Ads I Hate

I really don't like commercials on television.  I don't think anyone likes them much.  Is it my imagination, or are there more of them per hour than there used to be?  If they want us to buy their product, why do they make them so annoying?  

Oh, there are a few that are cute or clever.  Most of them, though are just annoying.  Many are way too loud, with blaring music and grating voices.  There are a few that I really, really hate.  One example is shown above.  An aging football player talking about his prostate and how he always has to look for a bathroom.  Here is my reaction every time I see this:  I don't want to hear about your prostate!  

Okay, that was my rant for today.

Another thing to be grateful for in life - the mute button on the remote! We have those ads too, but with the wife looking sympathetically at the husband's miserable face in the bathroom mirror. Then she rests her head on his shoulder in sympathy. Always time for me to make myself a coffee while they struggle on.

I love the mute button! I had to chuckle at your description of the ad you see.

We have not reached this particular low (yet) in the UK, although there are still plenty that I find annoying.
(I wonder how much they had to pay him to discuss his prostate with the US?)

I always wonder about that too. He must need the money!
