The Commercial That Refuses To Die...


I know it's lame to be the fucker who complains about commercials. I have not yet sprung for a DVR, so it's my own fault. Many of you know I watch "Jeopardy" regularly Monday thru Friday (and, if I'm home, Saturday) at 7:30 P.M. I don't know how regional this sort of shit is, but where I live this fucking commercial (above) has been playing AT LEAST once during "Jeopardy" repeatedly for the last six months - maybe longer. Whereas even the most clever commercials eventually fade from view within a few months, this god-awful cell phone ad continues to haunt me with its complete lack of any discernible humor or value whatsoever. It needs to be taken out behind the barn and put out of its unfunny misery.

All of the "wizard" ads are idiotic, I'm amazed that All-Tell has stuck with this campaign for so long.

I have despised this commercial for MONTHS.

ALLTEL NEEDS TO GET A NEW AD AGENCY. PLEASE, FOR THE GOOD OF ALL HUMANKIND, RETHINK THIS MARKETING STRATEGY.

I've seen the 7-8 versions with these characters many times but never saw this one - with the wizard family, The fisrt 5 seconds of this one is GREAT!. Band Camp? Come on.

It would be much better if the dog spent the entire commercial just tearing them apart, all of them, then just put the logo up at the end. That would have been funnier than this.

I have the same problem with The Girls Gone Wild commercial. They show the same one during The Colbert Report at least 3 times in a half hour. They never change that commercial, they ran the same one for like 5 years! We need fresh, hot, naked, coed action every once in a while, jeeeez.

Geez, Guy! Don't you have a remote? I just zip over to The History Channel during the commercials. Back and forth, back and forth. I've been doing it for so long, my timing's almost perfect.

The "writer" of those ads needs to be pooped on and then have a wizard's hat shoved up his ass!
Maybe that's a little too harsh..nahh!
