Overplayed Obnoxious Holiday Commercials 2011

Mon Nov 21, 2011 11:25 pm

We haven't even hit Turkey day and I already have some Hateraide choices for overdone over the top, in your face spend spend holiday commercials. In no particular order of pukeworthiness....  

1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NB0y-1SG0gA
Please, whoever made this one must have done some bad crack cocaine. The broadway musical style of commercial his hurl inducing whether its Christmas themed or not!

2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wer7b29mreA&feature=related

She's back! the you tube link above is a montage from last year but she's backl in 2011 trumpeting Tarjay. Only thing different this year? Target opens at midnight. I'd love to do a spoof where the Target Lady is on the toilet after Turkey dinner laying a loaf but she has to get to the 2 day Tarjay sale. She jumps off the bowl with a train that has not quite left the station.

3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp65078XR-0 Uuummm haven't we been there before? If you thought the Nissan commercial was bad, this one for the axis of evil retail outlets brings you this. I'm sorry folks this ones even gayer and hoakier than Nissans sing fest.

With these commercials who needs waterboarding? At Gitmo do away with the water boarding and other physical torture and make those prisoners of war watch a 24 hour loop of the above commercials especially 1 and 3. They'll sing like canaries.

Honorable mention: Voted the worst holiday commercial from last year due to its being overplayed ad - nauseam.

A hipster's wet dream!

This picture says a 1000 words about crass overkill holiday advertising!

I saw a commercial today that used a modified version of Rebecca Black's "Friday". I don't know who it was for, and I don't really care. And I only heard it once, but I'd still count it as overplayed.

Oh no. Not the hipster Hyundai commercial. I pray that it doesn't return this year.

Talk about coincidences: I just saw this abortion played during Acces Hollywierd.
Poor Rebecca Black she actually is not a bad singer but that damn song now bastardized by Kohls. Kohls being part of the evil axis of retailing. They seem to have some of the shittiest commercials.


To all you holiday materialistic lovers: Here it is... Just may beat out the Target lady for badness...

We don't really know that - that song was so horribly auto-tuned we have no idea what her voice actually sounds like.

I knew it! LOL. I actually liked that commercial A LOT. It makes me laugh all the time, I do understand why some people find it annoying.

Yes, it's from Kohl's. The funny thing is that I'm watching the Amazing Race online (on CBS) and that commercial just showed up.
It's a cultural thing.

Why take one of the crappiest songs ever and add insult to injury and make it a holiday advertisement? Oh I forgot, this one was from the axis of evil retail stores Kohls. That Friday song is in my bottom feeder of music from hell almost as bad as Mambo # 5!

zippyjet-I've wanted to do a rant on crappy commercials but never got around to doing that. I thought I was the only one who got pissed off by these ads, but I can see that I'm not alone.

Seems like these ads get worse every year. By next Thanksgivings I might be throwing rocks at my TV every time I see an annoying holiday commercial, or the marketing people who came up with this crap.

There are a lot of us! I feel the people who come up with this shit think we are all a bunch of retards! And what drugs are they doing? Seems especially the Kohls commercials are Gay. Not that there's anything wrong with Gay folks. These smarmy broadway music and dance make everyone in this great country of ours stupid and shallow.
This is one of the reasons this time of the year makes me want to puke. Again, if I had the time and money I'd be travelling. I know others have said other countries make as big a deal or more out of the holidays. I can deal with the festivities and even if you want to put up your holiay paraphanalia in August but, I detest these stupid commercials and commercial bullshit aspect of these holidays! Remember a few years ago, a woman was trampled to death! By shitheads who wanted to get a deal on stuff. It's much ado about nothing (the material commercialism spend till you are even deeper in debt.) I hope this all backfires on these retail entities. And we can then have the last laugh.

"Target 2 Day Sale"

I love the Rocky montage (in Rocky), but this just makes me want to........I cant say, but I hate this commercial.

Nov. 26 at 4AM!!!

I have a friend who has to go to work in the mall at 11:30pm on Thanksgiving to get ready for a midnight sale at the mall by me. On THANKSGIVING.

[Peter Griffin]Umm...WHAT?[/Peter Griffin]

Friday is, and I'm aware of the implications of what I'm saying, undeniably the worst song ever made by anything passing off as a Homo sapiens.

She has absolutely zero talent. I take that back, she has the "talent" to surround herself with people who can market her shitty, shitty music and make it popular. May God have mercy on our souls.

I swore I heard her (Rebecca Black) sing a few bars acapella and not that shitty song. Sadly, that Friday song was foisted upon her and she took the bate. If she keeps her hot bod when she turns 18 look for her in Maxim or Playboy. BTW, when she sings that Friday song her voice sounds like Erkel arrgh!


Of course in todays world if you have a cute face, nice knockers and shapley legs you can sound like Precious with a Sinus infection and still be famous. All one needs to do is subject your ears to Britney, Katy Leggy Perry and Jessica Simpson to name a few.

I say make a spoof where both the Target Lady and the Kohls Friday Lady gets mugged and assaulted by a group of munchkins on crack!
