    Yes those commercials suck to. There are so many horrible commercials. Why do marketing people think it is a good idea to annoy the shit out of potential customers?

    I'm not so sure that it is working, Wayfair's commercials for me are so fucking annoying I will never buy from or go to their site and I love to buy shit online. I'm one person, I don't know if other people feel that way or they just submit to the relentless brainwashing of bombardment commercial rotation. You can't watch CNN or MSNBC without seeing Wayfair commercials every commercial break. I guess if you watch FOX News you get bombarded with farmersonly.com or reverse mortgage commercials.

    That fucking commercial where it's people "loving" doing shitty things and there's some asshole giving himself a paper cut in between his fingers. I want to throw the remote through the fucking TV every time that bullshit hits the screen. Who the fuck OKAY'd that?!

    we are still feeling the effects of the writer's strike didn't effect the bottom line so who cares. you'll watch what ever we give you even with so called cable cutting still not affected, case in point, Bernie had an open town hall about healthcare which effects every American no major would touch or even mention it was live streamed on Facebook wait until net neutrality really kicks in and only the 1% will get information they need to make decisions, so wake up "you got a bullet in your fucking head"

    I agree that Trumps repeal of net neutrality regulations put in place by the Obama administration will be a nightmare, but that is something for more of the political threads. This is more of a joke thread and the humor that I see in absolutely hating some mindless idiotic commercial. Everybody gets annoyed by these commercials and in some cases I wonder if the advertisers are shooting themselves in the foot by annoying the shit out of people in the attempt to sell them a product.

    Let's see... the myriad commercials for My Pillow, all that shitty cookware stuff that's made with copper (and usually being hocked by that obnoxious dump cake woman), the "stop paying too much for TV" commercials with Danny Trejo, and that Super Beet shit that you mix with water. And yes, that fucking Toujeo commercial, because ain't nobody that happy to mow their god damn lawn. Nobody.

    No offense, but they don't give a flying fuck about you. Their stock is up over 100% from this time last year. Whatever they're doing is working just fine without your business.

    I'm aware of that, but one thing I have noticed in life if something annoys you (or me in this case) chances are it annoys somebody else as well. At this moment in time everybody's stock is up, the stock market bubble is going to burst and the stock market is long overdue for a correction, but that is another conversation.
    Wayfair is this years overstock.com, over priced cheap ass furniture that wouldn't sell at other outlets, with an annoying as fuck ad campaign to go along with it. Like I said if it annoys me it probably annoys somebody else, if enough people are turned off by it then they will change but I don't think its an issue.
    You said it yourself their stock is up over 100% in a stock market that really doesn't match the economy, failure is right around the corner. I'm not wishing for the stock market to crash but the stock market is at 26,000 and it doesn't make sense, so a correction is inevitable. The buffoon in the white house isn't going to have a clue what to do if the market and the US economy goes crazy.
    When everybody's 401k's take a nose dive do think people will be worried about buying furniture online.

    I also believe that if you have cable or Direct TV that chances are they are monitoring your view habits. That kind of data would be very valuable to ad agencies.

    I know you said "No offense" but its kind of like when people say "I'm not a racist" then say something incredibly racist, I think you do mean to offend.

    Not sure why I liked your post (jk) I mean yes you're right that is a horrible commercial, but that is a horrible commercial. An excellent entry. It doesn't even sound like eighties music it sounds like a horrible attempt at eighties music.

    i don't hate these commercials, per se, but they are fucking ridiculous. and edgar wright made sure to show us this actual video before a showing of his first film, "a fistful of fingers" last year at the music box (only the second time it's been screened in the US) to make sure we had context for the joke that literally doesn't happen until the very end of the movie.



    also, my friend tiff (with whom i saw the movie) went to england not long after and brought me back a milky bar. i laughed so hard it was scary.

    No, I really don't. I've spent enough time working on various ad campaigns to know where consideration lies. Just like I know that Apple doesn't give a flying fuck about me for hating most of their commercials. I'm one person. There are other people like me, sure. But there are plenty of people who are buying their stuff anyway, so they don't care about me. I'm okay with that. You should be, too. You shouldn't feel offended that a company with hundreds of millions (or even billions) in valuation doesn't care what you, one angry customer, thinks. It's just about scale. It's not like they know your name and think you're a wanker for not enjoying their commercials. It's nothing personal. It's just how massive business operate.

    Personally, I agree that over-played commercials are annoying as fuck. We're on the same page about that. Not sure why you would think I'm trying to offend you. Friends?

    (Oh, and slightly off topic: if you want to talk 'monitoring viewing habits', read up on the ATSC 3.0 standards that have been finalized.)

    Look, all I'm saying is that this commercial didn't exist before Donald Trump was in the White House.

    A couple things.
    I got a My Pillow for xmas the thing so far is pretty legit. That commercial does suck though.
    According to a media class i took Advertising is largely ineffective. It's more about brand loyalty and all that, retention.
    I haven't "watched" tv in close to 20 years, sure i catch shows and it's on from time to time but i haven't had a T.V. of my own in over a decade. That said, those stupid fucking dancing jerk-off commercials that firefox have been running lately are pretty fucking inane. Oh and there was that car ad over the holidays that used the Holiday Road song as it's jingle that i seemingly couldn't avoid that about drove me fucking nuts as well.

    my wife would immediately get so angry when that commercial came on. it's AWFUL. and honestly, it would be fine if the song had no vocals. because the things happening in the commercial are cute.

    So I watch the DC CW shows and I use the CW app because I don't need to be glued in front of my TV every night for the same stuff. Weekend binge. It works out great for my relationship.

    EVERY. FUCKING. COMMERCIAL. BREAK.

    I like the song! But goddamn it.

    What drives me nuts is the commercials I get when watching like the "Go" apps on roku, like for a&e or discovery.

    They play these hyper localized commercials (one was for a hospital in fucking Massachusetts or something, one is for the mayoral race in Louisiana) and they will, no shit, play them seven or eight times in a row. And I mean literally in a row : there's a little ad counter for how many ads are in the break and it will be six or seven, so they just show one of these fucking commercials 6 or 7 times.

    I also feel bad for whoever paid for these ads. Did they say " oh yeah, we'll show it x number of times" but fail to mention they'd be showing it to the wrong state and just like back to back over and over instead of occasionally over a period of time hahaha.
