Threads like this are why DVRs were invented.

And the fact that those ads create lines that start at 1:30AM, which creates news content for morning TV shows with local and national camera crews showing up at midnight to set up cameras to interview those who have lined up in tents outside a store that is having a sale at 4 A fucking M in the morning.

If I was a terrorist...

There should be a cable channel that runs nothing but commercials for products that relieve unpleasant personal hygiene/health issues, and all commercials for those products should be shown nowhere but on that channel.

Most annoying commercials #1: the male enhancement product commercial with the sweaty dancing woman in a red tube top and the geeky-looking moron leering at her from the bar.

Most annoying commercial #2: the series of ads for the Channel 15 morning show that has the cast talking about how they stir their coffee or do their hair or get to work or whatever other inane drivel that makes me completely uninterested in their show.
