Why does the stupid click-bait ad for "miracle weight loss" that's on every website use a stock photo of someone who has been kneeling on pebbles?

Evidently, if I don't get NFL Direct Ticket, that makes me a small, high voiced, artsy, lesser man.

Or maybe it means I don't care about the non Bears teams in the NFL and they charge too much for something that I don't want.

Is Apple going to sue Samsung for copying their plan of using terrible/annoying songs in their ads?

That BMO commercial with the 4 year old trying to use a cell phone to control things around the house disturbs me for "bad imaginary parenting" reasons

Nissan commercials, they do one commercial a year and then flood the market. They did a poor job of trying to make it seem like the woman knows football.

If the guy in that ad is really a big enough fan to be excited to go to the game, he's going to know really damn quickly if his girlfriend is driving him to the stadium. In the ad it's only right at the end that he realizes what's happening.

Maybe he's never been to the stadium.

"Leggo my Eggo" texts the girl sitting right next to the toaster where the piece of yellow cardboard-posing-as-food sits getting colder and more inedible by the second.
