I love shopping at Overstock.com. I have bought various things from them over the years – cordless phones, a computer keyboard, little things here and there. Some of the deals can’t be beat, you just have to look for them.
However, I hate their new TV ad campaign. With a passion. I hate how the spokeswoman talks in this ultra-soothing voice, telling us all that, “It’s all about the Ooooooooo.” Seriously leaves you wondering what she is trying to pitch, doesn’t it?
I thought maybe that was just an issue I had with the commercials, but last night at dinner my Dad asked, “What is that commercial with the big ‘O’ for?” I told him that it was for Overstock, and his response? “Oh, I thought it was maybe for some porn company!”
Maybe that is their point? I don’t know. I just don’t get it.
