I'm getting really tired of the rodents "dancing"/rapping around whatever boxy car it is they are spokes-rodents for . . . in spite of seeing the spot too many times, I don't even really remember what the product is.

I know that the company is KIA but I don't remember which car it is. My issue with the commerical is that in most cases the commerical airs twice, one right after the other,

Awwww... I love the rapping rodents.

I really hate that commercial (Road Runner?) with the cop writing a speeding ticket and keeps upping the speed... "what part of 96 don't you understand?" It's one of the rare commercials that I just have to change the channel.

I dislike HECO ads using Jade Moon. She has a reputation as a news reporter, but the ads are full of half truths. Now they are using kids that only know what they are told to promote less that half truths.

Any commercial that has a telephone ringing. Commercials are louder, so it's annoying when you're doing something else, and then think for a second that your phone is ringing.

And along with that, any commercial that features the doorbell ringing. Because my dogs can't distinguish between our doorbell and the one on TV, so they run off barking...grr.

Speaking for myself I don't have a problem with the ad in question, but yeah this is not a local ad, but then again Jack in the Box is a region wide chain not a national chain hence their ads would air in certain parts of the country.

Does having Jade Moon as a spokesperson lessen the blow of your electricity bill going through the roof?

I just focus my eyes on the computer screen instead of the tv when one of those anti-smoking public service ads comes on.

My monitor just started smoking again.
There was an outback steakhouse ad out a while ago ,wherein,
A pair of opal diggers came upon a shack and sawed it apart to
make a barbecue.
It worked.

Ha, It comes from trying to do the computer and watch TV at the same time. Since I reversed the posting of local/national last week, I will give support of such an error as .... just an oops!

They're all just oopses! I've had my share of oopses in the disappearing eating establishments and disappearing businesses threads. I forget to read the thread's title! The local and national tv ad threads jump out at me, tho'. I wonder why!

Is it just me, or does anyone else find the series of Capital One CC commercials starring Alec Baldwin to be anything but funny?

I experience a sense of wonder that anyone could be persuaded to use the CC by watching them, and I am happy that Baldwin is able to supplement his income this way. I didn't realize they were supposed to be funny.

I was disappointed that Alec Baldwin became a spokesperson for Capital One because of their predatory practices, however, it appears that he has been turning over his earnings on these spots to charitable organizations he supports. Looks like he's already contributed over $5-million. Good move by Alec.

Anyway, I think the Alec Baldwin spots are much better than the embarrassingly bad Jimmy Fallon Capital One commercials with the baby. I can't find any word on whether the money is staying in Fallon's wallet.

The ends justify the means? From Alec Baldwin,... absolutely!

Anybody remember this gem from several years ago?

I think it's a State Farm ad, where a young lady believes everything on the internet and walks off with a date (a French model) she found on the internet. Blech.

The ads are not supposed to be funny or un-funny, good or bad. Their primary purpose is to be MEMORABLE! and obviously they were successful in the cases cited above. Just ask Tutu!
