    Wow, that’s a bad add, for the win.

    Actually, all ads are bad because they play them ad nauseum.

  3. Xerloq says:

    Ugh! I hate not being able to vote from work.

    Flo, from Progressive, desperately need to have an tragically unfortunate encounter with an umbrella, a jar of vaseline, and several dozen spatula-wielding General Grievouses on crack. After that, I might shop there.

    I don’t hate Flo, per se, but I have found myself wondering many-a-time how on earth she was elevated to spokesperson level. It’s just an incomprehensible choice.

    Life is so different when you don’t watch broadcasted TV. Between Netflix and Hulu I haven’t needed to get an antennae or cable so I don’t remember the last time I saw a televised commercial.

    These are all hilarious if you don’t watch them more than once let alone as frequently as you do during a broadcast.

      Precisely; I loved the Quiznos ad up there (especially in light of the followup versions they did with dogs, squirrels, etc.), but if I had to hear that five times an hour I’d probably blow my brains out… with a toasty $3 bullet.

    Whew. Finally got my vote in (home pc is down due to crappy compaqitis).

    Jeez, so many gawdawful choices. But at least I finally got to formally smack the otherwise erudite Ben Stein around for pushing those con artists at FreeScore. Oh, and I never want to hear about catheters, used or otherwise.

  8. IGNORE says:

    I’ve never seen any of those ads, just lucky I guess.
