Is there any way Bruneel Tire Factory's local cable TV commercial can air any louder? Please? Just another couple of decibels, so it would rival a Metallica concert? It's so enjoyable to fall all over yourself scrambling for the "mute" button every time it erupts on-screen, which feels like every 5 minutes during "SportsCenter" or "Monday Night Football." (The volume blast may only be on the HD versions of the channels.)
There are other painfully jarring ads -- including Cable One's own "Now Advertising in HD" acoustic-guitar assault while people raft a river -- but Bruneel's bone-rattling blast is the sonic equivalent of being gang tackled by the entire Chicago Bears defense. It simultaneously startles you into spilling your soda AND wakes your baby in a whole 'nother room. That deserves a trophy.
UPDATE: I find it hard to believe it had anything to do with my whining here, but somebody got the memo. Both commercials aired as I watched SportsCenter 48 hours later, and they were waaay softer. Like, half as loud as before. Wow. I hope that's permanent.
Good job! I feel like buying tires at Bruneel and floating rivers in Cable One rafts!
UPDATE II: WRONG!!!! Both ads are back to full ear-splitting volume again. It's awful.
