  • Stupid Freakin' Commercials!

    Is anyone else sick and tired of that stupid Dr. Scholl's Gel Insole commerical where they have those lame rhymes using the word "gellin' "? "Hey, I'm gellin' like a felon." All I can figure is some past-their-prime execs thinking they are being cool.

    Then there's the one for I have no idea what, starring a guy who is apparently a basketball player, an Asian named Yao. The dialogue consists of "Yo"! "Yao!" "Yo" "Yo". Stupid.

    Switching channels does no good, because they are everywhere.

    I can't stand commercials. Maybe 1 in 5,000 are humorous to me (and I'm normally easily amused) and the rest are beyond corny.

    I've seen the Dr. Scholl's commercial, too. Puh-leeze.

              I hate the Dell interns commercials. I dunno which are worse, those or "Dude you're getting a Dell" commercials.

                I do like most commercials, but i cant stand the "Gellin' " one. i do like the "Dude, youre gettin a Dell." and i love the Yao one. but maybe cuz i think he's cute

                most of the ones i dont like are local ones, like for car places. and i also hate the late nite ones for life insurance, and car loans (no credit check!?)... oh, and anything with Wilfred Brimley in it...

                  Awww, give him a break. You will be an old fart well actually I guess the term is old fartess, yourself one of these days! [Wink]

                  Lordy I just HATE all car commercials. Doesn't matter if they are from local yokel dealerships, or the major companies, they all suck. And the hummer commercials suck even worse!

                    The Dude Dell commercials will always be my least favorite... Those commercials for Ovaltine also **** me off, that smug, arrogant chocolate shake vender...

                        That's hilarious!! I am about as far removed from a sports fan as you can get, excluding motorsports and golf. Even I know that that Yao dude is one of the most famous players in the NBA right now!

                        In fact, he's part of a current pop culture joke:

                        How can you tell that the world is ending?
                        The best rapper in the world is white.
                        The best golfer in the world is black.
                        The best player in the NBA is Chinese.
                        and Germany DOESN'T want to go to war!!

                              lol Nick, I actually wrote Herbal Essance, complaining about the commercial. Their attitude was "so what". I refuse to buy their products.
