Pet Peeves with commercial marketing.

Pet Peeves with commercial marketing.
Tell me the local, or national/international adds that make you want to pull your hair out.

One that makes me want to throw a brick at my TV is Mercedes add slogan, "The best or nothing". I really hate that slogan, because when I was a kid my mom did not spoil me with expensive anything. I got by with what she gave me. So no Mercedes, it isn't that you don't have a good product you want to sell, but if humans moved around prior to cars, and still got by, your adds come across as being classist dicks.


I got by in my parent's VW camper, and my mom's used U.S. post office mail Jeep. My entire life I moved around in a vehicle that was not over priced. So fuck you Mercedes. It isn't that your product isn't good, but that slogan makes me want to punch your narcissistic CEOs in the dick.

I hate those commercials that try to promote their product by insinuating you are too stupid to use a spatula.

Pretty much all of them.

I mute all commercials instantly but one that has particularly pissed me is is that stupid fucking Toyota commercial with the big, dumb, asshole who stars in it.  I will never buy a Toyota because of that.

I will never buy Tito's Vodka because the label says "Gluten Free".

No shit, even with beer, "low carbs" is as bullshit as when tobacco companies advertise "light". 

Don't get me wrong, if you want to drink or smoke, as an adult, fine. But don't hand me any crap that "Gluten free" or "low carbs" makes booze a vitamin.

I miss TV cigarette advertising.

The men were so manly . . .
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

What kind of men do they have for commercials now?  Fems?

Oh, and Mike Mendel yes, I get that you have a pillow you want to sell to America, and great that your factory is in America, BUT NO, I do not fucking need to see your adds every 2 seconds! Once you tell me, I am aware, I get it, but if you keep repeating yourself every five seconds, I don't want to buy your product, I want to punch you in the face!

The worst ads that I deal with now are the fucking repetitive 20 second ads that play in free mobile games. Right now there is this new one for a car buying app called "Fair" that plays with this annoying song. I'll never use that app for that song.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

PM me your email address to join the Slack chat! I'll give you a taco(or five) if you join! --->There's an app and everything!<---
