Thursday Thirteen #3

Okay, while watching TV on Tuesday night I decided that my TT for this week was going to be about commercials! Yup! You might hate them, but we still have to watch them...

1. Jessica Simpson in the Pizza Hut commercial - I'm usually not one for being offended much by commercials, but this one I find completely disturbing. I just think it's just WRONG! The kids like 12 years old!!!

2. Mr. Sub Chicken Souvlaki - Personally I don't each chicken's (too healthy.) I do eat cows, and yes... I know that probably isn't the best way for me to word it, but it's the truth. I'm a member of PETA (which most of you already know,) but I will never be asked to be a spokesperson... I don't like tofu. Yukk!

3. Head on - Holy sh**t! There's nothing better than a commercial that tells you how annoying it is and then goes on to repeat it like 5billion times! It gives me a headache just listing - which I guess is the idea. Don't watch this one while eating lunch, you'll be sick to your stomach.

4. Stupid.ca - I love these commercials. If you're a smoker you won't, but I'm not, so every time I watch these commercials I wonder why smokers just don't get it.

5. MADD - I love these commercials. Any commercial that hopefully makes someone think twice about doing something stupid... is a commercial I love.

6. Diet Pepsi commercials - I'm a diet Pepsi fan. Only if I was desperate would I pick up a coke - and I mean desperate. Anyways, I love the P-Ditty diet Pepsi commercial. It's funny and cute.

7. Cadbury Caramilk chocolate commercial - I couldn't find a link to this one for the life of me, but I hate it! The one where the woman sits on the couch, and her man comes home, she pops the last piece of chocolate in her mouth and he's disappointed. Then there's an older version of the couple, last piece, she eats it (still sitting on the couch I might add.) Then another older version of the couple, same thing. Then so old that he needs a walker (and is still coming home from work - he probably has to work to support her chocolate eating habits,) and she has almost half of the bar left, and before the man even makes it to the couch she gobbles down the rest. Grrrrrr! I hate this commercial. If my husband didn't share a chocolate bar with me... well, we don't even have to go there, he knows better! ;) The woman is just cruel.

8. Nicoderm Patch - I love this commercial!!! One of my absolute favourites!

9. Tag Body Spray - I like the commercial for the woman's body spray. ;)

10. Condoms - This commercial was banned, because, well... it's a tad wrong. But it's also exactly why I'm allergic to kids. Whenever I think of them this is what I picture. ;)

11. MasterCard - I love MasterCard commercials, some make me laugh, others make me cry. This one is just absolutely BANNED from TV. :)

12. Hansplast condoms - This kid is just hilarious! Wow... do you ever have to be careful around kids! :)

13. Last, but not least... The German Kfee car commercial. I have received this in e-mails and seen it on funny commercial shows. But each time somehow I just forget... until the end. Then I remember. Please do not watch this one if you have any heart problems. :)

Hope you enjoyed that... What are your favourite or least favourite commercials?

Wylie Kinson said...

Thank you, Vicky, FOR THE FREAKING HEART ATTACK THAT CAME WITH #13!!!!

It's going to take me a long time to recover. I may not be at Feb's TRW meeting. Or March. Maybe April if I'm off the defibrillator...

See you then ...
*still shaking*
Wylie

Vicky said...

Hey Wylie! I warned you!!! Oh come on you'll be at the February meeting, we all have to cheer on Amy! (Maybe she'll even share her chocolate.) ;)

Sorry about the heart attack! :)

Crunchy Carpets said...

LMAO!!!!

That is excellent!!!

Nancy J. Bond said...

Great list! I most especially agree with you on the Head On and Nicoderm commercials. :)

Vicky said...

:) Heeeheee! I love that Nicoderm commercial... I can watch it a thousand times and still LMAO! And the head on commercial, seriously, I want to throw my damn tv out the window!

Thomma Lyn said...

HA! Great list. Hubby and I hate so many freaking commercials, but dang, the one that's driving me craziest now is the one for Nutrisystem where the gal chirps, "Look at MEEEE -- I'm in a Size Twoooo!" I'm getting to the point where I want to bang my head against the wall every time I see that commericial just to get the sound of her voice out of my head. 8-))))) They play that freaking commercial constantly! Annoying!

And UGH, "Head On"... I haven't seen that one in a while, thank goodness... the horror, the horror...

Angela/SciFiChick said...

A few of those don't play here in the states.. at least not in Indiana. Very funny

Vicky said...

Thomma Lyn - Oh, I hate that one too. Seriously, I lost 1000 pounds in two weeks you can be a negative size too! Arrrrgggghhhhh!!!!!

Angela - Heeeeheeee - I hope you like our commercials, some are banned and we don't see them either, but the one's that should be banned, like Jessica Friggin Simpson is playing like it's our new national anthem!

