The one where he tells "The story of Dragon" is ridiculously long. It should simply say something like: Are you an old fart who can't type? This product is for you".

I loathe these commercials. Everyone is so annoying! From the little kid who can't "put it together" when he puts pencil to paper, to jennythewriterconsultantmother, to the woman who writes many assessments every week (since when does 3 or 4 equal many?). DIE DRAGON DIE.

This is a great post! I don’t find the ‘host’ or the product the annoying part of the commercial; it is the testimonials that make it unbearable! I don’t think they could have selected a group of four bigger idiots than those giving testimonials on this commercial!

The one that really upsets me is the hillbilly grandmother who bought the software and then though it a good idea to buy for her remedial grandson who claims he can’t write on paper. Great idea grandma – the kid has a problem writing or getting his thoughts to paper (so he mumbles) so go buy him a product that will never allow him to learn how to write! Typical behavior of sheep looking for the easy way out instead of learning how to do something right.

I also agree with those complaining about the so called professor writing a novel! My 8 year old niece writes better than her!

The other two testimonials are no bargains either. The other so called writer complaining about ‘wearing so many hats’ as a mother and writer stressing how this product has improved her life. Lastly, the crime scene inventory guy with the overstressed Texas accent – give me a break!

If there was a 10% chance I’d purchase this product it is now at 0% as “Drag-on” shot themselves in the foot showing me what kind of morons are customers of their product.

I hate seeing this commercial to for Dragon. They really don't have to go through all those examples. They could show two examples and end the commercial but we have to deal with the dumb grandmother and her illiterate grandson, a screechy valley girl mother, the guy who does crime scenes, and a dumbass assessment writer. The commercial just seems to just go on and on and you want it to stop. 

All those examples are not necessary for this product. The illiterate child and assessment writer irks me as stated before the lazy ass grandmother doesn't bother to get the child tutoring or help for his writing problem and going to have him rely on Dragon. When he applies for a job online or in person Dragon isn't going to help him fill in the blanks. The assessment writer just annoys me for some reason.

I don't understand why they can't just use examples of regular people using the product. A therapist or doctor documenting a meeting with a client/patient. A writer actually working on a project rather than doing a Facebook post like Jennythewriterconsultantmother. Weldon's example wouldn't have been far off the mark if only they hadn't used him as an 'accent' example. Practicality goes a long way, adholes. Try it sometime.

This commercial is pretty awful. It comes on a few channels that I watch and is one of the reasons why I can't leave the TV unguarded while letting the commercials play out. This thing comes on I get up make a sandwich, grab a drink come back in sit down to eat and it's still on. I finish the sandwich, toss the empty can, get up to go to the bathroom and wash my hands...come back, it's still on.

And when's the last time you heard a ten-year old use the phrase "put pencil to paper"?  So fake!
