things I think about

You know that Chase Sapphire Credit Card commercial where the wife - who has an annoying resemblance to Julia Roberts - buys the new cocktail dress and sends the husband into a fairy-fantasy-vacation-land, full of gondola rides and Frank Sinatra soundtracks?  And he's all, Yeah, Baby, we can totally use our Chase points and go on this awesome European, sex-and-pasta-filled holiday?  And then she's all, No, we can't... And then he's all, Yes, we can!  And then she's like, Dude, NO we can't because I used all our Chase points to buy this dress!  

!!!

Can I just say... THAT COMMERCIAL MUST DIE.  


Do you know what would happen if I spent enough credit card points for a FREE (!) ITALIAN (!!) VACATION (!!!) on a formal gown that ain't gots no where to go but Rat Pack fox-trotting across the living room rug?  

Divorce.  That's what.  

That wife's a bitch.  Period.

And that dress is fugly.  Exclamation Point.

  1. My sentiments exactly. There's a collective hatred for that woman in this house. We use that commercial as a metaphor often... mostly as just exactly what is wrong with the world! And, that husband doesn't exist - he knew the cameras were on.

  4. Couldn't agree more.

    Fugly dress.
    No European vacay.

    Major fail on her part.

  9. That is hilarious because Brian and I think the SAME thing everytime that comes on. He's like, "If you EVER did that... we would be DONE!" That commercial is ridiculous.

  10. HAHAHA, I always think the SAME thing when I see that commercial!

    I joke that the next scene of the commercial is cut out and it's of the husband slapping the wife and saying "WTF is wrong with you?! You used ALL the points!?!"

  11. I knnow! What self-respecting male is just going to give her a smile after that crap? And then...in the SECOND commercial in the series, she totally questions his judgment when calls to see if they have extra points to stay on their ski vacay longer and they are on the chair lift...and the bitch basically says "you idiot, you don't have time now, we are about to get off"...and he says..."no, no...I actually get to talk to a person.." and she basically calls him a lying moron. its awful.

  12. It makes me SO mad every damn.time. Good to hear that I'm not alone. She kind of sucks at life, that one.

  13. They obviously didn't consult with real women before filming and airing the ad. Because I don't think I know any lady who would choose a dress (no matter how fab, though this one is FUG) over a trip to Italy. Italy!

  14. I feel so left out that I don't have this commercial up in the Great White Northern Tundra.

    I would google it, but then, based on the comments, I would most likely get mad on behalf of the commercial husband. So I won't.

    But, thank you for the laugh!

    (PS. that dress is FUG!)

  15. Hahaha, I totally agree!

    Also, just think about how much you'd actually have to charge on the credit card to "earn" the Italian vacation anyway! My guess is that they got there because the wife was buying all kinds of other fugly stuff to begin with. She def didn't need that dress!

  16. I thought the same thing about that stupid commercial. I would have so much rather gone to Italy.

  17. I hate this commercial too!
    Sure honey it'll be okay. Sure!

  18. this is freaking HILARIOUS!! I think you just articulated A LOT of people's feelings regarding that commercial!!!

  19. totally agreed. i've always hated that commercial..couldn't fathom why she would buy a dress that cost that much considering the house they live in, i doubt they're going anywhere super fancy. and he looks so happy about it. um, whatev.

  20. BWHAHAHA! I HATE that commercial too.

  21. I agree with everything you wrote! That lady is also in Olive Garden commercials too!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I couldn't agree more. She can take her fugly dress and just leave.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I totally agree! I'm not sure who they're marketing to there, but I would take the trip ANY day!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thats the same woman that is in all of those awfully overacted Olive Garden commercials if you happen to see them. I'd take a vacation over an unfortunate dress anyday, however to the lady that commented that her hubby would LEAVE her if she did that, JEEZ!! My hubbs would probbaly react the way the guy in the commercial did LOL

  25. I loathe this commercial. And you're right, that dress is hideous!

  26. Hahaha, I am dying laughing right now. The first time we ever saw that my husband turned to me and was like if you ever did that it would be the end of our marriage, no you would be dead.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Could not agree more with every single thing about this post. Period.

  30. I couldn't agree more. I actually almost wrote this exact same post a few months ago. Makes me vomit.

  31. That lady was in this old Pamela Anderson show called V.I.P. It came on some crazy network like UPN or something. It was terrible but I couldn't stop watching.

  32. Aaaaahahahahahhaha! My husband calls her a biotch every time this commercial comes on the tv. THANK YOU for validating! :)

  35. I cant stand that one either- and dont even get me started on the ski slope one! UGH.

  36. I roll my eyes and yell at this commercial every time it comes on. It is SO ridiculous.

  37. You know what commercial I hate? The Progresso soup one where she's lost a bunch of weight eating the soup, and calls in on the stupid fucking soup can phone to thank Progresso. Then she can start "getting back out there" because she's thin, and starts hitting on the Progresso soup maker.
