    Sprint's "All Together Now" ads. They are pretentious with a capital P.

    I get what they're trying to do: they're trying to make themselves seem quirky and human and make us think that they're just plain folks and not a greedy, soulless corporation (which of course they are), but the ads just come off as pandering, irritatingly smug and very, very annoying. Plus, as a child of the late 60's, every time a Beatles song is used to shill products in a commercial, a little piece of me dies inside.

    YES, I despise all of these forced advertisments that require me to mute my speakers whenever I visit this forum.

    especially when they could have just used the trumpet playing smurf('harmony smurf' i believe?)-who was always seen playing blowing the horn whenever they had an emergency....but why bother paying tribute to the source material when they could just fit in more nails on a chalkboard moments.

    And now it's Alcoholics Anonymous. God, why can't the moving ads have no audio like Funimation's?

    I mean it, if it isn't them it's always some other annoying ad.
    Aw come on, you expect me to put something witty here?

    I'm getting tired of the non-stop ads for the movie The Change-Up, and I'm especially tired of all the pee and poo jokes Do they really have to include the Lesie Mann on the toilet clip in every single commercial? Is it really that funny?

    It's probably one of the few funny gags in the movie, and the admakers are going with what the filmmakers gave them.
