Most Overused Advertising ClichesExperts say that the average person is exposed to about 3,000 advertisements every day. With that many advertisements out there, it is no surprise that advertisers have a hard time coming up with something new. It seems that many advertisers out there have completely given up on being original and are simply recycling the same old ads. This list is a collection of the cliches that advertisers keep on throwing in their ads. Don't agree with the list?

Shut the hell up already! Hasn't your dumb-ass commercial gone on for long enough?
There are at least 50 ads on tv right now that have this on it
yes, I hear that on every commercial

These ones are great. You watch a 60 second commercial and when it is over, you have no idea what it is that you are supposed to buy.
it is fraud and false advertising which are both criminal acts
Thank you! Those commercials are not cute at all! They're annoying, especially the smart-daughter-dumb-daddy ads!!
Oh yeah! This simply means: "We're going to stop selling this in a few years". Well any product can be : "For a limited time". You can't sell something FOREVER!
You'd think they didn't want people pounding on their doors in a frenzy to get their product. Maybe it's a safety issue - "we don't want our employees trampled to death, so we won't tell you how low our prices are!" Give me a break.

Ever heard of The Dump? It's a furniture store that probably has had four or five "going out of business" sales that I can remember hearing about on television.
For only three easy payments of $39.99.
JEEZ! Please, just put the normal price. And no shipping! Make it so the shipping is in the cost. And instead of $39.99 put $40.00.
It normally costs hundreds of dollars, but you can get it here for only 5 payments of $75
Is there such thing as a two day sale. I've seen "Two Day Sale: This Friday through Sunday" Can't these people count
Commercials that simulate TV news alerts, game shows, etc. are way overused. Especially annoying and potentially deceptive are the make-believe "consumer reports. "
