    Re: Horrible commercial

    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!
    Make trouble, have fun, do good stuffs.

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

        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.

            I saw the Geico Commercial about the cave man and the one showing the commercial with the cavemen in a home saying, "ssshhh!"

              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.

                reminds me of the caveman commercials where tv announcer is saying sumpin like: "So simple, even a caveman can figure it out"
                and one caveman on the sofa looks at his 'partner' and says "huh. that is SO condescending"
                Funny.

                    no. the one you saw is horrible and ugly. One I saw was clever and funny. Attractively put together production.

                      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.

                        this one got me. couldn't believe I was fooled by that.
                        and their old navy parody was well done, too.

                        on espnc most every nite, and each and every commercial break has the same damned commercials over and over.

                            Anything’s better that those talking rats ala Beavis and Butt-Head, yuck. I have to grudgingly give them points for originality but after the n-th viewing it's just obnoxious.

                              Hate hate hate any and all of the recent www.vehix.com ads.
                              I'm usually multitasking when I watch TV, so no ad has really caught my eye enough to make me stop whatever else I'm doing to watch it.
