I actually don't allow myself to eat chips anymore. I considered chips and sodas as being addictive, so I don't touch the crap. I'll occasionally sample one chip out of a bag and maybe have two or three sodas a year (I usually have a Coke around Christmas. HOW CAN I SAY NO TO SANTA ON THE CAN). That's it, though.

....THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO COME IN A FUCKING CAN. OR MAYBE IN THOSE PLASTIC THINGS. BAGS? BAGS?! THATS ANTITHETICAL TO THE WHOLE...THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE IN A STACK.

DAMMIT STOP CHANGING EVERYTHING

Speaking of ads

Apparently now every car company has some "BUY OUR CAR, GAS WILL ONLY COST 2.99!" gimmick.

First off, 1 cent away from 3 bucks for fucking gas speaks a lot about how this situation is all wrong, but I won't start off on that part.

Second, it's clearly a scam...which doesn't bother me, at least in terms of it being a scam, thats par for the course thats how things work. I just haven't figured out the SPECIFICS of it, the fine print goes by too fast for me to read, and it's a damn commercial so I'm not going to research it.

It's just the saturation of it honestly, every fucking car ad now. "WE'LL SAVE YOU MONEY ON GAS". No, no you goddamn won't. I can't explain how you won't. But no, you won't.

For some reason this was changed to "You bet if it's Aspercreme".

And the sitcom failed, hard.


Fun fact: This isn't the first time an oversaturated commercial was optioned for a sitcom. Enter the flop that was Baby Bob. And as it says on there..apparently the gimmick was then brought back years later for commercials from an entirely different company.

Actually let me post another gripe. Theres this...it's some sort of online trading company. Their ads all look like crappy youtube videos. One of the inane many has a guy going "HI MY NAME IS (whatever), I'M IN HACKENSACK NEW JERSEY..I JUST PURCHASED SHARES FROM SHENG DAO (or whatever) IN HONG KONG...HONG KONG, THATS CHINA"

Yeah wow, you figured out how to trade internationally. I'll get right on engraving some form of medal for your stunning achievement.

Two and this is just irrational even I'll admit, thanks ASSHOLES for making Bergen county look like it's full of bald morons who think you have to use a website to deal with foreign markets. Not like a broker could do that, oh no, people from there are all just over-enthusiastic halfwits who have to use the intertubes to put our green paper into Chinese stocks. CAUSE ITS CHINA, WOW, HOW AMAZING.

Now they have a series with a talking baby trading stocks. It's just this baby in a high-chair with a camera on him, and the mouth is edited. Which is par for the course as far as "cocks talking baby sells things" ads..but in one of the ads the baby vomits. Honest to god, the baby vomits onto his shirt. And they edit it so he goes "whoops, sorry".

To be fair, this ad apparently has dropped from the rotation, as in I haven't seen it in a couple of weeks..but still. I can't be the only person who finds the idea of a vomiting baby in an ad for stock trading to be awful. It's not even the fact this has nothing to do with finance, it's more..why is there a vomiting baby on my t.v.?

Jesus fuckin' Christ, I know what you're talking about and I hate this commercial as well. That isn't Charles Schwab is it, because I'm thinking it is that but yeah, fucking terrible all around. And I keep thinking the same thing, oh you know where Hong Kong is? Congrats? Now get the fuck off my television, you lace-curtain youse.
Peace.

No I think charles schwab is/was the one running those like...they're animated, but not really...if you ever saw the movie waking life it's the same kind of animation, rotoscoping maybe?

Those were also pretty grating.

Wasn't there this one whose overall theme was that of "We're Boy Scouts, I, the owner, built a treehouse with honesty and integrity" or something like that? Scottrade.

The whole gas for 3.99/gallon thing is only for like 12,000 miles/year, and only for 87 octane.
