    I have a problem with it, too, even tho' they're aiming that spot at a certain demographic. Based on the boy's reaction to Jessica, he should look at least 18. She's a little over-the-top sexy to be flaunting a minor's reaction like that within the context of a commercial. Sure, there are boys his age lusting after her. But, well, never mind! 'Nuff said!

    get ready for more hair pullin' helen. It is spreading like wildfire and ad agencies and their dumb clients think this look is just as hot. To our detriment and chagrin. Dayum their eyes!

    I have been meaning to post this one for quite some time but the TD Waterhouse commericals with Sam Watterson sort of turns me off with him speaking and the camera is moving around at different angles and at times it shows that he is not facing the camera.

    Static subject, dynamic camera angles somehow doesn't work for me.

    Does anybody else detest that awful commercial for RoadRunner with teenybopper Vanessa Carlton singing "Time Is On My Side"? It's like some kind of water torture. Every time it comes on and I hear the first two notes of the song I lunge to hit the Mute button.
    The first time I saw it I thought Vanessa's song was awful and thought it was perhaps a joke, like she was some instant reject from American Idol. Her voice is nasal and flat, and her piano playing is like something you'd hear at an elementary school recital.
    Sorry to vent, but the commercial is just horrible.
    I agree. I haven't heard that comm. in a while, but whenever it came on I would quickly change the channel.

    maybe fodder for anodder thread but:

    Taco bell drive thru one day. waited long time in line only to hear apathetic voice on that old scratchy intercom thing. then when i pulled up they all but tossed me my order, which wasn't even the correct order. This was years ago, so don't remember the other things i bitched about when i called their 800 number, but they sent, by way of apology and compensation, a 15% coupon for my next visit.
    whoptee f#&!n dooo!


    in contrast to the time I was a got spoiled carton of milk at da Waimanalo jack in da crak. Called the number, they were very conciliatory. Sent me coupons for two full free lunches or dinners...

    The Eclipse Mints "Hot Dog" and "Onion" spots.

    "Mr. Hot Dog" studies Spanish and realizes the sentence he's reading spells his own demise. Then an Eclipse Mints truck drives up and he runs away yelling then blows up.

    "Onion Man" gets blown up by a pack of Eclipse Mints thrown under a door crack.

    Something about those costumes and voice-overs just totally creep me out.

    It wasn't about an ad, but rather a product... I once got an "empty" envelope of hot cocoa mix, and wrote the company that only the invisible man would like their product. I never heard anything back.

    Years ago, I read where Hawaii had paid for a criminal's "one way ticket leaving Hawaii", and it gave the name of the destination city. I wrote that city's police dept, thanking them for taking our criminals off our hands. I did not hear back on that, either, but later learned that it was posted on their employee bulletin board.

    Anyone else had fun with complaints?

    While on the topic of political ads, I hate all the political ads that only speak to 'families'. Hello, I am single, as is 40% of the voting-age population! I left Hawaii in 2000 so missed Lingle's campaign, and wonder if she laid the pro-family rhetoric as thick as the other pols, considering she is single without children... I didn't mean to turn this into a political rant but when I see those commercials I run for the mute button! Next time say 'voters' instead of 'families'. Mahalo!!!!

    Yes, Billy Mays yelling. I hate getting yelled at. Don't know anybody who doesn't. If he comes on I stop whatever I am doing and change the channel. Not just kill the volume, change the channel as a small vote against getting yelled at. I also hate all well crafted political ads because they cost a lot of money to make so nice and whoever is paying all that money certainly expects a lot more in return.
