I know there was already a thread on this...I tried to find it, honest!

Some of these business owners think they should be involved in the marketing process. In most cases, around here anyway, BIG MISTAKE!  I can't find the worst ones.  AngryAngry

This one drives me freaking bonkers!  This loudmouth, fat f**k and someone who I think is his son playing out his Jim Carrey fantasy.  Angry  You people don't know how difficult it is to live in this part of the country!

I bet those triple pane windows are expensive as hell, too.

My next door neighbor had his windows replaced recently with double pane impact glass windows. Not sure exactly how many windows he has, but he said it cost him $12K.

Been thinking about getting new ones for this place. Single pane with impact glass. Probably cost me about $6-8K.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

TongueI thought this was the original thread, but since it ISN'T, I get to re-post my favorite HORRIBLE local commercial from up near The Den (apologies - I know it is 10 years old, but they just don't get much worse and they sure don't make them like this anymoreWink)

I don't even know where to begin with the horrific local commercials around here.

This one is #1 on my sh*tlist.
Loudmouth sleazy car dealership owner - with his screaming "DO THE DEAL!" ads. There is actually a channel on my FIOS that literally plays his 30 min informercial all day and all night.
(One of many local car ads around here that are terrible!)



Local Forman Mills is a very close second!

Wow...just wow.  Between this and the (whisper) "Solid Core Triple pane windows" ad.
Yeah, Wisconsin local TV is seems like torture! I am so sorry. Confused

Nine years ago my youngest daughter was in college at Appalachian State and sent me these two gems that was really showing around their area (I actually LOVE these commercials and have theim in the 'Commercials that Inspire...' thread):

I don't have any of his recent commercials, but Mariano Morales' lawyer commercials just drive me up the wall. They are so stupid. A talking dog singing the phone number. Mariano vs. two cowboys in a western town...you name it, they air from morning till evening on Yakima TV stations. None of his recent ads are up on YouTube, probably so they don't get embarrassed!
KIMA has a stupid promo for Judge Judy where the weeknight anchor and sports director 'appear' on Judge Judy and show her 'proof' that people watch Action News after her show. Pffffft.
Another recent one that drives me up the wall is the Yakima Clean Air Agency - a couple of dorks dressed in cowboy gear in front of an obvious green screen dramatizing why they need to get rid of their wood stove. Instant mute! None of these ads are online either.
I haven't seen the Watermill and the stupid penguin in quite a while.

One thing I don't miss about living in Seattle is Pierre Money Mart and the stupid jingle that gets stuck in everyone's heads.

ThatNerdInPhilly: Gordon Chevrolet "All You Need Is A Pen"! Do all their vehicles come with a "Tiny Scratch"?
 
crainbebo: Mario Morales (lawyer) vs. two cowboys in a Western town. That reminds me of the old Mark and Brian "Big City Lawyer" skits.LOL

This place was built in 94, the windows are still in really good shape.

An outer single pane (storm) window and an inner wooden sash with 2 panes of glass.  The doors even have 2 panes of glass.  A new roof will be our next major expense. Cry

For the Pennsylvania Lottery, Wheel Of Fortune scratch off game.
Idiots singing that old 80s song  "You Spin Me Round "

This one has been playing for the past 2 weeks. Just...why! Angry

Nah, I don't like that one either. I still watch 'Wheel' every night, but 'You Spin Me Right Round' is a stupid song after a while. Speaking of, game shows don't really don't have promo campaigns anymore - remember their early 1990s 'Wheel is Gonna Get Ya!' promos? Jeopardy! did a bunch of interesting promos around the same time that the stations aired often...

Wellllllll let's see, off the top of my head... First we have this dope: Joe Askins. He is on the air CONSTANTLY around here. Big sh1t-eating grin on his face at all times.


More later, maybe. I don't know, I hate thinking about commercials.

Still better than hearing 'You Spin Me Right Round' Smile I've got an amusing Jeopardy! promo on a tape somewhere, where they use an Indian head test pattern to 'interrupt this broadcast' - 1988 I think?

On the other hand, I've just about had it with this awful jingle. At least 15 times a day on OTA TV. Prepare for a frigging earworm!! I now mute it every time and will likely not give them any of my admission or money this year. I've been to the Central WA State Fair twice since I moved here. It's the same s--t every year, just different '70s rock and '80s country has-been artists and bands. Same overpriced food, same hot tub displays, same...everything! The Monroe and Puyallup fairs are a LOT better than ours.
This commercial can suck it. AngryAngryAngry

https://www.facebook.com/CWAStateFair/videos/vb.163471206732/510443056094908/?type=2&theater

Whenever I get time, I'll try to upload some of the god-awful Mariano Morales Law Office commercials. A talking dog? Mariano's 'fantasy football picks'? (Fox 41 shows it a lot during NFL games) Get outta here with that crap! Angry And to think in the '90s when he opened the law office here, his ads were straight to the point - why you should use his law office if you have a car wreck.

Over in Seattle, we had to deal with 800-CALL-KIRK (Kirk B. Bernard) and Phillips Law Firm almost every commercial break between morning rush hour and the evening news...and like I said before, Pierre Money Mart. The stupid jingle can be seen on this 2009 compilation of ads taped off CW11 in Seattle (recently found on a VHS tape - Boston Legal reruns). It's the first ad in the break, and still used to this day!

I remember the Indian head test pattern. It was no longer needed after discovering that air time could generate revenue with stupid infomercials hawking worthless crap.
