Default Another Annoying Ad

The BMW with children opening a gift and screeching over the gift is way beyond annoying.

I don't watch commercials.
I put the TV on mute, go get a drink or do something for 2 minutes.

Yes, yes...We use the breaks to run and gets snacks, drinks, etc. We also channel search and mute the sound!

When my sister visits us, she hates it when we mute the volume, but we can't stand the noise, plus I'm sure they (the tv stations) UP the volume on commercials!

Wish there was something that could be done about that BMW ad. I guess the reaction they wanted has been accomplished: people are talking about it, annoying or otherwise.

The best response to obnoxious or offensive advertisements is to boycott the product until the company pulls and apologizes for the ad.

Unfortunately, BMW won't notice my boycott because I have never purchased any of their products anyway.

Hi all

That is an annoying commercial. Have you noticed that some of these ads are so far out that the connection to the product they are selling is hard to grasp?
