A while back, I was carrying on about how they make commercials with the camera shoved in people's faces. And I complain about everyone talking in scratchy bedroom voices too.

Here's an example that covers both: (by the way, I'm not commenting about the product being advertised...just the means with which it's advertised, ok? No preaching thanks!)


  1. I think medical ads should be banned in general, no wonder our health care costs keep rising.

    I do dislike the in-your-face camera work and the going back and forth.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Since you've pointed this out long ago, I notice it ALL the time (so thanks for that).
    It seems it's mostly at the end of the sentences...and yes, it's all over the place. Mostly with young woman I think.

    (I never saw it as bedroom voice though!)


  3. lol I see what you mean. : )

    For me it’s what is being advertised that would play a big factor in how much I pay attention to the way it is being presented. If it is something like Skippy Peanut Butter…”please, get out of my personal space.” But, when it’s a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer, well, that is up close and personal, so I don’t mind so much the “in your face” presentation.

    I didn’t catch the bedroom voice, if there was one maybe I need to practice mine a little because mine is much more sultry and seductive. JK


  5. Not sure what you mean about the voices, but the 'in your face' thing is quite annoying.

  6. Your absolutely right! I also hate those stupid Viagra commercials where they are singing the Elvis classic Viva las Vegas. Is nothing sacred?

  7. See what you mean Jimmy ~ "In your face" is really annoying :o( ~ Ally x

  8. PS
    At least this girl is on a couch when she's talking....maybe it opens up to a bed.


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
