    I despise any personal injury attorney commercial and especially those employing "real people".

    Typically, these commercials begin with some semi-literate person stating, "after my unfortunate injury in the parking lot of Walmart, I was offered $500 as compensation (and, you can easily see that this is probably the first time the "real person" used the word "compensation" in a complete sentence). My attorney, Nasty McDirty, got me $500,000. Call him today!"

    I just can't stand ambulance chasing attorneys and their over-the-top television commercials. Somewhere, there should be a "true-in-advertising" announcement that states, "50% of the awarded compensation was paid to my attorney."

    :mad:

    That shouldn't have been filmed to begin with, much less put on the air. The only good thing about that commercial is Aaron Rodgers isn't in it.
    We have one furniture store that has a man yell the entire commercial. The volume isn't up, but it's seriously grating.

    People are acting like Publishers Clearing House people with flowers, balloons and a huge cardboard check are outside their door while looking at Chevys. Puh-LEASE! I wouldn't be that happy if they gave me a new Chevy. A Corvette would probably draw a smile, but the rest would be for sale immediately.

    Did you count the jewelry ads tonight? You now know how to put a smile on your woman's face, what are you waiting for?

    I love the ones where a wife or daughter saunters out on the front porch on a snowy Christmas morning and there is a new Benz in the driveway with a red bow around it.

    Any of those women's hygiene product ads where they pour blue liquid onto pads and brag about absorption. I've always thought they should hire Hulk Hogan as the spokesman and have him come in shaking his fist saying, "Ladies, dis stuff'll keep ya dry."

    Or how about the guy that buys two, not one, vehicles for them and she takes the pickemup? Or the kid that dreams of a luxury car and spends a tortured life of Christmas morning disappointments until one magic day? Oh Santa, you do exist!

    But especially the one with Jason Alexander, and that stupid line about the motorcycle at the table. It actually pisses me off to see such idiotic commercials.

    That's how I feel about so many ads, especially this year. Every version of Chevy ads has gotten under my skin. I can't help but think the same ad agency's finger prints are on all of them.

    Now to Verizon, could they find anyone more annoying? If I saw that dude, I'd get in my car and leave or lock the doors.

    On to insurance: I didn't mind Flo until they started putting her in different outfits like family members and all she can talk about is the joys of insurance. What's not to love? Bleed people financially then make them jump through hoops when they actually have a claim.

    You don't have to be married. I bait a trap out in the front with jewelry. Haven't caught me one yet but I think I gotta get the real deal and not costume jewelry that I traded a little girl trick or treatin' for. Women know. You can fool them when they're young with a lightbulb in an oven but they know jewelry.

    The problem is exacerbated by the number of times they have to expose them to achieve the ratings points the agencies require. Live sports programming has a lot of commercial time available and not as many takers so we're seeing the same ads over and over.

    Time shifting by the audience has made live programming more desirable which is why we're seeing so much more of it. I still haven't mastered the art of recording the game and starting to watch it 30 minutes later and ff through the ads. I forget that I have recorded it. But I can't remember everything. I have to remember where the TV is and if I am really lucky, the remote.

    I'm sure it doesn't help that Otis moves the remote every time you look away.

    We'd prefer a four carat fake over a 1/10th carat real stone. Make sure the band is solid gold (14k minimum) and substantial. Not that we're paying attention. It's the thought that counts and we know cheap thoughts when we see 'em. :grin:

    This doesn't scare me. What scares me is that you knew this in the 1st grade.

    Ah yes, kindergarten. Taught by trained gemologists and sponsored by local jewelers. (We got a jeweler's loop when we graduated.)
