BountyBrand/YouTube

There's something about those Bounty commercials that really irk me. I cringe when I see all those fluids all over the counters... or floors, for that matter. There's no way in hell that I'd be smiling if my child spilled a wave of sticky whatever all over my clean counters! (Maybe this is why I don't want to have children, even if I think they're really cool––I like to have things in their place.)

But I'm not so irked that I don't purchase Bounty paper towels when I see them and need them, you know?

After Redditor bangthedrum1980 asked the online community, "What's a commercial that is so bad that you avoid the product because of it?" people told us how they really feel about some products.


"Any commercial that says..."

Any commercial that says "Hey Google" or "Hey Siri" to activate my voice assistant is dead to me.

"No, I will not..."

No, I will not ask my doctor if this medication is right for me, and how do you expect me to report a side effect of death to my doctor?

"Stop triggering my dogs..."

Anything with doorbells. Stop triggering my dogs, dammit. NO ONE HAS VISITED FOR THE LAST 8 MONTHS, SPARKY, AND THEY AIN'T STARTIN' NOW.

"There are more reasons..."

Betterhelp

Their ad is someone on the brink of a panic attack receiving a bunch of messages relating to how they aren't fun to be around anymore. The music is anxiety inducing. At the end they receive a message from Betterhelp asking if they are ready to start their session.

I get what they were trying to do, but the ad induces a feeling of anxiety in me until it lets me press skip.

There are more reasons I won't seek out this company, but the ad was just awful.

"I stopped eating KFC..."

I stopped eating KFC because in Australia they're running a campaign where in each commercial there's an awkward moment followed by the line "Uh... did someone say KFC??" and then the chorus from the song "I Don't Care" by Icona Pop plays while everyone eats chicken together and forgets the awkward moment earlier. Every second f****** YouTube ad is that dumb ass f****** song, I wish they f****** would crash their car into a god damned bridge.

No. Nobody said KFC. F*** your chicken strips.

"On YouTube..."

Any commercial that comes up more than once in an hour. On YouTube, I get so may ads (around 3 ads per video) for Google Fi that I actually cancelled the service, and similar for a lot more.

"It can help."

"Do you suffer from headaches? Talk to your Doctor today about this pharmaceutical drug! It can help. Side effects may include: headaches, migraines, stomach cramps, vision loss, impaired speech, and death. Call your Doctor immediately if you start to have swelling in your throat, mouth, lungs, butthole, arms, joints, or eyes. You may be at higher risk of these side effects if you have diabetes, are on any type of diet, drink water, are human, or urinate on a regular basis."

"They're basically..."

There's this commercial my boyfriend and I keep laughing at. They're basically trying to make money off people terrified of COVID (it is scary dont get me wrong). But they're basically just gloves with grips on them but they call them hand protectors and go off about how they protect you from all germs. They're gloves. That's all.

"There was one a few months ago..."

Those "truth" anti-smoking ads. There was one a few months ago where they were trying to sideways imply that vaping would give you covid-19. I don't even smoke but I want to every time those ads come on just to spite the stupidity.

DECtape

"I don't care..."

F****** Geico. I don't care if they were substantially cheaper than all other insurance companies (they're not). Every one of their advertisements are an insult to the concept of comedy. Their entire ad department should be banned for life from the industry.

Remember way back when the internet wasn't a flaming dumpster fire?

Yeah, us either.

The internet has always been a mess, but it's also always been beautiful.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!
