Some Things That Make Me Want To Scream



Everytime I go to the cinema I see this commercial... twice. There is something so grating, so annoying about the way that singer says "고비F가 말해줄꺼야" that I want to jump out of my seat rush out of the theatre and do horrible things to whoever decided this was a fitting way to advertise a phone.

However, this delightful musical foray into advertising is just the tip of the iceberg. I find myself plagued by jingles, with each season bringing a particularly annoying ditty to the fore.



Last Christmas this abhorrence seemed to be everywhere and did nothing except make me want to bury 2PM under a pile of Paris Baguette cakes so that the terrible music would stop and we could go back to listening to something more pleasant like the construction noises down by Gangnam station.

However even 2PM's efforts pale in comparison to what is for me quite possibly one of the most hateful pieces of poptastic advertising ever to spring from the minds of the demented executives that commisioned it...



Big Bang and 2NE1 should be ashamed of themselves for participating in one of the most annoying commercials of last year (if not all time). I'm not a violent person, but when listening to this musical travesty the red mist comes down and my fists start to clench. An advert masquerading as a full length pop song seems to be a little deceitful in my book and does little for the artistic integrity of either group involved.

At least Lollipop and Paris Baguette Christmas have disappeared (for the time being), but I'm sure as summer approaches that Big Bang, 2NE1, After School, 2PM, Girls Generation or another of those manufactured pop groups will be attempting to sell me something else in the most annoying way possible. Time to put my headphones on and hope that the dulcet tones 김현식 will block out all the nastiness...
