DisapproveAce has long made brick-worthy commercials and this one is a doozy! I just don't have televisions to sacrafice...
Was anyone wondering whatever happened to Law & Order's 'Sgt. Cragen'? Well, *I* was fooled for about 1.2 seconds, doncha know. I was positive he retired to the most boring neighborhood in  the city of Kankakee, Illinois and got a job at the paint counter at the local Ace Hardware store, got bored and became the old guy who would follow customers around, talking to them about paint, even if their backs were turned. Yea - for the 1.2 seconds, I was convinced he was that paint guy - the guy any of us would swat away with a newspaper.
If THAT wasn't enough, what's with this metaphor BS at the end?!!!

If they don't want us to eat paint, they shouldn't make it so delicious.

That's not Dan Florek. And yes,  the chorus singing the ad jingle, then sorta kinda singing a whole line of stuff afterward in the same general tune is horrid.

I have been wanting to start a thread about that "add on thing", but couldn't think of a succinct way to describe it.

I am truly sick of it already.

Talk about a pathetic attempt to be cute and connect with an audience.

Utterly stupid. The first time, it was almost amusing in an eye rolling kind of way. After that, it just smells of trying too hard.

But one has to admit though, that acrylic latex paint in pastel colors like pink, light yellow and light blue do look good enough to dip a spoon into and scarf down like a tub of ice cream or pour into a glass and gulp down like a milkshake.





Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Nailed the derpiness of it, though.

At least now I know how to describe the ads.... derpy.

In elementary school, you eat paste. It's what you do!  And eat boogers.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

We had a chain of hardware & garden stores called Aco in our area, then Ace bought them out... they always had great deals and no commercials. I miss it...

The staggered/jumbled/random singing of their original jingle is horrid
I am part of the target audience....and I hate it.

All of these damned Ace Hardware ads are now on my list to mute, mainly because of that stupid crap they sing at the end that just is idiotic.

♫ Ace is the place to hear stupid annoying jingles... that make you want to shove an ice pick into your ear or better yet throw it at these people who are singing this stupid-ass song and it goes right through their foreheads and their brains spill out onto the floor but don't eat the brains unless you're a zombie... derp-dee-derp... ♫

Ice picks are on aisle 4.   Tongue
 
Honestly, Ace does have more helpful hardware men and women than Lowes and Home Depot combined.
 
Yes, the Ace Hardware jingle is rather annoying, but it's nowhere near as bad as the "Safelite Repair.., Safelite Replace" jingle.   Personally, I will NEVER use Safelite's services simply because I can't stand the jingle.
 
What's more, they know it's horrid, but they keep using it anyway.

The jingle... oh Lord the jingle... next time I hear this Adagio by Samuel Barber will ring through my head and platoon flashbacks will appear. It gives me major aneurysms and AIDS, my ears are bleeding. F***ing c*** bags they're the Aces of masochism more than hardware

Umm, you just created the next ad for Geico. They always use a tag line like that. If I were you, I'd get one of those meat wagon chasing lawyers and patent that line and sue Geico for royalties.

Back to that retarded commercial, I'm waiting for the version where a rapper raps crap at the end like: Ace is the place for the helpful hardware man: yez yea yea, keepin it real in the fealy, that brown paint is going down when I go down on one of those prostitots from 5 Below, cause I'm goin down, yea yea yea...  You can see how much sense that makes. Wait, I better get one of those meat wagon barristers and sue Ace when they take my rap crap drivel in their next commercial. Yea, Yea, Yea!

I approve this message.