Shiloh Walker said...

my kids are too afraid of me to ever like that in a store... or anywhere. ;)

A commercial I absolutely love is one for a kids cold medicine. Shows this little cartoon wolf at a farm at night and the farmer hears him. Little wolf runs home, tells mama he just couldn't sleep. She gives him cold medicine and asks what he was thinking, going to that farm.

his response...

Mama... I was counting sheep....

Christine said...

Ahhhh....I'm at work and can't watch these. Tonight when I get home!

Rashenbo said...

Lol.... heheh Wylie's reaction is a hoot.

I love all those Tag commercials. I think they are too fun! And, those head on commercials drive me absolutely batty... and now they've got other products... EEEEK!

Thanks for visiting my list. I hope you have a lovely Thursday.

Vicky said...

Shiloh - that is a cute one! And I love any parent that admits their children are too afraid of them... LOL!!!

Christine - Oh Christine, if you watch any of them watch the nicoderm... my husband isn't amused when I break down into tears from laughing so hard, but for some reason I love it. I don't smoke, but for some reason I just feel for the girl! ;)

Rashenbo - Yeah, our Wylie is a hoot! And I love the TAG commercials, but this one by far is one of my favourites! I like the fact that it's not the women chasing after him! ;)

Thanks for visiting guys!!!

Amy Ruttan said...

I haven't seen most of these commercials because I don't really watch TV anymore. How sad is that.

THe only one I have seen is HEAD ON. Drives me crazy. And we are so going butt heads, I hate Pepsi give me a Diet Coke any day ... bring it on sista ;)

Vicky said...

Amy - you know this means war, dontcha? ;)

Jaci Burton said...

I hate those HEAD ON commercials with a passion.

And there's the GEICO Cavemen commercials that make me howl. Love them.

Annie said...

Those are awesome! I think my favorite commercials are ESPN ones for SportsCenter!

Happy TT!

JAM said...

I'll have to check the links later, I'm on a UNIX machine at work (on break). It doesn't have the right stuff on it to let me watch videos.

I do think Ashlee Simpson is gorgeous, but I don't like the commercials she's in. Though I did like the one with the Muppets.

JAM said...

Oops, sorry. I meant JESSICA Simpson.

Qtpies7 said...

I thoroughly enjoyed those! I LOVE the Mastercard one, I've had that in my favorites for some time now.
I did enjoy the condom commercials, but I still love having kids, hehe. Check out my TT! Mine is more "why NOT to use condoms" hehe.
Another funny vid on youtube is Darth vader caught by police, check it out! Or the Stratos commercial.

Tink said...

Great list, thanks for entertaining me! I just knew the Pepsi one (sorry I'm a diet Coca-Cola fan), the rest is new for me.
Thank you for visiting my music TT.

Michelle said...

That Nicoderm Patch commercial is my absolute favourite right now. Every time it comes on I kill myself laughing. I swear it should be a pms commercial. ROFL

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I didn't recognize any of these commercials (but then I'm not in Canada)...that last one freaked me out!

Happy T13!

Vicky said...

Jaci - I like the caveman commercials too. It's funny though, some ppl don't get it. My sister does the huh? face every time we see one!

Annie - I know diddly squat about ESPN so I don't know which one's your talking about, but I'll keep my eyes open now! :)

Jam - Let me know what you think. Yeah, that commercial is disturbing to me. I agree she's pretty I just think she needs a friggin' brain transplant.

Vicky said...

Qtpies7 - I'm glad you liked them. Yeah, that MC commercial kills me.

Tink - No comment! ;)

Michelle - Heeheee! I think that's why I like it so much it reminds me of someone I know... not me of course. ;)

Alyssa - Welcome to our (not all) Canadian commercials. Hope you enjoyed them!

Thanks for visiting guys!

Rene said...

Umm...I tivo everything so I run through the commercials. There are these Charles Schwab commercial I hate. So of course dh rewinds them and plays them again and again.

I like the Visa commercial with McGyver.

Vicky said...

Rene - ;) Tivo! Not fair!

spyscribbler said...

Holy crapola!!! That kid in the condom commercial is something else! I loved the other condom commerical, too. (Sheesh, I only pick the condom commercials to talk about? What does that say about me, LOL?)

Vicky said...

Spyscribbler - I picked two condom commercials to post on my TT what does that say about me? LOL! ;)

Julia said...

WOW that was fun list! I crack up at some of your comments though - very funny! I agree about Jessica Simpson commerical..urgh!

There is this one commerical I don't like..it the Dock pant commerical, where you hear musics playing and then you start to get into the music when all of the sudden you hear "Go boys go!..." geez that took me out of the dancing mood and I just think "uh?"....I see a man not a boy....*roll eyes* LOL

Happy T13!

Vicky said...
