Annoying Commercial

I’m annoyed everytime Tanya Roberts, the former Bond girl, comes on my radio.

No matter what radio station you tune to, you’re likely to hear her “pretend” interview with the show host, chatting it up about Consolidated Resorts. The host obviously has a script and she knows what they’re going to say before they say it. The worst part it even sounds that way to every listener, not just someone who’s in the business. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against commercials, they pay my salary. This commercial in particular just grates on me.

WTAM in Cleveland isn’t immune to the ads. Bob Frantz does one. I normally don’t even turn on the TV in the morning. I just turn on the radio and listen to him and the newscasts. I think of it as part of my preparations for work each day.

Even though I think Bob has a quality show, I shriek everytime I hear this canned commercial. Even Coast-To-Coast host George Noory isn’t above doing the interview with the raspy voice former Charlie’s Angels actress. I was going to mention that she sounds like she smokes a pack of cigarettes every day but I decided not to do so.

I also hate the Vermont Teddy Bear commercials that you can just will predict will start popping up on the radio near Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day, Easter, Christmas or any other holiday. They’re also annoying.

One last thing, apparently Tanya Roberts isn’t the only star who’s pitching for Consolidated Resorts, you can also add Alan Thicke, David Faustino and comedian George Wallace to the list. Anything to pay the rent…
