My wife bought that snot washer a while ago and she likes it.

I tried it once and.... meh.

You have to sift it through a spurtle.

We put the K in Kwality

I am actually going to buy some of those to fuck with her. I'll place them next to her set of Cutco knives...

Totally misread this comment... either way I'm not going to kink shame

Fire guy

can you fill me in on this "spurtle" thing that I am seeing all over hokie twitter all of a sudden? I didn't watch the game as I was out of town.

It's a crappy ad on ACCN. Basically it it some woman selling wooden spoons. Check it out on https://lucindaskitchen.com/

I always lol at tac shave because dude is all trimming his face up in his car and I'm like he's getting shavings all over his car

Dude also like "Imma shave and I never do that"

He's got two days of stubble at the most.

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

I could shave at 10 and have that stubble by 11.

I could shave on the 11th and not have that stubble by the 10th

How have we ever prepared anything in the kitchen prior to the wonderful invention of the slightly elongated wooden spoon?

"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"

As a culinary grad, I'm really wondering how I passed without it. And the sifting function? I mean, if that spoon with big ass holes in it doesnt make your flour super fine, I dont know what will...

Don't forget triburst. The brightest light in the history of the world.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

While not the made for TV triburst, I just got something just like it off Amazon for less, and it really is good for attics or any place where you don't care about looks but need light and only have one light socket.

It was not rock bottem? cause all I've ever seen are these commercials.

So yes, seeing that brand on the various A-QVC-N was a bit of a marker of society's demise...

It meets a specific specification, then was built by the lowest bidder using the cheapest materials that still meet the spec.

My brother in law watched one of those commercials and stated the army does not use that Crap.

I don't know about now but when I was stationed onboard ship, we couldn't have personal appliances like that shaver.
First off, there isn't outlets all over the place, every electronic device had to be inspected and tagged and an electric razor was just insufficient for the job required.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

Of all of the stupid rules that were enforced strictly, electrical safety was strangely not one of them.

Racktricity was prohibited, but any electrician would reconnect it for 20 bucks. Only had to re-up my subscription once.

The ships barber would mangle your hair if they had a hunch you might be getting pro-pay. One could receive about a dozen electrical safety stickers on a favor, most affixed to devices that were prohibited. You could cut half the divisions hair every underway with a pair of "electrically safe" clippers. As long as they had a green sticker and the sink was cleaned after, nobody would question such an overachiever.

Where's the beef?

An electric shaver on your sensitive parts? Have fun using that Tacshaver as a meat grinder.

Using a Tac Shaver for that job could give a whole new meaning to your signature.......

Tac Shaver, not Tic-Tac Shaver.

Boom Roasted.

What i don't understand is that all this crap is from the same company. But you don't go to their website, they have 1 per product. It just seems scammy.

We've watched every game this season on YoutubeTV and outside of the first game vs NC State haven't seen any of these weird commercials. We keep getting the same damn ACC that are annoying as crap. What are you folks watching it on?

youtube tv here and i got infomercials

Danny is always open

I'm using family login for Cox cable through espn website with ublock origin. I have yet to see these informercials either. Now they may be what is being shown while I get a 'Your event is in a commercial break' splash screen. I did get plenty of regular TV ads though.

YTTV here too, & I don't see any of the ads everyone is talking about, either. Quite frankly, as annoying as the ACCN looping ads are, I'd probably find Spurttles refreshing.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

Trust me, you wont. Not after 36 times a game for a fucking wood spatula thats been commonplace for about 500 years. The damn lady actually says in the commercial that it was invented in the 16th century! Its a fucking wood spatula!

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Not after 36 times...

So the 85 times that we had to endure that ACC spot would be preferable? I think not.

Youtube tv here and I JUST started seeing these ads this past week. It's crazy.

thankfully I don't see any of these ads

Then you'll never be able to properly spread mayonnaise onto tuna

I was about to buy that until my wife said you're drunk and just happy VT is killing BC. I still kind of want to buy it, but I'm also still kind of drunk. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@hokie_rd

I can't see any either. Because I can't see accn. Because I have comcast. I'm a LOSER!!!

Go Hokies

It does seem that they could sell better ads than these.

I mean, ACC fans eat chips and drink beer, like everyone else.

The Spurtle lady should be named Myrtle.

We put the K in Kwality

But then how can she remind Myrtle that it's a Spurtle?

I didn't see the commercial before we switched to streaming because our ACCN was having serious issues, but you forgot the power strip/charging station that charges up to 10 devices at once...

Yeah...the spin tower thing...also by Bell and Howell i believe. I got that one alot also.

Yup it is another B+H. We didn't get that one yesterday...

