Default Advertising you hate to be subjected to...

What is the top 5 situations that most pisses you off.

5. Food Tray tops on airplanes.

4. whiney airline attendants pitching airline credit cards over the intercom to you while you are strapped in at 30,000 feet.

3. product adds incorporated into a movie

2. Hotel TV menus that always cycle back to the hotel add page when you turn off than on the TV and make it hard to get to regular free TV programing.

1. After paying 14 dollars for a movie ticket to be subjected to 10 of 15 minutes of very loud and annoying commercials. (Coming late does not solve the problem because you get a ****ty seat.)

Adds the scroll in the bottom of the screen during the middle of my television program. They're getting bigger and more annoying. I especially hate when the actor or actress is dancing or doing something obnoxious so you notice them. Screw that.

Almost all the theaters here now have reserved seating. Greatest thing since sliced bread.

Get used to it, and get used to in-show advertising.

It's my business, so while I find it just as annoying... I absolutely understand it and honestly have sat in meetings with our creatives/vice-presidents and suggested that we get more aggressive with it.

Like any other business, TV is just that. Programs are just filler between ads.
We serve our advertisers by using our people. It's a simple construct, but people often mistake it for some sort of public service because so much of it is free or low-cost.

Free television delivers an awful lot of entertainment at no cost. (Yes, there are bad shows but also many good ones.) Even pay-TV is a great deal from a price-point perspective.

Take your family to see one movie, and you'll drop $50.. easily. For less than that, you can have 100 channels of programming for a MONTH.

The issue here is Tivo, plain and simple. We all love it. We all love skipping over commercials. But, of course... the networks don't love it so much. We've taken a hit on the whole thing and have to find ways to place advertising to retain our clients.

Look at NFL games. Advertising is plastered all over the screen, all over the stadium... everywhere. Just like network TV... it's a business. The advent of Tivo will only force these businesses to seek out additional ways to support their model.

We'll just pay for netflix and stop watching. We stopped watching 24 and will just do the DVD thing. no advertisements before or during the shows.

I agree. I still don't know what that waiter is doing at the end of the commercial with the dinner party. Something lights on fire and he starts waving his hand around. Every one of them is annoying.

This is my industry as well and its one thats hemmoraging money and they STILL havent figured out how to handle things like tivo and the internet. I do find it curious that people b**** about television ads like its their god given right (as you intimated as well) to watch TV and get pissed off when networks attempt to get creative with advertising. They have to make money and promote their shows somehow!!! trust me, i cannot stand big business/corporate america, but they arent trying to pull one over on us with this one.

Do the three second lower third ads REALLY annoy you that much? C'mon its not THAT big of a deal.

Also the beer commercial. Every beer commercial involves some neanderthal who must think of a new creative way to dupe his woman so he can watch sports. I wanna shoot myself each time i see one.

Well I understand your assessment, from an advertiser's assessment, I would imagine they would call this a success. Afterall, you did remember the commercial.

Speaking of airlines and movie theaters, they have both have broadcasting that is nothing more than cleverly designed advertising. The "20" before the movie starts - all ads. The "after the movie but we are still in the air" is a lot of ads, too. Its insidious.

The ads I hate are those stupid Pizza Hut hidden camera ads. They bring out a pan of crap that looks like cheap dog food, and show people near orgasm over it.

If a waiter brought me out Kraft Macaroni and Cheese with canned bacon, it would go back. I wouldn't care if it was Olive Garden (a step above dog food) - that stuff looks nasty.

We tend to be cutting edge on most stuff here in Utah.

Seriously, I go online and purchase my tickets three or four hours before the show. I end up in the seats I want almost every time. I have no idea why they don't do it everywhere. We've had it here for the past three or four years - it works great!

Well, you know what, i actually bet its true. When it comes to food, perception is often reality. If you are telling me im going to a 5 star restaurant, I'd probably go in with the mindset that the food is good and therefore, subconsciously, think its good (even if i was being served something that was complete ****). I assume these people did the same thing.

There was some study done recently, where they brought 20 people in a room to try two kinds of chocolate yogurt. A bunch of them decided that chocolate yogurt "a" was better and a few of them even said they liked it so much, that this new chocolate yogurt would be their one of choice. But it turned out that chocolate yogurt "a" was actually strawberry.

Yea, it's just a mindset thing. People got used to NOT seeing them, and sort of feel justified in complaining about it, and I DO understand the frustration.

That said, when you turn on your TV, you're opting in for a free product that someone is offering you. So, to me... that's a vastly different world than some jackoff calling your cell phone during dinner to offer you a mortgage refi.
