Yes, she says "I"


"tie" makes no sense at all.

She does a add a bit of a "t" sound that I can hear. Like, she wanted to get money, too - so she was flustered and she fumbled on the start of her song. I love the old guy with the fishing pole. He's just plain evil!

These chocolate-orgasms are superior to the ones brought about the traditional way.



Ah, the excruciating intensity of the chocolate-orgasm, enhanced as no sex could ever be by the guilt of consuming forbidden calories. It's so exciting! And more shameful than any sex act could ever be - riskier than Jodi Arias butt sex, nastier than Teen Momstar porn, dirtier than anything the Westboro Baptists could launch a protest against - because a woman who eats even a single bite of chocolate might (gasp) not lose weight. She could even gain weight. And nothing could ever be worse for a woman than that.

That ad's been around for a while and the set up seemed to suggest that it was going to be a series. I've only seen the one though. Yet another misfire by the advertising firm? It would seem the sort of people who pay attention to fabric softener ads are more traditional, shall we say, and not appreciate hipsters like the Amy Sedarius wannabe and her sidekick from Glee. Yet how do you build brand loyalty with the young, when they probably just buy whatever product is on sale?


I'm pretty sure I've seen one where there is no intern and she's talking to a couple while sitting on the washing machine, and she spends a lot of time sitting on the washing machine and I think we're supposed to infer that she really, really enjoys sitting on the washing machine. Kind of like we're supposed to infer things about Jimmy. Stupid series.

...and I'm just so confused, because these very special moments are also marketed as stolen little rewards for yourself, so am I being sinful or treating myself well if I eat a single corner of a chocolate square in super slo mo? Identity crisis. Make it stop.

In particular, though, two chocolate ad people who really need to go away:

The Lindt "chocolatier" who holds up his *cough* whisk *cough* and looks lovingly (enviously?) at the chocolate that drips off its end. I just want to hit him. You haven't created a new particle of matter or a cure for cancer, dude, you melted chocolate. Now stop staring at your choco-ding-a-ling substitute and get over yourself.

Anybody, man, woman, werewolf or vampire who eats a York peppermint patty and...well, you know...the women are whoring over chocolate again. Was not any better when they featured a guy eating *cough*getting nasty with one*cough*, either.

I'm not sure what exactly the product is being advertised, but it starts with a man in a small, intimate group business meeting lead by that guy who started Facebook (yeah, I know, I laughed too), but that didn't bother me. The thing that bothered me was that he was at this meeting screwing around with his smartie phone instead of paying attention to the meeting! I was so focused on this rude asshole that I have no idea what else happened.

Everyone in the ad for some phone can go away, especially the snotty "Maybe they like fighting" cater-waiter. A brawl at a wedding? That scenario is so over.

One I keep meaning to post about is the AT &T U-verse one where the daughter (between 16-22) has invited a male over for lunch, but has apparently neglected to tell Mom he's vegetarian and Mom *gasp* has a deli plate of meats set out. They jump on-line, find an alternate dish for the guy- with 20 minutes until he arrives!

1) Why is the daughter not making/helping to make the food for her date/luncheon?
2)Is this young woman dating so many guys/similarly named guys that Mom can't keep them straight? Either way, the daughter needs to tell Mom these things well in advance- like when Mom is deciding on what to make/order.
3)Why did the daughter wait until twenty of to look in on what Mr. Vegetarian was going to actually put into his mouth?

Mr. Actionmage always chuckles at Dad's face; he feels the man's pain at not getting the deli plate of meats. It's a great look to the plate and back to the wife.

Another that needs to FOAD is the phone one where some idiot is saying that "we" have "the right to unlimited data." I somehow doubt that. It's a nice thing to maybe eventually get- communications packages that don't cost three to four digits, but no one currently has a right to that. Quit trying to stir shit up Sprint or whoever it is.

I know! That one is actually a little creepy to me, like maybe unlimited data isn't the only thing they feel entitled to. "We have the right to unlimited beer," and then they rob a liquor store.

The teenage girl in that commercial drives me batty, but I, too, love the silent yet oh-so-obvious confusion on the dad's face at the table.

I love that look the father gives as well. What if the young man had a peanut allergy, or an allergy to seafood (or was an Orthodox Jew), or had diabetes, or had high blood pressure, or (insert important reason here). Yes, teenage girls are often skittish (I guess--apparently, I wasn't), but a girl like that would likely have all her boyfriend's likes/dislikes already stored in her phone and/or memorized. And since she's so late in telling the mother, she should've driven to the grocery store to by an acceptable vegetarian substitute for the father (he could've gotten his 'deli meat', while it wouldn't have been as satisfying, but it would've been just as salty!)

