Is the advertising on MSG just the worst or what?

No way, I think I'd choose the dealer.

Honestly, they could be much worse. At least they don't show that anti-smoking commerical where that woman has no fingers left and was doing the Wu-Tang clan salute and showing the stupid stoma hole in that guys throat.

There are definitely some commercials that get on my nerves though, such as the Matt Gilroy one (breathe easy play hard!) which I laugh at everytime I see it. There are so many car commercials because like someone said, it's based off of demographics and they think most fans are really rich -- show lexus and mercedes commericals and stuff.

I love that scrap metal commercial that someone mentioned with the girl asking her father -- absolutely hilarious how they managed to think of that one.

The geico commericals get really old really fast, especially when that hick plays the violin/fiddle or whatever its called and goes crazy in that restaurant as well as the other geico one where they all say goodnight a million times. Jesus that stuff gets stuck in my head for days and it doesn't even apply to me.

But some channels are even worse than MSG with these, like NHL network

Oh my god... I often fall asleep to NHL on the Fly and it's like brainwashing me all I hear is that same commerical played on repeat 1000000000000 million times.

For the love of god get some new commercials.

I for one welcome all cheesy local commercials, you have to laugh at the fact that somebody actually put effort into some of them

I have to admit for my first season having access to MSG, the commercials are pretty terrible. As someone else mentioned though, most commercials are. I wasn't expecting to be as excited for TV timeouts as I was for seeing the Rangers, so I guess it's not a let down.

However, I don't mind the Chase ski-lift one, simply because the background music is pretty chill.

The chase commercials are really the tackiest things ever

What button do I press for a massage.

I guess they're too cheap to hire people to make decent ads nowadays :/

I think the scrap metal one is the funny because its so retarded. Why would a hot girl have so much scrap metal. And her friend, "the ugly one" is calling out to her dad with the IO remote in the hand. You could tell that company is ran by the mob or something. Epically at the end when u see the two guys getting paid in crazy amounts of cash. My friends and i make fun of it all the time when we watch.

I think the worse commercials were the Continental Airlines commercials. The one with the Sturdiest would take pillows and food away from people on the plane. AND THE SONG THAT PLAYED. Just wanted to mute the TV right when it came on! I haven't seen it this season thank god. But last season and the one before they overkilled that commercial.

Now I need one for my computer....and a better computer.

I forgot to mention FinallyFast.com. That commercial makes adult film acting look like Laurence Olivier.

When the kid goes "my computer is finally fast....finallyfast.com!" I wanna throw a pie at him.

Top 3 people in Rangers commercials who need pies:

1. Finallyfast.com Kid
2. Chase Card Husband (Hate his voice, hate his attitude, hate his face...he looks like Greg Grunberg aka Parkman from Heroes on a lot of Happy Pills)
3. Lil Bit 'O Luck singing the "With A Lil' Bit Jingle"

Yeah... people actually make a living off this crap. I doubt it was a lot of effort though, they were probably told to do a half assed job because the company doesn't want to pay that much for it

The effects and stuff.. sheesh. Like that one where there's a mirror of that girl and she gives herself a fist pound at the end with a cheesy sound effect. The 1980s called, they want their special effects back.

If you want to see really bad commercials, leave NYC,

Then you will be able to view endless commercials where the daughters of the owners of small businesses try and look hot, talk like imbeciles, and tell us that their place is the best because their daddy owns it.
