    Now that the election is over and we're no longer bombarded by the endless please of "Vote for Me!' we're back to the "normal" TV ads.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but there are some that absolutely drive me up the wall! Not just the ambulance chasers but for some products and services.

    I guess it depends upon where you live.

    Me? I'm in an area with Cox Cable service and they've got this new ad for "bundling" - having phone, internet, and tv service together. They have this idiot screaming "bundling" and making a total arse out of himself.

    Are there any that drive you nuts? If so, share them with us.:confused:

    I hate the ones where they are peddling tax relief. "Are you 100k in debt to the IRS just call us and we can settle for pennies on the dollar." How do you get 100k in debt in the first place? and are these the small business owners that need a break?

    To me, they are best ignored especially the ones that are over played. Usually there are probably just one or two commercials a year that I think are worth paying any attention to.

    God bless you always!!! :) :) :)

    I hear James Otto is a viable commercial product.

    Once in a blue moon I find some commercials funny, even more rarely I find myself interested in whatever it is they're selling. 95% of the time I completely and totally tune them out/change the channel/leave the room.

    The Snickers Peanut Butter Squared ads with the sharks is among my all time favorites...."Eat both squares, please....."

    My current favorite is this from the California Milk Advisory Board :



    *
    I Detest Progressive commercials.

    I hate the drug ads.....but some are unintentionally funny....."If you've suffered a heart attack, kidney failure, liver disease, or DEATH.....please call this number..."

    How in the bloody hell are you supposed to call the number if you're DEAD ?
    :badgrin:
