Stupidest Commercial EVER

I hate talking about these kinds of commercials, but sometimes I've just got to vent. The reason why I hate talking about commercials is because they are designed to catch your attention so people will get to talking about the product their selling. Once word of mouth gets around, the product will sell. Even outrageous and negative commercials will get noticed and when people

Now, I believe in keeping alcahol out of the hands of children, but a very small amount on very rare occaisions is not going to hurt them.

This is about the new anti-drinking commercial that is about keeping children from drinking.

It ends with the child who's obviously been heavily abused and neglected stating in the most pathetic and begging voices you can imagine:

"It began with alcahol. Who knows where it will end"

And what upsets me most is that this kind of commercial is demonizing any drinkers for drinking any amount of alcahol at all.

It's the prudes that will ruin things for everybody else. I'm sick and tired of them.

Don't know the commercial myself, but for future reference it's alcohol.
Do you have a video link?

Re: Stupidest Commercial EVER

The Baskin/Robbins commercial where there's a kid's soccer game and the coach says they'll get ice cream if they win the game is horrible. After he says this a from the other team gets near a soccer mom and she kicks the ball away from him and screams "in your face!" at the kid. Makes me wanna slap the bitch.

I think it was Leno who suggested a McD's version:

"Big Mac: Apply directly to your ass. Big Mac: Apply directly to your ass."

What's worse...I'm CONVINCED they bought up a crapload of time on the 24-hour news networks and took advantage of the outbreak of the Lebanon-Israel War, because that's exactly when I started seeing it: when they knew a whole lot of people would be watching the same channel for long periods of time.

They couldn't have been that clever.

Could they?

So, wait. Your theory is that advertisers WANT to run ads when more people are watching? Someone should look into this further.

I used to be able to contribute to these conversations, but my DVR has hurt me in that regard.

I can't find the screaming soccer mom Baskin Robbins commercial anywhere either. All I find is the revised version where after kicking the ball she high fives the coach.

Another stupid one was a Pepto Bismol commercial with a guy going through customs. He's asked if he has anything to declare and he moans "Diarheaaaaaaaaa!". Stupid!

I still see those commercials on TV. I thought Enzyte had been proven to be a fraud? Why would its commercials still be airable?
