honesly i dont really pay attention to the commercials , especially if im watching about 2-3 thins at a time. but other than that i would especially the ”Free Credit Report.com” commercials. I really like the jingles (songs) that they have conducted for the commercial. Ohhh yeah, some commercials make people want to by things and some dont, like, the Burger King commercials it makes people want to eat a burger from Burger King but if is some kind of weird boot-legged exercise system thats the size of my pinky but is worth as much as brad-golina’s house well then i doubt that any one will buy it.but for me, commercials are a resting point for what ever im watching at that time.Just to get drinks ,food,or what ever sometimes even to talk but other than that commericials are ……blah. πŸ™‚ =:D
