Or how about that Rephresh commercial? "After your period. After intimacy. After douching..." Seriously??

The "Cash-4-Gold" commercials.
For one, I'm tired of seeing them and two, are poeple really just sending off their heaps of gold hoping to get a check back based on what an anonymous stranger is telling them it's worth?

Maybe that's not how it works...the commercials annoy me too much to really find out. Lol.

I want to throw a brick at the TV every time one of those "natural male enhancement" commercials come on. Ol' Smilin' Bob is really grating on my nerves....as well as this other guy saying, "Yeah, he he, I'm bigger!" with this sheepish grin on his face. Ugh.

Another one is for JG Wentworth where all these people are yelling, "It's MY money and I need it NOOOOOW!" out their windows.

I can't stand the Restasis commercial either...the doctor's eyes are super dilated and it creeps me out.

All pharm ads, formula ads, WalMart ads...

oo oo oo That commercial from a while ago with Amanda Peet. She's talking all about how vaccines are these amazing things and how we need to give them all before age 2. Ya know what? Just because you're a celebrity (and not a very well known one at that) doesn't mean I'm going to listen to you. Go away.

And to go with those male enhancement pills .. I hate how that one girl keeps saying "That certain part of the male body". Ugh.

I'm sure I'll think of more over the weekend since apparently we're watching a ghost hunters marathon and then sunday is football .. bah

Speaking of yeast infection commercials, what about the Summer's Eve one where the lady is in a fitness suit and she's uncomfortably itchy and smelly?

I scream at the TV go to the bloody doctor already!

Don't spray perfume on your business! No wonder STD's are so rampant. We just hose down the ol' bits with floral scented lady perfume and we're good to go. Doctor, who needs a doctor? I've got Summer's Eve Spring Breeze odor masking crotch deodorant.

So fresh!

How about the one where the couple is outside in two separate bathtubs. Yes, nothing screams sexy to me like sitting in a different bathtub from your partner.

Oh but they have a comeback one now. "When is it time to get out of the tubs?" and then everyone says "When we're ready". It's Cialis' way of advertising their two different pills. Ugh. Still stupid though.

Oh, and along those lines, the one with smiling Bob isn't for natural male enhancement. It's for Viagra.

Nope, it's for Enzyte.

There is a commercial for some bladder drug where all the people and their surroundings are made out of pipes. It just bugs me.

I HATE HATE HATE the commercials for Always or Playtex or Tampax or whoever where they show Mother Nature arriving with a "gift." Look, It's your period, early. Blah blah blah. I hate how Mama Nature is depicted as a b*tch and how AF is something to be completely ashamed of. Oh, and "Have a happy period?" Yeah, buy a diva cup and/or use cloth menstrual products. That's a lot happier than dioxin, bleach, plastic and God-knows-what stuck to your crotch.

I despise the aggressive ad campaign by Wal-Mart. They have paid major bucks. They have at least one commercial on during every commercial break on every channel here. This from the company who has cut employee work hours and screwed their health benefits even more across the nation these past few months. Looks like they were saving all that $$$ for this campaign.

As for Restasis....the eyes are probably dilated for effect. Eyes dilate when we see something we like/love and that draws the viewer in. "Hey, this doctor likes me."

Hmmm ... you're right. I very much remember a commercial for a viagra or some other "don't worry, we'll make sure you can still have sex" pill with a guy who was smiling and everyone was looking at him like "did you get a hair cut?" "have you lost weight?" and then he sees his wife and they hug, like everything is okay now. They haven't even had sex yet!! WTH! I wonder what commercial that was .. hmm ..

But yeah, anything for "natural male enhancement" or "help getting an erection" is just wrong. There's no need for those commercials. None whatsoever.

2. has anyone seen the one put out by one of the big agro companies that is basically talking about how great HFCS is? the one I saw was people at a picnic talking about how stupid it is that people are avoiding hfcs- "It's corn! Thats natural!"
But it's just like sugar- it fine! Believe me...Stare into the light and repeat after me

Oh, i just thought of one. The AXE commercial I saw with a pig that seems to be thrown off of a balcony at a mall....nice perceived animal abuse there

As someone that's had an allergic reaction and gotten a RASH from such products, I agree with you.

That reminds me. I hate Axe commercials because they portray women as these weird bloodhounds that are attracted to men based on smell alone.

Oh, and the Body Fantasy commercials? They aren't as prevalent anymore...it's the one where a bunch of shirtless guys are playing a sport and a woman's voice is saying stuff like, "Hot Bod. Tight Bod. Hard Bod....I WANT YOUR BOD."

But it seems weird to me to be using a drug for glaucoma just to grow eyelashes. Even if you paint it on your lids, wouldn't some still get in your eye? Couldn't that cause problems?
Yeah, they found it grows lashes from glaucoma patients. How safe could a product be when you are only taking it for it's side effect?


I saw a commercial for a woman's electric razor. It would show really unkempt topiary and then the razor would fly by and the bushes were trimmed into a triangle, a circle, and a skinny rectangle. My DH didn't understand until I pointed out, "They are trimming bushes!" I'm embarrassed FOR that commercial.

Oh yes, the AXE commercials. I hate them because they also seem to demoralize women. I actually have told DP he's not allowed to buy their products. Of course, I really do like the smells of those products

I also really hate those "go meat!" commercials from Hillshire Farms. But that may be because I don't eat meat.

I saw one tonight that made me shake my head in dismay. It was a political ad aimed at people who are 65 and older.

"Tell Congress you don't want them changing Medicare to pay for government run health care."

WHAT? Medicare is government run health care. Honestly, if I hadn't seen it myself, I wouldn't have believed it.

THANK YOU!!! They keep saying how Medicare and Medicade is going to get cut to pay for government run health care .. umm, with government run health care, those programs - which are government run - wouldn't be needed.

I really hate the other one with the old people sitting around talking about how they can't get some life saving or life improving surgery because the government is too busy paying for abortions. Then they show the couple at a table with a baby photo next to them and the narrator comes on to say "our oldest generation denied care. our youngest generation denied life." UGH!! Government run health care would not cover abortions so stop spreading your lies!!!

Honestly, I hate all political commercials. I'm so happy Tuesday is done and over since it was elections around here for various things. Every commercial was political.

I am really tired of the Progressive Auto Insurance commercials with the woman with the lipstick, eye makeup in the white uniform. If I never saw her again, I'd be fine with that.
