UGH they replaced the 80's "Jump" sound alike music to now to a really earsplittingly annoying sappy song. I'll see if I can find video.Angry

The PCH "house where dreams come true" jingle dates back to the early-'90s. I don't understand why they brought it back, it was bad back then and even worse now.

Would any judge convict me if I go to PCH with a semi automatic rifle and a couple clips of ammo?
The ad I'd really love to see has the GEICO Gecko being run over and flattened by the Energizer bunny.

I want to retch every time a Publisher's Clearing House commercial comes on! They used to bombard us with their constant mailings. (I probably could have fired up my longwood stove for a whole winter with their junk mail).
 
Once in awhile I would order a magazine or two, but because we were a low-income family, I'd usually end up faithfully (and meticulously) filling out everything that was required and sending it in without a subsrciption (because they also said no subscription was required to enter!).
 
Then their mailings started getting more and more rude. I can't remember the exact wording, but they actually started berating me for never ordering enough of their magazines. Finally, they got downright nasty, basically telling me that people like me were just excess baggage, and if I didn't order anything THIS time, they were going to cut me off! Well, EXCU-U-U-SE ME!!
 
I never asked for them to send me their promotional crap in the first place!!! Their whole scam is to take advantage of needy people who hope (unrealistically) that against all odds they might win the jackpot and change their lives for the better; families who order magazines they probably can't really afford out of guilt and/or because they're afraid that if they don't, PCH will cut them off in spite of their disclaimers of "no purchase necessary." 
 
So, as far as I'm concerned, PCH can take their commercials (including their irritating song) and sit on them and rotate! Angry
