I use the quote feature, but I delete all the text and pics and vids that are irrelevant to what I'm responding to. 
 
Sometimes when people quote everything, I don't know who or what they're responding to.

Can be a hodgepdge many a times. However, some of the funniest stuff has come out of those long winded pic and video overkill/overload poasts.  Have noticed, the American car commercials always try to sneak in at least a little leggage and other T & A even hippie liberal Bernie Saunders Subaru, with the Daddy's girl commercial. A soccer clad teen showing leg albeit one of them has a thigh high cast (subliminal for thigh high hooker foot and leg ware.) At the prom with a minidress prom getup that is close to showing some trim. And then when she's a college or young professional sporting the Ali Mc. Beal mini dress/skirt outfit. No problems with me on those counts. I guess most of these cars are boringly styled jelly beans so you need some young hotties to spice things up.
Falal dee da, I dream of a government led by Bernie and Hillary, I love the UN, I want one world government, I recycle my toilet paper and hang it to dry, I believe in political correctness and anyone that speaks out of turn has to hug a tree and get flogged for 24 hours. I love and dreaming of a pea green Subaru box, skinny recycled  unwashed worn skinny jeans and drinking organic goat nektar and may  I be blessed witn NPR round the clock and convenient drum circles I can walk and meditate to where we will sing koom ba ya.

Not sure if anyone has seen this one since we get different commercials in Canada, but it's the most annoying Chevy Focus Group commercial ever, as it contains all the things I hate in a commercial, with the added bonus of children. The bobble-head boy is most annoying, because he's 'pretty jealous' - and then the kids all say (in unison, no less) "Oh my gosh" Like "gosh" is a word that kids today use on a regular basis, even though I haven't seen the word ever used except in an Archie comic, or on reruns of Leave it to Beaver. not to mention when I first saw it, I though it said Clans vs Zombies Modern Warfare 2, but it said Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2, which I didn't know was even a game and had to google it just to be sure. Also, wondering (based on the diverse age group) are these the children of the producers and chevy top ceo's or a combined classroom out on a field trip to a chevy plant, or did chevy kidnap these kids off the street? Anyhoo, here is the awful commercial in it's entirety, you be the judge:

Is it just me, or are there something like 30 different kids in this video?
 
This commercial sucks.
Nothing about Chevy quality, price, safety ratings, or anything else.
The big draw is you can play video games in it.  Wow!

I HATE the one where they ask a bunch of tools if they want to try driving in a snow storm. A) It's not snowing. There is white stuff on the ground but who knows if it's a prop. B) They follow this ridiculous "obstacle" course going about 8 MPH yet they feel "confident" and "like the traction" PLEASE! Try spinning out in an ice storm at 40 MPH and tell me how great you feel driving that now dented Chevy that got hooked over a guard rail.

Provides stimulation for the children. Because with today's attention spans, looking at passing scenery is boring after 6.2 seconds.
Oh my "Gosh" is normal with generation-Z kids. As is the word "like" every three words. Valley girl at its finest...
Hopefully they use headphones/earbuds with the video games/iPads, or this will be a nightmare for drivers...talk about a nasty distraction with all of the game sound effects and the movies in the background!

So glad I found this site!

I absolutely HATE this commercial with every fiber of my being.


I am at the point in my life where I start screaming and cursing at the TV every time I see a "fake testimonial" to sell a darn product. How horrible is it that a company is trying to sell me something by creating a fake effing testimonial. I cant deal with this!!!

Hopefully this site will act as therapy for me!

Fake Testimonials, Welcome! This site acts as therapy for it's members. We all hate the dreck that is called the commercial. If you hate them like we do, you will be welcomed with open arms! Have fun venting about idiotic ads!

Yeah, as if this new generation of retards can't figure out how to overide this and turn the radio up, or just get wireless Bluetooth speakers. It still doesn't stop them from texting while driving. This generation of assclowns will kill more people in driving accidents than the last. The only thing to do is put small cell blockers inside cares that doesn't effect what's built in. I dunno.

My god, I noticed this insipid background laughing from the 'focus group' a$$hats in this ad last night. I never noticed it until I wasn't actually looking at the TV, just heard it as I was on the computer. I mumbled to myself, "WTF is so funny??"

As dangerous and annoying as texting is, I wouldn't recommend a cell jammer to combat it.
In the US, the FCC has a "zero tolerance" policy on jammers.
Each offense could cost you $112,500, even for a first offense.
If you own a jammer, get rid of it.

There are situations where I would love to try a jammer, the fear of getting caught and slammed with a massive fine is a bigger turn off. This happened a few years ago here in Philly.

I get this particular guys frustration, but he comes off like a total d-bag with no friends.

the ones with the small kids are edited like crazy. Everytime the camera angle changes, there's a totally different group of kids from the ones we just saw.

The one where they are only allowed to use emoticons is about the dumbest ideas to begin with. Then the part about the unicorn takes it to a new level of stupidity.
