These piss me off too. Especially in the one where they have little faceplate name tags of all the games going on and the dude hits a button to extend a particular game. It always makes me mad, because if you were really going to have that set-up you would make it where you could switch the names around easily. But nope, at BWW, you have to make new little face plates every week.

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

I think the ones that piss me off the most are local businesses that use their kids in advertisements. Generally, doing something they can't do well, like singing or dancing. And then they think it'll be more cool if they just get all their kids friends to be in it also dancing and singing.

Here we have a secondhand clothing store that did this with like 5 13 year old girls singing, "Downtown" and an orthodontist office that has like 4 17 year old girls singing a song of their own making about going to the orthodontist. The latter one was apparently such a hit they decided to make a remix version and new commercial.

There is also some restaurant here that has a 16 y.o. piggy who is the chef's daughter as the lead person on the commercial. She comes off as very dour and unlikable (probably why she had no friends join her in making the commercial) and the food looks terrible. Lived 1 block away for a year and never went there. I won't either, until Gordon Ramsay comes in and does a makeover.

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

Good point diddy. I don't trust anyone who parades their family/kids during a damn business commercial. The Brown Hand Center commercials might be the most heavy-handed egregious example of this that I can think of.

I mean look at this ****ing *******. His trophy wife looks like a zombie who obviously only likes him for his $$$$$$$$$$$ and willingness to give her a bunch of toy kids. Then his kids look at the guy like they barely recognize him. Probably b/c he works 80 hour weeks and is out chasing tail or God knows what. And he taught/forced his "little girrrrrrl" to say that on cue? DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE

They used to play these a lot in my market and the good news is they have subsided a bit over the years.

EDIT: Holy **** I just read the youtube comments and apparently the guy beat his wife and stuff. LOL. No wonder why I haven't seen these things much lately. So basically my impression of him was 100% spot on. If the youtube comments are to be believed.

SGT RJ's post is so full of epic fail. The King, the taco bell in purse and the new Old Spice campaigns are all brilliant. Creepy King is one of the GOAT campaigns - esp the NFL ones.

This post makes me sad. That anyone could like those commercials is unfathomable to me.

grunching most of the thread, but my most tilting now is the cell phone flash mob one. I want to murder everyone involved.

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

I'm shocked by how many people liked the King commercials. Then again, since I'm assuming this site is swarming with the same demographic that they were targeting, I guess not.

You guys go ahead and enjoy, but you should probably know that anyone not a guy aged 14-25 thought those commercials were atrocious. Same with the bacon in the purse. I've got some Old Spice for you.

That one makes me want to stab babies because the flash mob got moved to 1230 but everyone is there already at 1200, so why was it moved? Is there some super huge douche who is key to flashmobbing that couldn't be there until 1230? stabstabstabstabstabstabstabstabstab

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

I have mixed feelings about the flash mob one. The premise is annoying, but something about the dorky thumbs-up he gives as he says "Got it!" and the pitying look the chick gives him at the end make me like it somehow.

I guess I never really noticed the trench coats. It seems like it would be funnier if he embarrassed himself in front of non flash mob people tho

I can never sing the jingle quite right to fit in the extraneous "s". Tilts the hell out of me.

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

I guess this guy is a really big car dealer. I heard he used to have a bunch of dealerships in NY state but now he moved to SW Florida and these commercials are on all the time of him saying "ITS GONNA BE HUUUUUUUUUGGGGGEEEEE!!!!"

Here's some annoying examples.

Never seen him but that guy would be like 80% less annoying if he didn't add the "JAA!" at the end of each "Huge". But that "JAAA!" sends him over the edge. All local car dealership ads are 100% AIDS except for the Mexican ones which parade hot women in tight clothing.