Yet another commercial that seems to reward useless teenagers. (Women go through for this?! I'll stick to Cabbage Patch Dolls, thank you.)

Rav 4 Genie, I do have a wish - get lost.

The Surface Pro laptop commercial is very annoying, with the breakdancing, exaggerated moves, and especially the women with duck lips as they twirl their laptops. And do they need to play this damn commercial at least five times per hour, regardless of what channel I am watching???

And Chad from Alltel, what are you doing back on my screen? Hey, Rav 4 Genie, come back! I do have a wish for you after all -----

"Waaah! We're gonna be busy, bring in more business, and make more money! How can the boss do that when it makes me work harder than I want to? Waaaah!" I especially hate the one where he says he's gonna need help, so the boss comes to help and Mr. WhineyPants goes right into ass-kissing mode! Gross.

To the guy who whines to his kid about having to take his wife to a restaurant on Mother's Day. . . If that's where she want to go, suck it up and take her! That's kind of the idea. It's her day. Not an excuse for you to break out the grill.

As someone who's part Hawaiian, I'm straight up embarrassed by the Arby's loudmouth going on about King's Hawaiian bread. I would've loved it if the ad ended with the local guy muttering "Fucking haole" and walking away.

But what about the Charmin commercial that tells us we can use "4 times less" toilet paper?? What does 4 TIMES LESS mean? Mathematically, it would mean multiply it by 4, then subtract that from the original amount, which means we use less than nothing.

I've seen the KFC "I ate the bones!" commercial twice now, and that's two times too many for me.  The portly guy eating chicken at the counter in front of his children is so befuddled he must have had a head injury. 

 

How does KFC stay in business anyway?  In the 70s (I know, I'm old) KFC was sometimes tasty (finger lickin' good), but now it's just snappy breaded mystery meat.  Blech.

Fun Fact: KFC makes most of its money in Asia where it is wildly popular and seen as upmarket fast food.

 

I hate the "I ate the bones!" commercials. They're eating the things out of a bucket that says boneless chicken on it for Pete's sake. And do they surprise customers with boneless chicken? Didn't they have to go to the counter and order boneless chicken in order to get the boneless chicken they suddenly don't know is boneless? Makes no sense!

 

I also hate the DSW commercial with the pack of oh so precious models in oh so precious vintage outfits dancing oh so preciously to an oh so precious 60's song. It makes me want to puke. Please make them go away DSW!

I understand the confusion about 'eating the bones' if you come home and the KFC is already there. The guy in KFC who freaks out about "EATING THE BONES"  is a moron because dude you had to have walked up to the counter and ORDERED THE BONELESS CHICKEN!

 

They didn't just give it to you.

Also, you can't miss a bone in your freaking chicken.  Why the fuck would you think you ate the bones?  Why wouldn't you just assume that it was boneless?  It's completely asinine.

The McDonald's commercial where hubby thinks his wife talked to McD and got them to start making breakfast sandwiches with egg whites. Then, he gives her one and she takes a bite, and you can barely make out that she's saying "this is good."

Uggh. I HATE commercials where people are talking with a mouth full of food. Go away, lady. Go somewhere and eat your damn sandwich.

I could see people eating a sausage/hamburger/fish-type sandwich and yelling about eating bones, but chicken?  Unless these boneless chicken wings (or whatever they are) were made of the same thing McNuggets were made of when they first came out (I seem to remember BROWN chicken inside, but maybe I'm misremembering).  I could see getting a bone or two in those, but I don't see getting that in a chicken breast "wing".  But then again, we do have to suspend disbelief (or attempt to) to get through these stoopid commercials.

I don't think it's the same guy.  I HATE the guy that calls his insurance guy at 3:00 am!  And what the hell is that guy doing wearing khakis at that time of the morning anyway.

 

The wife is disgusting when she talks with her mouth full.  I wanted to gag.

Aw, honey, just shake it off.  I'm a Texan, and if I got embarrassed by every ad depicting idiotic people or situations that supposedly represent  Texas, I'd never have time to be embarrassed by the real idiotic people we keep electing to high offices and the very public idiotic things they say and do.  Trust me, Hawaii has nothing to worry about.
