Not too much creativity in these commercials.

Now!  I have to go find Caroln's post!   (frantic running)

After looking at Dejoh's video, I have to wonder how we have managed to keep our sanity while being bombarded with all that crap for so long.  I started to have an anxiety attack just watching the video for a minute.   I'm watching television less and less...it's the only way to keep myself from throwing the remote through the TV.

Before you throw it..........    Think about it and just lay it down.  Now isn't that better?

Is there another source for the video?

The one that was posted is now unavailable because the associated YT account has been terminated.

I hope Dejoh can find that again.  It was a great mash of all the depressing piano mania.

It seems that particular video has vanished.  Its not even in my history of U-Tube videos.
It must of touched on a nerve.

I have not turned the TV on in nearly 2 weeks. Not for news, not for reruns, not for anything.
One main reason is these virtue signaling commercials. ENOUGH!!!!!!

These will all go down as the WORST commercials of 2020 - perhaps of the whole fkn decade! And that's if we get y'know, a summer where all 50 states have reopened, some tourism comes trickling back, sports return, our 'watering holes' return to a profit, Disney/Universal can make a profit from reopening theme parks, etc. AngryAngryAngry

Never thought I'd ever see the day where my television set started to have dust forming on it. I miss when I could watch the idiot box and see commercials that didn't have a reference to 'in this challenging times' or 'we're in this together'. Three months seems like 5 years.

I've finally located it after doing some research.  This video covers all the BS commercials being played non-stop.

Wow. Listening to that reminds me of walking into a funeral home.
That's all I have to say about that.

Same here. Most funeral homes use somber piano music in their commercials and during visitations/services.

In these uncertain difficult times, now more than ever, we who are staying farther apart can all still come together - not just America, but the whole world - like we have for over 100 years, to listen to somber piano music and buy stuff, so people & their families who have always been there for us but don't actually give a damn about us can have more of our money. 

We will get through this. Here's some insurance.

Not just vehicle insurance but all the new vehicles that will need it. 30% unemployment! Who will be buying either one? Of course. The usual idiots who are very bad at math. The same ones who buy lottery tickets to rescue them from debt!
