Most Overused Advertising ClichesExperts say that the average person is exposed to about 3,000 advertisements every day. With that many advertisements out there, it is no surprise that advertisers have a hard time coming up with something new. It seems that many advertisers out there have completely given up on being original and are simply recycling the same old ads. This list is a collection of the cliches that advertisers keep on throwing in their ads.
The Top TenXW
There are at least 50 ads on tv right now that have this on it
yes, I hear that on every commercial - Razor79
Oh. So if I order this piece of crap now I can get more crap. ? Wow "cool"
But wait you can get a second super talker for ONLY 39.99V4 Comments
There is actually a point behind it, though. Science shows that is you have a, say, 5 dollar product, and sell it for 4.99, (Or 4.95 if you live in a country where the penny no longer exists), you will thinks it's a cheaper price
These ones are great. You watch a 60 second commercial and when it is over, you have no idea what it is that you are supposed to buy.
Imagine a short philosophical art piece, where Tarkovsky-esque cinematography shows a man running into a blinding light, while narration tells us about the horrors of the world currently happening, and asks us the questions, "How would you hide from the disaster you are in the process of making? How can you escape the utter calamity, the hysteria outside? "
Now imagine that as a Dunkin Donuts commercial. Trust me, it's gonna get made one day. Just you wait. - ArchAces
it is fraud and false advertising which are both criminal acts - moose4life19
Thank you! Those commercials are not cute at all! They're annoying, especially the smart-daughter-dumb-daddy ads!!
These are bad because they all try to make you laugh, and think they are original, but the kids are just annoying. - RoBot214
When you put the tip in and she already moanin.
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
Isn't it on T.V. already? - ArpstaAmy333
Oh yeah! This simply means: "We're going to stop selling this in a few years". Well any product can be : "For a limited time". You can't sell something FOREVER!
When I actually want to buy the product, ill refresh the limited time to get the bonus!
You'd think they didn't want people pounding on their doors in a frenzy to get their product. Maybe it's a safety issue - "we don't want our employees trampled to death, so we won't tell you how low our prices are! " Give me a break.
Cheap ass way to make idiots buy it faster.
Ever heard of The Dump? It's a furniture store that probably has had four or five "going out of business" sales that I can remember hearing about on television.
It normally costs hundreds of dollars, but you can get it here for only 5 payments of $75 - waterboy51
For only three easy payments of $39.99.
JEEZ! Please, just put the normal price. And no shipping! Make it so the shipping is in the cost. And instead of $39.99 put $40.00.
Just because a company is old doesn't mean it's good.V1 Comment
You save money by spending it!
Is there such thing as a two day sale. I've seen "Two Day Sale: This Friday through Sunday" Can't these people count
Countless advertisers think they're being oh so original and cute and "provocative" by using this tired double entendre.
Ad�s that display the idea of �You get More with us� by showing a dog with 6 tails or an ice-cream with like a hundred flakes or a human sized box of popcorn with a weedy man crumbling under its weight etc
