    Default Dumbest TV Commercial: Tortinos pizza rolls. <rant>

    Dumbest TV Commercial: Tortinos pizza rolls. <rant>

    "We're Dying"

    Whenever I see it I want to slap those two boys AND the Mom!

    It's not only dumb, I'm embarrassed for Tortino's for letting it on the
    air.

    If there ever was a TV commercial that convinced me NOT to buy their
    product, that's the one!!!

    It's Totinos. And they suck nowadays. They changed the formulation a
    few months ago and they are practically all sauce inside, and they
    added more spices. The oregano is too strong.

    Fortunately my grocer has it's own store brand which bake up crispier
    and still have meat and cheese in them.

    This is the only pizza roll commercial worth watching:

    Actually, they're in the refrigerator. Which is contrary to what the
    package says: "Keep Frozen. Do Not Thaw.". They're not setting a
    very good example.

    I just rewatched and noticed.

    That commercial is wrong on a lot of levels.

    Who is their target audience? Moms with remote viewing abilities? LOL!

    I thought it was pretty realistic, too. I especially laughed the first
    time I saw it and they left the phone in the freezer.

    I gave up most TV in the mid-'80s. We didn't own one from '86-'93.
    There are only 3 shows I watch:
    Mad Men and True Blood when they come out on DVD, and occasionally
    episodes of Southpark online. Southpark has commercials. The DVDs
    don't. The only other TV I watch is sports, and very little of
    that.
    Soon, I'll be watching a lot of commercial TV, but only for a few
    weeks, the Summer Olympics. I love that stuff, and it's totally worth
    putting up with the commercials. I may even take some vacation days
    so I can watch more. If there were a show on like the old ABC Wide
    World of Sports, i'd watch way more TV.
    I forget that TV exists most of the time. That's only bad because
    there are things on PBS that I hear about, and even plan to watch, but
    I usually don't. I'm sitting in front of the TV right now, because it
    doubles as the computer monitor...

    OK, I guess they did show them looking into a freezer at the start. I
    surrender! But's it's not a very realistic freezer though ;-)

    I'm sure the phone will be OK. After all, that's apparently where
    they store their video camera too!

    ok, I am wrong. I looked it up. So just don't razz me about it. And
    I think there was something similar on Friends - all these shows steal like
    crazy.
