And supposedly THIS commercial is supposed to be a reverse of that;
I fucking HATE this commercial. It's horrible, why would this ad possibly attract me to their service? I don't understand some advertising campaigns.
Also, commercials that insult my intelligence. I can't find them on Youtube, but there's a series of commercials where "real" people are just all of a sudden thrown in front of a group of hungry and anxious (press? media?) people all asking them questions about the car. When I see this I think "FUCK YOU FORD, I KNOW THEY'RE PAID ACTORS!" I just can't stand those "real" commercials they try to pass off as legitimate.
Lastly, and this also goes back to AT&T (I think,) but I hated those commercials where the phone would get cut off at a really in-opportune time, which would inevitably lead to some kind of awkward or bad response from the other person. There was also a line of these commercials a few years back. Just stupid. Same point as #1... I don't like what is basically "reverse-negative" marketing.
This can also include companies belittling/slandering other companies in a commercial. Nothing screams "desperate" like having to go after other companies.
I would like to redeem this thread/post with the greatest two commercials ever committed to film:
If you hadn't seen any of these yet, you're welcome.
