    How many stupid commercials have you seen lately?

    I just watched one, where a lady asked others of the same ilk, if they pee when they laugh.

    After a show of hands, and a plug for a product that is supposed to help that, A "Pop" and some sparkles go off, and the "Spokeslady" couldn't be happier to wet herself!

    I rarely watch shows as they are broadcast-the few shows i enjoy I DVR and FF thru the commercials so I have not seen many commercials in their entirety but today's ad agencies are certainly over the top

    Anything by progressive insurance--Flo was bad enough, but the talking box is unbearable.

    The one where the lady has a repairman over, complaining that her glasses don't get dry in her dishwasher.

    Once the repairman adds the Sponsored "added drying product" telling her that it wasn't the dishwashers fault, the lady gets on her knees and HUGS the dishwasher, pressing her breasts against it while APOLOGIZING to the freaking machine!

    The 10 year old kid with his feet up in an easy chair when the father has to kneel before him,and starts sweating profusely because he didn't get the " most bestest " $6 pizza.

    Then, the father has to bow down lower so the brat can rip off part of the dad's patch from his hat and toss it away.

    If I was that kid's father, I would have just headed to the table and started digging into the pizza, and told the brat that his dinner was up to him, suggesting a nice PB&J!:rolleyes:

    ANY commercial that portrays men as emasculated, subservient, or generally stupid! (Which comprises about 80% of any commercial that includes one or two women in it! ):rolleyes:

    I wouldn't call it stupid. But this one cracks me up every time I see it.

    The Beaches commercials... all the thin, attractive people. Sure there are some that look like that, but most are fat, hairy Europeans in Speedos!!

    Not to get political or off topic, but I do notice that in most commercials which have 2 or more people the "uninformed" is the white male who is older. Like the mailboy or the teen girl knows more in business how to solve the problem.

    I cant stand "Flo". The other ones are the stupid "insurance safe driving check" if you go 6 months without an accident. Which means you over pay, they keep you money for 6 months, invest it, earn a profit, then send you your money back without interest. How stupid can people be?

    Or the Liberty Mutual girl who named her car "Brad".

    The Big Pharm ones, my wife and I will rip up over..........let's see, "If you take Logenza drug you may experience a rash, blindness, diarrhea, loss of memory, morbidity, loss of hair, and green urine. If you experience death, please consult with your physician." Sounds good to me !!!

    The sad thing is that even the Bud Light commercials have no imagination anymore!

    The Advertising agencies have lost their imagination!

    One of the funnier commercials lately is the D-Con one, where the kid points to what looks like a cucumber on the floor, asking " Hey, Dad, what's that?"

    When a "trail" of them lead to the pantry. Upon opening the door, there's a guy in a huge rat costume!

    At least there's SOME humor left!:)

    How about the dad driving his kids in his minivan, when he stops, grabs a "Cheeto" to use as a microphone, tells the kids to be quiet, because This is my jam"... then he belts out "Tell It To My Heart"

    Can you spell "DORK"?:rolleyes:
