It’s been a while since I’ve done a weekend survey. The topic for this one is annoying TV commercials. There are several companies attempting to sell products over the airwaves right now who should fire their ad campaign executives as well as the people who hired them. These commercials go beyond bad to downright annoying. Instead of encouraging me to try their product, they have actually pushed me away by the incredibly low level of intelligence of their ads. Here they are in no particular order:
The GEICO commercials with the talking lizard.
The Sonic Drive-in ads with the really dumb guy.
The Verizon Wireless ad with the carolers singing “We Wish You a Happy Deal Day”.
The Coke Zero commercials where Coca-Cola corporate reps are trying to decide if it is feasible to sue themselves for taste infringement.
And am I the only one who is wierded out by the gigantic plastic Burger King who suddenly appears in people’s bedrooms with a breakfast tray?
Thanks for allowing me to vent a little. Feel free to add to the list. God bless and have a great weekend.
