Commercial I like: The goofy slacker singing about how he didn't check his credit report online and now he has to work at a seafood restaurant/live in his inlaws' basement.
Except a couple things always, always bug me and Rob about the living in the basement thing. First, he sings that if his "dream girl" hadn't messed up her credit, they'd be living in a "pleasant suburb." Um, what guy in a band that you know is dreaming of living in a suburb? Pleasant hipster city neighborhood, maybe. Also, even if her credit was a mess, he obviously was no great money manager himself, or he'd be able to buy a house on his own, so quit with the blame game, Slacker Dude! It also bugs Rob that the guy is obviously lip-synching, but that escaped me.
Commercial that perplexes me: The 20something who's going to buy mom a crystal turtle but instead decides what she wants is for him to wear a new suit to Christmas dinner. Um, what? My mom would think it was a pretty big waste of money if one of my brothers bought a suit to wear to a casual family dinner (note that no one else is in a suit). I get, I guess, that it's supposed to be a sign that he's growing up (right?) but it still doesn't sit right with me. But I don't feel strongly enough to dislike it, unlike...
Commercial series I HATE: The stupid ones with the stupid women who are texting their friend on her date, and they all go to pieces because "He went to Jared!" First off, who texts their friends from a date? Especially a date with someone who knows you well enough to give you diamond earrings?
Secondly, are we really stuck in the 1950s where women are completely in thrall to a guy giving them jewelry? And wouldn't they say "Aw, he thought enough of our friend to give her a gift, rather than care what weird store he went to? I am not into brand names, but even I know that this is not a Tiffany blue box we are talking about here.
And finally who names their mall chain jewelry store after the now-thin guy from the Subway ads? Is this a new trend? Will there now be gas stations named Kevin, hardware stores named Scott, and countries named Chad? Whoops.
