Commercials are responsible for bringing us into a world where someone has a need, and that need is magically fulfilled. Typically, a talking mop or anthropomorphic animal plays Sherpa, leading them to consumer satisfaction. Sometimes. It's those other times we have to tell ourselves, "This is awful and I refuse."


Reddit user, u/golde62, wanted to know which ads set you off when they asked:

What commercial did you dislike so much that you now avoid the product?

Let's Manipulate Those Heartstrings

Lens Crafters.

They ran this sappy commercial with this little kid in glasses, toying with emotions by saying they helped him when he had congenital myopia, like it was some terrible disease.

It just means he was born nearsighted.

F-ck you, Lens Crafters.

When They Invade Your Music

Those f-cking "Tide and stains just don't go together" commercials on Pandora.

If I have to listen to

one more time, I swear to God, I'm gonna lose it. I've switched to the powder detergent because of it.

*Not* donating my old sedan to 1-877-KARS-4-KIDS was an act of sweet, sweet vengeance.

TikTok.

Never have I hated something so much that I know so little about

Automated-Waffles

Pure Irrationality

Anything that mentions "Winning a J.D. Power Award"

As far as I can tell the award is purely based on opinion and is f-cking useless involving anything else.

Mainly car companies talk about this award

I don't care if a bunch of people like the product is it actually good?

The second I hear that award mentioned I stay the f-ck away because that award is not worth bragging about

We Promise They're Not Actors. Pinky Swear.

Those Chevy "Real People" commercials are really annoying.

This just feels like a reliable car.

For Someone So Friendly, He Sure Is Hateable

The General (insurance).

"For the best low rates you can get online, go to the general and save some time." F-ck that company.

Looking At You, Most Coffee Commercials...

Anything that uses an alarm clock noise.

Like, who thinks it's a good idea to shove the unanimous sound of dread every human being knows into some commercial about soap? I just associate that feeling with those products now.

Skittles Just Takes It Too Far

That Skittles pox commercial that's been around forever.

Just f-cking stop it Skittles, I don't want to taste the rainbow that's growing on someone's skin.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

"What would you do if your long term SO suddenly wants to have sex with other people?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:

"For people who grew up with little money, what always felt like a luxury?"
