I like the Chantix cold turkey. I think he is so cute and human-like. The St Judes commercials with the kids is sweet...the first few times you see them, but now they are replaying it over and over and over....I find all other commercials disgusting and offensive and change the channel or mute them. I never buy a product because of the commercial, but there are many things I won’t buy due to their offensive commercials.

Has anyone seen the ads for Knix waterproof underwear?  It's got women in it who talk about the reality of sweating, bleeding (during their cycle) and bladder leakage.  One of the ladies in the new ad says something about how fresh her underwear smells at the end of the day.  I guess if you feel compelled to smell your underpants at the end of the day.....

 

I know it's a fact of life and these things happen.  I miss the days when there was some sense of decorum in advertising.

I laugh at the Allstate, Geico and Liberty Mutual commercials. Mrs Emu cracks me up.

There are 2 that irritate me because they are inaccurate. The one is the little girl who says, just look at these dimples, when she has none. Do the writers/casting people know what simples are?

The other one is the Cadillac or Buick commercial that says Everyone has a crew, a slo motion, non blinking crew, or something like that. That is just stupid because we don’t. Or, maybe I am the only one without a crew walking around with me everywhere I go.

I was thinking the same thing....also the Pharmacuetical commercial about women with breast cancer that's spread and the drug might help them live a little longer....let that info be discussed between the patient and their oncologist and doctors, and iI'm sure the medical team is aware of any drugs that would help the patient....really, getting the news from a commercial---more like a Pharm Co looking to make $$$$ SMH!!! .....  It brings very sad memories regarding a friend of mine that passed away.....
