I swear if I see another one of those freaking fingernails on a chalkboard Heinniken (however you spell it - I can't even stand to look the word up) beer commercials with the glamour shots of beer bottles and the "don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me" music I am going to smash my TV set.

I know that I am not their target market so why do those ads air on everything I watch? I hardly watch TV but there those idiot ads are every time I turn it on.

I can't stand them, those ads. I buy every beer that comes into this house. Not because I drink a lot of beer but because I'm the one who does all the shopping. They couldn't get me to buy Heinniken. They couldn't give me Heinniken. Mr. B likes Heinniken but I won't buy it anymore because their ads make me insane.

Mo, on the other hand, thinks their ads hilarious. At six, he's a few years off from beer buying.

Who are those ads supposed to appeal to?

Six year olds?

Is there an ad for a product that makes you insane? Not because their product is a waste of money (read: floam) but because the ad is just so spectacularly irritating.

Black people/urban market. Hence the hip hop song. I've noticed a lot of black people in bars drinking Heiniken(or however it's spelled). I think that beer and Amstel both taste like piss from a rented mule.

Hahahahahahahah.

What a really horrid ad to play to anyone who might have a headache!

Perhaps they are just trying to give you a headache so you'll buy their product. I always figured that for an expensive version of Tiger Balm.

Do they still sell Tiger Balm?

Everyone's familiar with it, because it's been out forever.

Ad of beer
Hi Boomerange,

It is like a complaint from you on the ADs.

You could try to avoid watching TV,and make yourself blind when you are out of your house.

You could not avoid it,accept it.Same happend in HK of China
