I always hit the mute button on the remote whenthe ads are on.
That’s what advertisers do…and they’re good at it….makes you buy stuff you don"t need but want……lol
I check out TCM when a commercial comes on. If it’s something I like better, I’ll stick with it.
Yeah, and if they make you think you’re saving money – so much the better!
The ads I find most memorable are for things I’ll never want or need.
: ) My better half was just describing this ad to me yesterday… I can’t wait to catch it.
Offer not good after curfew in Sectors R or N.

" And if you call in the next 15 minutes !! We’ll double the offer and send you two, Just pay the extra shipping and handling. What most people don’t realize is they buy in bulk and the product cost them LESS THAN HALF of the shipping and handling charge. So they actually are selling you two…
Sounds like the old Fred Rated commercials with the rubber chicken.
I want one too…… whatever it was.
i HATE commercials…. That’s when I click on to go to a back up channel for the time the commerial airs.
When my sons were growing up, we would rate commercials. Most were an insult to our intelligence, but I wanted them to know that some commercials are really dumb.
Why would any intelligent, awake person watch commercials?? With DVR’s no one has to. It’s the same with commercial radio stations. It shows a person’s level of conciseness, if they listen to the dozen blaring, obnoxious commercials with one song in between. IPOD is the answer.
Littlebirdie: WFF’’n’Proof had a game called Propaganda – Loren Greene was co-creator – in which one had to identify which logical fallacy was being used. I played it with my kids back in the days before mute buttons or chip-based recording was available to avoid commercials. It is a good antidote to their techniques..
While I’m usually Opal and my husband Earl, in this case, it’s my husband who’s always saying that! Great strip!
Or the old Budweiser ad, where the best man was so impatient to get to the partying that he hired an auctioneer to auction… er… marry the couple.
