the ads people love to hate

People just despise’s ads. There’s a whole thread in Yahoo! Answers called “Does anyone else find those commercials sickening?” Above is an ad from the online dating company in which a guy surprises his girlfriend by proposing to her during an eHarmony commercial shoot. So much for that candlelight dinner she was hoping for. (The one comment under this YouTube video reads: “These commercials really, really, REALLY fucking piss me off. They are annoying beyond belief. The people in them are a bunch of yuppie losers who like to show affection on TV and rub it in everyone’s faces. They all need to die.”) Read more about eHarmony over at Consumerist, including the company’s “vaguely creepy religious aura” and apparent discrimination against drunkards.
