I watch the old-fogey station ME-TV for the 70's sit-coms. Almost all the commercials are for Proactive and other acne creams, complete with close ups of acne on fresh faces. So glad I have a 60" screen with HDTV. Gross! Plus I doubt teens watch this channel. What gives? It's even worse to hear them talking, "My friends are all like 'OMG your face is all like clear' and I'm all like 'I know! It's like amazing!" It makes me like want to vomit!"

Oi! Less of the "old fogey" remarks. Some of us are sensitive. When I was a teen, I used to nick my mum's face powder to cover up what minor blemishes erupted on the old fizzog.

When ever I watch that old fogey channel I get bombarded with that retired couple "having the time of their lives" with their Consumer Cellular phones. Wish their damn motor home would get a flat tire and crash.

I see the zit-cream ads all the time on Antenna TV (another CLASSIC TV channel) and they are major white-and-turquoise eyesores! Dead

...except for when they're red-and-cream zitsores.

Ugh -- Proactive ads! I want to punch all those stupid valley girls -- especially the one who says "It's (something) it's (something else)" and then, spitting it out like a bullet, "It's effECTive." Are they still running that bunch? Those chicks must be in their 40s now. Presumably, their skin has cleared up by now.

Here here, I'm 57 years young and don't consider myself an old fogie. I like those classic TV shows. I can do without F Troop that was just retarded. But Dragnet is so over the top trying to be with it, it's too funny. Regarding zits, when I had them and still get an occasional pusser, take a swab with hot water and pop that fu*ker till she oozes out the yellow fizz. The zit cream commercial is just boring.
I approve this message.

Oh, Christ...is this thread going to degenerate into disgusting and juvenile zit talk?  Angry

Oh what the hell.  I'm 58, and I still get 'em on occasion.  You shoulda seen this one I had on my side awhile back.  I squeezed it from where I sit at this very moment and it shot 5 feet to the side, landing on some old record albums I had lined up.  To this day, one of 'em still has the creamy red crust of my DNA evidence on it.

I wonder how much Proactiv this beauty would require.

That's simply hoarding of perfectly good pus.

I'll bet if you stuck a pin in the head of that thing, it'd shoot 20 feet...and for 20 seconds.

That'd be cool if it very quietly happened at Golden Corral and nobody noticed for a little bit.
 You know - a table here, a table there, somebody's glasses, the Chocolate Wonderfall, maybe the broccoli...

The Proactiv ads that grab my attention are the "ADAM LEVINE: ROCK STAR" variants - specifically, how dare they refer to Adam Levine as a 'rock star',

Really!!  Rock stars wouldn't whine about the acne they had as adolescents.  Try to imagine Mick Jagger getting all emo about his teenage acne.  Then again, this Levine guy doesn't really rock, so...
