Best and Worst Commercials

Hey all, what's your favorite and least favorite commercials? I think one of the most annoying commercials are the 'Head-On' ones...if you had seen this one, you'll need something to relieve the headache it gives. I used to think the 'Cavemen' Geigo commercials were funny until they just making more of them...then they just got tedious and old like yesterday's paper. Any infomercial with food involved is usually pretty good..There's this one sandwich maker where they make the worst concoctions like 'stuffed soup' and corn dogs in a shape of a half-moon. I loved watching in horror the globs of reheated processed food units being passed off as convenient family meals. So much so, I couldn't remember the product's name, just the commercial itself.

HERE HERE!

It occurs to me the phrase "best commercial" is an oxymoron. "Funniest commercial" I can understand but 'best'?!?!?! To me the "best commercial" would of course be the nonexistent one..............lol

You know.............

There are signals inside the TV shows. One that says "Insert commercial here" and another that says "Commercial is ended, start program here". I know there used to be a VHS recorder that supposedly could automatically edit out commercials in any show you were recording by making use of these signals (ie: pause, resume recording).

What about a DVR that has that as a feature???

I'd pay for the pleasure of no commercials on the TV shows I like to watch and, I'd start recording them all and watching them either later that night or the next day...........lol

re: "I know there used to be a VHS recorder that supposedly could ...(make) use of these signals.

I could be wrong (and old) but IIRC, those VHS machines used to be "read" the lack of signal (i.e. black screen) between the show and the commercials, not make use of the data embedded in the broadcast.

For that reason (IIRC) you'd get a very brief snippet of the commercial until the device realized that there had been a blank spot, and then you'd miss the very beginning of the next segment of the show for the same reason.

Again, that is just my foggy recollection, not anything I'd swear as fact.

P.S. It's Hear Hear, not Here Here.

I like to listen to all the silly diclaimers especialy for different drugs. " if you have asthma take (whatever) and it will help you breath better than ever" Disclaimer "may cause asthma related death, high blood pressure, heart attack, nose bleeds, migrains, early onset alzimers (I know I spelled that wrong), low birth weight, obeasity, flatuelents, scabies, muscle pain, back pain, soar throat, loss. of vision, moderate hearing loss.

Hey all, I just thought of a commercial that I like watching...It's the one with the car where the landscape is completely made of people...the music is so happy and watching the people in costumes change so quickly as the car whizzes by is just fascinating. I don't tire watching it! Sadly, I remembered the commercial but not the product itself--looking it up, it's for the Toyota Prius. I read that the ad was made with 200+ people in costumes representing different nature scenes like grass, sun, trees, and etc. Then using computer-magic, they created more than a million people on the screen. Hmmmm...maybe they planted subliminal messages in the grass to love that commercial. It's like watching the ultimate stadium wave at a bowl game.

I'm with XPUser4Real on the Super-bowl commercials. Terry Tate Office Linebacker ones are my favorites, followed very closely by the Blockbuster commercial from two years ago with the guinea pig and the mouse. I howled at that one. The Budweiser ones are always good too.

It's interesting that you like the Prius commercial. It really shows that we're all different...no offense intended.

It came on during Monday Night Football earlier this week and everyone in the room, from the engineer (me) to the chick with the earing in her lip (a friend of my 20 something son) to my laid back, nature loving wife to my hard-working, hard-playing son all hated it.

Then the dog burries the bone. You see him loafing on the couch thought bubble above his head, he is worried about his bone. He digs it up and takes to a bank and puts it in a safe deposit box. Again at home he is worrying about his bone. He brings it home puts it back in the bowl and up comes the little red umbrella protecting his bone while he sleeps on the couch.

Now, with me, these types of commercials don't work.

A beer commercial that shows humorous, not-possible things happening is one thing, but I want my "serious" issues portrayed in a serious manner.

I can't see myself working with an insurance company that uses a dog getting on a bus and storing things in a safe deposit box as their ad campaign. If I can't believe the situation in their commercial, how can I believe any other claims they make about their services?

The talking baby commercials for E*TRADE don't do it for me either, nor do the "cartoon" characters in the Schwab commercials. Finances and insurance are not fantasy issues, they're belong in this world.

After all if they were as good as they claim to be, in this day and age there would be no need for the corny commercial panderring to 5 year olds.

If your interested in selecting a company or firm to do business with based on the commercial regardless of the commercial being in good taste or not, " A fool and his money are soon parted".

All any commercial is doing in the first place is no different than the panhandler that stands on the corner begging for money. They just spend money to do it that's all.

There's a difference between selecting a company based on their commercial and not selecting a company because of their commercial.

Let’s say I do all of my independent research and narrow the list down to a couple of firms. Then I turn on the TV and see a puking baby hyping one of the firms.

My first thought would be "Regardless of what my research shows, if their management feels that it's OK for their firm to be characterized by puking babies, then I don't want to work with that firm."

