Strudel-Boy and Cawowine: Irritating Kids in Commercials

Recommended Posts

“Am I cute?”

Well, kid, if you have to ask, the answer is generally no.

(unfortunately, she is cute.  Annoying, but cute.)

Yes, she is cute, but the part that bugs me is when she says "Look at these dimples!" The kid doesn't have any dimples. If that's an important part of the ad, find a cute kid with dimples - can't be that hard.

For kids in commercials, all they need is to be cute without being sickeningly so, and able to say their lines so you can understand what they just said.  The current trend in kids seems to be kids who basically act and sound like adults (as opposed to old people who act like kids, which is always annoying), which doesn't bother me. As for the content of the ad, they shouldn't be held responsible (really, neither should adult actors in ads).

Hey, Commercial Dad.  Your kid is not a future half of famer.  (Your kid is also not a good actor.)  And if your kid was so freaking stupid he would  run off the field to get a glass of bottled lemonade, he is also not going to be a Rhodes scholar.  Does he have a health condition that makes him so thirsty he can't wait?

Have you ever watched little kids play a sport?  Things like this happen all the time.  They are easily distracted by squirrels, clouds, and lemonade.

Argh, those kids in the tp commercial. I don't want to hear a bunch of insipid brats lisping about how clean they feel.

That one girl that is Cawowine v2.0 who is clean as a Cwistol Castle or Shimmuwing Mwuhmaid (depending on which version you see).  Really?  You can't hire actors without speech impediments?

Terry Pratchett, in one of the Discworld books featuring Susan, snarked on the idea that lisping and other speech affectations make a small child "cute". There are some adults who seem to think that, I have no idea why.

The ones that are physical and/or developmental, no - that's going to happen regardless. But they pick up words easier when they hear them done properly.

Reminds me of an old Steve Martin routine about talking "wrong" to your kids, so that when they go to school, they raise their hands & say, "May I mambo dog-face to the banana peel?"

LOL. When my son was 4, he played flag football and used to run off the field to get a snack from me. No health condition. He just liked snacks.

Maybe she's smart enough to realize that she's inherited his acting skills - which is to say, neither of them can act?

So I watch Cartoon Network occasionally (okay more than occasionally, don't judge me!) so I am, naturally, subjected to what may be the most annoying kid I ever heard on a commercial. She is the little screaming one on the LOL Dolls commercials Apparently her name is Mykal Michelle and I would link to a commercial but I cannot put myself through that torture, I'm sorry. Everytime she comes on I just want to pierce my eardrums with an ice pick.  And ear god, the amount of eye makeup they have put on her makes me cringe - and I love makeup and don't have a problem with kids wearing it.  I just can't with this kid.

Has anyone nominated the entire Kars4Kids band? Because starting with the lead singer junior douche, I want to slap the shit out of all of them. Which is ironic because I think it's supposed to benefit children who suffer from abuse. I'm pretty sure the whole thing is some weird scam though, I mean how does me donating a boat to Kars4Kids somehow affect how much they're abused by their parents? Do they give the boat to the parents so they have something other than abuse their kids to do?

Don't blame the kids, blame the adults who made the ad.  It was discussed earlier that Kars 4 Kids benefits some fundamentalist Jewish organization that's kind of sketchy (starting with the ad). But I hate having to hear that song over and over.

Somebody please tell that annoying little dancer girl with a tulle skirt and sneakers in the Chase commercial to please go away and not come back?  I can't remember the last time I've been so irritated by a child's spunky  ' Little Miss Thing' attitude.  Confidence is one thing, but her parents need to tell her to take it down a notch instead of fist-bumping her.  Her little shimmy dance on the first place podium while the 2nd and 3rd placers modestly stand there makes me want to knock her off

All the kids in those mac & cheese ads who refuse to eat real food need to be stranded on a desert island where there's nothing to eat but bugs and raw fish with a side of seaweed. The little twit flatly spouting nonsense about his fake allergy and food colors that don't mix really makes the palm of my slappin' hand itch. And the girl who has to be bribed with French fries to get her to eat broccoli can go with them. I've also grown to hate the song that fires up while the little buggers triumphantly shovel dripping spoonfuls of that crap into their faces. 

These ads are on heavy rotation on the food channels unfortunately, so due to how much I love cooking competitions I see them too often. My own fault but still I bitch.

I totally agree! And they are going to result in some very bad habits in kids that watch them.

The one I detest is the one where the mother has prepared a full salmon dinner and little mister drama goes all death spiral until Mom makes mac and cheese for the whole family.  Did she toss out that perfectly good salmon?

Hopefully the parents ate it, shared it with the cats, and sent the kid to bed without any supper. The part of the commercial with the kid eating mac n' cheese accompanied by Enya's haunting vocals is the kid's dream.

The ad isn't for the kids, it's for the parents. Just feed the kids nuggets, they'll never know. I question how much benefit it is to have whatever portion of veggies is in them.

Pffft. Like kids don't  notice  commercials.  

According to Perdue, there's  1/4 cup of  veggies in each serving of  nuggets. And according to  Healthychild dot org, 1/2 cup of  cooked  veggies is  recommended for  children  ages 7-10.

And if your kids question their nuggets, you can lie to them. I never had kids, wasn't a picky eater - ate everything put in front of me.

I'm sure there are ample resources to help parents get their kids to eat a healthy diet. I have 11 step-grandchildren, and they all eat a healthy diet. I'm annoyed with advertisers saying kids won't eat a healthy diet.

So am I. Plus that snotty smirk on that kid's face makes me feel rage because I don't blame him, I blame the adults that think it's cute.

Yeah, parents, sneak veggies in so your kids get in the habit of eating (what they think are) typical chicken nuggets, rather than learning good eating habits.  Even if the chicken nuggets are the healthiest thing in the world, lying to the kids about it isn't really good for their diets in the long run.

Since I despise fish and seafood I would want something else, too! However, I would never expect anyone else to also change their meal. I feel bad when someone apologies for ordering it at a restaurant because they know the smell makes me nauseous.

Stella loves cooked tomatoes - tomato soup, marinara, pizza sauce - she'll eat it all. But she doesn't like dairy. Which is OK, because Bosco does and she leaves it all for him.  Mmmmm...sour cream residue after the cheese blintzes have been eaten...nothing better!  The late Scooter ate anything orange except citrus...pumpkin, carrots, canteloupe, butternut squash, peaches - she'd gobble it up.
