In general, we need to locate the Geico marketing people and have a public flensing.

I still larf at the husband one. Completely agree with everything else though, except Springsteen should be #1.

to be fair those are the only seven commercials that have aired during the TBS post season.

How about the NFL and NFL Network with that farking "This girl is on FIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRREEEEE" Citi commercial. UGHHHHHHHH ENOUGH!!!!!
 
2012-10-18 09:13:09 AM
and for like three years the NFL ran the same damn commercials OVER and OVER for their merchandise and ticket brokerage services. "Opportunity, opportunity. Knocking at your door" and "You don't own me" Like an angry old man whos newspaper was late I actually complained to the NFL PR Director on Twitter and he responded "we are showing new commercials starting this year" and then about four years ago there was a Peyton Manning commercial with him standing in a hallway with sharks circling around him. Drove that into the ground. Speaking of Peyton, the farking two million pizzas is being driven into the ground too.


/thanks Subby I have a headache from all the complaining now

"Y'know Ronnie, folks who switch to GEICO and save money on their car insurance sure are happy."
"And how happy are they, Jimmy?"
"Happier than a FARKer ripping on horrible commercials like this one."

I always think of the same thing when I see that commercial: SCUMBAG JOHN SCHNATTER -- COMPLAINS ABOUT PIZZAS COSTING 15 CENTS EXTRA TO COVER HEALTH CARE REFORM; GIVES AWAY 2 MILLION PIZZAS

That one almost offends me. "My girl dumped me, so the only way to make myself more marketable is to spend a lot of money on a credit card to go to a museum (allright), take a special cooking class (you could spend a lot less money and learn more from someone other than Miss Tits-and-Teeth), and getting backstage passes (Oh, WOW, you got backstage passes to a concert? Are you trying to impress groupies?)?"

No, that one goes all the way to offensive for me. You're boring unless you use this credit card? OK, yeah, stick with that campaign.

It offends me because the dude was obviously boring. Someone finally had the nerve to tell him that he was a boring farker and so he goes off and does all this shiat to make himself less "boring." At the end of the commercial he says "Who's boring now?" Wow dude, way to prove her wrong! Dumbass should be thanking the biatch for helping him turn his boring life around.

I couldn't believe that I'm hearing in-game ads for Bleacher Report. How does that site turn a profit, much less have enough to advertise on playoff baseball games?

The Gallagher commercial amuses me on a level that only someone maniacally smashing fruit with an oversized mallet can reach.

The rest are annoying, yes, but pale in comparison to that one Galaxy S3 commercial that begins with that guy counting on his fingers, "Have you ever had deja, deja, deja, deja, ...deja vu?"

If I did have a desire to purchase their phone before, I would not now, and that ad would be why.

I think Apple's ads are doing a bad enough job as it is without mocking potential customers. Ovate earplugs and panoramic photo capability? Wow. Maybe it can tell me if its raining?

They have been owned by Turner Broadcasting since August.

I have an overwhelming urge to punch the TV everytime that commercial comes on. At least the first part - I can stand the rest of it, but seriously, whoever wrote the "deja deja deja" part needs to be pimp slapped.

The campaign by Taco Bell is just plain dumb. They're trying to make their image more upscale to compete with the likes of Chipotle and Qdoba. Nobody's going to buy it, though. Just admit it, Taco Bell: you've successfully occupied the niche of low-end Tex-Mex fast food for 30+ years and it's been profitable for you. Embrace it, stick with it, and don't ruin it by diving headfirst into a battle you can't win.

Maybe they're trying to replicate the McCafe competition with Starbucks. From what I've read McDonald's has actually been successful in that endeavor. Anyways, TB's best campaign was fourth meal. Now I know if i need a fix and its 11:00pm, then there is a last cheap resort.

I guess. But even then, it's not like McDonald's is abandoning the Big Mac, and they've done great with the dollar menu. Coffee is ridiculously cheap for all restaurants to procure. I still think the suits at Yum! Brands should read The Innovator's Dilemma, which argues pretty persuasively that companies can kill themselves by chasing higher margins and trying to go upmarket. The "Fourth meal" is what Taco Bell is and always should be.

If they're the same people that thought "Yum!" was a good company name I doubt they do much reading.

Exactly, Its not in their one of the core principles (I think thats the term from my marketing class). It's not going to be super successful or anything, but now when a group of friends wants to go there drunkenly and that one "health conscience" person comments on how bad it is for them, then the rest of the group can say that they at least have that bowl thing for that biatch.

My mom got one of those, I think. I might think about getting myself one soon - this one is nearly 2 years old, the 8 key fell off (still operable, of course, so it's just a cosmetic thing), and the screen sometimes flickers whenever there's too much white on it. I'm cheap and lazy, though, so I won't be going out for one anytime soon.

How quickly Farkers forget the most annoying, overplayed sports-intermission commercial of all time.

When the company suspends the campaign entirely over annoyance/frequency complaints... you have unrivaled territory.
