Makoura: Some of the ads on Hulu are my favourite part. Especially the medical ones where more than have the ad is the side effects. It would appear everything gives suicidal tendencies, which I realise is *** covering but still makes me laugh.

Yeah, those crack us up. 60 second ad with 15 seconds detailing the problem the drug addresses, and 45 seconds explaining all the side effects you get as an added bonus. I even recall one for depression which (as you observe) lists suicidal thoughts as a side effect.

We do enjoy some of the humourous ones too, with the GEICO ones often amusing. Like this one

or this

LOVED the Geico Salt n Pepa "push it" ad. "I'm pushing it! I'm pushing it real good!"

and those lovely advertisements through the programming

Those ads aren't all bad. They're helping to inform us on some of the dining choices for our US visit next month :-)

I hope your kidding, man the food in those ads looks atrocious, produced by machines in factory, none resembles the plants found in my garden. (a bit off topic I know)
