I don't like most ads, however some of the very well done ones (Like
the Honda ads, or VW's "UnPimp your ride", even the Capital One
Vikings) are quite amusing, and I do tend to watch those. If it wasn't
that ads are played again and again and again and again and again
which kind of kills their "watchability".

Personally, I think if ads were better (Like the ones above), they'd
be more watchable, and less objectionable.
