    Macy's has been running this commercial for a while now. Putting aside the fact that a "preview day" means the sale is more than one day, the "ONE DAY SALE! ONE DAY!" theme song/lunatic screaming is pretty awful.

    I guess the "two days!" chant wasn't as catchy

    Well, at least they picked a decent tune for the Easter commercial.
    It's the music in the new one that drives me nuts. It's not good.

    "It's not good" is a massive understatement. Yeah, I'll take Marvin Gaye any day of the week over that other music!

    And there are lots of different groups within "Native American", it's not homogeneous. Native Canadian too.

    Hate, hate the car commercial that mines Jack Kerouac/Terrence Malick vibe with "The East and West are mine... All is beautiful...".
    The worst.

    How 'bout that COPD ad where he's reading from the story book, "and he huffed and puffed..." and the little girl says, "Like you, grandpa?"

    She's so cute. She doesn't care about insurance coverage. She just wrecks her car and blah blah blah.

    And they shouldn't do it. As a fellow Canucklehead, Bingo, you know that any sort of Christmas advertising before November 11 here is considered an insult to our veterans. I had to explain that to my Filipino wife- over there they start preparations for Christmas in bleedin' September!

    Some new car commercial where a lady says, "Santa, I wanna go fast," pronouncing fast as "feee-ast".

    Would this be a bad time to suggest that the dude rapping how about Verizon has made him awesome is deeply unpleasant?
