What's great about that avatar is I can't help but hear whatever you write in his voice.

Me?  I got this wolf here.

In general, I dislike any commercials where music is played over someone talking. I know any commercial might lead in or lead out with music. But, I do not care for talking with some shitty fucking music playing behind it. Whomever though of this is the Devil!!
The unintentionally funniest one I recall like that was for a gas appliance dealer.  I think it was during Barry Farber's program on WMCA in the 1980s.  I phoned in to call att'n to it, asked the lady if she recognized the tune, she said, "Yes: Mash."  I said, "Suicide Is Painless [it was instrumental]...for a gas appliance dealer.  She drew in a breath thru her teeth, then said, "Oh, that's right!"  They changed it shortly afterward.

Maybe Kirk Cameron or Clint Eastwood will make something that will get your interest back, eh?

LOL.  So how was that Power Rangers movie? <chortle>  I hear they are showing Wonder Woman for women only in Austin, TX.  Be sure to get your ticket. ;D

Any commercial put out by the Ad Council.  You hear them all the time as filler when there aren't enough legit, cash paying commercials to be played.  They are so syrupy sweet that I feel like I'm going to get sugar diabetes just by listening to them.
In general, yes, but they also had that great one about opening the ketchup bottle.  (Co-sponsored?  Co-produced?  Or Ad Council alone?)

PSAs (not necessarily from the Ad Council, which formed to sell US involvement in World War 2) include some of the most awful and some of the best.  The awful include spots that count as PSAs only because of being run by a not-for-profit; I'm thinking now of the Lung Ass'n ad that's so ridiculous when you realize all it's doing is touting their success & continued effort on behalf of coercive anti-tobacco (not even necessarily anti-smoking) efforts -- why don't they publicize the actual scientific research they've funded?  Great is one I hope won a Cleo: the Credit Fairy phone call, by the banking interests.

That reminds me:  Bert Stubblebine's wife, Dr. Rima Laibow, was going to participate in seancing Bert using Bob Blumetti's runic Ouija board at my house, but I preferred to go for a walk with some other pagan friends on the Sussex Branch trail instead that day.  Latest plan is to do the seance at Bob B.'s instead.  In case you didn't know, Gen. Stubblebine was the one in charge of the projects that movie made fun of, and he died this winter here in NJ.

Salute!

What a wonderful new genre; Watch me piss and miss the toilet or See me make the mess I always bitch about having to clean but never do.

Trump called this piece of shit the other day to tell him how much he admired him, oh and telling him that two US submarines were parked off NK. Anyway Trump's new best despot friend has rape in his cannon of weapons.

Quote
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, giving a pep talk to his troops in the country's restive south, exhorted the soldiers to go all out in fighting Islamic militants and joked that under martial law they could even commit rape with impunity.

"The consequences of martial law and the ramifications of martial law, I and I alone would be responsible. Just do your jobs, I'll take care of the rest," he told his soldiers on Friday while visiting Iligan City in the country's Mindanao region.
He then warned against committing human rights violations, before joking: "If you rape three people, I will admit that I did it."

While running for office in 2016, Duterte joked about the 1989 rape and murder of an Australian missionary that took place in Davao City, in the country's southeast, where he was mayor, CNN Philippines reported.
"I was angry she was raped, yes that was one thing. But she was so beautiful, I think the mayor should have been first. What a waste," he said during a campaign rally, according to a CNN Philippines translation of the comments.

I remember that last story. Didn't go well with normal decent people. But maybe that's why Trump admires him? Who knows?
