And so they start

Thanksgiving isn’t quite here, yet it’s almost Christmas.
And, almost Christmas means commercials.
You know the ones. The ones for jewelry.
The ones that make me want to gag.
Don’t get me wrong, of course, there are some nice things out there. But the commercials? I’m so over them.
Waking up at 2am rocking a baby and presented with a watch? Hmmm. So she knows it’s 2am?
Being scared of a lightning storm and your man telling you “I will always be here for you” in the most seductive of voices? Then presenting her with a necklace? Blah.
Do these commercials work? Not for this momma!
Then again, I guess they are geared at men. Men thinking they are going to get lucky if they buy their significant other some jewelry? Maybe that’s it.
Side note: Do you think the music in the ads for “male performance” sound a little “baowm-chika-baow-wow?

  1. yes, I'm w/ you on the male ads and the jewelry. Those commercials are terrible. If Alex gave me a necklace when I was up with his baby at 2 am I would probably choke him with it. I also really hate the Publix Thanksgiving commercials.

  2. Usually, I can tune things out pretty well, but I absolutely HATE the GAP ads. I don't know who comes up with those ideas for them, but I'd like to smack whoever it is upside the head.

  3. HAHAHA, I was just gagging on these commercials last night! If I have to hear "Every Kiss Begins with Kayyyyyy" one more time, I might scream. 🙂

  4. These commercials don't work for me, either, especially because they're usually for a totally tacky jewellery store with horrible jewellery! Me, I just want to meet Edward Cullen… I mean, whoa… did I say that out loud? 😉

  5. I was going to say the exact same thing as Cara! Those darn Kay's commercials are the worst! They are so lame!

  6. Haha, you are so funny, but I agree not the best commercials.

    Have a wonderful week.

  7. LMAO! Thank goodness for dvr. I never watch commercials!

  8. Too funny. I am also over the fact that my son can recite everybody's slogan already.

    I just giggled imagining you at the computer sounding out "baowm-chika-baow-wow".

  10. I specifically told Sean to NEVER buy me jewelery that is in a commercial. I don't want swirly heart pendants or bonds of love necklaces or whatever they are called! To me that shows NO imaginative thought by a man at all.

    My (least) favorite Christmas commercials are the ones for BMW or Mercedes. Really – who goes and buys a $75,000 car and does NOT ask their significant other???

  11. I am sooooo over the jewelry commercials. OVER them. They annoy me so much- especially the ones that imply that a "good" man will buy a woman jewelry for the holidays. Um…no.

  12. Yep, over them here too!!! I am actually over anything Christmas right now since it is not even Thanksgiving yet! We have a neighbor that Has already decorated for Christmas inside and out! GAG!!!! Seriously, what happened to being THANKFUL????

  13. I HATE those jewelry commercials! I remember last year the Jane Seymour Open Heart necklace and thought it was AWFUL.. guess who got it for Christmas as I tried to stifle my laughter?? My MIL. Too bad she doesn't really have an open heart 🙂

  14. Definitely geared towards desperate men who can't think of a gift on their own!
    On a completely unrelated note, I used to babysit for a three year old who would pretend to "read me a book" (she would just make up stories and turn the pages. And once while she was doing this she "read" from her book "Bow chicka wow wow!" I always wondered where she got this… perhaps from a jewelry commercial!

  15. Now I'm going to have to pay more attention to these commercials!!!

  16. Hahahaha I'm feeling the SAAAAME way! I've been only watching the DVR now. Fast forward through all the jewelry & Toys R Us commercials.

  17. Those commercials are terrible….especially when they advertise the PRICE! Come on! Who wants to show off their necklace or bracelet or earrings their hubby got at the Black Friday sale for super cheap? I am all about saving money, using coupons and sales, but jewelry is a private matter.

  18. haha that one with the lighting – was just on before i came here!!

    totally lame. totally.

  19. I agree I can't stand all those commercials and I would rather have much more stuff then jewelry!! I think they are starting to notice that not many women want jewelry anymore!!!

  20. I hate these commercials too!!! My least favorite one was the one when the woman sneaks downstairs peaks at her present…sneaks back upstairs and then pumps her fist and whispers YESSSSSSssss.

    It drives me nuts

  21. So cheesy! Definitely geared for men since women don't buy the jewelry!

  22. I think I'm the only one of my kind b/c they don't really bother me. But then again, I never watch commercials. I've only seen the lightening one but I kinda liked that one.

    But I agree that they are geared towards men though. Because I'd definitely pick bigger items if it were geared towards a female 🙂

  23. You nailed it on the head with the geared to men thing. Every woman I know is like PLEASE DON'T GET ME A TWISTY SHITTY DIAMOND NECKLACE THAT IS FOR A GRANDMA.

  24. I was going to blog about these too – they drive me insane.

    Thunder…hold me…I'll never let go…

    (rolling eyes).

  25. LOL>………for sure….
    Apparently they are geared towards men…….men thinking they can get lucky in 'all' circumstances…….
