I'm fairly sure some of these companies don't want us to use their services.

Yes, annoying.

I do kind of like some of the Progressive commercials with Flo.

Well, the emu is better than the actor that can't remember the lines.

I flash back to around 2000 when the emu scam cratered in Texas and we were out in Central TX hunting and 2 emus came walking down the rural county road after someone let them go and I had a .270 in within reach and was wondering, at 75 yards, how much of a feather explosion a 130 grain bullet would do to one of them. I passed and went back to my Jameson.

Car insurance commercials are the worst. How do companies possibly believe we will use/buy their services when they have stupid advertising? Doesn't that reflect on how stupid the company is? I am baffled.

There's a local car dealership that advertises their "one dime down" deal all the time. It's seriously on every radio commercial break. They have this obnoxious screechy whiny woman with a Jersey accent that makes me want to rip my radio out of the dash every time it comes on. Do they not realize that crap like this guarantees I will never give them my business? I'd walk everywhere before I bought a car from those people.

I hate to break it to you, but that "one dime down" commercial must be syndicated, as it plays everywhere. The only thing that changes is the name of the dealership. Highly annoying. But to a certain demographic, being able to get a new car, even if you're upside down on your current vehicle, for only a dime, must be very appealing. It's never for a Mercedes or Audi, it's always for a Kia.

Kia? I thought that was a campground.

I don't think there's been a decent car commercial since Joe Isuzu.

Earlier today on Fox News I saw the emu in sidecar version, and to make it much worse Brian Kilmeade had to cut off Rep Dan Crenshaw for the stupid commercial!

One of my rules is that I will do everything I can not to spend money with a company that puts out awful, annoying commercials. I will never be a Liberty Mutual customer.

I don't mind the Emu. Everyone recognizes it and other ads like it or not. Sounds like an effective ad campaign to me.

I love the emu, especially the one when it's in the sidecart eating bugs. It's ALL THEIR OTHER stupid ads I can't stand.

I think they are aiming at idiots (who don't understand concepts lime gap insurance, foe example).



No arsenal is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
