Have you seen these new Hardee's commercials? I cringe every time I see them.

"I was driving and the only thing there was a Hardee's. I figured, ok, I guess I could just get some fries."
Or
"Oh Hardee's. Ewww, I never eat Hardee's."

At the end of them, they realize that Hardee's does have one burger that tastes ok. WTF? I don't see how this could possibly make people want to eat there.

Denny's is another one that pisses me off. "Denny's: It's a good place to sit and eat." Gee, thanks for the late breaking news. I thought it was a strip joint.

Wachovis securities (or financial services or whatever) drive me INSANE!!! I literally have to change the channel so I don't start yelling at the TV

Worse than the Wizard of Oz M&M's tie in? I THINK NOT!

No, no, no. Hardees ads suck, but the WORST are those check-to-cash places that advertise how they're there for you, and want to be blah blah warm fuzzy blah blah warm fuzzy.


Crooks.


Ok, they're not crooks, nobody forces anyone to use those places, but I just have a hard time justifying predatory lending.

Yeah. I have to be careful about cleaning guns while watching TV because that music makes me want to kill myself.

Ooo, I forgot about that one. We actually studied that one in a communications class I took last year. It's so bad because "Can you hear me now?" is the first thing you say when you lose signal. So, it looks like the guy is just walking around trying to find a signal.

Well I'm one of those neanderthal people who will start speaking loudly assuming it will help the signal even though it really won't actually help.

No it's a natural assumption. What you're doing is adding more thrust per squeeze, but electronically. I think it helps.

I liked the M&M OZ ads. Oh well, different strokes.

I hate the di-tech ads.

I love when the Iraq GI's will say that they really miss ads after 12 months of Armed Forces TV.

The best most creative commercial on tv right now is where it seems like a hair loss commercial and then the doctor says he just saved a bunch of money on car insurance. very funny.

Yep...I only figured out recently that the idea is that he GETS a signal wherever he goes.

TERRIBLE idea for an ad campaign. And they've stuck with it too.

I hate the Ford slogan, "If you haven't looked at a Ford lately, look again."

I get angry every time I see the commercial for SafeTouch home security systems, where a burglar breaks a window, and the husband fearfully clutches the children in the hallway while the woman takes charge and gets on the horn with the security company.

You friggin sissy!! Grab a gun or fireplace poker or SOMETHING and go take care of business!

That is typical media propaganda with the sole intent to "pussyify" the American male. We aren't supposed to be aggresive anymore, passive is much more chic.

My kids laugh their asses off at commercials like that. The second time they see them they "shoot the bad guy" when he shows up.

I don't know where they get it.

That new Miller Beer commercial with the guy debating the Horse is pretty good. "It's a Travscamockery!!!".

Also that Dairy Queen one with the front loading papoose pack where the toddler nails dad with a kick to the nuts and a head butt makes me laugh!


Any of the Wachovia or Geico commercials suck really big ones in my book. And that annoying British-accented gum chewing snooty 60's retro commercial look makes me want to change the channel.

The latest ford commercial where the guy parks the focus and it starts that whiny screeching tirade about it is meant drive and how great it is. I swear ford commercials have done more to turn me off to ever consider buying another one.
