I mean really.. it seems like 75% of the commercials are car commercials.. when the majority of the viewers live in NEW YORK CITY and won't be getting cars any time soon..

And the shake weight.. LOL.. I can't even find the words to describe that.. is that product even real?

which one's the rocket science one?

You would think that for a channel owned by someone who owns a cable company, they would be able to come up with decent advertising

Are you kidding? I love seeing the same Radio City Christmas show advertisement about 1500 times per year for the last 5 years.

Add 101 dalmatians to that list now.

It's a demographic thing. They base it on the typical hockey(Rangers' fan in this instance) fans' race, salary, gender, etc. So , you see spa commercials,car, big events and so on. The only thing I don't see making sense is the "shake weight".. no clue where that fits it.

I absolutely HATE the Mercedes commercial with the kids celebrating that there is no school, but their dad drives them in anyway. It doesn't make sense. I don't think buses would be running...

At least we're not seeing any more of those throat cancer neck hole swabbing commercials any more.... Remember 2-3 seasons ago when they CONSTANTLY showed that EARL THE PEARL MONROE commercial wich that chick shooting the basketball? That was driving me to the brink of violence.

That Mercedes commercial has that terrible Mall Punk song in the background too. Punk used to mean something and be political and an anti establishment thing; now it's s just guys with mohawks, eyeliner, playing three chords.

I absolutely can't stand the Chase commercials with that husband and wife combo. I want to throw in pie in that guy's face so badly, his voice/face/attitude annoy me; no good Greg Grunberg from Heroes looking fool.

And don't get me started on Lil Bit O' Luck. That commercial with him singing the showtunes made me wanna punch kittens

Funny story; I went to the Garden last year and they had the Christmas Rockettes things on the big screen and all of these guys in my section started cursing and booing saying to stop playing it every 3 commercials. My friend and I turned to each other and realized we're not crazy, it's not only us.

I can't believe the amount of mohawks I see these days. The "punk" look is now accepted. In high school I was totally made fun of. Now those same type of people are now wearing the "punk uniform" because it's trendy... /rant

Touch of Gray!

Isn't that a Grateful Dead song?

Yeah, that touch of grey commercial is annoying too; you got the guy with the smug look on his face, the Wesley Snipes saxophone going, and the hot chick saying she has big plans for him..gee now what does that imply?

Touch of Grey was a crazy video though. I was like 6 and that was my first exposure to Grateful Dead; when they all turned into skeletons at the end it was kinda cool but really creepy for a little kid.

My MS guidance counselor looked like one of those skeletons. No joke.

No it's not just you, that had to be intentional too.
At the end of the day all of these products are selling sex appeal.

Such a stupid idea... how many people really want to look just kind of old and gray?
If you're dying your hair you obviously want to look young.
Also I love how they act like if a 48 year old guy dyes his hair completely, his boss will think he's 23 or something.

The "best" Rangers commercials ever are up in Westchester/Rockland with Angelo from Mayor Volkswagon. He's not even trying to act.

The second goes to that horrible Italian Restaurant one during the Keane/Skrudland/LaFontaine season where they go "Hey, why don't you film our new commercial?" and they all look at the camera in the most fake surprised way you'll ever see.

That hangover pill one they show in the city with the hangover girls is pretty bad too.

I love the just for men commercial, I don't know which part is better: insinuating employment discrimination or sexual harassment at the workplace. It's so amazing, so many layers.

For the past 2 seasons I've watched all the games on my DVR on an hour long delay so I haven't had to sit through any commercials/intermissions... So I'm not up to snuff with the current commercials...

The commercials I hate simply due to sheer repetition are the one with the girl asking the guy who he would save, his mom and dog or her, etc... Also, the Chase commercials especially the one on the ski lift.

In NJ, the annoying local commericials are Mundo Latino. Does the name have to be repeated 9 times in the commercial? Also, that hardware store with the father and son. Doesn't everyone in the world go to Lowe's or Home Depot?
