    Your right James! You'll never see me put anything lame like that over here.  ::)
    That didn't stay on long.They already pulled the plug on it. Well anyway, it was a really lame clip of Sugar Sugar, by the Archies.

  • Giff,

    I don't know WTF is up with Norton 2004. I can never download any tunes from here. They all end up as a file name and 0 bytes. Firewall on/off... doesn't matter. Can you send it to me direct at jr vass @ comcast (dot) net ?

    Re: TV Commercials - "The Bucket is Back"

  • This TV commercial is an affront to anyone with an IQ higher than one ...

    The commercial -
    A woman comes home with a KFC bucket and announces to her chicken-starved husband that this bucket was cooked without ANY trans fats, the husband timidly asks, "and that means ...?", to which the woman replies, "The Bucket is Back". After this statement, the husband begins greedily munching on the bucket's contents.

    What a crock of doo-doo!!! It may be true that the chicken was cooked without the use of trans fats, but - unless it was baked in an oven with a minimum of fats, it STILL was deep fried with some sort of cooking oil, and if it was an oil without trans fats, it probably was an oil used for decades before trans fats were invented, which means it most likely tastes better, but can still clog your arteries, so what's the big deal??

    BTW -
    Most trans fats consumed today are industrially created as a side effect of hydrogenation of plant oils — a process developed in the early 1900s. The end effect of hydrogenation is to add hydrogen atoms to unsaturated fats, making them more saturated. These more saturated fats have a higher melting point and a reduced tendency for oxidation, resulting in a longer shelf-life. However, eating trans fats also increases the risk of coronary heart disease, thus the reason KFC is touting their so-called "healthy" deep fried products.

    Don't get me wrong - I love a bucket 'o chicken as well as the next guy, but don't tell me I'm eating something that's good for my health. I KNOW it was deep fried long before I decided to eat it.

  • I went to "Big Boy" (The kid in the checkered pants holding up the double hamburger.)

    I used to be able to eat that, fries, slaw & salad. I ate the slaw, 1/3 of the fries, and 1/2 the hamburger. My cow-orker ordered the chicken breast fillet thing. The damn thing was bigger than the 8" plate and he only ate half!

    Oversize portions are what is killing us. Not trans-fat. I had to take home 3/4 of a $6 Caeser Salad today. Unbelievable the portion sizes today.

  • The recent KIA commercial is a most befuddling thing. It features a KIA Sportage carrying around what appears to be a giant sucker (the tootsie pop kind) strapped to the top of the car, and wherever the driver and passengers stop to take in scenery, they plant this sucker in the ground near them and the vehicle.

    If I were trying to sell these vehicles to the viewing public, I wouldn't advertise the fact that the buyer was a HUGE sucker for owning this piece 'o crap.    ???     :P    :-[

  • A recent "Safe Auto Insurance" commercial (the one who made the fictional "phone representative" named Justin Case popular) has begun airing a commercial of odd purportions. This commercial (which I have not found a copy of on YouTube, it must be really new) during the final moment of it, states that you could be pulled over if you are suspected of doing so without insurance ... ?!

    HOW could anyone drive down the road and give anyone else the slightest notion they are driving without insurance?
    (one single exception ... if there is a check license & insurance roadblock and someone obviously attempts to avoid it ... but wouldn't the police be watching for that anyway?)

  • A recent holiday commercial for Swanson broth shows a woman choosing an "ordinary" can of chicken broth and then witnessing the turkey and veggies fleeing from her shopping cart. The nitpick here is that when the turkey skitters around the corner, its gobble sounds amazingly like a chicken cackle.

  • Recent commercials for the weight loss pill called "Alli" states that the pill blocks about 25% of the fat you eat, and that for every two pounds you lose, Alli will help you lose one more. A two to one ratio translates into 33% of the fat being lost is due to Alli's help. If Alli only blocks 25% of the fat you eat, how does it help you lose 33% of the lost weight? It would seem to me that for every 3 pounds lost, Alli would help to lose one more.

  • Two glaring nitpicks occur during the Road Runner Extreme commercial featuring two college age girls, an aberrant washing machine, and a Dad. The girl at the computer is online searching for help in getting their washing machine to stop going nuts while the second is at the washer obviously lost as to what to do. The girl at the computer looks at several help screens, then decides to call her Dad on webcam phone. The girls ask for help, and the Dad immediately says, "Did you try to unplug it?" The girls unplug the washer, give a grateful sigh of relief, and then the Dad says, "I'll call a plumber." The daughter says, "A cute one?" To which the Dad says a terse "No."

    Glaring nitpick #1 ~ the washing machine the second girl was hopping around trying to stop overflowing is a top loading machine, while all the help screens the girl at the computer sees feature a front loading machine. No wonder all the help they found sucked.

    Glaring nitpick #2 ~ the Dad says, "I'll call a plumber." That's the last person you would want to work on a broken washing machine. The Maytag repairman would have been a much better choice.

  • This commercial is Texas centric - AAA Texas sells insurance by showing glowing persons hawking how well they were treated by AAA, one woman at the end of the TV spot says, "I tell everyone to get a quote, it's free!"

    In honor of MAD Magazine, here is the TV commercial I'd LIKE to see ...

    "I tell everyone to get a quote, even though they tell me to piss off and mind my own business."

  • A recent Priceline.com TV commercial has Shatner climbing an office tower with suction cups on the outside glass. He cuts a hole in the glass and talks to a couple, after which he grabs the male and flings him out the window through the hole he cut. In all the shots, his hands are grasping the suction cups on the outside of the glass. After he throws the man out the window, the reverse shot of him and the woman watching the man fall has Shatner grasping the suction cup from inside the glass through the hole he cut.

  • Giff Me, did you happen to see the commercial for Savannah lawyer, Jamie Casino?  Written and directed by Jamie Casino, it aired during the 2014 Super Bowl.
    I don't know this fellow, but I thought it was an unusual commercial.  If you ever have any comments on it, I'd be interested in reading them.

  • Please be advised that I think the message of the TV commercial I am about to nitpick is sound and should be harkened to ...
    but the TV commercial of an older woman covered in a sheet being swabbed clean by her son, and then she tells the story of how her smoking habit led to her stroke and subsequent need for baths by health professionals and sometimes her son needs scrutiny (um, what's another word for scrutiny?) ... based on what I have witnessed in life AND by Larry's own speech patterns after his stroke, shouldn't this woman and young man be actors? She is speaking WAY too clearly to have been the sufferer of a stroke.

    That being said, maybe I'm all wet here and there are sufferers of strokes that can speak just as clearly and succinctly as they could before ... if so, then wet me
