I'm getting so sick and tired of that stupid Vehix ad where all of the people in it are totally blown away that you can watch videos and pictures of cars. I hate these ads primarily because they're all about making a whole lot noise over nothing. I've visited Vehix a few times, and honestly, the site is a dinosaur from Web 1.0. It doesn't even work that well. Just a bunch of listings from dealers with NO PRICES. 99% say " Call for a quote". Additionally, watching videos of cars might have been cool in 1999, but not now. Big whoopty-do! Yet the people in these ads are totally AMAZED that they can watch spinning cars and 360 videos of interior. In particular, the woman with the Dick Tracey hat at the beginning repeatedly over-emphasizes that " You're practically driving IN THE CAR!" Get over it! There's nothing remarkable about the site or any of the content.

 Hell- even the colors in the ad are 1990's-riffic. Lime green, bright orange, Swedish furniture, etc etc. You wonder why I notice all that detail? Because they play this ad 100 freakin' times a night. I assume they must make loads of money because they have all that ad space. I am getting so sick of the ad that I actually mute it and go pee or something.

That ugly woman goes piss me off.  She is a mix between a school librarian and real estate agent.

The woman with the hat looks alright to me. But the woman with the short hair sitting on the couch looks like some sort of soccer mom type, complete with an annoying "New Joisy" accent. Funny since I believe the company is located in North Carolina.

I want to close the hatch on that stupid hat wearing sh*t lady and her stupid shopping bags.

I've seen these sh*theads so many times I can predict when it's about to appear on my TV.

Every single one of the dumbsh*ts in the commercial keeps flailing their hands wildly.  The only scene where it's not evident is the Mexican dude, because it's a super close up shot.

That sh*thead thinks she's Mickey Spillane with that hat.

There's a new vehix commercial out now.  All the dumbass participants are waving their hands around.

Hopefully this will shut the door on that stupid hat wearing trunk sitting dumbsh*t.

But I doubt it.

Comcrap brought back that asswipe bike riding 'money' and the fireworks farmer idiot in love with the buck at the beach crap.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting about Vehix. I was going to search the archives to see if anything had been written and came across this.
 
I haven't seen the one where they're waving their hands, but there is a new one and the people sound even dumber than the first, with the exception of the woman in the goofy hat in the hatchback. ("You're practically *driving* in the car!" Shaddup! No you're not practically driving in the car. You're sitting at a computer taking a video test drive. Stupid skank looking like an Annie Hall wannabe...)
 
I digress. Boy, that woman irritates me. This new one has one saying, "I don't know what a hybrid is" and another, "Did you know there's a semiautomatic transmission?" And then there's a few more stupid people, but by then, I've paused TiVo, waiting for a few minutes to pass so I can fast forward through this dreck.
 
To the first person, seriously? With all the benefits of hybrid cars (so what if the technology is still too new for me to afford one) you must be the only boob on the planet who is unfamiliar with the concept. And to the second, I'm the farthest thing from a grease monkey, but even I know what a semiautomatic transmission is.
 
To ad execs, stop making us girls look moronic in car commercials! Angry
