Craptastic Commercials

June 17, 2008

This world is full of them!

Here are my personal favorites.

Dixie Paper Plates

You know the one I’m talking about. The one with all the happy mamas and kiddos, eating. Then comes the tag line – some such crap about being a better mom for not “wasting” time having to wash dishes.

Here’s a link, if you’ve not seen it.

Seriously? This is so LAME.

1. Let’s imply that ANYONE is a better parent than anyone – based on the dishes they use.
2. Let’s promote killing the environment for the sake of family (so says the avid paper plate user).

Here’s a solution! Use glass dishes, make the kids wash them – teaches responsibility 😉 and saves the environment!

The Charmin Bear Campaign

Can I just say EW?! I never, ever want to see anyone (animal or not) wiping their rear on TV.

Always Pads

Have a “happy period”?? Must have been thought up by a man. Any woman out there knows there is no such thing.

Quizno’s Ratthing

Rat and food should never, ever go together. Unless you want people to think of rats when they think of your food?

Any commercial with Billy Mayes

His voice is like nails on a chalk board. He’s like the real life Dora the Explorer – has to YELL every.single.thing.

Burger King Big Head Guy

He’s just really creepy. REALLY.

Discount Tire Old Lady

You know, the one where she’s “returning” it – and chunks it through the window? Lame!

Skittles Commercials

Does anyone really “get” them??

    I just want to SECOND everything you wrote…especially the happy period thing. What the heck is that? Who came up with that stupid campaign?

    What a great post and fab points! I really need to work on being green. My 3rd busy boy has made me lazy.

    Amen, sister!! My personal favorite was the Orowheat commercial where they bragged about their “master bakers.” Seriously? Did they actually just say master baker?

    That paper plate commercial really, really gets my goat. So obnoxious.
