Wish they would get rid of that "bada book, bada boom" add. It's nonsensical, inane

and just plain stupid.

Am I missing something?

1. They will...

people are so sick of it, it will begin to hurt sales. Come to think of it, I don't know what they're selling.

6. What they are selling...

is getting people to book rooms at the 13 hotel brands Choice Hotels owns through Choice Hotels' website instead of a travel aggregator or hotel aggregator website. (Why? Because Choice Hotels doesn't want to pay commissions to aggregators.)

People must not be TOO sick of it...people reserving direct through Choice Hotels' website has increased quite a bit since they started the campaign.

11. And that one sneaks up on you before you can change the channel

It was bad enough the first time around.

3. +1 We have a public service ad that plays constantly on the radio around here

about texting. They have like 10 different people saying "Put the phone down". Drives me crazy hearing that after every
tune they play.

5. The Alfa Romeo (I think it's Alfa Romeo) ads drive me nuts.

First they had the song: "And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you. No I don't want to fall in love. No I don't want to fall in love with you." It came on every fifteen minutes all day and night.

Now they've replaced it with a new one where a woman is practically having orgasm while she speaks about the damn car: "If you don't want to fall immediately into love - look away. If you don't want to awaken a desire for blah blah blah - look away."

If I had all the money in the world I wouldn't buy an Alfa Romeo.

10. I hate that one, too! There's something creepy and unsettling about it.

Both the photography and the words, cars in love? I get rid of that one as soon as it comes on!

13. I Loathe The One With Tom Selleck.....

...Trying to push reverse mortgages on seniors, which in itself is a total scam. The part where he says "I know what you're thinking." NO, you don't. If you did you'd quit trying to lend credibility to this rip-off, apologize to the public for lying, and take yourself off the air. Forever. But, I know, he's an idiot Republican, so.....money, money, money!
