Rude, obnoxious know-it-all kids should be used to sell birth control. They certainly can't sell anything else.

That smarmy kid in the Eucrisa (for people with eczema) and his "and it's steroid free" comment makes to want to throw things at the TV.

Wasn't there a foreign commercial showing a kid throwing a mega-tantrum at a store, and it ended up being for condoms?

Indeed, there was. I hope my fellow Snopesters had enough sense to not open it while at work.

I don't remember it being NSFW. I don't consider contraception NSFW.

I was more thinking about the looks you'd get, what with all the screaming sounds coming from your computer and...look I'm just gonna level with you: this was a joke that sounded a lot funnier in my head, but now I realize it has completely fallen flat in reality and if it's okay with you, I'd like to bail out immediately.

That is an ad series for "Stan" (I think) featuring a family using the service. The latest one has the Mum laughing and laughing and laughing as she watches stuff on her phone. Note to the ad makers, only crazy people or the villain in super hero cartoons laugh that much. Seriously it very disturbing.

I can't stand the Elite Singles dating site adds. I'm sure they could come up with ways to seem more pretentious, but it would take work.

Oh, god. I saw the ad on TV and my brain blocked it out until I read this post just now.

I imagine it must appeal to a certain kind of person; may they all find each other and live happily ever after.

There's a Glade room spray commercial that to me sends the wrong message. They show a little shot of mist coming out of the bottle, then a woman swims into an elegant room full of liquid. Is that all perfume? Yuck!
