If only I could fast forward through radio commercials

Taco Bell's Black Jack taco commercials have got to be the worst thing on both radio and TV. Let me get this straight. You took a taco shell, dumped food coloring into it and decide to market it like the second coming. You put some dolt in the commercial that keeps saying black taco. Black this, black that, black taco. What 4 year wrote the commercial? Even worse, it sounds like you are promoting racial porn, not that I am against that. But if I want to see black taco I am not going to the Taco Bell website.

It is even worse that the stupid U.S. Bank radio commercial promoting their frequent flyer VISA card. They have some guy who gets excited because of the supposed conga line in the airplane. Beyond the thought of it being stupid thought to begin with, the same guy pops a boner when he hears there is guacamole. Yes people, guacamole. WTF? Did some broad at the ad agency go to Puerto Vallarta and get naked? Only the stupid would develop such a bad ad. Only the brain dead would get a card because of the commercial they heard.

But there is a new one that has me dumbfounded. A small bank in the northern burbs of Milwaukee is promoting their high CD rates. They start the commercial with "WARNING! Don't listen unless you want high CD rates!" Uh....you are warning people about something good? That doesn't make any sense. Hell, you just made the dipshit who created the U.S. Bank commercial seem like a frickin' genius! Warning? Man I want to punch you in the nose for being stupid. The socialists in the White House- yeah I said it- have demonized banks for month before turning their fangs onto the insurance industry. They made bank a dirty four letter word. So you think starting a commercial with WARNING was a good idea. When was the last time you heard WARNING and then heard something good? Never, that's when.

Christ I need a beer.

Not true. Someone gave me a warning that Waffles was about to join my poker table.

My wallet got very excited.

It's called marketing, and it obviously caught your ear/eye enough to blog about it on some internet forum. Even though I'd never eat a black taco (or taco bell for that matter) I can't deny the fact that they advertise well and market to their demographic. You say four year old, I say genius.
