Let's hope "Everything" includes giant bottles of Tylenol
Here's another "rather than write a script, let's just treat the audience like hard-to-convince children by repeating the same word over and over again, never mind that it will make it hate our store" commercial, this one brought to us by our favorite purveyor of paper, pens, pencils and printer ink.
If you aren't tossing something at the screen, or at least jamming your finger into the Mute button, by the third time some Please Die Right Now dickwad is bleating "Everything," take a good look in the mirror and check to see if you are the YouTube commentator who "laughs at the water cooler part every time."
For the rest of us- hey, Staples? We get it. Now, STFU with these brain-dead crimes against humanity disguised as advertisements. Oh, and BTW- I bet that I walk into a Staples tomorrow and within two minutes find something not included in this offer. Because I've been a patron of American Big Box stores long enough to know that "Everything" always means "Everything except these things."
Always? Yes, Always. Always.
