    ... not that there's anything wrong with that.



    My kids' favorite BK spot with the King was the first one we saw where he runs onto the field from out of nowhere, intercepts a pass and runs all the way for a TD ... "It's just so random," they say, laughing.

    Resurrecting this thread with a current Sears Kenmore Elite refrigerator ad...the one with the lady carrying a large sheet cake on a journey between home and party. One scene has her exiting a public restroom stall balancing the cake in one hand. She arrives at the party to witness another guest removing something large from the fridge which will allow the large sheet cake to fit inside.

    IMNSHO, there's something just plain icky about insinuating anything edible, not to mention sizeable, spent some time in a public bathroom stall while the loo was in use! Eeeeeuuuuwwww!

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but...

    You Can't Over Love Your Underwear

    The concept is funny, but the fact that the chorus replays over and over again in your head is enough to make you go nuts.

    Man, I got the same icky feeling from that ridiculous ad. Why, given the montage of other random everyday locations, did the public toilet even get included -- in the script, or in the final ad? Nothing else in the ad implies that they were trying to be quirky or edgy, so it baffles me that something like that could get on the air without someone going, "Um, you know what..."

    "I'm sorry, ma'am, but that cake has been flagged."

    Been noticing CITI credit card commericals using the same spokeperson over several commericals. Anyone know who this person is?

    I don't mind the cavemen. Though I think they've had a good run, and definitely don't think they can sustain a series.

    Funny. I was just thinking of this thread when my wife called me into the living room to watch a commercial for the Barbie toy, "Tanner," the dog. This thing poops. To get the poop out, of course, you need to put it in, first. In his mouth.

    I can't even begin to imagine how this toy made it to full-scale production.

    I LIKE some of the caveman ads.

    "I'll have the roast duck, with the mango salsa."

    "I don't have much of an appetite."

    LOL...

    Sure, the first couple of times was funny, after that, it just gets more stupid. They just keep on running it to the ground. GAWD!!.

    The Commercial on: the caveman guy talking to his therapist. He got mad about it, & said "it's so easy that a therpist can do it"

    She said, "it just wont makes any sense",

    The caveman guy says "why? becuse tharpists are smart? (phone rings), it's my mother, I'll put her on spaker". (end of commercial).

    What's next for the commercial for the caveman guys?.

    I think, I would have prefered watching that cute gekko with an english accent lizzard.

    I wouldn't mind having him as a pet.

    Serentity..."they" keep on airing it "to the ground" because it's selling the product and they will keep airing those spots 'til there's clear indication that they need to update them or change the campaign entirely.

    And, yes, I preferred the gecko spots, too!

    I don't know if anyone saw this commerical, I think it was for Starburst.

    It was the one for the Berries and Cream with that creepy guy that sings that, "Berries and Cream, Berries and Cream, I am a little lad that likes Berriesssssssssss and Crrrrrrream."

    ================================
    About those Burger Kind commericals, what was stranger than the commerical was the Xbox game Sneak King. If you clicked the left stick it would show two eye holes staring at people and heavy breathing. Almost like Jason from Halloween.

    Felt like I was watching a sequel trailer of Omen High School Musical.

    I am kind of frowning on the GE commerical that has a fishing trawler that nets in bottle shaped ice with the announcer saying how much sea water gets turned in fresh water.

    Show what the plant looks like, not give the impression that all you have to do is to fish it from the sea.

    saw a taco bell commercial that i felt was offensive and racist.... produced by taco bell hawaii.... they show 3 obviously local guys acting like goofy mexican mariachi clowns....very stereotypical and very much a put down to mexicans..... someone had there head where there is no light to produce an offensive ad such as this. as long as this ad is running i will NOT be going to taco bell. Totally Racist.

    I don't hate this commercial. But, that commercial that spoofs the movie Poltergeist is really creepy. I saw on E True Hollywood Story that this movie is cursed. That little girl died young and the teen actress was murdered.
