I don't hate all commercials. Some are informative or funny. There was a silly one about oxen and dachsunds a few years back that still makes me smile. But some just totally get my goat!
Last night I was talking to my hubby while he watched a baseball game, and I noticed this awful commercial. Two men are sitting on a fence watching their friend being chased by a bull while he screams for help. Neither of them wants to go help him because they are too absorbed by their (no doubt exquisitely delicious) Taco Bell nachos. "Not it," they say back and forth as their friend gets gored by the bull. Ha, ha.
I mean, obviously this is supposed to be funny, right? But what's funny about it? Funny to watch your friend get almost killed? Funny because you value $1.99 food-like product more than a person? I really don't get it.
Another commercial I hate - from several years ago. A woman is taking a picture of her husband sitting on their new car. "A little further," she keeps prompting him, over and over, until he falls off the car and she smiles, "Perfect" and snaps the picture of just the car. URRRGH! Yes, let's all remember what's important in life - the inanimate object that doesn't love you back.
I hope I don't sound too curmudgeonly, but the values that these supposedly funny commercials are promoting are just insidiously degrading. Basically, "I got mine and I don't care about you." And of course, those are just two relatively light examples - I'm not even getting into political advertisements (change the channel), pharmaceutical ads (sickening) or car ads (ridiculous!).
How about you - any particular commercials that just make you retch?
