"Herding cows the size of shnauzers, but they're cattle"
That has got to be my favorite line ever in a commercial.

Niagara, you're not really missing anything by being far from a Whataburger. Back in the '80s, when my job occasionally took me to Houston, I ate at Whataburger a few times and enjoyed it; the burgers were flame-broiled like Burger King's, only better. Things, unfortunately, have changed. While driving home from the NOLA Roadfood Festival in April, I had dinner at a Whataburger in Biloxi MS, only to discover that the chain had switched over to frying their burgers on a standard McDonald's-type grill. I'm sorry to say that my burger ( the signature Whataburger ) was no better than what you would get at the Golden Arches. This is the same idiotic stunt that Hardee's pulled in the early '80s, and their burger sales have never been the same since. 


Interesting - we moved here from Houston in '87, and I haven't had the opportunity tp eat at a Whataburger since.

I'll hit up a fast food chain once in a great while - sometimes I just want some cheap, familiar something - I'll even do Taco Bell once every few years or so...
...but come on, you guys, just quit advertising some special item or other as searingly, dangerously spicy hot. You've never sold anything that has more than trace amounts of heat to it! I'm no macho eat-this-on-a-dare type, but when I want hot I want hot, and that just insults you and me both.

  The only time my family and I eat at a fast food place is when we are in a crunch for time. That doesn't happen very often as my wife is a stay at home mom and I work 60 hours per week. Fast food in general is expensive for the amount of food you receive. I can make the same meal at home for about half the cost.

Now, onto the topic at hand. I think that most FF ads are in poor taste. The ones I don't like are the D.Q. ads and the Quizno's ads. Very stupid. Personally, I am not swayed one way or the other by ads that I see on T.V. Either I like the place or not. No amount of marketing is going to change my mind about that!!!

I have been to Quizno's one and only one time and would never go back.  I recall how bad the sandwich was,  but not much more about the experience.

Just saw my other least favourite ad campaign, and yes it does prevent me from eating there.  Subway's "make it your own" five dollar footlong commercials where they "feature" people singing VERY poorly.  The song is annoying enough in and of itself, but being forced to listen to ungodly numbers of renditions of it off-key and out-of-tune, along with the really crappy "acting" job most of the people in the commercials do, is enough to put me off Subway for years.

Seems to be a trend developing here----bet you dimes to dollars the advertisers are taking a cue from Reality TV-----bring in a bunch of non-union basically local wannabe's get them to sign a release for a BUCK----throw them in an audition room with a logo backdrop---a casting director and some "13 year old advertising types" put them thru their paces for one or two days----edit in the best of the worst----------and for pennies in cable money they have a spot that they can run 24/7----even hit a few selected class A slots. You can take it from there and guess who the target audience is.

There ya go-----the 13 year olds rule on "Madison Ave" bring back the Mad Men and all their glory from the golden age of adverts. Some small houses can still do it but mass marketing has become mass murder of all sensibilities.

It seems that fully half of the fast food/junk food commercials have voice-overs by Billy West, most notable as the voice for cartoon characters Stimpy the cat and Fry from 'Futurama'...they give me a good laugh, but I'm not comfortable with them informing my dietary habits.

The most annoying, currently, is that STUPID Stuffed Pan Crust one. The idea of it is nausiating enough, but add that screeching, stoner-esque "JACKPOT!!!" and I want to T.P. my nearest Pizza Hut.

Sadly, they're all annoying - some are just more so than others.

Does Bud Light count as FF? Their "tail gate approved" commercials are as annoying as those infomercials they want to spoof!

TGI Friday's has a new, disgusting, turn me off from eating at your place ever commercial.

Three guys eating with barbecue sauce all over their face.

Very appetizing.

You got to love those Burger King commercials with the Burger King dude, that dude cracks me up, exspecially the one where he wakes people up in the middle of a dream. CLASSIC Madison Avenue genius at work in these ads.
