    I hate that one too, I pretty much hate all the BK commercials and yes Muduh, he's singing possibilities. I've heard it enough to have the damn thing memorized.

    This made me curious, so when the commercial just came on I watched it. Twice, actually, to make sure I didn't miss it. In Chicago, they don't say anything, but there's a graphic in the corner of the screen at the end that says something about getting to your local Ford dealership.

    I know how you feel. They play it ALL THE TIME!!! Get this - My mother in law stays with us a couple nights a week & watches the Novelas on the Spanish channels & the commercial was also on that channel too! He was singing in English, but the rest was in Spanish.

    There's also another commercial I hate which I think is only on in So Cal. I think it's from the dept of Transportation & telling you to watch your kids. But here's what happens. It shows kids playing soccer and there's voiceover, which I don't pay too much attention too, but I think it says something about how the little girl (maybe 10 ish) is going to die today. Then the soccer ball goes in the street between the cars parked & of course she runs after it & here comes a car to hit her. They cut right before it does, but it is so close they may as well show it. It's so disturbing to me & they show it when kids could be watching. At the beginning of it, it says at the bottom how The content may not be suitable for young adults. But it's OK for toddlers?!?!?!?

    They actually had a family of Bick pickle finger-puppets. I have their pet dog Pickle Poochie too! (sorry no photo). There was a mom and a dad and a brother as well. They came free attached to the little Crunch-em's Dill jars. I think the promotion is over now though Sorry.

    And would you BELIEVE they didn't have a pickle KITTY? WTF?!! (well, you know why of course. Kitties don't want to be dill pickles.....they're too sweet! )

    There is this commercial about an alcoholic beverage at a nightclub where all they're doing is shaking their hips one way. It's annoying yet funny to me.

    I did the same thing. Ours had a graphic that said "Tri-State Ford"

    I just saw a commercial last night telling kids about the dangers of steroid use. Uh, where were these PSA's for the last 20 years?!

    This commercial isn't inappropriate, just irritating as heck. I don't understand what message they are trying to send.

    It's for Minute Maid 5-Alive fruit drink. It cuts from short clips of pieces of a face playing in a band, to drunken pirates drinking from tea cups, to flatware dancing on a picnic table to the heads of men driving around in little cars that crash into each other. All with irritating music changes. The tag line is something about stay alive, with 5 alive. Just dumb IMO. I like the juice, not the commercial.

    I agree. That's one of those commercials that has me wondering what the marketing folks have been sniffing. How are ads like that supposed to convince people to buy a product?

    Have any of you seen the sprite ads running in the movie theaters before the movie? They are so weird I feel like I'm in a really bad copy of a Pink Floyd movie.
