I haven't seen tv comercials for a while now. At one point I stayed in a hotel a few days a week for work and I'd watch some network tv but noticed by Wednesdays each week I'd either be angry or depressed so I started bring a dvd player with me. I believe that was in 2018. So I have no idea what comercials play on tv these days.
Things are pretty much the same, if not worse for ads. Best to avoid them entirely, even if they weren’t trying to blow out your speakers by doubling the volume.
Here’s some examples of what you’ve been missing:
News ad: “A murderer is on the loose in a local neighborhood. We’ll tell you which neighborhood. Details at 11.”
News ads are made to leave you in a state of constant and perpetual fear to hook you into watching more. Just buy a gun and mute the news ads.
Drug ad: “Do you have problems with the ladies? Try our drug. Warning: Drug may cause bloody diarrhea, excessive sweating, shrinking testicles, weight gain in one butt cheek, pimples in odd places, and loss of appendages.
Don’t eat a meal before watching these ads. They’ll make you sick.
Lawyer ad: Did this drug cause …. Then we can make you rich.
Just ignore those ads.
Candy commercial: Boy in dress trying to get you to buy candy.
Boycott company for exploiting children for an agenda.
Any other ad: Uses sex to sell something monotonous.
