What is the dumbest advertisement you've ever heard?

I was watching a movie and this commercial actually suggested that instead of using air conditioning to open a window or put on a sweater instead of using heat. To save on natural resources.
I live in the desert, so I can really see how opening a window would help!?

  • its not just open a window, its open the window at night. And places like where I am, it saves A LOT of money!
    Lets see.. The stupidest.. Well theres a lot. I don't like the new tampon girl in all white commercial, I get what they are saying but shes so monotone it drives me nuts.. I guess thats annoying not stupid. Stupid is the head-on commercials. I thought it was a joke. But DH says not its real. lol

  • I love the car commercial.


    I hate the formula commercials that say whatever they just added makes their formula "more like breastmilk." The don't say that formula doesn't have 400 things breastmilk has. Big deal if you add 1. Direct formula advertising is against the law in many countries and violates the International Code of Marketing of Breast-Milk Substitutes (WHO & UNICEF).
