    I vote for clever and funny. Geico Commercials, except for the incessant repetition, are a bright spot on an otherwise vast wasteland, ranking right up there with Alka Seltzer and Volkswagon commercials of yore. I think the small house, reality show spoof, is my fav.

    Re: Horrible commercial

    I have an intense dislike for commercials with the bored, smarmy or just plain downright condescending voiceover.
    Monotone. Two octaves at most, that drops at the end of sentences. Terrible. Not appealing, nor is it convincing that I should invest in their product or any of my time with their commercial.
    How bout that guy who sounds as if he either just woke up, or is trying to scare or outgrowl his bulldog.

    "cheezits. gitchur ownbokksss."



    ****
    any and all A1 steaksauce commercial. Bad, bad baaad.

    balanced out by all those ala moana Sh. Ctr commercials. very cute and catchy. great music.

    Aaaugh!
    Yeah, I actually wrote about that one here a while back. As I recall, what he actually says is "Life is too precious to waste a single moment." and then he and the wife and kids all crack up as if life is not precious.
    Go figgah.

    No, to pay for the hearing aid, he asked his family members:
    "Can't we all just get a loan?"

    Oh, yeah! That hearing aid commercial!!! The one, "I'm Randy Wohlers and I have a speech impediment which makes it appear that you have a hearing impairment, so why don't you come down and get a $5,000 hearing aid from me?" guy...

    The guy sounds like he's got a stuck nose and is speaking into a cardboard box!

    Then at the end of the commercial, he, his wife and I presume his grandkids are sitting around a table when he says something like, "Can't we all just get along?" and all the grandkids laugh like he just told a joke!!

    Aaaugh!

    Re: Horrible commercial

    can't recall the hearing aid commercial, but by and large, I don't like the reactions of "actors" on many commercials:
    That one where the low oil lite comes on as the family drives the blvd. then at a stoplight, the engine shakes itself outta the suv, and bounces down to the nearest oil change place.
    The mom and family are doing nothing more then looking slightly concerned at a point over the hood.
    as if a dog were wandering across the road.
    An engine popping out and taking off requires much more than a dumb deadpan expression, which seems to be the nonactor's response to anything in all commercials.
    And, no, I don't believe the nonexpressiveness adds to the comedic touch of the commercial.
    They need more reaction.
    Fire them all and get real actors.

    I PM Ryan eariler this evening about this situation and suggested to move responses #48 and later to some other forum in HawaiiThreads.
    Ryan, we have a situation, here!

    Let's keep this topic back to "Horrible Commericals".
    uh, yea. that's what I said!

    (topic's been played out by now. we covered the ground.)



    oh, yea. any time-warner cable commercial.
    One where the guy is watching football. Camera framed on only his hands wiggling, then shooting outward. strange.
    and freeky people. ohohohooo.

    Many of the tmobile "toke anytime" catherine zeta jones.
    except the one where the family is talking like auctioneers. that one is well done. Funny.
    and check da marquee behind the teenage girl:
    4 finger poi
    it sez.


    oh, and the latest
    I'm Jellin
    scholls commercials.
    not right. kid's baseball crashes thru window, straight into new plasma TV on the wall. shatters it.
    Kid apologizes, Dude sez;
    No worries ya cute lil brat. It's just my new plasma TV.
    Oh you must be jellin, kid sez.

    OK; this teaches kids it's ok to damage 5000.00 worth of new electronics as long as ya give the guy a 2.99 pair of insoles first.

    it also teaches spoiled yuppies to NOT wring lil vandal's necks if and when they happen to be in the opportune vicinity of inches away from yer two hands.

    aaaand I'm spent.
