Envisioning all the ways there are to kill the Old Navy supermodelquins during Gossip Girl - normal or not?

Monday night at 8pm is a sacred time in my house.  People know better than to call.  My husband knows better than to speak, or breathe for that matter.  All my love, care and attention is devoted to all that is wondrous happening on my tv screen also known as Gossip Girl.  Why do I love Gossip Girl you ask?  A better question would be - what's not to love about it?!  Fabulous fashion, amazing accessories, shoes to die for and Chuck, ahhhhhh Chuck.

Now I realize that I should be PVRing it so that I don't have to put up with the pesky commercials but I really can't wait that long to spend quality time with my Chuck so I am forced to sit through them.  And which one seemed to be on a constant loop last night?  That mind numbing, soul crushing piece of marketing crap from Old Navy know as the supermodelquins.  I don't think I can put into words how much I hate them and their party cardis - I would love to punch them in their stupid mannequin faces, except that would just hurt my hand.  And yes, the Gossip Girl lead in was just an excuse for a picture of Ed Westwick - so sue me!

Check them out here and here.

Who comes up with these commercials?  Does anyone actually like them?  Seriously the idiot that came up with this ad campaign needs to give his head a shake.  Maybe they are memorable but they are also annoyingly grating.  There is nothing about these commercials that make me want to run down to Old Navy and buy cheap, badly made clothing... and just so you don't think I have some terrible bias against them, I loved their winter campaign a couple of years back with the Ingrid Michaelson song, I actually went and looked at the sweaters they were shilling with that one - so see Old Navy;  good commercial=customers, bad commercial=hate and loathing - you choose.
