Smart Off? More like 'Jerk Off'!

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Oh, no, no, no!!!! Not the game-show cliche AGAIN! F~%K

I swear that: 1) ad writers get fired for shunning fads and stupidity, and 2) all advertising agencies have Wheel of Fortune-style wheels with all the formulae on them, and spin it to pick the cliche(s) to put in the ad. Original thinking be damned!

It only needs to have a little kid as a contestant (winning of course) along with some dancing, off-key singing, and... you get the idea.

Ooh, I forgot: Start it with ye olde reliable mock news broadcast that cuts over to the game show.
I keep encountering 3rd graders who sound smarter than most ad writers.

Talking about game shows, I'm pissed! Yesterday I was watching Jeopardy! It was at the end of the show where they revealed the final clue and instead of going to the Think Music. It cuts to commercials! Then after that, it went to the beginning of Wheel Of Fortune! WTF WTNH? What gives? I never got the final answer! Bastards! Somebody f**ked up! Big-time!

BTW I'm noticing a pattern here. First award shows, now game shows, what's next, cop dramas?

I hate this one too but of course what makes it the worst is that stupid buzzer that he's constantly pressing. Even if I'm not in the room, I can hear it and it's an instant annoyance.

I knew they would spoof a game show - another 'daytime' program. Last year it was 'Look! Famous People' and a while back it was Maury. What's next - Flo vs. Jamie on Judge Judy? AngryAngry

I know it makes me yearn for the sounds of Family Feud from the 70s.

I've seen this at least three times this week alone and I'm definitely sick of it! I change the channel when  the bimbo game show host appears on my TV. Angry

I saw game show Gary on again. Who honestly greed lighted this nonsense? Commercials have to rely on annoying sounds and people to get their point across...wait...what IS the point of this commercial? =\

Saw it twice yesterday...exactly why is this nonsense still on the air?! It has nothing to do with car insurance and has no point. Just another thing to make me change channels. Fk you Progressive!! AngryAngry
BTW I still can't believe that's Mark DeCarlo hosting this 'commercial' - he sure has fallen since the early '90s 'Studs' days...
