Mothers Against Noise?!?


I just read about this activist goup, Mothers Against Noise. And MAN (pun intended) am I upset about it. This is the same kind of group that tried to have the Dead Kennedys not only banned, but jailed in the 80s. I don't usually go on serious rants, but this is an anti-fee speech group and I don't think a hate-group like this should be allowed to exist. They want to ban any music that encourages independat thought. They're trying to promote an Orwellian vision of Utopia, which, to me is unacceptable.

Here's the URL for their evil and wrong organization:

Commercials that suck

........and are aired too often in Canada

1. Kirstie Alley for Jenny Craig "It's Rainin' Men commercial". Now, I don't have anything against Kirstie Alley, or the song "It's Rainin' Men", wait I do. Kirstie Alley has seriously creeped me out since she replaced Shelly Long on "Cheers". I get a serial killer vibe from her. As for "It's Rainin' Men" it's a given that a heterosexual male isn't going to like that song. On Court TV Canada that commercial is played every 8 mins.

2. Whichever bank it is that has the stupid "Hands In My Pocket" add. Played constantly, it's a song with one line. Not a very effective ad, since it's on constantly on my network of choice, Discovery Civilization, and I don't even remember what company it's for.

3. Oh Henry, where the guy talks to his hunger (who, strangely, it a guy dressed in a tutu). Nothing against the ad in particular, but it doesn't matter what Oh Henry does to advertise, they'll always be a poor man's Snickers.

4. That Nissan commercial that plays "Dust In the Wind" by Kansas. It just doesn't make any sense that a shipment of new cars would suddenly turn to dust on the truck they're being shipped on, just because they were passed by a Nissan. It's ironic that this would be a Nissan ad, since they're known to rust easily.
