what does that mean to a surfing CEO? most annoying commercial ever or just extremely annoying? discuss

Feb 23, 2009 6:16 pm

extremely annoying commercial. It seems like a free ad for Quicksilver, as I remember their name, but I have NO clue which company this commercial is actually for.

Feb 23, 2009 6:22 pm

too funny.  i turn the channel whenever that stupid thing comes on.  glad i am not the only person out there annoyed like i am.

The CEO seems kind of put out to have to explain it to the knucklehead asking the question. I think he actually sighs before he starts his response.

 
Much like CNBC - annoying and of very little value.

F-the barely-literate "Surfer CEO". Here's a little nugget for the rest of us: The Dow Industrials are down almost exactly 2500 points since election day. Discuss (Or should I say "disgust"?).

Now that's change I can believe in!

i don't know or claim to. where do you think it would be? why?

Feb 23, 2009 9:50 pm

Your question is counter-productive. I only know where we are.....and why.

YHWY, 


I'd like to hear your reason of:


Why we are where we are.

The perception by the financial markets of impending (and already completed) socialist government fiscal policy. Next question.

Feb 23, 2009 10:15 pm

So in October of 2007 when we peaked and this bear started the market was already perceiving a socialist governmental fiscal policy?

I have the luxury, finally, of not having to play political defense anymore. I am now free to simply criticize and demand results, as were promised. It's liberating. 

Feb 23, 2009 10:35 pm

Ok, before this thread was hijacked...



I'll take any commercial over

1. the original Vonage commercials

2. The E-trade commercials with that gawd-awul 70's music

3. Any commercial starring Dennis Hopper

The worst commercials on TV are for GEICO.  Not even a close call.  Which other company on planet earth would use a Michael Jackson song, and a pair of eyeballs glued to a pile of five-dollar bills?

I don't care if they give their insurance away.  The stupid lizard, the stupid Aussie guy following him on the train--I'll never call them.

I also hate those commercials with the puking baby, trading on his blackberry.

AFLAC, now--there's another story.  I love those.

The economic tsunami commercials will fade away just as commercials for alternative energy, electric cars, etc. are ( What happened to $400 per barrel oil, Mr. Pickens, oil genius?).

 
Haven't seen any commercials on how to play the falling dollar lately, or the ballooning trade deficits.
 
The gold commercials on the radio are annoying though. It's fun to see people pour gas on themselves and light a match   with gold trading at $1000 per ounce. By the way, where was gold a year ago?

The commercials for FreeCreditReport.com - I don't know who the evil mind is who came up with those annoying songs is, but I would like them tried as a war criminal. And if I ever see that goofy guy with the guitar walking down the street, I would happily take jail time for a couple good punches to his face.
