Crazy Creepy Commercials What do commercials do anyways? They don’t make me buy stuff. In fact, I think that only companies who think they’re not good enough use commercials on TV. Although there are a lot of amazing companies who also use TV to advertise, the adverts don’t pop up as often as the ones that just don’t fail to make you run out the door.

Original, isn’t it? Some advertisements are totally racist. Like the McDonalds advert for example, has two black people come in and all the staff start talking about chocolate and mentioning that they have…
