I think it's incredibly funny to see people biting into foods on commercials and the sound that eminates from their mouths is akin to an entire forest-full of redwoods coming down.  I have never made a crunching noise that loud in my life.  Here's an example from good ol' Ellio's frozen pizza.  Beware of the deafening CRUNCHING sound.   I don't want anyone here ending up with permanent tinnitus!  LOL

Does anyone remember the classic Wesson Oil ad, with Florence Henderson and the fried chicken?
 
Best crunch ever.
 
I can't find it on youtube - sorry.
Let's try not to be boring, mkay?

I think it may be a union thing. Gotta keep those sound effects technichians employed.
 
It's like those old TV shows where a car is skidding around & spinning it's tires in the dirt, but you hear all this screaching & sqealing.
 
They're just trying to enhance our viewing experience, God bless em.

I always thought those commercials for Nestle's Crunch were strange. How can a candy bar make the EXACT SAME crunching sound every time you bite into it? Confused

There are tiny little computer chips embedded in the chocolate along with the crunchy things that create that sound via a pre-recorded mp3 file.
 
They also keep track of everything you eat & how often you go to the bathroom.
 
It's all for marketing purposes.

Enhanced sound effects in any ad bother me. There was one a while back where some dude is fixing a "thoughtful, gourmet" dinner, and everything is cut sloooow and with care and every slice and drip is LOUD and CRISP.

There is a new Pace picante sauce ad that is doing this.
It grates on my last nerve.
It doesn't make me think of the freshness, and it doesn't whet my appetite with anticipation and urgency.

Stupid.

Not exactly the same thing but I also hate ads that feature milk or juice or some liquid being slowly poured into a glass and it splashes up into a Hawaii 5-0 type of wave, complete with droplets. I suppose it's meant to be artistic but it makes me think of a big mess.

Another OreIda french fry ad...this time the b.s. involves the CRUNCH of the fry.  They snap a competitor's fry...no sound.  When they bend the OreIda fry, however, it makes an earth-shattering noise!  I'd actually be scared if my french fry made such a sound! ConfusedShocked

So, you have a chocolate bar making a crunching sound while being ingested, and then another "chocolate bar" making the same crunching sound being "released".
 
Honey, what's that crunchy sound in there?
That's my Nestles Crunch bar.
You're eating a Nestles Crunch bar in the bathroom???!!
No.

YES!!! That Pace ad gets on my nerves, too. The overdone closeups of the seeds and dirt; the loud breaking sound of the jalapeƱo pepper with the seeds flying; the way they show the guy slicing  the pepper with his knife and the WHOOSH sound it makes and the SHWOOP of the can being opened. That ad bothered so much but I couldn't put into words why. You just did it for me. Thank you.

Not only that but it is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo over frickin done!!!!!
 
It's almost like an unwritten rule that when you do a beverage commercial you HAVE TO show the stuff being poured into a glass in slow-mo so we can see it cascading all over creation.
 
WOW.
 
I'm so impressed I'm gonna rush out & buy a jug or a bottle or a carton of whatever piss you're selling AND a high speed camera so I can re-create that awesome, mind-blowing experience right in my very own home!!!!!!!
 
Oh, and another thing they do that I frickin hate is the old "slices of fruit flying thru the cascading water" bit. I wonder how much perfectly good water & fruit they waste by having a couple of people right off camera pouring & slinging take after take after take after take all day long. Because you know damn well they don't just do it a couple of times & call it a wrap. I imagine a good fifty or a hundred gallons of water goes down the drain & a couple of bushels of fruit go in the trash just so some fussy commercial director can get the "perfect shot".
 
Jerks.
 
Just show me a glass of whatever it is & knock off all artsy-shmartsy crapola.

Whether it's the crunch emulating from the bite of a Cheeto or from a Taco Bell ad just before the sound of the bell, this sound effect is entirely overplayed in all advertising.

Nestle's Crunch also comes to mind, they always have that exaggerated CRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNCCCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHHHHHH sound on their ads, but when I actually bite into their bars I only get a puny little "krick" followed by smaller crunches.

Nothing even remotely like the dramatic CRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNCCCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHH  sound in their ads. LOL

This thread reminds me of those commercials featuring computer keyboards.  No modern keyboard makes loud clicking sounds anymore; most of them are the silent key.  Every time I see that stupid Disney vacation commercial where the mom types, I get annoyed.
