Half of the time people don't answer the damn phone though.

I hate it when I call someone and they don't answer, then about 10 seconds later I get a text that says "What's up?"

If it was short enough to go in a text then it would have gone in a text, obviously I want to talk to you jackass.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

They also have rare variant collector's edition menthol versions of the ads.  ::)

Well I certainly never thought I'd here "Gigantic" in a commercial. More amusing than annoying though.

I like it because he sounds like he's doing a halfhearted Andrew Dice Clay impression.

People want to do the laziest thing. Having a phone conversation is more socially and emotionally intimate or taxing than simply shooting off a text. I think a lot of people in our culture (myself included sometimes) like keeping others at arms' length. Especially since you might have a quick question, whereas a phone call requires the disingenuine "what's up/how're you doing/what's new/what ya got planned this weekend/we should really get together" ettiquette at the beginning and end of the call (you can't just burst right into your agenda with someone you haven't talked to for a few weeks or more, nor can you hang up right after). Both of you know it's bullshit but you have to go through the routine, and what could have been a couple text platitudes to get your answer has become a 5- or 10-minute diversion. Like the previous poster talking about his g/f's mom--it's often easier to go this way depending on the person. A phone call to certain people can turn into an hour of trying to get off the phone. I often hear my wife going "Mom, I have to get off the phone...Mom, I gotta go" intermittently for like 20 or 30 minutes of just listening to her mom go on and on, with her mother oblivious to the one-sided nature of their conversations (and by extension, their whole adult relationship). Around 40 minutes to an hour after the call started, her mom goes "I have to go! I have to go!" and hangs up, usually when my wife finally has a chance to be the speaker and not the listener. Yes, she's an emotionally-exhausting person.

Texting, like social media, is another awful trend of depersonalization in our culture that makes us feel like we're maintaining relationships with people when we're doing the opposite. It really needs to stop, but holy shit is it easier.     

EDIT: Sorry, that's really off-topic. I guess I should have branched this discussion into the "Are you one of those people with a cell phone in front of their face all day?" thread in General Chat.

Honestly, this isn't a bad commercial and both girls are eminently smushable (and Bruins girl takes a great header) but they show this thing SO MUCH during the playoffs that I have to nitpick.  Is Boston/Philly THAT big of a rivalry?  Wouldn't it work better if Philly girl had a Montreal shirt or Bruins girl had a Rangers shirt?

The Discover Card commercials can be really silly at times, but this one might be the dumbest one.

The only rivalries anybody up here actually give a shit about are Sox/Yankees, Celtics/Lakers, Pats/Jets, and Bruins/Habs, in that order.

These Vista Print ads that play multiple times during EVERY SINGLE COMMERCIAL BREAK on TruTV. 

Also, these Subway commercials with the guy that tries to make the ingredients of a Turkey, Bacon and Guacamole sub sound like a romance novel.

How do you guys feel about this commercial?



This is from mid-late 90's.  I always liked it, but most people I knew didn't, thus the jingle would be of much use to annoy friends and family.  Good times.

I couldn't get through those commercials that MFer shared.  I also haven't seen them in my market.

But I remember liking that Volkswagen commercial at the time that was shared two months ago.

I hadn't seen an Education Connection commercial in a long time with their creepy singing ads.  Just now there was a really bad one with a mother singing a lullaby to her baby about how Education Connection allows her to keep the kid from ruining her life.  Or at least that was my takeaway.




Now, looking this up apparently they have 15, 30 and 60 second versions of this.  Also, this has been posted since start of August, almost seven months, and has less than 845 views when I found it.

Couldn't find it on YouTube with a quick search but there is a new campaign promoting fishing with little kids complaining about touch screens and all things kids like now spinning it as they want to be out fishing but need someone to take them.  Beautifully odd.  It has an actual good message but just feels like it was put together by cranky, out of touch people
