Dear People at Audi

Dear People at Audi,

Just who in your marketing department thinks that making your commercials twice as loud as other commercials and the program I was watching would make me want to buy an Audi?

I'm sure they're patting themselves on the back in particular for the one that has music that starts off soft, then builds to an ear splitting crescendo. That one actually woke up my DH who was sleeping while I was watching tv. Now each time one of your commercials comes on, I have to frantically search for the remote to turn the tv down for 30 seconds until your ad is over, then return it to it's normal volume (otherwise I can't hear the show I was watching).

I don't know WHAT brilliant mind at Audi thinks these commercials are going to give me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside and make me want to run out and buy an Audi.

It's not a warm and fuzzy feeling I'm feelin' when your commercials come on. It's an angry feeling.

A very angry feeling.

In fact, I AM NEVER GOING TO BUY A STUPID AUDI AFTER HAVING TO TURN THE VOLUME DOWN AND UP ALL NIGHT LONG FOR YOUR LOUD COMMERCIALS!

There. I hope you're happy!!!!

The end.

  2. The Rally's commercials where they show some guy with dirty fingernails crinkling the wrapper so he can lick all the cheese off of it -- makes me want to bash myself in the head with the remote until I pass out. Not that I ever eat fast food, but I'd NEVER eat at Rally's.

  3. Odd that it was just Audi. Here on a couple of TV stations the show is so quiet you can't hear it and then the commercials come on and just blast you with sound.

  6. Many do this, and they all turn me off. Worst. Marketing. Ever.

  7. It seems like every commercial here is like that. I hate it.

  8. My theory is that they make the commercials loud so you can still hear them when you get up to get a snack or go to the bathroom...not that I like the idea, mind you!

I read each and every comment, and though I don't always get a chance to respond, I enjoy reading (and pondering) what you have to say. Thanks for your 2 cents! :-)
