Television Commercials You Hate to Love

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With this topic I would like you to discuss your favorite TV commercials that you love but also kind of hate. Please tell us why you like the commercial and why you hate it as well. When quoting someone please don't quote the video but only quote what was said under the video instead.

 

My first commercial advertises the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream featuring Suzana Grebenar.

Why I love it: Suzana Grebenar is a strikingly beautiful woman first off and second the featured song by Deluka is very catchy and fun to listen to.

 

Why I hate it: Suzana is either in her 30's or 40's and by my own opinion has absolutely no need for any kind of anti-aging cream. It has been proven by science that if you live right and eat right you will look younger and feel younger even past your 50's or 60's. This commercial just portrays an inaccurate natural aging process for woman everywhere.

What

 

That could never be proven, because "live right and eat right" isn't a settled thing. This just sounds like some nutty folk wisdom.

@esselfortium Why do you hate or like that commercial?

 

@Altazimuth Can you please elaborate or at least provide the link to the commercial?

 

@Grain of Salt I honestly believe that everyone is different. Everyone has different needs whether it be diet, disease treatment and everyday things that could either be bad or beneficial for them. It is up to the individual to decide what is best for themselves.

 

 

 

Here is another commercial that I liked when it first came on but according to the fine print that you see above you will have to pay $62,495 in order to pay off that $10k loan. The interest rate is 89.68% which is outrageous. This is defiantly a scam.

When I was growing up, that Sears air conditioning commercial was airing on Cartoon Network basically every 15 minutes for years on end, so I and everyone else I knew had it permanently burned into our minds and can still recite it word-for-word.

 

I don't know how to explain it more than that. I have a complicated relationship with the Sears air conditioning commercial.

I mean, eating healthy and getting exercise WILL make you feel better later in life, that much is supported by science at least.

@Altazimuth: One day we'll be able to show our age by looking back on a time when compare the market adverts weren't the meerkats :P

@Altazimuth Oh, Compare the Meerkat, I love those commercials. When I first found out about Baby Oleg I was like "What are these commercials for." Now I know. It's like those Geico commercials here in the states.

Compare the Meerkat is plain annoying, in my opinion.

 

The only good thing that came out of it was a moment on Mock the Week's "Newsreel" by Hugh Dennis (the foreign leaders one). At the very end, he's speaking as David Cameron - who's talking to some Russian (Medvedev?) - and says "simples".

I don't think this needs an explanation... It is wrong on so many levels, but that's why I think it's kinda hilarious.

 

On that theme, let's not forget this classic Citroen commercial:

Well I just remembered a Vicks VapoDrops commercial, I recall that I used to quote this one to family members. I am not sure if I hate it but I used to find it funny those many years ago.

Why I love it: Beautiful Ladies that's why. I can't be any more original than that.

 

Why I hate it: It's just another useless infomercial product. It is like a clip on tie but of the undershirt variety instead. What is the secret anyways?
