The grossest commercial ever

    I'm sure the rest of NYSportsJournalists.com has seen this beaut: A guy with a hole in his throat from cancer speaking into a voice box and telling us not to smoke.

    Quite effective, but watching him wash the area around the hole makes me nauseous.

    Of course it also makes me think of the Denis Leary skit from No Cure For Cancer, where the guy with the voice box orders fast food at the drive thru window. "Stop making fun of me." "I'm not making fun of you."

    That's pretty nasty.
    But the creepiest (is that a word?) commercial is that Dr Pepper one where "Stacy's Mom" is playing. Dr Pepper says three cheers for pedophilia.

    I like the TP commercials where the cute cartoon dancing bears continuously wipe their asses. At first they just indirectly hinted at it, now they've got everything except zoom-lens closeups.

    ::) ::)

    I think the worst one ever is the guy that thinks he's eating cottage cheese, and his roomate comes up and tells him that they don't sell cottage cheese in milk cartons. [/wretch]

    They have some anti-meth ones out here that give me nightmares. They show people ripping their skin off, their teeth falling out, etc. Very disturbing.

    The new Diet Sprite commercial where they take the lemon slice off the guy's eye, and it turns out to be another mouth? Pretty creepy.

    And somebody who took home a big paycheck this week came up with the idea: "Yeah, that'll make people want to drink our soda."

    yeah i often wonder how commercial ideas are generated. i mean who the fuck decides that a gorilla should quietly walk into a couple's bedroom and discuss why they need to switch banks? how is that a good idea?

    There's a chewing gum ad where a stick of chewing gum chases a woman starting a triathalon hollering at her in a Scottish accent that she shouldn't be starting without 'her friend'. 

    Weird.  A Scottish stick of gum begging to be chewed.

    Someone was doing some acid that weekend.

    That's still better than the annoying Scottish guy from the Alexander Keith's commercials who turned out to be a child porn aficionado.

    Those old Quizno's commercials with those fucked up hamsters made me stay away from Quizno's for like two years.
    Also, those Pepto commercials where they sing that horrible song...most of the time while I'm eating dinner.

    Especially where they sing the word "diarrhea," crouch over grabbing their groin areas. Nice.
