    Mine in the one where the little tyke asks Santa on the computer no less,for a Lexus.
    Then the family runs out of their Mc Mansion on Christmas morn to find one with a big bow on it.
    Makes me wanna go back to when a kid was thrilled with a train set or something , in a commercial.

    I'm not sure if it is classified as a Christmas ad, but the one where the cute teen aged quads sit on the sofa playing with their phones and texting "I love you a lot" and giggling. It was cute the first 400 times I saw it but now I just sit there and think "Yeah, shut the fuck up."

    Most current commercials, seasonal or not, are not worth the mental energy to pay attention! (And this comes from a former ad agency person.)

    A lot of The Clapper :clap: commercials on the local channels lately!
    And Chia Pet...

    Great stocking stuffers? Or gag gifts? I'm not sure...

    Now that you mention it, I don't think I've heard a single Chia Pet commercial once this year!



    Gag gift fer-shure. Or (LOL) a Secret Santa gift when you draw the name of the Office Jerk! :)

    Hmmmm ... now that I think of it, the annual deluge of drek from Ronco, K-tel, and Popeil has really dried up over the past 10 years or so.

    There is one that actually makes me very sad......

    A teenage girl has texted something about entereing the gates of hell, aka grandma's, where there is no wifi or cable. Grampa sees this and is very sad.

    Next thing you see is the cable company out front and Grandma and Grampa now have cable, wifi, and big ass flat screen on the wall by the tree.

    Teenage girl and family show up for Christmas, she is all gloomy until the teevee and wifi are revealed.

    Even though it is just a commercial........it makes me sad :thumbsdown:

    AT&T. Dude is thrilled he just got a hell of a deal on all kinds of gadgets and services. Approaches door but can't resist one more glimpse at Lily's boobs. Slams into door. Lily looks on in silent gratification.

    THE office jerk? I'm jealous DMR, we have two.

    I still keep thinking they should rearrange the cubes so they sit next to one another.

    Then again, for anyone in close proximity, that might be like having front row seats in hockey, without the safety glass :)

    On Christmas commercials, none have really annoyed me this year (yet), but I LOVE the one with the guy that looks like Frankenstein with Christmas bulbs in his neck. He starts singing a Christmas carol, the town people stare at him, and you expect pitch forks. Instead, everyone joins him in singing, one by one. I love that one!

    All TV commercials are muted..........no sound........until my 5 yr old commands the remote control.
    Then..........EVERY single TV commercial is rewound and watched again !
    Pure torture for me !.........
    Karma is a bitch !.....and so are ALL TV ads !

    Have I missed them or is Bud not running any Clydesdale commercials this year? I've seen Wells Fargo with the snowmen holding carrots for the horses,but no Bud commercials which I kind of like., the commercials,not that god awful brainwaster.

    Also I can't remember seeing any Coca Cola ads with the polar bears or the singing...

    When she says "Enjoy your new phone!", he responds with "You too", then gets that 'what did I just say. I'm so stupid! ' look on his face. He's trying to get out of the store without looking like more of a goob. Unfortunately 'just a few more feet' before salvation is ruined by plowing into a glass door. It's tough being young.
