    I agree-except I LOVE the new commercial for the iPad mini with the iPad and iPad mini, both using the piano apps, playing a duet of "Heart and Soul." :eek: Reminds me of "Big." ;) Love that movie! :up::up:

    I find what I call "cheap" commercials annoying. These are for cheap low quaity products such as Chia pets or those dumb kids slippers with animal faces on them. I enjoy movie trailers if they are not for the same movie over and over again.

    I am getting really tired of those Uverse commercials where the kids are touting the wireless receivers. I just want to reach through the TV and ring their necks.

    I've been catching up on a lot of shows I recorded over the past few months and now I have to go through all those damned political ads again. It was bad enough before the election, now it's just excruciating...

    OMG! I love those commercials, they are hilarious-yes, the kids are annoying, but my niece and nephew say things like that, so I LOL every time!
    "He's only 14 and 1/2, he doesn't have back problems..."
    "You kids today are soft"
    BA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!:D:D:D

    The Gap(?) ones that reunited the Christmas Vacation family are both amusing and creepy.

    There's one - I think it's only in California - that almost always gets an immediate mute from me; the audio is a Hispanic 18-year-old and his mother, and the boy tells the mother that he's not going to college as he was offered a job, but the mother insists that he go to college, while the video shows the boy 10-15 years from now, alternating between having some menial job (a mechanic, I think) and living in a low-end-of-the-market home when he is talking, and being a doctor in an upper-middle-class home when the mother is talking.

    What I would like to see is the next step:
    "Okay, Mom, you've talked me into it - I'll go to college."
    "Have you decided on your degree?"
    "Yes - Pre-Med."
    "Do your father and I look like we can afford to put you through college and medical school?"

    Time Warner Cable.

    Sure, they change the content of the video from time to time, but it's always the same stupid music.
    It's become fingernails on a chalkboard.

    I don't think I've actually seen the whole commercial, but the following one is funny -- (I think for UVerse?) where the one LITTLE KID (very young, I can't judge ages well) is talking to the kid's even younger sibling about (paraphrase) "how hard we had it, we only had 2 tuners if we were lucky"

    (See, even when I think a commercial is funny, I usually skip it.. Though due to too-slow-commercial-skippers at a friend's house, I usually end up seeing commercials at least once.)
