5 Commercials I hate

Disclaimer: If you are offended easily, or just have an affinity for terrible commercials please skip this blog entry.
These are the top commercials I can't stand to watch or listen to for that matter.
5. Secret Flawless Deodorant
Yes, we've all been there. You know when your deodorant suddenly stops working and you either smell or you begin to sweat. This commercial shows a woman walking down the street with her arms in the air showing her armpits. The first thing I cannot stand about this commercial is that she's walking down the street with her arms in the air. Of course, your not going to sweat or smell, for that matter, when your flashing your pits to the world!!! The second thing, is her shrilly voice. There is a part in the commercial where she sees a police car and throws her arms in the air and shrieks " I'm innocent. . . and fresh (after she smells her underarms)". This part makes me literally want to throw something through the tv at her and get her to hush.
Secret Flawless, I think your a scam. Anybody that walks down the street with their arms in the air is going to stay dry and "fresh".
4. Those Title Max/ Title pawn commercials
I can't say I identify at all with the people represented in these commercials. First, I know your excited about getting your "title back with title max", but I feel as if your a little TOO excited. These people are so excited that I feel like they may begin to jump through the roof at any second. I'm sorry but if I had to pawn off my car title, I may be a little more humble to the fact that this company gave me a high interest loan and I finally earned back my car title after years of paying this outrageous loan.
It's called a budget people! Try making one.
3. JG Wentworth
At first I couldn't understand what this commercial was about. But after seeing it for the 10,000th time, I got it. These people are entitled to a cash settlement of some sort and JG Wentworth wants to help them get their money (and money for JG Wentworth too).
The one thing I don't understand is why are these people yelling out the window? Who is listening? I don't care. If it's your "money and you need it now", go to JG Wentworth and talk to them. There is no point in screaming it out the window. Plus, the camera man is aiming the camera right up your nose and I can see every hair. ::gag::
The only time you are allowed to yell out the window or door, for that matter, is during an Auburn football game and Auburn just scored a touchdown and your neighbors are Alabama fans (or Michigan fans, right Mr. Williams?)
2. Milo's
It's a catchy song, don't get me wrong. But I don't buy into bandwagon propaganda. Come on Milo's marketing people. "Everybody goes to Milo's" is getting a little old. I have to admit, I have never been to Milo's. So therefore, everybody does NOT go to Milo's. Time for a new slogan.
Well, I take that back. I did go through the drive thru for a cup of ice. But that doesn't count.
And the number one commercial/s I hate:
Drum roll please. . .
1. Those Oxyclean/ Orange Glow/ Kaboom/ whatever your selling this week commercials.
Okay, so I don't know the guy's name. But you all know who I'm talking about. It's that annoying guy that with the really thick black beard.
Dear Mr. thick beard,
I don't understand why you yell at me in every single one of your commercials. And you yelling at me does NOT want to make me run out and buy your products. Maybe if you asked nicely, said please, or stopped YELLING AT ME, I would consider it. Until then, we will not do business.
Thanks so much,


  1. you make me laugh out loud! :) hope you have a good weekend...

  2. Jennie,

    I hope those War Eagle's helped to get you to the Plains. Obviously, it did nothing for Michael.

    God Bless,

    Mr. Williams

  3. I second your opinion on all of those commercials! You are too funny!

    You have never been to Milo's??? I don't believe it...not even for some sweet tea? Oh my!

  4. jen you crack me up i just sat here and laughed thinking of all the times in auburn that you made me laugh like that and how i loved hanging out with you! oh and in my effort to comment on yours and tell you how i totally identify with your commercial comments i ended up making my own blog so i think the address is maybe i dunno lol anyway thank the Lord for dvr so we can fast forward through all those silly commercials that don't make sense. ><> kourt

  5. I love this post! I totally agree, especially with the secret one. That one is terrible!

    In response to your post on my page, I just quit the pumping. I go back to work in a week and with how I am running all the time, it will be impossible to pump there. Quitting in difficult for me. It hurts and there is a sense of guilt there, but Ethan seems to be enjoying the formula. Now I got to figure that one out. :/
