I've officially had enough of the groundskeeper singing some sappy ballad over the open mic on the field.

The radio ads for real estate agents- they all have buyers in waiting eager to snap up your house for above listing- are they really advertising based on being terrible buyer's agents?

The new Range Rover ad with the white wolf-y looking guard dogs who start out being fierce, but who seem to turn into submissive urinators when faced with a Range Rover and meekly allow it past a security gate.

Huh?????

In modern parlance the commercial might say "Nobody F's with me"

But they have a lambo- clearly classy

Clinton Portis' old car??

I can't stand the Wells Fargo ad with the Nervous Nellie in the backseat of a cab, freaking out about her friend's lost debit card.

My neighbor fishes almost weekly with Jhoon Rhee's son, they go kayaking at Riverbend Park and have been hammering fat smallmouth the past few weeks.

Surprised to learn that if you are woman and drive a VW you can immediately go from being a cube dweller to Vice President of the company.

The ones that really annoy the piss out of me are the Icebreakers commercials featuring Unicorns. Given that the people are women or minorities, the message I end up getting is 'If you're not a white guy, you better have a Unicorn to help you get ahead in life.' I'm sure that no one had that message in mind, but it's how it strikes me and it drives me nuts. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It also discriminates against Narwalls.

And if you're a VW engineer that does what your VP tell you to do, you can go to jail while they enjoy that executive privilege.

It's a radio and pandora commercial but that Tide commercial with the shirt shirt shirt shirt tomato soup screeching makes me want to smash my tv anyway because all electronics must pay for that abomination.

I wish he had used a bass instead of a white perch, but yeah, so I am told.

The BoA commercial I saw for the first time tonight is awful.  What is with the annoying bank ads?  I'm going to have to start burying mason jars in the back yard if they keep it up.

I know a few of you saw this last night during the game, I assume only those watching via FiOS. There was one of those cheaply made commercials for an estate planning lawyer that starts with parents telling their teenage kids that they are heading out, and that they've left money for pizza.  As the narrator explains the need for estate planning, you see a police officer arrive at the door, and after he's let in by the kids, everyone breaks down crying, implying that the parents have been killed.

I can't think of a worse commercial that i've ever seen.

The Budweiser one promoting designated drivers is equally bad, but told from the point of view of the dog left behind when dipcrap owner goes out boozing. Run that in the middle of I Am Legend, why don’t you? Smh.
