    Re: Annoying Commercials 2: Searching for the MUTE button

    This isn't a commercial, it's a promotional spot on The Military Channel about some upcomming program in which the announcer intones: From aerial bombers that can drop bombs from nearly ten miles up. . ." Uh, aren't all bombers aerial?

    They also endlessly repeat promos about their series "An Officer and a Movie," starring "veteran" actor Lou Diamond Phillips. In the context of the program, the word "veteran" is either deceptive or irrrelevant. Lassie is a veteran actor, too. But if he (correct) were hosting the series, I doubt they'd refer to him as a "veteran" actor.

    I saw one last night that was so stupid I left too shocked to even catch who was actually advertising. It was just a bunch of stupid people talking about their cats, and saying that they're cat people.

    The Lowe's commercial that has aired on 1000+ times on CBS during the NCAA basketball tournament. The guy looks like a 12 year old boy sleeping then all of a sudden he is carried by the smell of spring and doing lawn work in an oxford shirt and khakis. ****es me off every time

    How 'bout the idiot who says: "I'm not having a heart attack, I've got a headache," when the flight attendant offers him some aspirin? He deserves to be having a heart attack.

    I hate anything about a store or restaurant that is at least 2 hours away. This means 90% of commercials.

    The Verizon Bad Idea commercial. Why?

    Saturday Night Live did that decades ago:

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    At the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. In the warm California Sun. BOARDWALK!

    It's just worn me down. It's everywhere and has been for years.

    Speaking of which, those Capital One commercials with Jimmy Fallon vs. the baby are also awful.

    The Verizon Wireless one with the two women (mother/daughter?) bawling that they'll miss each other. I set a new record for hitting the mute button every time it comes on.
