I honestly cannot decide what I hate the most about this commercial, aside from the obvious fact that this dope is ga-ga over a stupid medication and is apparently devoted to it like most men his age are devoted to their favorite football team if not more so.
- The doctor speaking on the TV screen in what appears to be a poorly disguised newscast
- The autotuned "Oh yeah" in the background
- A grown man lying on the floor of his bedroom talking on the telephone (an ORANGE-colored phone no less) like a teenage girl in the 1950s
- The room decorated with collegiate-style "Crestor" merchandise
- Horrendous acting from the "dad" character - his wife and son look like they're embarrassed to be there, and frankly I would be too

Overall, probably one of the most moronic spots of the year, and easily one of my top 10 worst of 2013.

Really.  If you want to sell something and your target audience is middle-aged men, don't make the middle-aged man a complete merde pour cervo!

Why are we assuming the man is the husband/father?  If we accept that he's the woman's moderately retarded brother, the rest falls into place.

Is this the douchetard that gets overly excited about cholesterol drugs?

Clicky on the Blue Crestor Dot - it is the ONLY Crestor item that is BLUE and not 'University of Crestor' orange.
Yea...the 'Inquiring Mindless Need to Know!': Where did this household pick up lil'Mr. Fruity an' his darlin' doglette? Why can't they give him back? Maybe they can have him arrested and shot? Please? Today?

When Crestor first came out approx. ten years ago and started flooding our TVs with adverts, I honestly thought that the product was dick medication like Viagra or Levitra. Ouch
 
The reason is that it had all of these assholes looking through windows with this, "Gee, I wish I could get a woody!" look on their faces; no mention whatsoever was made about cholesterol or liver problems. Shocked

^  Yup.  Sometimes with these commercials, I know more about the side effects than I do about what the drug is actually for.

Does anybody remember the comedian who did a routine about these kinds of commercials?  The punchline was when he went to the doctor and asked for the drug, without knowing what it was for and the doctor said "Oh, so you have anal warts?"

The man on the tv does a perfect portrayal of an actor who desperately needs work pretending to be a doctor.
Also, that bit smacks of the reverse discrimination that tv commercials have. Young black guy can play a doctor, but only middle aged white men burglarize houses.
At least he's better than the weird doc from the old Crestor ad whose voice was obviously dubbed.

I honestly thought the touchscreen mirror was bad, but that is pure gold compared to this puke bomb covered in sh*t. I don't know what the hell that dad was smoking but he's sure a stupid asshole who sounds like he's getting his testicles squeezed by a vice!

C'mon, everyone!  There's no way that woman would've married that guy, nor had babies with him.  And he has a job that allows him to afford a house like that???  Sorry---not buying it.  That's simply not her husband.  I insist it's her "special" brother.  He lives in their extra room where he plays Candy Crush Saga all day long.  They call him Skippy.

Your comments are always like therapy to me, it makes me feel much better to see your input on stupidity like this and what you'd do about it. Big smile

I can't help but wonder what this guy's reaction would be if the news flash said Crestor was found to cause cancer and certain death. Yeah Crestor!

They still play this bad commercial on TV. "Whoo!! Go Crestor!!" I think not. Just saw it last night in a commercial break on Jeopardy!
