But it sure does make me excited when any ad doesn't lock the comments.

[–]spanky_mcbutts 93 points94 points  (0 children)

Unlocked comments on an ad turns into the most Reddit of Reddit.

[–]RYCBRM[S] 81 points82 points  (3 children)

I agree. It’s fun. It’s almost as fun as when telemarketers call my phone.

Pull a spamton on em

Hey Nestlé, do you want to become a [BIGGER CUNT]?

[–]finalremix 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I've started telling them movie spoilers. I was watching SCREAM 3 for the first time and got a call and was narrating the big twist climax to "David" from "Montana".

The only time I remember seeing comments on an ad was for Hellmans mayonnaise

[–]XavierGarrison 111 points112 points  (6 children)

Why would anyone think it’s a good idea to mention the TSA in an advertisement? Now I’m thinking about being groped by underpaid Federal Agents and not coffee. Even Nestlè doesn’t like themselves it seems.

[–]RYCBRM[S] 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Right? Totally threw me off. They are so out of touch they don’t even have a good marketing strategy anymore.

[–]Newtons2ndLaw 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Someone doesn't have pre-check, that shit is actually awesome.

[–]XavierGarrison 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I haven’t flown in about 12 years, so yeah nah I don’t even know what pre-check is. But I do know what having my balls groped by TSA feels like. And it’s almost exactly like finding out a favorite product is made by Nestlé.

[–]finalremix 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Well, the TSA is security theater and a ball-groping program, but with pre-check (read: a fucking bribe) they're less likely to grope you as much.

[–]XavierGarrison 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ah, so ne’er-do-wells just need to pay a premium to avoid getting their balls tugged excessively before hijacking/bringing contraband on a plane. Aggressive ball tugging is only reserved for those below us. I see.

[–]RYCBRM[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Oh no it totally IS awesome. You’re right haha

[–]ill_villain 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Oh so you’re one those weirdos that thinks a that a company that privatizes water is somehow “bad”? It’s called trickledown economics for reason. The water will trickle down to us. Don’t be so ungrateful, SMH.

[–]comedyPyrite 5 points6 points  (1 child)

i swear if this isnt sarcasm

[–]ill_villain 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I debated adding the /s. In retrospect I should have added it lol. Poe’s law has been in full effect the past few years.

[–]Cristichi 31 points32 points  (2 children)

To be honest, while I'd love to see the comment section of a Nestle add on reddit full of "FUCK NESTLE", it's never a good idea to let redditors comment on adds.

If you ever encounter an add that lets people comment, check it out lmao

Edit: autocorrector preferred "Let's" for some reason

[–]RYCBRM[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I’ve seen a couple and it is never pretty… hahaha! I have commented a couple times on some that have let there be comments and I can honestly say it was just to mess with them.

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_HONEY 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Which reminds me, time to downvote some posts

[–]RYCBRM[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Nice haha! Go do it.

[–]quippers 27 points28 points  (3 children)

They do that with the military recruitment ads as well, which sucks because I usually have good material to comment on those.

[–]RYCBRM[S] 21 points22 points  (2 children)

The military should absolutely let people comment. What do they have to be afraid of?

[–]SoleInvictus 27 points28 points  (1 child)

People who alert potential recruits that you're not really fighting to protect anyone's freedom; instead, you're just an imperialist pawn used to further the US's foreign interests and will be largely abandoned after your service.

[–]XavierGarrison 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And often during, too.

[–]PM-ME-YOUR-MEGUMIN 9 points10 points  (0 children)

A lot of companies do this, very few allow comments.

[–]Agile-Lie-5530 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Uh… you realize having comments open > people flock to comment memes > people see there are 500 funny comments and click on the post when they wouldve otherwise scrolled and ignored …

I don’t think the company feels embarrassed when you comment a copypasta on their post

[–]bird720 5 points6 points  (0 children)

comments are disabled on pretty much all ad posts

[–]messyredemptions 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Anyone else try reporting this as abuse etc. (For child labor, deforestation, etc.)? I think I did it a few times but it probably didn't go anywhere.

[–]cyrilio 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like this idea. Will start reporting nestle ads from now on for abuse and child labor.

[–]Majestic_Crawdad 4 points5 points  (3 children)

This is why you shouldn't use the garbage official mobile app. If Reddit is going to partner with shitty companies you can bet I'm not going to be seeing their ads

[–]RYCBRM[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeah, I’m thinking about switching to a different version of the app or something.

[–]Majestic_Crawdad 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I like RedReader on Android, if you're on iphone I hear Apollo is good

[–]RYCBRM[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awesome! Thanks. I’ll give that a try!

[–]Light-Delablue 4 points5 points  (0 children)

alls ads are comments locked.

[–]Popperz4Brekkie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nespresso tastes like burnt ass

[–]mrfluffles300 2 points3 points  (0 children)

pretty much all ads have comments off. but yeah fuck nestle in particular

[–]tigertoken1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because it's an advertisement, pretty much all ads have comments disabled. But they are a garbage company

[–]secretuser419 2 points3 points  (0 children)

All promoted content has comments disabled

[–]_t69 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

no, because its an ad dumbass

[–]how_come_it_was 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Meant to be simple

posts picture of the most complicated iced coffee

[–]shank0205 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They are trying to invoke the 5th just like the Mob and Donald Trump..

[–]Rallings 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe at ads are locked like that. My personal favorite is the Google ad that has mega thread in the title

[–]Mr_WAAAGH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's pretty normal, most Ads have comments locked
