Commercials that make me want to throw up.

Ooooooof this picture makes me queasy just THINKING about that disgusting Febreze commercial.  First of all lets discuss the fact that I have a bionic nose.  I swear I can smell Jean Nate two states over.  Why is it that I always sit next to the lady that bathed herself in some Avon perfume.  What the h?  Everyone knows that if your dog pees on the carpet and you spray Febreze it just smells like cinnamon spice dog pee, which in my humble opinion is worse than when you started. ( Yes I have a dog so I can have a professional opinion. )

Secondly, my mom would kill me dead for going with some strange person into an abandoned warehouse blindfolded.  Hello girls!  Apparently you don't watch the ID channel obsessively.  Anyone who watches 48 Hours Mystery re-runs over and over even though you know the husband did it, and then watch it again anyway, knows that you never go anywhere wearing a blindfold and then sniff a couch cushion.  I panic when this commercial comes on...I can't change the channel fast enough!

The other offenders are the kitty litter commercials.  Those of us who do not have kitties are pretty shocked to know that you are removing clumped up cat urine without throwing up and having to take a well deserved nap following a detox shower of Purell.

And did that Shitchky nut job just say "problems with a shedding p__s_y?"  (yes like a cat) Why is it that advertisers think a person screaming at us with a British or Australian accent will make us run to the phone to buy his jacked up on speed whatever-your-selling?   Whoever created the DVR is a freaking genius.  I never want to watch another commercial again.

  2. Seriously, I wonder what the 5minutes of footage AFTER the room reveal look like? You know, if it's people screaming in fear or just telling of the production crew.

  5. HAHAHA!!! I have been told my whole life that I have a bionic nose. It drives me nuts when my husband says "I can't smell anything" when I complain of a bad smell.

    Bad thing is I work in group homes....which are a world of various smells....hardly any of them good.

    Have you seen the British show "How Clean is Your House?" The one woman will run her fingers around the rim of the toilet and then smell them. GAG!! BARF!!!!! The Febreeze commercial is right up there when it comes to vomit inducing things.

  7. What a funny post...you are one clever writer. We watch Netflix almost exclusively so we miss all the stupid, disgusting, and mindless commercials. The only time we really see any ads at all is when we watch the morning news and the same ones are played ad nauseum.

  8. That British show How Clean is your House? is both hilarious and revolting! I think we have to remember that the Febreze commercial is probably still a stage set. It would be too hard to make someplace that disgusting, unless you went to a home on Hoarders. The commercials I hate are the ones with the British accents. I think all American commercials for American products should hire American actors with American accents. It just doesn't make any marketing sense to tout your brand with some stuffy Brit. Okay, Anthony for Oxyclean is okay because he might own part of the company. We ought to ban all prescription drug advertising. TV is not the place for it. A lot of doctors probably don't even watch TV. Ann

  9. I run away from this product as a result of their commercials. WHO is their target audience? I don't want to imagine. It makes me want to clean my clean house.
