Commercials teach me great things

like all kia owners are stupid, and dont know how to fill their car with gas.

And that US Cellular customers cant read, so they have to go to their wireless company to read them their bills.


way to go marketing!

I didn't take US Cellular that way.
I thought -they are so customer service oriented & friendly that they don't discriminate against illiterate people.
What would have made this commercial perfect was if the girl actually led the customer to a reading class.
Use our cell phones, help wipe out illiteracy.Gee I fell warm & fuzzy all over!

Unfortunately there are many English speaking ,American born illiterate people in this country, & NO it is not because they are lazy &/or stupid.

TV in general wether it be sitcoms, commercials etc, basically teaches you that all white men especially fathers are complete dunces.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I have to agree. Why is it that shows like Family Guy, The Simpsons, Malcom in the middle, King of the Hill, etc., portray fathers as complete dunces?

comedians do the same shit, cause its "funny" that men are complete dipshits who cant take care of themselves and are ruled by the women in their lives.

its the new fad. bill maher says it pretty well

The one lately that makes me wanna throw a coffee mug at my television is some arthritis medicine commercial. This older lady is reading from her journal about how bad the pain in her hands was that day. If your hands hurt so fucking bad, dont write in your damn journal.

I always have this vision of a bunch of suits sitting around watching these piece of crap commercials for the first time as they are presented by the advertising companies. They are all laughing and giving each other high fives, thinking they are gonna sell a ton of carpet or computers, not realizing what a total turd it actually is.

Home depot commercials, ALL OF THEM.

Honey, Lets get a new dining room, "YES!"(watching football, ignoring her, being stupid)

Again in the Kia commercial, the wife is shaking her head watching the husband stretch the gas nozzle to the other side of the car while she is smiling. Now lets see him crack the fuel line as fuel sprays allover the car as he steps on a packet of matches and consumes them both.

I agree with you there. This is the reason why. White men have became the Asians of CLSB. You can't poke fun at minorities or women without reprisal. But if you insult a white man, no one gives a damn. Try and make a cartoon about a black Homer Simpson or sitcom of a Black Al Bundy and watch the press conference and calls for firings.

I feel for my whiteys. Hang in there brothers. We shall overcome.

This is kind of off topic, but since we are on the subject of White males, I was having lunch with a couple of old coworkers last week and one of them was talking about how he has become the minority in the office and how upset he was about it. I told him, "Hey buddy, just walk out the door and you'll be part of the majority again." It kind of put of everything in perspective for him. At least I hope it did.

I would say 'Chill, its just TV' but sadly a good portion of our society lives and dies for TV programming. Dont even get me started on "Reality TV"...
