Anything by [url]vat19.com[/url]. They are the masters of making advertisements, and they should move to television. Imagine if the bacon lollipop (or whatever is next) was advertised right before the 2016 election on every major news outlet!

I know, right?

Also (though Roby and UMD already covered this), National Guard recruitment commercials. AUGH.

When I saw this, my jaw dropped. I thought it was in supremely poor taste.

Imagine being a parent who lost a child (especially recently, or one who looked like that). You're watching the Super Bowl with your friends, all the "fathers are special" commercials are kind of hitting hard but you're holding it together. Then that comes on. I don't know about you, but I would have a really hard time continuing to watch the game, and I would definitely not feel inspired to seek that insurance carrier???

I felt supremely uncomfortable and anxious, and I've never even been a mother. I get what they were going for but man was that mishandled. I think it's the over-the-top accusatory tone that plays a big part of why it's so uncomfortable. It's an important message but like, come on, time and tone, people.

The one redeeming factor was John Francis Daley made some funny tweets about it.

And that's not the only commercial of why people are outraged:


I also heard people went P.O. mode over one single line in this commercial: "Sorry, it's a boy."

I'm assuming these people have never heard of Sarah Silverman before.

HOW DID I NEVER SEE THIS THREAD BEFORE. :shock: Now that I don't own a telly and watch everything without commercials looking them up online actually became entertaining. :lol:

...and WTF Nationwide, that's a really cheap, irresponsible and unimaginative way to do that. :|

If people got mad over that I wonder how they'd react to Silverman's stand-up comedy.
