Joseph A. Bank Complaint - Airwaves Pollution - Television commercials

Review by 4Gel on 2009-05-28
I know this is a little off the beaten path, but I wonder if anyone else out there is as nauseated as I am by the frequency with which we are bombarded with commercials from Joseph A. Banks. I've gotten to the point at which the minute I hear that syrupy male voice, I immediately switch the channel. At every turn they are hawking their sales. If they are running sales every day of the week, why don't they just advertise themselves as a mill outlet?

I wonder if their marketing people are familiar with the term "overexposure." Because they continue to invade my space so many times in the course of a viewing session, I would go naked before I would enter one of their stores.

Unintended consequences? They deserve it!

Thanks for the ear. I feel much better now.

If this is all you have to complain about, consider yourself lucky.

Not sure where you live, but we get this commercial on TV once in awhile.

These aren't nearly as nauseating as the enzyte commercials featuring "smilin' Bob." Just last night I saw the Christmas one..c'mon it's almost June!

That guy's voice does not induce purchasing, it induces coma.

I love 'smilin' Bob the chubby Santa with his sleigh full of confidence and a sack full of pride heating up the north pole. If Smilin' Bob was a my3cents member he'd probably make it onto my trusted list.

Boy, we have far too much time on our hands to be complaining about small stuff like this, then some of us even write a response.
Maybe we should take up ping-pong and watch less television.

Is Billy Mays the guy that yells everything?

Down here we have T Buff, for Hoffman Furniture Stores. He's so obnoxious, you gotta love him.

Same guy Boki, he wears a dark beard. There is a segment I think on Discovery that highlights him as a great pitchman.

Yea! I wanna see that show but somehow I keep missing it.

nstigator, it's because we are Noncomposmentis.

My favorite Billy Mays infomercial is the magic pen that repairs scratches on your car..it magically blends in to match the exact color of your car. I wish I'd thought of that!!
