Enough Already? Or, Is Anyone Buying This?

My top two TV ad pet peeves so far in 2013:

1.
Aamco (“beep, beep,” for those of us old enough to remember ads from years past): The “would you trust just anyone” ad with the guy licking the computer keyboard (can I get a “yuck!”?). Does this ad really work? Do people run in to have their cars serviced at Aamco because of it? If I had a car, I’d run the other way.

2.
Xfinity: “The future of ahhsome” ad. First of all, it’s pronounced awesome, and second of all, it’s not. My TV regularly pixilates/scrambles, my “you still tiger” phone service cuts out and my Internet drops and/or hangs. And, the outsourced customer service? Sheesh…I contacted them recently about the aforementioned issues, went through a long list of fixes and was asked if the TV now looked better; when I replied that I couldn’t tell because the problems come and go, the agent’s response was, I’m glad I could help you today.” Wha’?

3.
Cove Haven Resorts: Does anyone really look at the ads for the champagne tub suites and think that the bubbly glass the couple’s sitting in — with its questionable-looking tannish liquid — seems appealing?

Wandering and wondering - taking it all in -- and increasingly shaking my head. Who are we and how did we get to this here? And, what, where and how next? Putting what I see and think out there in pictures and always looking for other ways, hence, this blog. This blog, like me, is a work in process and still doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up.
