Some examples..: 

YOU GOT THIS !
ITS A WIN WIN ! ( or with Kraft the ENYA WIN WIN ! )
ITS A GAME CHANGER !
NO BRAINER !
NO WORRIES !

( ADD NAUSEATING CLICHE HERE ) I want to know who decided that annoying cliches HAVE to be forced down our throats and every ad agency HAS to go that route !


Man, I HATE the "you got this"! HATE IT. It sounds like they are talking to little children who just need some encouragement to do whatever it is they are trying to get you to do (buy). Course, I guess millennials ARE kind of like little children. They get their feelings hurt easily, throw a tantrum when they don't get their way, have a hard time getting self motivated to do what needs to be done and feel entitled to everything without having to work for it.

And game changer!!!! What the hell does that even mean? NOTHING!!! Just a buzz word that makes the viewer think they are saying something when they are really saying nothing!

I agree 100%!! Couldn't have said it better myself!
