I just can't stand the before and after commercials for cleaning products. They will have a group of baking pans in a specific position and then they will be in the same positions clean. Same for teeth. A swipe from the magic will instantly change those dull teeth white. It would be very easy to make clean cooking pans or teeth dull and dirty in photoshop or another image editing program. Who do they think they are fooling?

The new Jetta commercials are starting to annoy a bit. I usually like most of their ad campaigns but this jettareport thing to sell a that nasty 5th genertation bodystyle...sad

VW has a cool campaign on spanish language channels for the GTI centered around speedy gonzales, truly slick. BTW, best ever speedy gonzales episode...Mexacali Schmoes, beause slowpoke Rodriguez carries a gun.

Dubbed commercials for schampoo, toothpaste and cleaning products. Just absolutely hate them.

If they can't make a commercial for our market, then they should run it unchanged. There is nothing that destroys film like bad dubbing. And these commercials were never any good even in original.

In fact, the entire push-name-of-product-on-customer commercial scene could just die out. Most Swedish made commercials are funny, well thought out and even, in at least one case, something you WANT to see, because they've turned it into a parody on the soap opera theme, and you just want to see what intrigue they can introduce in the store next time. When you then see one of those push-name-of-product-on-customer commercials, the main association with the product is: unprofessional.
