Animals=Bad Commercials

I’m sorry, I just have to rant about commercials for a little bit.  I was thinking about the Super Bowl the other day and once again they showcased a handful of commericals featuring animals.  Can we stop with the animals please.  Enough!  I’m so sick of this crap.  And this year was just awful.

Remember that stupid Doritos commercial where the dog chokes the human for a bag of doritos.  Oh wow, an animal acting like a human!  Here we go again.  This isn’t funny.  Or how about Dennys.  Oh, haha, the chickens are playing pool.  That’s so outrageous…just simply uproarious.  Give me a break.  And can someone tell me why the Budweiser Clydesdale is interesting or funny.  Come on!

Advertisers think that if they just get a gopher or groundhog dancing in front of the TV, everyone will buy their product.  We see this all the time.  What is wrong with using humans!!  Remember those Terry Tate ads?  That was funny.  Why do we need fricking animals force fed down our throats in commercials.  How many times over the years have we seen rabbits, frogs, lizzards, and other stupid little critters talking and acting like humans.   We have plenty of great movies where animals act as humans, we don’t need to see a half assed attempt in a commercial.

Although I guess animals are better than those fricking E Trade babies which I just find disturbing.  But really, that’s in the same vane as my animal argument.  Oh hey, these babies are acting like adults, isn’t that clever.  Ohhhhhhhhhh, look at us.  Please.

This topic gave me 8 “Oy Veys” of annoyance out of 10.
