The comments are based on commercials like this one:
Some find them amusing I guess. The rest of us find them mildly annoying. Or worse.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That commercial series sucks. We're supposed to follow the example of an idiot? So many commercials portray customers as stupid, especially males.
