Commercials that Suck

Okay...   There are just some commercials out there on television that make me never, ever want to be involved with the product or services that they advertise.   I found three of them on YouTube that have been tormenting me so that I can share them with you.

First up, this free credit report nonsense.

I can't even begin to describe how much I want to blow my TV up whenever this commercial comes on.   Luckily I've developed a fast finger when it comes to hitting the mute button on the remote.   As if its not annoying enough that commercials come through TWO TIMES LOUDER THAN WHAT YOU'RE WATCHING, but when this commercial comes on it just seems to amplify that.   The only thing this commercial wants me to know is how not to be a complete idiot writing terrible songs.   Thanks.   What were you advertising again?

Actually, these all have to do with terrible songs, so here's the next one.

I don't even understand what the hell is going on in this commercial, or what it has to do with insurance at all.   Apparently theres some sort of crazy sub plot going on in these commercials but I don't care enough about them to find out.   All I know is that this song drives me insane whenever I hear the first two strums of the guitar.   The reason it annoys me so much because it sounds like a song that came out of the crap fest film Juno.   If you've seen the movie then you know what I mean, because I don't even know how to describe this genre of music other than irritating.

And finally, the third one that triggers my mute button pushing powers.

Okay, this one isn't so bad really.   But when you hear the line "I'm right here!   And I ain't goin' no where!" 8 times every 20 minutes, it starts to get really, really annoying.   I didn't even realize that it was actually for a Zune until after hearing it over one thousand times and finally turning my head to the TV to discover what has been causing me so much pain.   Rest assured, a Zune wont be in my possession for a very long time.

Now its probably some sort of irony or something that I'm talking about these commercials because they are annoying, since the whole point of commercials is to do something to make people remember your product.   But I don't know if I would be comfortable knowing that my products are being advertised by annoying the hell out of people... but hey, it worked for Billy Fuccillo.

It's good to talk about our problems, right?

I have the exact same reaction to the Free Credit Report commercial.

The best Fuccillo commercial is the one where he eats chicken the entire time, and then garbles out between wads of food: "I love chicken, we have free chicken on Saturdays."
