The Parts of Commercials I Dislike

I'm going to put up a short list of what specifically is said in certain commercials to make me dislike them immensely (and my comments about them). Feel free to add yours to the comments.

1. "This product has been proven to help you quit smoking." Um, no. I've never taken this product (nor smoked), so it's not been proven to help me with anything.

2. "I don't want to be another statistic." You'll be a statistic either way, you just don't want to be on the bad side of the statistics.

3. "We've got the lowest prices. Guaranteed." The commercials I see with this the most often are stores that I know have some of the highest prices. It's ridiculous.

4. I don't have a number 4, because numbers one through three bug me too much to think of any other lines from commercials that bug me.

That's all for now.


P.S.: Tulsa, at 12:30 a.m. on a Saturday, has a show about a tree service. I never knew that before. Tonight's show is from after our recent ice storm. Apparently Tulsa has 90 days from the storm to clear up all the debris, which might explain why my power is on, but my neighborhood still has lots of branches.
