Default annoying commercial !

Have you ever seen a commercial that annoys the heck out of you? Well for me itís the new Carnival commercial with the man doing some ridicules dance and a even more ridicules facial expression. I do think the duaghters reaction is funny.
They seem to play it a a dozen times a day. Maybe Iím watching too much T.V.

I know It's just one of those silly things. My D/H gets a kick out of my reaction to it.

I'm with you on that one, while I initially liked it, they run it over and over again, then it got old....A good thing only last so long IMHO.

Remember every time you turned on the tv in your cabin you'd hear Kathie Lee singing? All I can say is good thing the tv's are fastened well or they would have been overboard

As the father of an 11 year old, I love this commercial. I hated the big balls and the pinata.

Yes, I agree. If I didn't know about cruising, I wouldn't know that commerical was all about cruising. Why don't they just show the different ships / people having fun, (or buffeting), on a cruise instead of that stupid commerical.

Actually, once you've cruised, the minute you see the commercial, you know its a cruiseline commercial, no doubt about it!
