I do not like this trend. I'm watching NCAA's March Madness and cannot escape the constant advertisements featuring elderly people complaining in a vehicle. I get it, elderly people are out of touch and old and hahahah I'll totally buy your product because I'm not old and stupid like those people!
And then I'm watching Shaq be deliberately annoying. I don't watch many commercials nowadays, but the ones I do see all seem to be vying for the title of "Most Annoying On Purpose" (MAOP).
