Do You Detest Most TV Commercials?
from the well,-at-least-they-bring-out-strong-feelings dept
Just last week we were mentioning that advertisers were finally trying to make commercials that were good entertainment instead of being annoying and intrusive. So far, it sounds like they need to do some more work. Up in Seattle, a “reader survey” of TV commercials determined that people hate most TV commercials. With a passion. Quite a lot of passion, actually. Of course, since hatred makes people a lot more likely to respond, I’d imagine the results are a bit skewed. However, the article also reports that the one commercial people are big fans of is the one with the AFLAC duck – which is, perhaps, the commercial I find to be the most annoying. Seriously. It’s one of a very few commercials that makes me quickly want to change the channel to avoid hearing the damn duck quack. So, clearly, tastes in TV commercials are a bit subjective.
