Commercials advertising shows on a channel different from the one you are watching.

I'm watching 'The Blacklist' on NBC and catch a commercial for 'SIX' on History Channel.
Leaves me wondering about the relationship between NBC and The History Channel....

Indeed! You just have to wonder how much someone pays to get their commercial aired twice in the same break.
In the 60s, it would happen my accident, and I think they wouldn't get charged for the extra airing. Then companies realized it was effective. I'm betting they got the 2nd at a discounted rate, and maybe even do now.

Indeed! If you are talking about the same thing I see, they actually bookend other commercials. You just have to wonder how much someone pays to get their commercial aired twice in the same break.

Such BS. Self entitled biotch would rip him a new one and fire his ass for buying the wrong coffee.
Yea, and how the gofer says that they gave him "way too much" money for the coffee and he hands them back a buck and some change.  It's been a long time since a buck and some change was considered way too much money.

Putting serious commercials in between funny sitcom breaks. For example, Carla from Cheers was planning a funny and zany scheme. Cut to commercial break. There was an ad about badly abused and neglected animals including an animal with a missing eye and a severly malnourished animal all looking beyond heartbreaking. By the time Cheers was back and Carla carried out her funny and zany scheme, it was pretty hard to laugh after seeing that heartbreaking ad on badly abused and neglected animals.
Using nuclear weapons on problem people is not the answer, you psychopath!

Also, Keith Richards is a damn cockroach outliving everybody! LOL

Those Wendy's ads come to mind.

Oh how I HATE that one so f-ing STUPID! WTF is the point of that ad? To make a unfunny pathetic vapid joke we're supposed to crack up at!?

Or how about when someone says "to treat my moderate to severe..."

Either you have moderate whatever or you have severe whatever. You don't have the marketing line you just delivered.

What is truly idiotic (yet surprisingly enjoyable) is watching millenials whip out their cell phones between every single set of reps at the gym. 
It's like they are so concerned they might miss a tweet while doing 10 crunches.
 
Clearly, this behavior is an addiction.

Yeah.  I work with young people who, at every given opportunity, can be seen staring down at their phones.  Yesterday, a few were together watching videos of people eating hot peppers.  They thought it was hilarious.  I'd rather stare at air.

Pandering to millennials. Because, technically, I am one. I am one, but I also happen to loathe the stereotypical smug, spineless, trendy, fashion-conscious, smartphone-addicted, peer approval-obsessed, dimwitted and endlessly self-contradicting millennial cliches that appear in every single ad aimed at my age group.

It's not even that the portrayals are especially inaccurate. Sadly, they're all too accurate, apart from being overly sanitized (Because half the people in these ads would be slumming rich kids who think their coke habit makes them more "legit" in real life, not fun-loving yupsters looking for the nearest Taco Bell on their phones). And I don't identify with or wish to ever be associated with people like that. I despise them.

Other than that, I hate hearing endless talk of mobile devices, apps, social media, etc. I'm no Luddite, but I am happily mobile-free (Confession: I do borrow a relative's Kindle to look things up occasionally, or to play stupid gem games when I'm really bored, but that's it).

2. women with or talking about bowel problems
3. men with or talking about dick problems
4. vocal fry bitches
5. every commercial with "three word taglines" - "so you can", "i'm lovin' it', "get more done", ad infinitum

The trend that's been going on for some time now that the ad agencies attempt to be as foul or inappropriate as possible because their "data" says that it's the most attention-grabbing and that bad attention is better than no attention at all.

Any commercial that uses "The pecker bone is connected to the nuts bone..." Or, them bones, them bones with a dancing skeleton. That's so, like 1957 it's way too tired and worn out it's welcome.
I approve this message.
