TV Commercials CAN be fun


We watch about 95 % of our TV from the DVR because the commercials drive us nuts. I am in charge of Fast Forward when we watch together. Last night I stopped to watch the above commercial.. Bob said What are you doing? I said "admiring the ventriloquist dummies, dummy"

No, I did not stop to take a photo... but the next day I saw the commercial running and snapped it. Just For You!

Out of the camera
This is a commercial I pause for, I love horses and these are running out of our big screen TV... I often pause because I see a photo Opp if I were there. I mean what are the chances of me seeing this scene? Not everyone can be Montana Girl


Yes, Her Madness, the MadSnapper played with it in PicMonkey..

I haven't seen either one Hubby flips channels during commercials...sometimes we watch 3 or 4 shows at a time..

Mildred said...

I have seen that first commercial. Never have seen the 2nd one but it sure is pretty. Love the edits that you did.

Oh, I love it! One thing I love about you, Sandra, is that I know I'll never hear you whine that you're BORED. :-)

Beautiful shots of riding the horses!! And the dummies, too. I have never seen either of these!! Yes, we record and then watch when we have the time. It is so much faster this way and we can watch more if we go thru the commercials. But if I see something I like while forwarding, I always stop to check it out! I have a saved several commercial snaps of mine and plan to post them one day! I even snap nature shows to post and have several of them! I don't know if I am as Mad as you or just as Mad as a Hatter.

I like the ads for the Minions movies and will stop to watch them...I really think you would enjoy them.

I am in charge of the fast forward button, too!

I took the Santa Clause Parade as you know. The American parade football too. Where the images hang on strings.I found that so fascinating. I did find one has to go quickly as the director filming live on t.v the parade characters go fast from one thing to another.

I love this Sandra. Action packed. You did great with the different changes in the cowboys and horses. You do have patience.
You have too when you have to concentrate. Awesome Job.

Made me smile. I enjoy your blogs.

Oh that first one is so cute.
The Ventriloquist Dummies . Never seen that commercial.

Happy Saturday.

Your making us love your entertainment. You never know what you have up your sleeve next.

You are amazing. Hey check out the show Impractical Jokers - it is soooooooooooo funny!

I agree on the commercials. We DVR most of our shows so we don't have to watch the commercials. I get a little stewed at Greg when he falls asleep during a show and I'm forced to watch an ad. I think I should have control of the remote. He disagrees but can't seem to stay awake. Talk about your first world problems! I like the fixes you did to the horse pics!

Sometimes the commercials are better than the programs. As a child, I loved Speedy Alka Seltzer!!

Best,
Bonnie

I'm happy to know I'm not the only one who has snapped photos of stuff on tv! Beautiful horses, love your edits.

My favorite commerical is the one with the dog's owner 'teasing' it with a treat..saying who wants a treat, who wants a treat. The dog (I think a Jack Russel) says me me I want a treat, and it ends with something similar to next time no need to ask.

and of course I love the Geeko from Down Under.
hugs and happy Friday

my hubby is in charge of the fast forward when we watch tv together. those horses are beautiful....the black one is gorgeous!

DeniseinVA said...

Those photos of the ads on your TV screen are impressive. Love the horse one especially with all the effects.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Hmmm maybe if I ever watched TV, then I would consider trying to capture an image. Better yet, I can check in and see you do it, Sandra, plus you always add interesting versions. Thanks!

Ann Thompson said...

Commercials are annoying most of the time but every now and then you find a good one.
Those dummies are kind of cute and the horses are beautiful.

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I watch tv the same way, DVR so I don't have to see commercials! You got some good shots of these, love horses too.

We are the same can't stand commercials. We use a system called IQ with Foxtel. So we can record and the FF through commercials. Occasionally I see a funny one like the Spec Saver one.

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm thinking you have better commercials there than we have here!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I often pause to take a photo of something on TV. However we do DVR everything. Mark even does that with sports like golf and football. We dislike commercials too!