I agree stupid things placed in the ads will slow me when choosing a business or firm. Let's run with the research thing. Okay you have it narrowed down to these 2, low and behold the puking baby has decided for you agaist that firm. What was the other firm running in their ad? The silly green line that can't find a good cheese burger?

Personally I try real hard not to base anything on their ads other than entertainment value. I have come to feel that for the most parts the ads are making me out to be a mental midget. They all seemed to be designed to target children. How many children under the age of 10 are trading stock or buying insurance? Or maybe they are targeted at idiots. If this is the case then their marketing department has deturmined that most of the customer base they want to attrack eg: the majority watching, are morons.

So lately Walmart and Dove have been airing this commercial featuring 'normal-ish' looking women singing about their beauty flaws as part of Dove's 'campaign for real beauty'. I think the concept is laudable and I admire the message. However, after a hard day's work, when I turn on the tube, the last thing I want to see is a bunch of really homely women that just fell out of the ugly tree singing about their bug eyes and wobbly chins while shopping at a discount chain. On top of it all, the sad fact is that these 'average' women are like swimsuit models for Sports Illustrated when you compare them with the 'real' people shopping there captured on the peopleofwalmart.com.

That's a good one.

As long as we're reviving this thread, I'll mention one of the worst commercials I've seen in a while.

There's an ad for an Auto Insurance company showing an accident involving a deer on a mountain road. The driver walks to the back of his crumbled SUV and basically pulls a brand new SUV out of the back.

OK, I get that part - full replacement, no hassle, you get a new vehicle right away, fine. But here's the problem:

The couple gets in the new SUV and drives away, leaving the old one in the middle of a dark, curvy mountain road.

You'd think that an insurance company would have a little better sense of "safety" than give the impression that you can just drive away and leave a disabled vehicle blocking the road.

The Old Spice commercial cracks me up...It has this muscular guy who talks into the camera who tells the ladies to look at him and then their husbands while he does things that men think women love like riding horses and similar romantic nonsense.

I always thought that for any drug commercial that says "ask your doctor about ________ to see if you can start using it today!" you should automatically ignore it. If you have to ask your doctor, is it really going to be safe? it is one thing for a doctor to prescribe something for you, but another thing to ask him/her if you can use it instead of what he/she prescribes.

I like the ones that say you should ask the doctor if it is safe to have sex before taking them. And the one that says if your errection lasts longer than four hours call your doctor. Does anyone call the doctor in this case or do they just try to get all the use out of it they can?

Too funny, likelystory! And what do you suppose the doctor on the other end of that line is supposed to do to help with that situation? I can only imagine what would happen if it was a weekend and the doctor's offices were closed and the practioner would have to dispense with the cure over the phone..."Download an episode or two of 'The Golden Girls. If that doesn't work by the first commercial break, surf the Net for pictures of Roseanne Barr. But be careful, prolonged staring at Roseanne's pictures may include painful side effects including dizziness, nausea, eye strain and permanent ED."

There's this car commercial where there is animated snow boarding that I think is cool. Lots of car commercials are boring, but this one stands out in a good way I think.

the first of the head-on series of commercial were absolutely useless due to the fact that all it said was, "Head-on! Apply directly to the head!" repeatedly. I had no idea what it was nor did I care.

First of all if it last more than 4 hours I am calling the Ginnus Book of world records. How about the ones that have so many side effects "even death" that you want to simply put up with the deisese.

(S)He'd tell you to get to the emergency room immediately.

Priapism

A potentially harmful and painful medical condition in which the erect penis or clitoris does not return to its flaccid state, despite the absence of both physical and psychological stimulation, within four hours. Priapism is considered a medical emergency, which should receive proper treatment by a qualified medical practitioner.

The name comes from the Greek god Priapus, who was noted for his disproportionately large and permanent erection.

Complications

Potential complications include ischemia, clotting of the blood retained in the penis (thrombosis), and damage to the blood vessels of the penis which may result in an impaired erectile function or impotence. In serious cases, the ischemia may result in gangrene, which could necessitate penis removal.

We don't even want to discuss the treatment.

Thanks DerbyDad03, our resident poet and scholar, for elevating the intellectual bar once more. I learned something new today. If one finds himself it that situation, it's a very bad, bad thing...the word 'shunt' sounds scary and painful...And here I thought priapism was the term associated with the general anxiety disorder and spasms that occurs when the driver's foot is on the gas pedal of a Prius. Either way, both might require trips to the ER.

I worked at Western Penn the state prison in Pittsburgh for a while, we had a few inmates that had that problem. One of them I remember had an errection for at least several weeks because he refused treatment until it got extremly painful for him. A couple times I had to accompany one of them off site to a hospital to be treated. I wasn't a pleasant experience for me I can only imagine how unpleasant it was for them. Yeah I poke fun like everyone else after seeing that commercial but I pray I don't have to deal with it myself.

There are certain commercials where the jingle is so memorable, for better or worse, it gets permanently embedded in the mind. Chia Pets and The Clapper, Oscar Meyer, and Lucky Charms are just a few examples.
