    Those Skittles commercials do not make me want to buy skittles.
    for instance the one where the kid has skittles pox, and the girl eats one off
    his face, disgusting. and worse yet, the most recent one is the abraham lincoln looking guy working out and sweating skittles. What the hell are these advertisers thinking.:puke Any thoughts?

    There was a commercial once for sugar free fruit juice, though I can't remember the name. It showed two glasses of juice, one being surrounded by bees, and the other untouched by the bees. The product they were trying to sell was the one that the bees didn't like. I guess this may work on people who hate bees, but not on me.

    Also, not really a commercial, but I think the name " I can't believe its not butter" should be shortened considerably to "It's Not Butter" :D

    Watching that one (if you meant the green "Flexable" hose), I saw something funny. Right after the guy struggling with the hose-reel & wiping sweat, there is a little girl walking-back the product while holding the sprayer open. "goes back to its original size in minutes!"

    Must be a LOT of minutes! Notice how old she's gotten by the time she's holding the collapsed hose in 1 hand and smiling for the camera!:lol

    Not that I'm knocking the woman she's become by that shot; she looks about a generation younger than I am. But that's still a lot of minutes to drain that hose! Best regards.

    The ones that say 79% of 342 women found this product.........
    Who the f*ck can work that out?

    All testing should be done on 100, then we'd know.

    Easy enough arithmetics JJ, Answer 79%!
    0.79 x 342 = 270 which is a pretty convincing majority.
    The more the merrier but yeah the answer is always obvious which of course is the percentage and always converted out of 100 :)
    Sorry dude but obvious to us humble scientific folks.

    When I was much younger I'd often think that any feminine menstrual necessity commercials were terrible and I hated them.

    I find the new Old Spice commercials to be absolutely ridiculous. You know, the one about the guy having a shower follow him everywhere. It just seems to mimic the over-the-top ridiculousness of commercials these days.

    You don't like the walrus one? Watching a woman French kissing a walrus while his girlfriend watches doesn't make you want Skittles immediately?

    Any commercial that ends with someone yelling "BUT WAIT THATS NOT ALL, IF YOU ORDER IN THE NEXT 10 MINUTES"!

    And "...if you buy within the next 10 minutes we'll give you a second one for free. Just pay the shipping and handling fee." Funny and insulting at the sake time.
