Commercials That I Despise...Grrrrrrrrr.
For the most part TV ads are entertaining, especially since the superbowl ad craze began anyway. However, some just, well, piss me off, and make me want to boycott the products rather than support them. I especially hate ads that promote consumer ignorance and/or play to the uninformed consumer, put down other companies, don't tell you what they are selling, are plain old pointless. Here are some of them... Apple - The recent ads with the Mac and PC guy just stirs up some real bad feelings. I'm a PC user, so of course, you can say that that is the reason why, but I've never held resentful feelings towards Macs because I always thought they were good computers too. They do especially well in certain areas. Now that Apple introduced these commercials, I am an Apple hater. I can honestly say I will never purchase an Apple product for life since they want to stereotype PC users so considerately. Pepsi - I am just bothered by the commercials where the Coke can gets smashed. I'm not sure why. Sympathy? I will go out of my way to look for Coke products now. Burger King - The one with the "bucking chicken" just irks the hell out of me. What is that? Not to mention the disturbing "king" dude. Volkswagen - That new one with the "fast" devil dude...disturbing and irritating. On the flip side, there are commercials that I really like...I'll post on those later.
