Angry Trailers from HELL!

So continuing on the "from hell" streak..

Is anyone else getting completely annoyed with that stupid Sprite commercial? I think that thing has been on every trailer we have gotten since I started working at BBV a year ago! Seriously, BBV needs to update their commercials. Unfortunately, I get the feeling that if they got rid of the Sprite commercial they'd bring back the Lime in the Coke commercial...and then I'd have to slit my throat...

Do the songs seem to be getting worse to anyone else? Ugh..

Yes the songs suck, but just be happy you weren't around when they played Rise Up by Bruce Springsteen every 30 seconds, or when they went on an Aaron Carter craze.

I totally agree with you. I hate that Sprite commercial...it is soo annoying. And the music has gotten worse. Those trailers are really annoying when they put nothing but annoying crap on them

ahhhh!!!!!

Does anyone remember the trailer that had the crying baby for the aol quick help?? Or the coke "you put the lime in the coke, you nut"? That was not only on once, but like 2 minutes later, it was on again!!! after those 2 weeks were done a co-csr scratched up the disk and put "put the lime in this, @#$%*!!!" very clever. And, yes I hate the black eyed peas with a passion now.

It's funny because at my store, when the trailer with the lime coke was done with, we took it at back and destroyed it like the scene from office space with the copy machine. I couldn't take that one.

I dont know but i cant stand the hippie kids singing that stupid song for the Coke Zero commercial and then the fool proceeds to try rapping. I couldnt stand the shortened commercial on tv and then we get the stupid trailer and then it's the extended version...crrrraaapppp. the sprite one has been so implanted into my brain that i barely even notice it anymore, so later in my life when the trailer is gone that stupid commercial will auto play in my head. Wonerful. I cant wait until blockbuster just decides that all the planning and production of these retarded trailers just isnt worth the money they get from coke and whoever else and we just have to watch Benji: Off the Leash over and over. i'd take that any day.

We never had a coke zero commercial. What is the code for your trailer? I heard if you put in different codes you get different stuff. I want the stuff from a hispanic or african american store for a nice change of pace. Our code is like 1231 or 1321.

The Derek Jeter / Tiger Woods ESRB ratings ads have been there at least five years. The Sprite ad is nothing.

"Rise Up" is probably near the top of worst atrocities. Lime in the Coke was awful, as well as the Nick at Nite ads where they would overdub old sitcoms with "new" dialogue. And there's been a lot, a LOT of shit that I've repressed, so don't bring it up.
