Comcast, Dish, and ATT Advertisements

Posted in People, Things at 7:30 pm by bsdman

You know what grinds my gears? It’s all the stupid commercials from ATT, Comcast, and the Dish network. I mean, people actually get paid to come up with this stuff? Not only are they not creative, they’re downright annoying.

It doesn’t matter if I currently use Comcast for my TV, Phone, and bookie already. I’ll still end up seeing Comcast commercials interrupt my otherwise enjoyable TV watching experience. Same goes for the other two – trust me I’ve seen television shows on all three providers.

In alphabetical order and why they grind my gears:
ATT – I see more ATT vs Comcast commercials than even political ads. That’s a hard feat to accomplish. The bad thing with ATT commercials is that they’re somewhat creative, but are so overplayed that I end up wanting to gouge my eyes out with a spork.

Notice this is a 4 prong spork and not an immitation 3 pronger.

Comcast – That guy talking drives me nuts. If I met him in a bar downtown I’d be kicked out for sure. But not before I smash something glass against his head. Oh I get the commercials just fine – Comcast says that you’d do anything to keep the comcast service. Bullshit. And get a new spokesperson. Not to be sexist or anything, but if you had a hot chick talking I’d be more inclined to not feel like vomiting.

Dish – You’ve really got nothing I want. Satellite is horrible in the different weather we get. When I want to actually watch TV (raining out) I can’t because there’s no signal. ATT has the uverse, Comcast has the cable, you have OHMYGODIHOPEITISNOTRAINING. That’s a technical term too. And your Frank “the ass” commedian isn’t really funny. He’s a tool – a tool with his own TV show. Joke!




All made by people that earn more than you do. Go figure.

And that’s what grinds my gears.

    You know what grinds my gears? The word “comcastic.” And I do use the term “word” loosely.
