I absolutely HATE this commercial. It just came on, and once again I didn't get to the mute in time. Whoever came up with this ought to be fired, and everyone in the world should boycott Justfab. I hope they go out of business. I didn't think commercials could get any worse than all the annoying car inurance ones, but this one surpassed them all. It actually makes me feel violent.

Isn't JustFab the same site that previously featured women in an office browsing their site and letting out orgasmic and other sexual sounding moans over the shoes/prices?

I would not do that over shoes. Pocket watches maybe. Pianos, perhaps.

This one?


I guess next time, since it fits their theme of stereotypical women so much, they could make a commercial where the woman is making a sammich for her man in the kitchen while she finds out about justfab.com.

When I find that oh-so-perfect pair of shoes at Target, my expression remains blank, and I silently think, "Good.  Now I can get outta here".
 
Come to think of it, that applies to any purchase.  I can't imagine why anyone would scream or have any emotional reaction, for that matter, over a purchase.

I did it once....over a LEGO set.
 
But in my defense, this was a store exclusive that was released over a year prior, with a limited print piece....and it was 80% off.
 
I totally was within my rights.

Are you a fellow pocket watch lover?

I have a few myself, including my grandfather's old Knickerbockerrailroad watch.

I had a cheap one from the Sears catalogue or somewhere when I was a kid.

Bugged my mom until she got it for me.

Probably only cost a few bucks.

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

Having browsed thru Target's shoe dept. before, I cannot imagine finding an "oh-so-perfect" pair of them there.

^Dunno, I've gotten some really great shoes from the likes of Target and Wal-Mart. Last me years and years. Typically buy them clearance so I'm getting $60+ pairs for $15 or less.

I usually get my shoes at Target - $25 tops.   I'd never spend much more than that, let alone $200, on a pair of f**king shoes.

Come to think of it, I am about due to buy a new pair. My current shoes' soles (about 2 years old now) are wearing pretty thin.

I buy Dr. Scholls tennis (athletic) shoes at Wal-mart.  Cheap, about 30 bucks. I always have a nasty pair thats been wet, grass stained. And a better pair for going out to church and funerals.
Thats was a joke. I have dress shoes, and a suit that probably does not fit anymore.

"Oh-so-perfect" means "These'll do; they fit and they're under $20".

These women belong in a mental hospital.

What the hell is this obsession with shoes?

I have three pairs of shoes. Regular sneakers, steel-toe sh*t-kicker work boots, and some dress boots for when I have a job interview or a funeral to go to.

Whoever thought this ad was a good idea is a f**king straight-up idiot. What is this misconception that loud, grating, incredibly obnoxious noises in a repetitive commercial will excite people about whatever you're trying to sell?

I think advertisers could really make some money if they made a commercial where somebody just demolishes all of these tactics and goes: "No nonsense. This is what I'm selling. No animated characters, no screaming, no trendy humor, no hipsters, no singing, no stupid slogan, no gimmicks. This is what I'm selling and here's why you should invest in it."

Zack, there was a commercial with the woman who played Ethel on I love Lucy doing a commercial for a product, and she basically said, "I think(product) name works great."(or something along those lines).  No screaming in this commercial, and I'll bet she got the point across without being absurd.

I don't scream over ANY merchandise. I recently found a limited edition and no longer readily available knife I wanted at the local pawn shop. I gave them the $20 and that was that. I've found extremely rare, out of print CDs by obscure bands I listen to, again, I placed my order and that was that.

The male equivalent might be screaming over football on TV.  Guys don't usually do this watching a game alone at home.  But when it's a group event, the screams can be heard a block away.

I dunno.

I'm not sure there even exists a male comparison to women screaming over shoes.

With football (& sports in general) nowadays, women are almost as big a fan base as men are & hence, are involved in the screaming for their team as well.

I think a comparison, if it existed, which I don't think it does, would be men screaming over some object(s) of desire, like a lot full of nice cars, or pickup trucks, or a cache of guns, or a fridge full of beer or any other thing that might be considered a traditional object of guys' love & adoration.

A room full of naked women. (Can you imagine what the reaction would be to a guy jumping up & down squealing upon encountering that???)

I think the male equivalent to women screaming over shoes, is the slightly raised volume exclamation of the word "AWESOME!!!!!"

Possibly accompanied by one of these:

Possibly also, with the word "dude" or it's plural form "dudes" occasionally added on if the guy is accompanied by other males.

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

Nice way of trying to get around the equalization rules for commercials, talk in a whisper and have these slunts scream at the top of their lungs.

Yeah, this commercial might meet the volume rules, but screaming is still screaming.  It's like hearing a gunshot or car crash down the block in the middle of the night.  It may not be that loud, but it's still jarring.

Is that a typo or a combination of the 2 words? My guess is the latter LOL

I am not afraid to say this, despite the fact I have a girlfriend, but what the f**k is the big deal, they're just f**king shoes! My girlfriend saw this commercial with me last night while watching something (I forget what it is. Cry) and she nearly flipped out when she saw this commercial. All she could say is, "Why would any woman go gaga over a damn shoe?! I only have ten pairs of shoes in my closet." I said, "Only 10?!" She replied, "It could be worse, I could have over a thousand." I laughed and admitted, "Yeah, or you could be a shoe freak like these b****es in these motherf**king commercials.", and we both laughed and agreed that anyone who supports these ignoramuses or acts like them is a very shallow person, and needs to learn that clothes aren't everything and it's personality that makes the person, not the other way around. 
All it takes is one bad commercial, and you're off to CIH to share your distaste for the offending advertisement.
