    When this thread first started on Mel's Hawaii Radio & TV website (before it moved here) I believe that same comment popped up once or twice. Apparently the commercial continues to annoy folks.
    And while they're not "local" commercials, I think the series of Ford Focus ads are horrible. The ones where the cars talk/whine/nag at their owners, ya know? I guess I'm not clear on how ads showing annoying cars would make me want to buy one.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

          LOL
          I mostly just watch TV news programs, but still the Focus ads a lot. There are actually several of them, not just one version, but in each one the 'talking' Ford Focus is whining at its owner.

            Oh yeah. I only hear them on Clear Channel stations. I guess since Gregg Hammer and Shawnee used their products in their wedding, they can advertise more on CC based stations.
            How'd I get so white and nerdy?

                Bank of Hawaii continues its series of "we think it's cute but they're insipid" commercials with the "That's My Bank" guy and a sorry attempt to infuse the local lingo with a new transitive verb: Bankohana™. "I Bankohana™ you!" says he. "He Bankohana™'s me!" swoons she. "Puke," says we.

                  I don't think I've mentioned the one that annoys me. It's the Finance Factors one where the nitwit loan officer catches a speeding pen out of the air (thrown by a woman with a Roger Clemens arm). He offers it to his customers and then as the customers are walking out he does a zillion backflips to offer them the pen (as though it were their pen!).

                  The logical inconsistencies in this ad just bug me, for some reason. Why would a loan officer not have a multitude of writing implements at his desk? If he didn't have said pens, why would he need some woman to fire one to him from 25 feet away at 98mph? And why would he feel a need to backflip through the lobby just to offer up the pen? The customers have a zillion mortgage documents to keep as a memory of the occasion; they need the damn pen, too?

                    You're right of course, but heck I would love to see my banker do back flips for me instead of stamping "No" on my loan application from behind his big koa desk paid for with my service fees.

                    As inconsistant as this ad was, you still remember the exact actions of that commercial which tells me that commercial got you to remember it...which is exactly what it intended to do.

                    Logic has no place in the entertainment biz anyway or it wouldn't be creative or fun. And we wouldn't have a topic to make fun of if all ads were boring and mundane. As bad as the old 70's Rinso ads were, I still remember it as if it were...um ah....has it been over 30 years already?
                    Life is what you make of it...so please read the instructions carefully.

                              It's Tanya and her sister Carla grad from kalani back in the late 70's. Come to think of it Carla's classmate was Ginger Davenport (who married then divorced Mike Vasconcellos and is now the halftime coordinator for the SF 49ers). Ginger's older sister Jasmine did the old Bank of Hawaii commercials before she died in the 80's, now those commercials were good.

                              But Tanya...Oh my, too sing song for me

                                no. its da one where the guy climbs a supposedly high mtn and asks the wise sage whazz da meaning of life, dude?!"
                                and he sez:
                                "cars costs lest ats cutter."
                                or sumpin li dat; he really flubs his line and da buggas dont even reshoot!
