Thank god for DVR, or TIVO. Normally I get to skip all those horrible, horrible commercials and just watch the show, but every once in a while I get to watch a show, normally a sporting event, live and have to suffer through the hellacious commercials that come with it.
I thought about doing a whole blog dedicated to every horrible commercial I have ever seen, but I can not type that long, nor do I have the attention span to....Oh look something shiny!
Sorry about that, I am back. I decided instead to focus on groups of commercials that, when I see them, almost enrage me to the point that I want to jam an ice pick in my temple to end the pain.
- Jewelry commercials.
- Jared. These are even worse. I love how if a man "goes to Jared," he suddenly becomes freaking Don Juan. Are you kidding me? All a guy has to do is go to Jared and he is suddenly Casanova? Listen up all convicted rapists and sex offenders (because I am sure a lot of them read this blog) just go to Jared and get some jewelry, all will be forgiven and forgotten and you will be any ladies number 1!
- Local car dealerships.
- Taco Bell.
- Cavemen. This on the other hand was never funny. NEVER. I mean I get the whole message, "so simple a caveman could do it." But one commercial was definitely enough. What amazes me was that a T.V. series was formed after this moronic idea. Even after everyone had long started to hate the commercials and it was clear that this show was going to be a flop to anyone I ever talked to, it was done anyway. It didn't last a season. I hope all that were involved were fired.
I am sure there are more, these are just the ones that stuck out in my mind as I was compiling this list for the blog. What groups of commercials do you hate?
