Most ads irritate me to no end. I lunge across the room to grab the remote to change the channel when certain ads come on. Most recently and more specifically come to mind:
- dish's Hopper- Few things more aurally intrusive to me than the Boston accent. The same word repeated ad nauseam in a Boston accent? Is torture... and I think against the Geneva Convention
- Weight Watchers anything with Jennifer Hudson-you can sing. We get it. Shut up.
- Kia sand man commercial-I'm sorry but any red blooded man who is going to dream about racing a car is NOT going to dream of racing ... a Kia. And any man's fantasy rock & roll dream does NOT involve a washed up 80s band beyond their prime and utterly creepy to look at
- State Farm 'We just had a Journey Moment' -I love Journey. I love classic rock. Do NOT Ruin classic rock. Journey didn't do anything to you. Don't hurt them!!! Do NOT ruin Journey for me! (wait- is it State Farm? Or is it All State? Or Geico?? I can never keep them apart. They all have different names but they're basically the same to me)
I really can not stand any of those commercials. Now, some would say that my distaste for these commercials is a good thing because it's still creating a memorable experience ... plus look, here I am, mentioning them on a blog and BOOM! Gettin the word out!! I have to say that my distaste for these ads have lead me to have a distaste for the companies and therefore an aversion. I would never purchase or use any of these products/services because their ads have completely alienated me. If your ad irritates and disappoints me, I don't have high hopes for your product.
