It used to be that when a company embarked upon a TV ad campaign they would 
produce several spots, and have them rotated.

These days advertisers seem to usually produce only a single spot, and repeat 
it ad infinitum. Perhaps this is because of increased production costs, but 
it certainly is annoying, to the point where I would not purchase the product 
even if I desparately needed it.
