Thread Name: Dumb commercials on TV
Subject: RE: Dumb commercials on TV
I generally don't watch commercials. So I can't really comment on which is the dumbest. I have a good sense of timing, and when a commercial break starts, I switch to another channel and switch back when my "alarm" goes off and says that the show has started again. The Geico commercials are so ubiquitous that I have not been able to totally avoid them. But I sure as hell don't use their service. Did you know, BTW, that it happens to be pretty lousy insurance? S'probably why they have to advertise so much!

Anyway, when I am not flipping channels, I tape my shows for later viewing and just fast-forward through the annoyances. All of this is why the advertisers are abandoning traditional media and trying to figure out how to "beat" these new trends.
