There is this stupid commercial for the New York lottery. There are urban thug types singing "it don't mean a thing if it aint Badda Bling" instead of "got that swing." Then there are some Italian mobster types that repeat badda badda badda badda bling to the rhythm.
It has to be one of the most annoying commercials in the world. The lottery rubs me the wrong way to begin with. Add in the urban thug/mob element, multiplied by the use of the word "Bling" and the resulting magnitude of the detest level is approaching critical limits. It get's worst because it is repeated on both the radio and the television, and it get's stuck in your head.
I have to admit, the time that Caleb saw it on TV and repeated badda badda... with the Italians was kind of funny. But aside from this occurrence there are no redeeming qualities with this advertisement.
