on tables, shelves and walls.  Then, there're all the other sorts of decorations.  To add to it, they had to add crown molding and decorative strips of wallpaper on the walls along the ceilings.  Yikes.  The house is nice, but way too "busy-looking" for me.

^ Sounds like Beloved's boss - pictures of the entire family EVERYWHERE. Good God, how much in love with yourself can you be? They have these huge compilations of pictures framed into one giant mess.

Yep. A lotta that.  And pictures taken of them at some roadside attraction dressed up like the 1800s, and big framed pictures of John Wayne, and pictures with every hairdo Mom's sported since the 1950s, even pictures of their former homes.

The kitchen sports corkboards with all sorts of smaller pictures tacked into it.

OMG, there is so much I hate about this commercial. f**k these people; I would love to see their head's on the end of a pike. Except the kids. They're cute, and they know their mother is a f**king dipsh*t consumer whore c**t.

First off there is that dumb asian bitch skipping around her house, and singing in the most annoying tone possible. Do they have "every color, and size in your mind?" No, nope, no! Your mind is full of shoveled horse sh*t from the dingbat pavilion, you dumb bitch.

And then, here comes the neurotic mom of the year, chasing her kids around the house, because god forbid they drop a blanket on the ground. I would kill myself if I had a wife like that.

Also, at 0:18 there is that pathetic fat jabba the hut pig in pink, doing the fat insecure white girl shuffle. "Too fat to dance. Must... spin... Ruffles and Jack's Link jerkey with pickles flavored ice cream!"

Finally, there is that black guy at the end, and he's doing the gangsta's don't dance no mo picnic shuffle.

This is absolutely the worst commercial on television, mainly due to its trying to appeal to the phoniest motherf**kers on the planet.

I am glad I found this posted (by accident, was looking for another thread) before starting a new thread for it. I believe that the Wayfair song and singers deserve to be ranked very high in the listings of awful commercial music.

It took only ONE viewing/hearing of this earlier tonight to make me hate it.. detest it.. dread it: and, for a moment, I thought..

Wow. “I’m living the life of dreams” has some real competition…

But that was only for a moment.  Sorry Wayfair, you’ll have to try harder to outdo “life of dreams” as perhaps the most deeply despised and hated commercial music of the year. Or any year.

Still, this is truly awful.

Both the first and second girls sound like prepubescent munchkins. Nobody told them to sing from the diaphragm? Freakish singing voices. Wow, I feel so much better!

LOL

If you're a singer or vocal professor, you must really hate another trend we have heard where young women artificially make their voices gravelly because they think it sounds alluring- around here it's called "Vocal Fry" (I learned). I can't think of any threads in particular but one hears it everywhere. I call the male equivalent "Grunge Guy", another advertising ploy. CIH should have threads for both of these awful vocal examples.
The visual equivalent would be the selfie "duck-face" or "platypus-lips" (thanks Thor for that). It could go under one classification of "hipster generic"- something meant to be or sound sexy and cool, but isn't. Smile

^  There are a few threads here about vocal fry.  Here's one where I mentioned this new trend.  I'd just heard my morning radio talk show guys discussing it.

Ah yes-- thanks Thor. I knew that Vocal Fry was mentioned elsewhere. I'll go that thread to comment since it also addresses some other similar issues that piss me off and I want to bump it. LOL

Yeah, vocal fry is another annoying phenomenon. They think they sound more authoritative, but they actually come across as "pretentious dumb" and vapid. Smart people quickly recognize the mismatch between demeanor and content. When I was a nanny from a working class background sunning myself at the pool waiting for my little one's swimming lesson to be done back in the 80's, I was constantly rolling my eyes at the vapid , pretentious convos I heard around me. This involved snobbery in comparing Child World to Toys R Us and Mr. Rogers to. Sesame Street. Who cares? Free Market, rich bitches!

This commercial for me is a mess. I mean, this is the sort of commercial that makes me embarrassed for these actors. I mean, did they grow up thinking " I know what I'm going to be when I grow up! An actor in a commercial where I act like an idiot, and I do it poorly as well". 
People talk about "target market" "oh you don't like this because you are not the target market" - whatever, keep telling yourself that to try to deny that some commercials are just a reflection of poor creativity and people sucking at their jobs.

The first chick has the annoying voice, IMO.

I know the second "chick" - she's a colleague of mine, and I think her voice is quite wonderful. But of course this ad doesn't really show what she can do musically.
