Why is a 10 year old coaching her family on how to buy groceries?

I don't even understand it. Why did people have to wait 18 hours for junior hockey tickets?
And then they decided to randomly give him 20 coffees? What did he do with them all?

I hate that this ad is annoying me too, I still have the hots for Katy Perry so that's even more frustrating.
There is another line in there where I am sure she says "With affordary delivery"
That is not a word and it annoys me

The new Westjet radio ads induce rage in me.

after mindlessly tolerating this commercial for what feels like years, I finally clicked on what this part is. there's a single carrot on the rack behind her, so it's an empty fridge symbolizing your lack of food at home, thus why you need Skip. I hate to admit that I find myself in this situation and end up doing exactly what she says.

I don't mind it too much (fairly original IMO), and I thought the woman in the ad was pretty hot. I didn't even realize it was Katy Perry. What's with the dancing ice cream cones at the end though?

She says “when I’m ordering delivery”.

If it was a rarely played ad, I wouldn’t hate it but it feels like it is played almost every single ad break.

I believe the ice cream at the end is a reference to her California Gurls video with all of the candy and she is licking ice cream.

The lyrics also seem to work better on the longer named services. She has to stretch out the single syllable of Skip in a weird way to fit.








It's too bad they sold out to Just Eat. The Jon Hamm ads were better.

And then they open the box of donuts towards Crosby as if it were a briefcase full of money. Must be reflective of the only thing that actually happened in real life.

It definitely seems forced, as if they had to get Crosby in another ad before the end of 2022 as part of his contract ..no explanation why people waited outside (let’s assume it’s pre electronic tickets and it was playoffs).
And for all the puck bunnies that waited apparently 18 hours, there was only a few actually in the rink years later for the ad. It’s not he saved them from a burning building, or vice versa, but it was played up that way.

Another ad where he barely speaks; Horton’s isn’t getting lot of value for whatever contract he signed. Him and McKinnon are as awkward as can be, but it fits the Tim Hortons brand of being generic, forgettable while trying to wrap a bit of themselves in the Canadian flag.

Calum and Michael just need to STFU about their stupid engagement ring schemes. First Christmas, now Valentines Day. I can’t switch the station fast enough.

US pharmaceutical commercials are the worst commercials on television, bar none. "Here's a drug, look at how happy it makes all these fat middle aged people in this green, sunny park. Oh my goodness, one of them even caught a frisbee. Talk to your doctor to see if you still have the physical capacity to catch a f&#%ing frisbee by taking our drug."
