Those Whiskas ads with people pretending to be cats. "No meat...No Hubert!" Man those are really silly and annoying. I actually kind of like the esurance ads because they remind me of Scully and Mulder to a small extent. They do play those way too much though. I actually love the song Freedom myself.

It wasn't until all these commercials started that I became aware the E.D. as they call it was such a problem. So now I joke with my friends every time they are in a foul mood ... "Ahhh, what's wrong E.D. got you down."

 Hehehe...I just got a cool idea. The next time I get a salesman calling my house,trying to sell me a vacation or a new roof or windows,I'm going to go off on him,in a weird way- like:
Phone Guy: Hello! May I speak to the homeowner?
 Me: Yes! It is I-ERECTILE! Master of the Universe!
 P.G.: When was the last time you bought new windows?
 Me: I am ERECTILE!
P.G. Are youu the homeowner,sir?
Me: I am ERECTILE!

 ...well...you get the picture. Every thing he says I will keep saying that, untill HE hangs up!

"I'm Free" (to do as I please any old time)  (I've always recalled the song as "freedom" for some reason) was originally sung by the Rolling Stones and then redone by the Soupdragons. I really love both versions but  it's the Soupdragons version which is the take that seems to turn up in commercials.

"Don't be afraid of your freedom

Freedom



I'm free to do what I want any old time

I said I'm free to do what I want any old time



I say love me, hold me

Love me, hold me

'Cause I'm free to do what I want any old time

And I'm free to be who I choose any old time



I say love me, hold me

Love me, hold me

'Cause I'm free to do what I want

To be what I want any old time

And I'm free to be who I choose

To get my booze any old time



I say love me (love me forever)

Hold me (and love will never die)

Love me, hold me

'Cause I'm free



Do you hear what I say

These are the words me hear from my grandaddy, come on

These are the words me hear from my grandaddy

Who say nothing in this world like when a man know he free

Free from the lackamissa (?)

Free from the dee (?)

Free like a butterfly

Free like a bee

These are the words me hear from my grandaddy

Said it's nice to be free, nice to be free

Free from the lackamissa (?)

Free from the dee (?)

Don't be afraid of your freedom



'Cause I'm free to do what I want any old time (I'm a new creation)

'Cause I'm free to do what I want any old time

(Don't be afraid of your freedom)

'Cause I'm free to do what I want

To be what I want any old time

I said I'm free to be who I choose

To get my booze any old time"

If they won't hang up still get real panicky and say I really have to go it's been over 4 hours.

Quiznos is no stranger to sucky commercials.  I used to sing this to my wife when I was bored...its absolutely one of the most horrible ideas ever for a commercial...

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZrks-BPeLQ

The "Do You Hear Me Now" guy is a close runner up.  Glad they killed that joke finally.





THANK YOU!!!  I had begun to think that I had hallucinated the "Quizno's Singing Roadkill" Commercial because no one I talked to remembers it or ever heard of it . . . but I SWEAR it actually aired during the Superbowl a few years back.  My gosh, what was some ad exec thinking??  That is arguably one of the weirdest commercials ever made!!!

Those critters are from this site.

It's a bunch of weird flash, but the original song those things are in (the "moon song") is one of those bits of internet humor that either is really funny to you, or totally irritates the p**s out of you.

One name comes to mind when it comes to commercials I HATE!!!  Jared.  Yes you lost 100-some-odd-pounds; yes Subway sandwiches have less fat.  SHUT THE F*CK UP!!!  If I want to eat a fatty burger, I'LL EAT A F*CKIN' FATTY BUGER!!!  The reason Quiznos is better is probably your dumb ass.

Who's this Ty Pennington clown other than being a freaking Bobble-head ... all of the sudden he is making commercial all over the place and has a magazine. Who is this clown? If you've seen him, watch him he can not speak without his head bobbling around like some demented bobble-head. I know he was like the carpenter or handyman on Trading Places or something, I don't think that qualifies to have a magazine IMHO.

My most hated one at the moment is for the American Express card.  They have a bunch of TV personalities sitting around talking, in very serious tones, about how they "are in a position to make a difference".  They talk about African famine relief, etc etc etc.  The only personality I recognize is Ellen Degeneres.  I just despise celebrities who think that working in a film studio somehow makes them scholarly ambassadors of good will or some such crap.  Go back to doing your thousand dollars worth of cocaine a day, telling everyone in America the details of your sexual preferences, and going through highly publicized divorces.  Don't think it elevates you to the rank of statesman for chrissakes.

Is this the one where just some random guy shows up and mentions something?  Its a really stupid commercial if its the one I'm thinking of.

Yeah, I think it's the one where that random guy wants to save his lake.  Then all the celebs talk about how they go to that lake too --- even though they've never heard of it before.  Typical of celebs to jump on any bandwagon.

In regards to Quiznos commercials, I hate that the guy pronounces the "m" 5 times, when they only have 4 in their stupid slogan.
