    Annoying Activia Commercial

    Keeps popping up in every thread with sound. It's set with no sound but plays with sound anyway. I have to unmute it and mute it again. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Many of the ads on here are retargeted, which simply means that you visited some site (maybe there's?) and didn't make a purchase, so now they are advertising to you to try to get you back. If you clear your cookies it may fix the problem. A lot of companies do that because it is a cheap way of advertising to people that have shown an interest in your product before.

    I don't get the ad. But what's not to like about Jamie Lee Curtis on the subject of pooping?

    Re: Annoying Activia Commercial

    ok, i had to pick between cf or internet sports radio to get me through work, cause I can't use both now. Even when you mute it, it comes right back on in 30 seconds.

    Re: Annoying Activia Commercial

    I'm getting the ad too and it is annoying as hell. I'm not having any luck disabling the sound on the ad, so I am stuck just muting my computer entirely.

    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    I just went to the Activia website and sent them an email saying I didn't like their add and am now looking for an alternative to their product.
