I cannot stand the Weight Watchers commercial with Jennifer Hudson screaching. I do think she has a beautiful voice, but that commerical GRATES. Not to mention, I don't believe she lost that weight on WW, but probably lipo and/or some other surgical procedure.

These commercials are an insult to human intelligence.

indeed. ever notice in those weight loss commercials the person is wearing the exact same clothing in the before and after? hmmmmmm - do they think we're so stupid that we won't notice the "after" clothes magically shrunk to fit the new lean bod? how insulting to the intelligence indeed. the "after" clothes should be loose, not form-fitting. can you say digital alterations?

Great that this fun thread is back. While many commecials like that cartoon one is really annoying, many commercials are really fun in their stupidity on this thread.

The commercials I hate the most are the ones for "medicines" that have been created to cure brand-new "conditions" and "syndromes" (actually, of course, nothing more than a way for pharmaceutical companies to make more money than they already do!)

When they get to the part where, by law, they have to tell you about potential side effects, all of a sudden the volume drops way down and the announcer starts talking much faster. Heart attack...bleeding ulcers...suicidal thoughts. Now, honestly, what do you have that's bad enough to make you pop a pill like that?

I might be biased because my father works in pharmaceuticals, but I blame people who just take any pill they're given, not the companies. They have a right to sell whatever they want and convince people to buy them, but it's up to consumers to decide whether or not to take it. I've said no to my doctor after being prescribed something I knew was highly addictive.

Haha I totally get that. Like restless leg syndrome. Or (being a girl) stupid things like "heavy periods" since when is that a disorder that requires medication besides a heating pad and a box of chocolate.
