    They're on less often than This Is My Country. :p

    And speaking of those Dr. Pepper ads, couldn't they have picked a song that's not originally about kittencide? :D

    well there should be
  4. Surprised it took 'til late in page 2 to get to the Dr. Pepper commercials. Every time I hear "the score is tied 23-23 in the 23rd quarter!" I think to myself "that sounds like the worst game ever," without even knowing what sport it is.

    As soon as I saw 2MCM's post, I knew IJAG's would shortly follow. :D

    I think it was the frequency yesterday that pushed me over the edge. They were as ubiquitous to the college football games, especially on ABC, yesterday as the My Country ads were during the baseball playoffs.

    Granted, My Country is a lot worse, but the frequency of the Dr Pepper spots yesterday just wore me down.

    (Happy IJAG?)

    If you live in SoCal, you know this mattress commercial that makes me want to throw small children off a balcony:

    "YOU'RE KILLING ME LARRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Thanks, GB-Hack. :D

    And I did it because 2mcm is my friend, so I could. I called him yesterday for advice, and he was of no help. So he deserved it. :)

    Up here those stupid commercials with the beavers (for Bell I think) are heinous and the Cash Man, Russell Oliver, should be sent to Gitmo.

    I love the Geico commercials, with the exception of the ones with the gekko on the talk show. Those are stupid as hell.

    But the others rock.
  11. I love to Geico commercials because they're so dumb, but hilarious.

    I dislike:
    1. Man Law
    2. Guiness. Brilliant!
    3. The PhilipMorris commercials that refer you to their "Don't Smoke" websites, which anyone with a brain realizes is catered to rebellious kids who want to do something because the commercial tells you not to.
