View Full Version : Dumb COmmercials

I am wondering what is the dumbest commercial you have ever seen?
-Quilted Northern The commercial with the lint brush I consider 100% pointless. Does it matter if they get a little lint on them? I mean if they take baths wouldn't the lint get washed off.

I don't like any wall street journal commercial. they are so stupid and pointless.

08-12-2001, 09:26 PM
i think most all advertising-related commercials suck, becuase in 30 seconds you can't help but resort to insulting stereotypes to sell goods/services.

i hate the gieko(sp?) commercials who gets the car insurence and the lizard mixed up?!?!?!?!

08-12-2001, 10:00 PM
"I am a gecko, not Geico!" I hate that commercial too, they play it way too often!

08-12-2001, 10:06 PM
The Nitro commercial! hehe jk :)

That quilted Northern one is so stupid! I think they have a new one, which is also dumb...Then again, it's so dumb it helps you remember the company, which is their goal.

Thought of another one...the Staples commercial where the dad brings the kid in and is dancing all over the place, while the kids look pissed off. It's funny the first time you see it, but then they played it to death, so now it annoys me.

All these commercials for cell phones and telephone companies in general. Very few of us don't have a telephone, we DON't need those commercials. Some of us don't have a cell phone yet, but EVERY commercial for a cell phone promises the EXACT same things. Stuff about crystal clear calls, stuff about minutes, stuff about rolling, stuff about whatever. Those are really annoying.

Te one that used to go when the lady asks "Do you have a cellular phone?" and some rich guy goes "why yes, do hurry up with your call though" and then the lady goes "well, so do I ahhahahahaha"

The car dealer commercials and the amateur commercials. Amateur commercials are actually kinda funny, everyone with the fake smile...and one here even has a really bad singer doing the slogan. But they advertise cars and car dealerships wayy too much!

08-13-2001, 09:31 PM
I can't believe no one has mentioned the Money Tree commercials. Does any one else get those? Those SUCK! I hate that stupid caterpillar, he is so annoying. Talk about the weakest advertising campaign in the world.

I also thought that the Taco Bell dog was funny for the first two or three of the ads he was in, and then that got old fast.

I overheard another commercial I think is awful TWO WORDS ......MS. CLEO This has to be the worst one. (why did I not think of this at first?) I wish they would take her off.

All the commercials for Bryers(sp?) Dreamery Ice Cream. I hate the whole "pig out on ice cream while making abnoxiuos noises" approach.

I hate those Anti-Tobbaco Ads. I mean we all know tobbaco kills people but must they keep telling us that 24 hours a day. During the whole commerical all they do is bash the tobbaco company, what a waste.

I think they NEED to be pounding the fact that smoking is bad into our heads 24 hours a day because people still start smoking. Once they stop, the ads can stop but, they need the ads IMO.

Did you know most of those commercials are put out BY the tobacco company? I think they have to, by law, put out anti-smoking commercials. I find it quite funny, actually, as I am very against smoking. It's hilarious that the tobacco company has to put out anti-them commercials! :)

SFOG's commercial-that song was just annoying!
VisionLand-Since when does Rampage have a steel structure?
Geiko-"Ah Mr. Geko, you want to change your name because people get you confused with Geiko, who can save you up to 15% off auto insurence(who talks like that in real life)What would you like to change it to?"
Geko:"Komodo Dragon please!"(licks his eye)

i agree visionlandlover, i hate those geiko commercials. why does the gecko have a british accent?????????

01-01-2002, 09:58 PM
The Ms. Cleo commercials

01-01-2002, 10:21 PM
actually the tobacco comapnies never go anti-smoking, they just go anti-somoking for kids.

01-01-2002, 10:29 PM
We have two very bad local commercials one is for Appliance direct 'the worlds largest appliance showroom' and scratch and Dent world. Basicly the commercial has some guy yelling the same thing over and over and over and over until you want to grab a brick and chuck it at the TV screen

I too hate those Geico commercials with the stupid Gecko and Geico crap. It's not the least bit funny and they play it all the time.

01-02-2002, 07:09 PM
I hate the Oral B commercial that goes something like:
"Did I ever tell you I worship each and every one of your...bicuspids?"
"You have a mouth so free of plaque, it makes me weak in the knees!"
Then an announcer babbles about Oral B's super toothbrushes.
"Oh Gerald, you have the gums of a GOD!"
Then they kiss.

Also, the Concorde commercial- "How did I get the name Savannah?"
"Well, that's where you were concieved."
"How did she get the name Concorde, then?"
The girl looks down and realizes she's sitting in a Concorde.
(Announcer babbles, then says) "Some just like it's roomier interior."
The mom then says "Concorde...Massachusetts, silly!"

And- the lowfat frozen foods "Simply (something)" where the guy wails "Lady in RED"

Yup- she is one of the worst! Oh and a word to the wise- NEVER go to her site- I did that one day and I get like 2 emails a day saying she has good news for me!:rolleyes: Can you say BLOCK!!
ANYWAYS~ the commercial I hate is the TEMPO WIPES commercial! BLAH it is so stupid!!!

I think all Comercials are stupid but some of the ones mentioned take the cake. The king has to be from a local dealership that parodies popular movies that are out now, they are SO stupid I just want to go to the dealership and kick the guy. Some movies are Austin Powers 2, Gladiator, some Western, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and some other ones I can't remember right now.

01-03-2002, 03:18 PM
I think the ratio of good to bad commercials is like, 1 to 50! Especially by the number of times they show them! They have a commercial here where they have some gay music with intervals of the words "Sale Now" and at the end, it gives the address of a furniture store. And commercial breaks are so long! 10 minutes of a show, and then 5 minutes of a commercial! I hate it!

01-03-2002, 05:20 PM
i hate miss cleo commercials and anti smkong ones..i dont smoke its just that let a kid do wut every they wanna do

01-03-2002, 05:45 PM

01-03-2002, 06:14 PM
