Seriously, what the hell is this about? I have absolutely no desire to buy a laptop from a bunch of guys in overalls singing 50's hits. What happened to "sex sells"? Give me a bunch of bikini clad women singing Berlin's "Sex" and I am out the door, on my way to Best Buy to blow my wad (pun intended) on a new laptop.

YES! I hate that f-ing commercial. And it comes on all the damn time. Every time I hear the little beeps at the very beginning, I have to turn off the tv.

You know what's always bothered me about that commercial?

Shortly after the first guy comes on screen, the second guy comes up from right below him, putting his clothes back on. What the hell was happening before they started singing?

I would assume they were licking each other's lollipops.

Sorry, I couldn't let it go!

Palm Pre.

First of all they are ripping off (poorly so) Laurie Anderson's multi-media performance art schtick right down to the cadence and phrasing.

Second AAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHHHHHHHHH! This vvvv

You think the commercial was annoying, you should call up and try to order a laptop, or heaven forbid get tech support...

I think that the commercial is a success because you can't forget it and hear you are talking about it. The colored computers are not made for middle aged men. So, the commercial is not made for middle aged men.

Just like when I am in the car and some rap music comes on the radio. My mother complains that she doesn't like it. I have to remind her that she is not supposed to like it. It wasn't made for 68 year old white people. "Mom, you are not their target audience"

Yeah, thats the trick to advertising, getting people to further the product name. I was surprised to hear that the GEICO caveman commercials increased new customers by something like 40% for the company. And I've heard far fewer people say they like them rather than can't stand them. The thing is though, they are so catchy and different that people were talking about them everywhere!
