Do we already have a thread for this? I didn't see one.

I just saw that Enterprise Car Rental commercial where the guy and woman are talking and she mentions that they pick you up. He says, "Well, they should be number one" - which is ****ing stupid and doesn't even make any sense. And the woman says, "They ARE number one!"

Then the worst part - he says, "Well if they're number one, they should have this" and pulls his hand from behind his back - he's wearing one of those idiotic foam number one hands.

ARRRGH it's so stupid! I hate stupid commercials!

Re: Stupid commercials

I saw a really dumb one a while ago wear this woman takes her dog's old, weathered stuffed bear from him while he's sleeping, throws it out, and buys him a new one.

Do people know NOTHING about dogs?!:x


And to top it all off I have no idea what the commercial was for.

My dog had a stuffed teddy bear when he was a puppy. It was about the same size as him so he looked incredibly cute when he'd carry it around in his mouth...

Then he started having sex with it so the teddy bear got put out to pasture, and by pasture, I mean garbage.

Well that's a different story, but the commercial was showing her throw it out just because it was old. As I'm sure you know, dogs become very attached to their old toys and blankets and stuff. You don't just throw them out.

Re: Stupid commercials

Anybody seen this one: "Head on! Apply directly to the forehead!..... Head on! Apply directly to the forehead!.... Head on! Apply directly to the forehead!"?

Worst commercial ever.

I don't care how effective their product is I refuse to buy just because of their commercial.

I agree. This might actually relate to the Bendis and buying USM thing we have going on in a different thread. Don't get off topic though. :D

Re: Stupid commercials

I think this is just another conspiracy by my friends and internet friends to drive me crazy, because I have NEVER seen, nor heard, that commercial, but EVERYONE talks about it.

I haven't seen it either.

I hate those comercials that advertise text flirting, and it always shows hot girls stopping their pillow fight so that they can send some flirty text messages, or a bunch of dudes high fiving each other.

Those half to be more pathetic than, 1-900 numbers. At least then you can hear the woman. These are like a $1.95 a text, too. This scam seriously reminds me of Crank Yankers skit where they call a 1-900 number and say his friend wants to have phone sex, but he's deaf, so he needs his friend as an intermediary.

Maybe its for mute people cause' they just wanna have fun too.


Local commercials are the worst, this place here in Lubbock is called Ralph's Records they used to have one that "parodied" the Wizard of Oz; now the new one does not make any sense whatsoever it's like its made up of inside jokes that weren't funny to begin with. It just boggles my mind.

There's this great commercial for some party line thing called "Red Hots" that I see all the time. There's a chick in a ridiculously skimpy pick nightgown laying in front of the camera. She says,

"My ex-boyfriend said I used to call Red Hots just for random hookups and you know what? He's right."

Her "OMG-I'M-SO-HOT!" expression when she says that makes me laugh everytime.

Call your doctor about Lunesta.Lunesta" They say the name some many times it just pisses me off. And is anyone getting this negative ad campaigns that pretty much just says their with Bush? Of course they are they're republicans you dumb ****! The rest of those ads are so stupid and rediculus I feel like voting against the guys approving it

Re: Stupid commercials

I, unfortunetly, do.

I remember seeing a commercial a while back where they depicted Harold Ford Jr. as an assosiate of porn moguls and another stating that he intends to sell the abortion pill to schoolchildren. The only it was missing was "I'm Bob Corker and I approve this message."

"Michael Ian Black loves motor scooters!

During his six years in power, Bob Feldman has never stated his opinion about motor scooters.

NEVER STATED HIS OPINION ABOUT MOTOR SCOOTERS?

Bob Feldman: Out of touch. Out of ideas. Let's put him OUT. OF. OFFICE.

I'm Michael Ian Black, and I approve this message."
