I think we've all lost weight eating at Taco Bell, we just don't like to talk about it afterward, and remember why we don't eat at Taco Bell very often.

Locally there is a car dealer who owns franchises around the country, Billy Fucillo, whos tag line is "Its Huuuuge!"  Now there is a local pizza place that has ads on the feature a large, heavy set, Italian man who has same the type of sales style, (in the background is a few cars, each car has a pizza, calzones, subs, etc. on the hood) and at the end he says "Its Humongous!".  Seriously, imitating a hated commercial?

This needed a bump because I can't stand these new Verizon/AT&T commercials fighting over maps. The worst ones are the AT&T ones with Luke Wilson portraying Affable Luke Wilson. But Verizon's are just as lame.

Another "favorite" of mine is the new one with the chick who claims to have lost weight eating at TACO BELL. Jared Fogle and Subway it ain't.

I'm with you - both of those are annoying as all get out.  The TB in particular is such a ridiculous rip off of Subway.  Of course you'd lose weight eating more at Taco Bell - the stuff is impossible to digest.

Kay's commercials suck...I hate that one, and this one with the sign language:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CYbhuE6Vro&feature=related

Every time I see it I laugh because I want him to say "I learned a new sign" then do the fist-toward-mouth-tounge-poking-cheek gesture.

I do the same thing. When my wife and I watch it, I always do the "jack-off" motion.  ;D

Did you do the Snuggies, HDVision Glasses or the Retractable Sunsetter Awning spots? If so, I'm sorry.  :P

Hah, that's funny.  I've done the same thing, then the middle finger for emphasis.

I don't know if we should all be proud of scared that we felt the same way about those commercials.

Count me in as someone who has done the same thing each time I see this ridiculous commercial.

I think the our unified response is something to be proud of.  ;D
