This is the second time in my life that I have turned my back on television almost uniquely due to those insane, juvenile, mind numbing product exposures, repeatedly and chronically plasted across the living room every five minutes or so. One following the other like a circulating tag team match in mind BLENDING confusion of rapid blinks and takes.

About six months ago, I pulled the wires from behind the sets in my office and in the living room and put them up high in the garage rafters. My spouse likes some noise when she goes to bed so hers is still attached and in place.

I don't think that I will go back to watching again in this lifetime.

What would interest me greatly would be full programming followed by the names of the sponsors rolling up the screen as in the credits for a movie. Other than that, I am done with it.

I love the commercial with Peyton Manning telling people to wear bigger shirts if they are out of shape...I think its funny. I like the Bud Light one too where the guy is picking up the hitchikers, but that is old. I just flip the channel when a commercial comes on usually. I do hate that Chicfila one too.

NO, those are the ones i can tolerate!
i really like the vonage one too.. "whoo hooo whooo whoo hoo"!
LOL.

but the whole point is advertising, i learn about alot of new things from commercials. when the really loud or irritating ones come on, i just mute the T.V.

Yes- I wonder what happened to the creativity of the Ad Campaigns and the multi-thousands of dollars spent researching, testing then running these advertising campaigns. Some used to have a bit more spice and creativity to them, a bit of wit, humor, sarcasm, prose, something.... Now - like that Oxy Cleaner/Zoom guy they just choose to scream in our face.
Disturbing.
