"Do you have any tile that looks as good as this hardwood?"

Augh. I will go mad if I can't remember what other commercials I've seen that chubby guy in before.

I cut the cord years ago so I only get annoying youtube ads now.

The worst of all is that they all seem to be Home Depot for some reason and its the same ones over and over and over again.

- The stupid one with the lady telling her husband he's not getting a jet ski

- The mindless one with the lady telling her husband he still needs to do the gardening

- The one where I want to punch the husband in the face for telling his wife that he was able to get a good deal because he was ready to "pounce" and he tries bargaining with the Home Depot part-time employee on an appliance

Now, I'm sure the only reason that this is happening is because Google is tracking my every move and I have been in Home Depot a lot due to doing construction for my business. I would never ever think of getting an appliance there, doing gardening, or whatever it was that led to the jet ski.

Flipping through the channels last night around 10pm and was watching a little bit of a movie on HIFI channel, they ran their commercials in a 5 commercial segment, first Tide (clumsy waitress), then Crest (fake mouthwash swishing), then the same Tide one, then a different Crest (i'm afraid whitening is bad for my teeth) one, then a different Tide one (pods are irresistible to children).

That went on for the half hour of the movie that I watched, so weird.

Maybe they owed Procter & Gamble a whole bunch of free ad time, so they threw it on late on a Sunday night during a long weekend.

Either that, or they cut a deal with P&G to buy any unsold time at an extreme discount and no one else wants to spend the money to advertise late on a Sunday of a long weekend.

Any Commercial that says: "Real People!!!!!!! Not Actors!!! Super Serious!"



The stupid is palpable.

The AW ones annoy me. Since they went all hormone free etc.... I find their burgers very bland. They were never really good but are worse now.

Advertising that they are hormone free just makes me think of hormones and injections and things everytime I eat their burgers simply because they have ingrained the association of their brand and this word.

It's like advertising your product is sewage free...sometimes you will just think of sewage.

I agree the commercials suck, but they have probably the best large chain, fast food burger out there.

If you use Chrome on your computer just download AdBlock and it removes youtube ads.

Yeah, but A&W probably can't legally advertise that it's food is sewage free anyways.

Another stupid car ad where the main feature is that it'll stop your dumb distracted ass from killing people. Can we also agree that 'Qashqai' might be the worst name for a vehicle ever?

The old timey song on the Home Hardware ad is driving me bananas after constant repetition.

Pretty much any Pharma Ad after hearing the list of fatal side effects. Ask your doctor if Homicidia might be right for you.

That awful GMC commercial about how being a good father is a failure unless you've got a nice truck. So stupid.
