I did a search for this, but couldn't find anything. And I'm also not sure if this should go here.

I know there are tons of these things, and I want to see them ALL!
I may or may not be doing a paper on these, but if not, it's still interesting.

Here's one:

Yeah, I'm sure eggs are dreaming of being powdered, mixed with water, and eaten.

I hate those! I haven't seen them on the tv lately though. I kind of meant animal related advertisements, but dude HeadOn is probably the most annoying.

I think most of these are actually pretty level-headed, reasonable and clever. I don't get this blog.

Has anyone else seen the 5-hour energy drink commercials that try to convince you that drinking coffee is inconvenient.

You have to put coffee in a drip coffee maker and press the on button! You have to wait in line while someone else makes your coffee! You have to add your own sugar! You have to hold a cup! You have to, yes, drink 6-ounces-or-so of coffee! The horror!

Yes! Those crack me up, especially the way he checks his watch and smugly sits down to read his newspaper. LOOK AT ALL THAT TIME YOU SAVED!

I saw a Jack in the Box ad on the back of a bus the other day that said "A deal for all Americans. Except vegetarians." And a billboard a few years ago for a local steakhouse that promised it was "so good it will make even the most hardcore vegan cheat."

I don't know if they still come on anymore, but those happy cow commercials. Because cows want you to confine them and take their milk!

haha yes! these are great! (by great i mean really awful). are those the same ones that say something like "now you don't have to have the taste of coffee to get the energy!" as if people hate how coffee tastes.

Why are they implying you can be vegetarian and an AMERICAN at the same time?

The commercials where cleaning products are substitues for men and women are sexually satisfied through cleaning. (ie: Swiffer, Mr. Clean)

I haven't seen those in awhile, either, but they used to enrage me.

Oh, every paper towel ad has kids or a schlub husband spilling juice & the wife never says, "Clean that shiitake up yourself!"

I have a burning grudge against Dockers now. FOREVER.

Although they made my paper on gender and media representation easy.
