1) There are many commercials for 3D plasma TVs and I guess the ad guys that make the commercials are painted into a corner as what can they do other than SHOW STUFF FLY OUT OF THE TV?!?!?
2) Snack food commercials are basically all Wile E Coyote skits. Some guy sees someone with a snack food and he does all sorts of dangerous things to get it...but it's fucking half-eaten already and a new one costs 75 cents.
Now I've been out of North America a while..but I know they still do this shit in commercials.
I hate to even mention it, but the PF commercials just started rolling in my area. My wife, who doesn't even know the deal on PF, was like 'what the fuck was that all about? Do they want you to join or not?'
This. If you don't know what he's talking about, thank your lucky stars. They are corny-ass, low budget mockeries of the military and cinema. I mean, cracked eggs with faces on them to illustrate how important wearing a helmet is? Really? I guess the entire military is 5 years old.
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.
