The Ambien ad grates me 'cuz it really makes you feel bad for not being able to sleep. "Get back into the rhythm of life." It's like politely chiding you for going without sleeping pills.
Maybe if I take Ambien I'll need LifeAlert? I can get pretty loopy on sleepy pills.
The craftmatic adjustable beds ad pisses me off. The one where they keep saying, "call now to get your free bed!" Then they show clip after clip of elderly people who are overjoyed that they got a free bed. It is a sick and slick trick to get the befuddled old ladies to part with their money. Disgusting.
I feel like taking a shower after seeing that.
