Well, at least they got rid of the Apple Shuffle. I didn't mind the ad when the sound was off and the second time I heard it I still held out hope that it wouldn't be terrible. I was convinced that the ad was going to ask different people throughout the season so it wouldn't be the same kid screeching at me all season. I turn away and cringe every time I hear it now. It is awful.
The Cenex ad is only about 10 seconds, which I can definitely deal with... I laugh every time I see it. However this Cy's Locker Room ad feels like it is 2 minutes long and includes ear-piercing screams from little girls. It's not professional at all.
*edit* I will admit, I did laugh the first time I heard the little girl talk about her Cy Book... but after about the 4th time watching it, it got old.

Don't feel bad about the Cenex ad, they also play it at Kinnick during games, but the Cy's Locker Room ad is downright dogcrap. Children screaming at the top of their lungs makes me want to kill a kitten.
I received a response from the Associate Director of Marketing from the Iowa State Athletic Department. My request has been forwarded to Cyclone Sports Properties and have not heard back. They intend to switch the commercial a few times throughout the year, but gave no other details.
... and I hope they don't show that commercial again tonight.
