That song from the Infiniti ad has its own page.  I normally don't mind twangy music, but something about this one is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

 I don’t really feel one way or the other about the song. But what bugs the heck out of me is when they are at the beach and she’s running away from the car taking her top off and she just leaves the door open.  Does she want a dead battery?

I hate hate hate, with an irrational hatred, the Subaru ad with the heavily pregnant woman who takes her unborn child to the ocean and the forest. "This is the ocean..." The baby can't see or smell the surf, and it's extremely unlikely that it can hear it, either. Forest: "Just listen." Duh.

Hee! My husband was concerned about the possibility of theft of items in car or the car itself. Just because it looks like no one else is around doesn't mean some one could not walk up while they are swimming in the surf.

Enough with the car ads that show "real people" saying good things about a product. Why should I care if these strangers like it? Assuming they actually do, since we're clearly not hearing everything they said. One ad ends with somebody saying that the designer deserves a cookie and a star; was that a nice way for her to say it looked like it was designed by a child?

Oh, the goddamn cookie and the star! LOL. I wrote a review of that ad recently. Holy cow, you aren't kidding. So bad.

If you don't already know how these commercials are made, the people in them really are people off the street. They're approached by young folks with clipboards and asked if they would like to participate in "market research" for $200. So they're paid, which means that once they find out the job is to ooh and ahh over Chevy vehicles on camera, that's exactly what happens -- along with the incredibly stupid blurtations you hear in the ads.

I agree with you, it's time for these ads to go!

I don’t know how long this commercial has been on, but I saw it for the first time last night and my eyes 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 so HARD. It’s called the...Fluidity Bar I think, and it’s a miracle!

Fluidity Barre - it's for barre exercises.  And, yes, you can use things you already have around the house as support, but if you're really into it, I have to say this looks like an easier thing to make room for and set up than installing a traditional barre (because how many people have a room or even portion of a room they want to turn into a dance studio)?  I won't be ordering one while watching late-night TV, mind you, but it's not the worst exercise equipment I've seen advertised.

Bar Louie’s “Restaurants Bite” ad campaign is extremely irritating. One radio ad has a guy talking about how he and his friends are at a restaurant laughing very loudly (“the kind of belly laughs that make whiskey fly out of your nose”) and sounding like they’re being obnoxious. He goes on to say that a manger comes over to ask them to keep it down and “as the laughs stop and the smiles fade, I realized, restaurants bite.” So y’all are upset that your behavior was likely disrupting other patrons and the manager preferred to asking your group to shut the hell up rather than deal with multiple angry customers? But hey, at Bar Louie, you’re free to act obnoxious and loud and they’ll just turn the music up to a level where nobody can hear themselves talk like they’re at a nightclub.

Another is the guy whining about how chain restaurants give you the pager thingy to tell you when your table is ready and apparently, his lack of planning (1. Having to wait 20 minutes for a table and 2. Waiting to go out when you’re famished and now getting all hangry) means “restaurants bite.” Clearly, douchebag never went to Bar Louie on a Tuesday night when they have the half-price burgers. Your ass is gonna be waiting a while for a seat if you didn’t get there early enough. Also, Bar Louie is a chain restaurant so who exactly at they looking down upon?

A third one is the same guy is at some restaurant with artisanal foods with fancy terms and doesn’t serve bar (oh, I’m sorry, “gastropub”) fare prepped at a central location and shipped out  frozen to all locations nationwide to ensure consistency across the board so it can be reheated and served to you means “restaurants bite.”

I fail to see what Bar Louie is trying to get at here. Are they berating restaurants for having quality food standards, being organized, and ensuring all customers can enjoy themselves and the ambiance without being disrupted by loud assholes?

They are providing a valuable service for humanity!  They are letting all the people who behave like moronic loud assholes in restaurants know that there is a special place just for them.  Bar Louie will allow them to be themselves.  And in the meantime, the normal restaurants will be available for the rest of us to patronize, sans douchebags.

I've never seen been to a Bar Louie (there's one in the mall, which might as well be in the seventh circle of hell for me). I've never seen a Bar Louie commercial. But fuck, do I hate them now, based entirely on your post. Outstanding.

Similar vein to this terrible sounding Bar Louie place, I have Dave and Buster's commercials (and establishments, but YMMV, to me they're just a cleaner more expensive Chuck E. Cheese). Whatever they're advertising, whatever specials they have on this month, the commercials all feature a gaggle of adults laughing and smiling like literal fucking maniacs. No one has ever had that much fun doing anything. I like to imagine the voiceover and music removed, and some scary music laid in over their genuine laughter, that commercial would be fucking terrifying.

Have you not seen "The Hartford" ad with Matt McCoy riding along with some senior dude, laughing like loons because "The Hartford" will never drop you, even if you have an accident?  I'm baffled every time I see that commercial - I don't see what's so freakin' funny.

