    Anything "Nutrisystem" featuring Marie Osmond. I'm ready to throw something at the TV, except that it's a new TV and I can't afford another one.

    I hate that Truvada commercial. I’m on the pill, I’m on the pill. Ugh.

    I hate that anti heart attack one. The one where all these people are pretty much saying thanks for taking your darn pills so I wasn't inconvenienced by you having a heart attack today.

    It's just awful.

    I think I know which one that heart attack commercial is. I've mostly blocked it out, but I remember seeing a commercial where I was thinking...wtf? Like somehow someone's heart attack just really put a kink in their plans and their day was ruined.

    I think I kind of love the Peloton ad just for the Twitter responses...but it's terrible. And apparently not available on YouTube, so it's definitely at one of these twitter links.

    I hate the Peloton ads so much. I don't understand who they are marketing these things to except that they are 100% marketing them on the wrong platforms at the wrong times with the wrong content to the wrong demographic. Like, I'm up at 2am watching Futurama on Hulu eating crackers in bed while the ads play over and over again every five minutes watching the fit rich lady in her giant glass house watching the tv attached to her fancy exercise machine with the jazzy music playing. I am not in the target demographic for a $3,000 stationary bike people.

    Uggh! Excedrin had an ad out several years ago where the tag line was: “Don’t let your migraine become someone else’s migraine.”

    In other words, don’t inconvenience anyone by having a migraine.

    I have suffered migraines so that commercial triggered me big time so i sent a strongly worded email to the makers of Excedrin.

    Ha, I've seen the ad several times on TVLand, and yeah I'm sure all the old ladies (like me) watching Andy Griffith in the morning are rushing out to buy one.

    I saw the ad for the first time yesterday on Twitter. As someone whose hours at work have been cut and I didn't even have enough to cover my bills this month and had to dig out my spare change just to eat, the commercial turned my stomach. I want to be fucking rich and so it would be hypocritical of me to begrudge anyone their $2300 stationary bike, but it's also fucking ridiculous. The husband comes off as the dude from 50 Shades of Grey. The wife doesn't seem to leave the house after becoming clinically obsessed with her bike and it's preposterous that she's nervous to try it and dumb that she manages to keep at it for 5 whole days, then a year, and then awkwardly vlogs the whole thing and sits with her husband and watches the video the following Christmas. And there's some unnecessary child roaming around in the background and it kind of makes you feel like maybe someone should hotline that situation because I'm getting major neglect vibes. And mom doesn't quite seem OK mentally, maybe dim at best - it's the year 2019 and she's excited that her talking bike knows her name. It made me wonder if she was OK.

    The cherry on top of the Peleton is that there is also a monthly subscription of $40 so said bike can talk to you and know your name and shit.

    And...one person on Twitter said, and I don't think they were kidding, something to the effect that sure the commercial is corny, but people who don't have Pelotons don't understand the "visceral" attachment people get to them. Sorry, but that didn't help matters.

    i don't have a peloton and not sure i've seen the ad you guys are talking about ... only the ad with the skinny chick in the YUGE house with windows working out. but the people i know who have them LOVE them. and the ones who don't want one (not me).

    I hate that Peloton ad so much...mostly because I've seen it a bazillion times and can't get that freaking song out of my head.

    Loved the Twitter backlash b/c so many were thinking what I was thinking... what journey? why is she scared? How in the hell did this change her life?

    One for the Brits. The Walkers crisps advert with Marian Carey phoning in a performance of All I Want For Christmas before snatching up the last packet and forcing down a grimace as she touches a crisp to her teeth in an attempt to look like she's eating it.

    I don't know how it's faring on Twitter but it is getting slammed hard on the official Facebook video ad.
