    I know that most of us get annoyed by commercials, and use this pause to get a snack, drink, etc. But, the other night, I watched a commercial that actually made me bawl! (I even started to cry again the next day when I was telling my daughter about it...) I only saw it once, on...

    Watching TV today, I saw a number of "signs of the times". Wondering if that happens where you are too? Here's some of what I saw today: - Commercial for a newspaper with a special employment section with jobs in Australia, Europe, USA, etc (any other countries you can think of, basically!)...

    I'm getting so tired of commercials in which someone states...."it's the best decision I've/we've ever made!" Really? Buying a mineral makeup was a better decision than deciding to have your kids? Or not have kids? Buying a mattress was a better/more important decision than marrying your...

    Another thread made me think of this commercial from growing up. I loved the commercial but hated what it meant. Their can can sale was an AWESOME sale and it only happened a couple of times a year. This meant, as mom is a frugalista as well, lugging and storeing CASES of cans several times...

    I'm not sure why, but the new Zappos ones drives me crazy. All of them! And you?

    Has anyone noticed way more? I know the start of the new year you will always hear certain things like diets/gyms, but I hear so many companies on so many radio stations and tv commercials. So many channels. (geez I had no idea how many consolidations companies where out there and each of them...

    I’ll say it simply: I’m disgusted by the amount of advertising in the world today. I’ve been gradually working up to this fit, but the tipping point came the other day in a public bathroom. It was in a mall and the toilet paper was pre-printed with the name of a restaurant that is located in the...

    DH was telling me about a commercial he saw and wanted me to check out feedthepig.com. It's actually a public service campaign to encourage people to budget and save. The commercials are also on the web site. Pretty cute, lol. http://www.feedthepig.org/AboutUs.aspx

    If you've seen the Wendy's Baconator commercials.. you know what I'm talking about. Basically.. its a man wearing red pigtails that kind of loop out (similar to pippy longstocking). I have no idea how to go about making one of these and thought that I would put the question out here to see if...

    Ok, normally commercials annoy the snot out of me, especially this new trend of repeating the commercial 2-3 times in the 30 second slot to REALLY drill it into your head. But for some reason that sleep prescription that shows the guy in the kitchen with Abe Lincoln, the astronaut and the...

    Okey, who is paying attention to the commercials (if its not a team I really care for I still will watch just to see them. I have to say so far the Bud Light commercials have me ROFL. However the diet pepsi/Jackie Chan "stunt double" commercial was pretty funny too. Can't wait to see what's...

    I don't know if anyone else is as "bugged" by the onslaught on political commercials, news coverage of the conventions (for hours on all the channels that we get since we do not have cable) and all the political signs up all over the place. Even the bits of the convention that I did see so far...
