I hear the new Old Spice commercial is a doozy.

I don’t mind vanity threads, generally. But a thread generated because someone is drunk and had a puerile thought? Yah.

I have to admit, it threw me for a loop.

I was watching the television with no sound, and...I couldn’t make heads or tails out of it!

I called to my wife in the kitchen: “Honey...there is the WEIRDEST commercial for something on TV!”

Songs that say “I know you’re a mean old daddy but I like you.” I don’t believe mean daddy’s should be liked. Arrrrrggggghhhhh!!!

Don't put ringing telephones in the background, and don't try to sell me acne medicine by shouting so loud the windows rattle.

...and if those kids and dogs are hungry, put the d@mned camera down and feed them!

I always assumed it was a lack of self-respect. Then she came out with Mingus and it was confirmed.

I can’t bring myself to watch TV, I’m just not wired to condition myself to the commercials and logos.

This commercial is pretty funny.

Pistachios Commercial - Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong-Un

When they show it to Chubby...Dennis may very well disappear.

You didn’t like Paprika Plains or The Jungle Line? Much of her later work was powered by her musical arrangements, not so much of being a victim as earlier in Blue or Ladies of The Canyon. Taylor Swift is said to be playing Joni in a future film called Girls Like Us, about Carole King, Carly Simon, and Miss Joni.

Phones ringing; computer keyboards clacking (with words being spelled out on the TV screen); the man being a doofus while the kids and women have their act so totally together...

Oh my gosh you are so correct! As soon as one of those ads come on I have to mute or it sends the dog into a barking rant. So annoying.

IIRC "The Jungle Line" is from The Hissing of Summer Lawns, not Mingus. another forgettable effort.

I think Joni was thoroughly a child of the 'Sixties' which for practical purposes went from the summer of 1967 until the fall of 1974. Joni hit the high note of her career sometime between For the Roses and Court and Spark. After that... Meh.

These commercials...

Especially, when the promoters are pro-abortion.

Those are mine also but add blacks and minorities to the kids and women. Whitey ALWAYS gets schooled and/or is made to look like a complete idiot or a stumbling non athletic slug.

Yes, there is definitely a pecking order — and the black person is never at the bottom of it in commercials.

Car horns and police sirens while I’m driving are annoying.
