Is there a class of TV commercials that is more pointless and devoid of any relationship to the product they're selling than cologne/perfume commercials?

Just about any commercial is unappealing to me in terms of making me think about buying the product.  I "learned" when I was at work that the real theme is to put the name of the brand in your head over and over and over and consumers will subliminally associate that brand with quality.

Yeah, I know. A commercial doesn't need to be good, it just needs to be memorable. But "memorable" doesn't mean the commercial is memorable, it means that it drills the name into your head. 

That's the problem with many funny commercials--you remember the funny commercial but don't remember what it was for. 

Cologne/perfume commercials are just weirdness followed by flashing the name of the product up on the screen. I don't know if they really lead to remembering all that well what product they're for.

There's a lot like that, where the wife and I will be watching and then ask each other "WTF was that for?".

My least favorite in general are the pharm commercials.  I bet they get people thinking they are sick with goblinaritis or something.

I'd rather be preached at about feminine hygiene products.

A lot of car commercials these days are a bit like perfume commercials.  They show two lovely people having some great time ssooshing around in some car at night.  No word about horsepower or transmission or handling or the kind of rear axel configuration it has.

Yeah, but at least they show people enjoying the product. And showing the product itself is a primary part of the commercial. Normal people don't care about the technical specifications of a car, they care about if a car will make them happy and look cool. (Most on this forum are not normal people.)

Perfume commercials show pretty people doing things that have nothing to do with perfume.

They should be forced to reveal rear axel design, front brake disc diameter, type of pads being used, kind of tires standard on the vehicle, and what color is available.

One of my favorite car commercials of all time consists of pretty much nothing but lovely people swooshing around having a good time in a car, at night.  :)

Interesting stat, but how in the world can Cal be Number Two?
http://www.espn.com/nfl/college/_/letter/c

Well, Aaron Rodgers has been in the league a while, and they've got Jared Goff now too. QB is the high-paid position. 

At WR they have Keenan Allen, Desean Jackson, and Marvin Jones Jr, who all have been around a while as well. WR has become a very high-paid position.

Those, along with maybe Cameron Jordan (don't know how long he's been in the league, but pass-rushers make coin), probably add up. 

A lot of schools probably have more OL in the league than Cal, but outside of left tackles, OL don't make all that much.

We are not normal, in any sense of the word.
