I agree many commercials do insult people with brains, but they also provide a means to avoid products and have fun poking fun at the comemrcials. (Wheres your game spirit?) LIfe would be boring if we were nto chanlleged mentaly nwo and then! ) ! You have a choice! Watch them or Mute them! (I dont liek the car commercials, theya re broing to me!) We make it a game at my house to write better commericials than what we see on TV! My kids even get into it and they produce their own tape of commercials....its sort of a game at my house to poke fun at the commericals. Its a challenge to do one better then them. Any child can write a commercial! But making them fun is the trick! I geuss that is why I liked the Geico commercial.....

My favorite verse is Hebrews 13:5
"He (G*D) said to me, I will never leave thee nor forsake me"
Also found in many other books: Joshua 1: and Matthew and in the words of Jesus my Messiah!
I also love reading Sauls-Pauls Roman road!
Favorite verse in the New Testament is :Romans 8:1."There is therefore, NOW, no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.... but after the Spirit! My desire!

To avoid having to watch commercials I TIVO everything that is longer than 30 minutes. The short programs I watch as they run, and mute the commercials. They are an insult to any thinking person.

Sorry, LazyButt, if I spoiled what you were intending.
To atone - there's a commercial on TV in the UK just now that sings "Chain Reaction" - I love that song and it gets my toes tapping and shoulders moving, every time!
There's another that I dislike hugely - it's small portions of something with a creamy inner exploding all over the place, it might be to music, I don't know. I find it very offensive.

Its not that I am crazy about the actual commercials, but that we make FUN of them or like aspects about them. I was not trying to promote any commercial! Just trying to get a ride out of them. Me and my daughter like the doggys in them and weird stuff, like what I expressed below. Not pushing any commercial, just which ones you find interesting as per contents not the product they are pushing. Who rembers the products? Not me! Most I will zone out on, but some are so outrageous you have to put your own take on it or go nuts watching them. lol I just love the doggy ones the best! Esp if their is a dashound in them....yo" HOT DOG fan here!

I agree with CMFARRELL, I dislike ads/commercials. Most of the time when you are watching a program that is supposed to be 30 minutes you only have maybe 20 minutes (if you are lucky) of the program and the rest is commercials.

They are so pushy! If you don't buy then you can't be beautiful or healthy. Whether is is for you or you animal.

I'm not a huge fan of adverts/commercials.
I don't like the feeling that so many people are being suckered in to buying things they don't want, don't need and can't afford.
I dislike commercials and ads that promote only the business view of beauty.
I distrust ads that appear to promise all sorts of benefits, and leave the person totally stranded.
I reckon, in general, that advertising companies should be brought before courts of law, to atone for all the lives they have wrecked.
There are more examples I could give, but i think i've probably made my point!

I love that GEICO commercial where these ...Homosapiens cave men are living under rocks and they alway say, "DO YOU LIVE UNDER A ROCK?" and I alway answer and say...
YES, I LIVE UNDER a ROCK.., THE ROCK CHRIST JESUS! I love it when I can add my own references to a commercial for the LRD it gives me a chance to start a conversation abotu the LRD! Lik a slip of the tongue for your spirit! Love it when GD can use a commercial for his Glory! Try it sometimes! Or ...I like it when they have the commercial for the Golden Girls where White says, " Can I tell you something STUPID" , and the other gal replies, "Yes, you can, and like no other! And can do it better! It alway cracks me up! (Me and my daughter said we are the ...Golden Girls!)

But my favorite commercials are when they use dogs, and when they use a Doxie (dashound) I just fall to pieces. They are the cutest commercials for me! Dont you just love commercialswith dogs? Susana
