    Oh, and car commercials. So full of bullshit! Oh, and yes for sure the drug ads and the Ancestry.com ads are highly enraging! lol...

    for me, the worst, most-annoying ads are always for things like dental products and shaving products. These entire giant industries built up around teeth whitening and blades that "adjust" to the curves of your face. I just get so sick of tooth brushes and razors that look like Formula 1 cars! And then at the grocery store you stand there staring at a crazy wall of different little brushes for your teeth! dozens of different ones...it's ludicrous!

    I stumble across stuff on Amazon all the time. Probably more so than I ever did in bookstores. Those "other things you may be interested in" lists are utter rabbit holes! And the prices are much better and the books get delivered right to my door so I don't have to go to the mall and risk being near other human beings! It's a total win! 😄

    saw a Nissan ad last night which was promoting the computer assistance in their cars. The ad features a woman making her morning commute to work. Of course, she's in heavy traffic. Luckily she has a computer to help her out! She switches the magic computer assistant on and we are treated to one of those lovely shots of her car in a lane with a nice magic digital laser show painted on the road in front of her. Flash back to our heroine in her magic car and now she has a cocky grin on her face as the computer magically makes cars in front of her disappear from existence (since I can't think of any other way this can actually work) and she gets to work in excellent time! Thank you magic computer!, its a pet peeve of mine in ads when some feature or product is presented doing something way outside its actual parameters. There's an ad for a Gillette razor in which a fireman talks about having to shave every day in order for his safety mask to seal properly to his face and how this one gillette shaver does the job without irritating his sensitive skin. he's then shown heading into a blazing inferno! lol. every time I see the ad I say to myself "Gillette - Saving lives one shave at a time!"

    Could RBC have possibly chosen a more annoying little twerp for a spokesperson? The first ad where he walks around his apartment asking questions about things he could do with his money ("like a tur-ducken of savings!") is bad enough - I imagine this gimp spending several hours on a saturday hassling some bank rep online with his endless goof-ball money scenarios while he carries his laptop around his apartment doing chores and fixing himself a snack - but now there's a whole series of them. The "squirrelly-bank" one is another gooder, I just saw a Weight Watchers ad that has a very brief clip of Oprah out for a bike ride. LOL...I think she's wearing some sort of whole-head protective gear. Not a bike helmet but a padded item that encloses most of her head. I assume it's something one of her companies markets. 😄 She looks so happy! Oh Oprah...always so enthusiastic and energetic! I hate you. lol...

    OMG the AMSR stuff is so bloody annoying! It's for people who enjoy when a live bug gets stuck in their ear... I'm finding those weird little O'Keefes hand cream commercials more and more annoying. You see a few seconds of what they consider to be a "lame" commercial for a product like theirs, and then the real spokesperson takes over and talks about O'Keefes. I get the point that they are pushing - that O'Keefes isn't some dainty cosmetic lotion or something - but the setup is weird. It's always someone out skiing or putting gas in their car and for some reason there's a TV screen there for them to watch the lame ad on. The contrivance annoys me, lol...

    yeah, i know. most of the complaints we have about annoying ads have reasonable counter points but where's the fun in that? lol...actually, the ad would like come off better if the dude actually said something like "...and a medical situation left me with some credit problems" or something like that. Makes him a sympathetic spokesperson. i'm pretty sure there's nothing altruistic about what the car dealership is doing though. I doubt their primary concern is to help people improve their credit situation when they sell them an awesome truck.

    the ad for one of those online credit score "services" with the two incredibly annoying "bro chicks" talking about an apartment. When the one girl describes how great the apartment she saw is and she breaks into song about how it's "a 15 minute commute to work" I get a little stabby. Then when the other girl tells the guy at the next table to keep his eyes to himself because "this apartment is hers" I get a little more stabby. And wtf is the benefit of being able to look up my credit score? I love these ads that make it seem like there's some great mystery about credit ratings - like a person would be shocked to discover they had a bad credit score or something. "Hmmmmm, let's see...I failed to pay off that $30k student loan 25 years ago plus I missed 6 or 10 mortgage payments over the past few years and I currently owe $50k on my 12 credit cards. Let's have a look here at my credit ratinnnnnnnnnnng......BWAH!!!???? 3???? my credit rating is 3???? out of 1000????? whyyyyyyyyyyy??????????" And once I do have this credit score revealed to me how does that change what I'm doing? "Oh if only I had a numerical rating telling me exactly how bad my credit is...THEN I'd be able to finally figure out how to manage my life!" There's an ad I see all the time for a car dealership who apparently don't care if you have bad credit. The ad features some dude describing his experience buying an "awesome truck" (because everyone wants an awesome truck). As he describes his situation when he was shopping for an awesome truck he notes off-handedly "aaaaaaaaand I didn't have a very good credit rating." In essence, we've now been informed that the guy shilling for this car company is a dope who can't manage his finances. Just the kind of guy you want to get advice from about major expenditures...

    I doubt if any of the people in those commercials are using dating apps. :)

    the Match commercial with the dark-haired gal (Lisa?) who keeps saying she "definitely" wants this and she "definitely" wants that...i think i know why she might be having trouble getting a relationship going. oh, and there's an ad running for some diarrhea med that features 2 "moms" describing their different vacay experiences where one took the med and the other didn't. the one who didn't of course got sick and spent the entire vacation [whisper voice]"in the bathroom"[/whisper voice]. the diarrhea mom is perfectly casted...she truly looks like a person who suffers constant poop issues. good job whoever chose her!

    i fucking HATE that commercial, and by extension, that show! i want somebody to punch that sanctimonious douche in his holier-than-thou throat. in fact i'm pretty sick of that general type of show really - focused on some totally awesome, in control, self-assured perfect leader person who always makes the correct most profound decisions...bullshit

    Man, there is just no end to the stupid Chevy commercials. Just saw one now that I think must be a newer example - the beardy dweeb and his selection of dumb real people are standing out in some desert watching a bunch of trucks drive towards them across the dunes while Beardy McDweeb asks them questions about which truck won what award or something and as the dopes call out wrong answers such as "Ford" the wrong answer trucks peel away from the approaching phalanx so that eventually only the 3 Chevy trucks are still coming toward them. The ad ends like that, but in my fantasy imagination the 3 Chevy trucks continue driving toward the group of idiots and actually plow right through them all... These ads are so fucking stupid it's beyond belief. Seriously, they might as well just have created about 20 different commercials with Beardy McDweeb doing nothing but standing there literally telling his group of imbeciles they should buy Chevy trucks cuz they're good. That's essentially what the ads consist of. Chevy trucks are good. Buy one.
