There's a commercial that plays every commercial break on the station we listen to at work that's getting on my nerves. It's for Extended Stay America hotels and it uses the Twisted Sister song We're Not Gonna Take It. The commercial itself starts with the line "Now, you'll never have to make coffee in your bathroom again!"

HUH?????

First of all, who makes coffee in their bathroom? Secondly, do we REALLY have to have Dee Snider screaming at us that we're not going to take it? Thirdly, why does this commercial have to come on every freakin' commercial break?! The station just took a commercial and I had to hear this one twice!

All I have to say is that I'm glad it's not an ad on TV; I would have had to toss the thing out the window if it was.

LOLThat's what you get for listening to radio, Moochy!

...and, oh yea - I made 'bathroom coffee' for YEARS, when on the road. The half-fancy hotel/motels give you a little 4-cup brewer they put on the bathroom sink tabletop.
Fancy places move it to the outside of the bathroom - right next to the fridge-bar one probably emptied the night before - so, that's not technically 'bathroom coffee'.

I wonder if Extended Stay Hotels uses Stanley Steemer to clean their carpets.

i work for a radio station, and i have heard that ad more than a million times.  when i first noticed it, i was sad - i remember how much i loved that song when i was in high school - look where it ended up.  but you are right - it is played waaaay too often, like most agency spots.

This is the worst radio commercial ever! The whole "Make Coffee In A Bathroom" bit is priceless. LOL Other than that ridiculous punch line, the ad sucks!