Speaking of Chuck E. Cheese; the latest commercials I've seen are advertising (and singing about) "Chuck E. Cheese's".  My entire life we had one a couple miles from my home, and changing the name just grates!  It is CHUCK E CHEESE!  I'm half expecting one of the animatronics to get a halo.

When I read that, it sounds like it should be preceded with "Show some respect to one Mr. Charles Ephraim Cheese, you fucking philistine!" 🙂

I'm really glad my kids are old enough to not get invited to those things anymore. The whole place smells like the crotches of unwashed sweatpants, and you KNOW none of those 16 year old workers are getting up to the ceiling and scrubbing those kid-sized hamster tubes out more than annually. The strains of bacteria that are being cultured up there, and within striking distance of the food...if that place wanted to make real money they'd charge you four tokens to use their johns like six minutes after ingesting whatever hellspawned bioweapons are sprinkling down into your drink from up there. Anyone who invites you to one of those parties isn't really your friend, kids.

Okay, putting on both my reference librarian hat and my mom-of-3 hat (picture them stacked):
It's both. 
The chain's name is with the apostrophe-s.
The logo and the web address are without the possessive.

Right now the "ad" that annoys me the most isn't actually an ad. I have Youtube TV and for some reason there are breaks when ESPN doesn't run the commercials they air on cable/broadcast. They run this annoying placeholder instead.

Although not for ten hours straight.

I hate Chuck E Cheese's we used to have pretty cool place in town similar with carnival and other games and while you were eating performing shows for kids but it was actually better. It was a real fun place. Chuck E. Cheese's swooped in and bought them out insisting it would be just the same or even better. Of course that didn't happen. It was crap. It went downhill getting worse and worse before closing down. All their commercials do is remind me how they ruined a really great place. Thanks Chuck E Cheese's.

My Uncle took us out there once, and yeah, that's exactly what it was like, a Chuck E Cheese for adults. I wasn't thrilled by the selection of games, but the food was better than I expected. Oddly enough, I see commercials for it and we don't have one in town.

I said a few months ago that I loathe the term "She Shed".  It sounds like something that would accompnay somone saying "When the women folk are on their monthly and all cantankerous, we send them down there to the She Shed.  They can come back when they're better."

I get that it was someone's answer to the "man cave", but there's just something so demeaning sounding about "She Shed".  I can't explain it - it just bugs.

I've been to Bar Louie once.  There is one in a casino about an hour from us.  It was OK.  Nothing special.  I did give them props for taking care of my husband meds - he left his pill box behind by accident.

I love me some Dave & Busters.  I used to be 3 hours from them in a few directions, but one opened up just an hour from me recently.  Mostly, you're going to find kids in there, unless you go later in the evening.  Their food is a bit pricey, but is actually pretty good, and once you get a card to play games, they send a lot of good coupons.  They're also really good about letting you use older coupons if you don't live nearby, and they were good about giving me some points on my old Powercard that would no longer read.  The only time I had a bad experience in one was when I was trying to earn points to win something in the gift shop that my husband wanted and I couldn't find anywhere else, and I was playing a game that was more for kids, and was easy tickets.  There was no one waiting in line behind me (I am cognizant of that and I do pay attention), but some mom came up to me with a little kid in two, griping that I had "hogged" the game long enough.  I apologized, but said she had not been waiting so I had no clue, and she proceded to breate me for hogging the game, and playing a kids game (which apparently I had no right to do).  She then proceeded to justify hogging the game for her kid.  I'd had enough of her mouth, I got a manager, and they quickly took care of it.

Perhaps.  I think some of it is that to me, sheds are purely utilitarian, and not a place that I would want to spend extended time in, no matter how nice it was "fixed up".  Call it "Lady Land", or "Her Hangout", or "Girl Grotto".  "She Shed" just sounds like you're being banished someplace not nice (which does tie somewhat in to what you said).  You don't even need to put a gender qualifier in front of it, or give it some trendy name.  "Tranquility Space".  "Personal Time Pod".  I'm not offended -  I just think it could be better.

I think the term was coined for the commercial - because it sounds so silly when Cheryl exclaims to her husband "I'm getting a chi chier she shed!"

I've never heard anyone else talk about a she shed.  And I think the commercial is hilarious.

Perhaps.  I think some of it is that to me, sheds are purely utilitarian, and not a place that I would want to spend extended time in, no matter how nice it was "fixed up".  Call it "Lady Land", or "Her Hangout", or "Girl Grotto".  "She Shed" just sounds like you're being banished someplace not nice (which does tie somewhat in to what you said).  You don't even need to put a gender qualifier in front of it, or give it some trendy name.  "Tranquility Space".  "Personal Time Pod".  I'm not offended -  I just think it could be better.

Agreed. I think the term "man cave" sounds dumb, too, 'cause it brings to mind, well...the image of cavemen.

Yep. Especially when chichier sounds like 'she sheer'.  🤣

I thought "she sheer" was what she was saying :p. I have never heard the term "chichier" before.

Same here. Only found out afterwards that she was saying the latter.