I was surprised that we didn't see Spurtle until the end of the first quarter.

But damn, they made up for it the rest of the night.

So in the Food Lion fight song commercial, what is it the tiny sandwiched are filled with? HULU won't let me rewind the commercial to figure it out.

I am a little disappointed that we didn't get the Food Lion and Bojangles ads back-to-back.

Here in OH I get the Copperfit ads but none of the rest. It's the same 3-4 ACCN ads over and over.

I want to know if someone decides the ads for the sec and the acc networks (or other conferences), and if its the same person/group. This could be an intentional way to keep acc revenues down vs sec, big10, etc...

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

ACCN, SECN, and Longhorn Network are run by ESPN.

BTN is through Fox.

Pac-12 is their own thing, and they suck at it anyway.

It would be in ESPN's best interest to get the best commercials and rates as they can, because they would in turn get more money.

I'm in NJ and I don't see any of these. Watching via ESPN app. I get ATT, insurance, etc commercials, and a lot of "the event is in a commercial break" screens

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

If they have Lily (Milana Vayntrub) in them, I wouldn't argue. Qualified. Especially when you see her not in AT&T attire.

Yeup. Qualified.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

I think the "this event is in commercial break" and the accn's "this is our house" ads back to back to back are the absolute worst.

Mix in about 2 seconds of the end of the packer and Durham ad sprinkled about randomly, and you've got full on insanity in 3-4 hours.

If you don't know what we are talking about, consider yourself lucky.

These commercials are seriously bad. Just makes the ACC Network look like bargain bin trash. It's absolutely pathetic that neither the conference nor ESPN could sell these slots any better.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

That's my take on it as well. I can deal with a shitty ad once a quarter, but every other time out? The exact same ad? We finally just put the game on hold until we had enough game time left to skip the ads altogether, but somebody had best be out there trying to sell that time to something...ANYTHING...better than the junk we had to endure last night.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

The value of those slots depend on viewers. The sales ads probably pay more than a low balled rate on some national brand commercial. Yes it looks bad though.

"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"

I have no idea how to even buy it. Please give me a option of spending like $10 to watch the game, but it is fucking impossible, so I go to the sites.

Can't wait when Bell & Howell starts advertising the Tac Sprutle. It's how the military stirs its oatmeal!

I'm just looking forward to whatever bullshit piece of merchandise they can slap 'Tac' on next to make it supremely manly.

Like, how can you not want your own TacHat to go with your TacSpecs, TacFlashlight, while driving in your TacVisor fitted car. And when you get home, make sure you have a great place to hang your TacVest and TacBoots before slipping into your TacOnesie to cuddle up in your TacSnuggie

I looked on Amazon and they sell the same type of light more lumens at half the price. Looks exactly the same which leads me to believe that Bell and Howell is just selling the same cheap overshoes stuff that Amazon does.

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

They can advertise anything they want anyway they want to so long as they fix those stupid camera angles, and keep me from missing multiple plays throughout the game

Is coronavirus over yet?

My biggest beef with ACCN last night is that the game somehow was playing as "Teams TBD" on YouTube tv. I had to start the game late after putting my daughter to bed and because it wasn't listed as a VT game, I couldn't start it from the beginning because it wasn't recording. I was so pissed.

"Teams TBD" was across the board. I saw it on my FIOS guide that way for our game and the uva game before ours.

Same with my Directv. I knew when and where to watch it, but still, how hard is it to program the guide when the games were set days ago?

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

We had correct listings on Sling for ACCN. Though they still had the cincy/Tulsa game on ESPN2.

I did not have that problem because I have it set to record every single NCAA football game, regardless of who is playing. I also have it set to record all VT football games so they're in a separate list and easy to find, but this way I also have a catch-all in case I missed a particularly interesting game and want to watch it the next day.

Unlimited DVR FTW!

I do the same thing. That way, when the schedule says "Teams TBD" like all of the games were listed on the ACCN last weekend, it still records them.

This is also useful for watching games that are on at the same time. You can pause one at a commercial break, switch to a different game while the ridiculous commercials are on, then when you switch back you can rejoin where you last watched and just fast forward through the commercials.

I also usually start watching the game an hour or so later than the start time so I can just fast forward through the commercials.

I mentioned the spurtle to my wife and she was like what is that? So I show her the video, she told me never to show her that again.

Y'all, I just made some chicken salad. It was so hard to do without a spurtle! I had to use a knife to get the mayo out of the squeeze bottle and then a spatula spoon to scoop out a bit more from the jar. Then I had to stir it with the spatula spoon. I am going to ask HokieEnginerd to please get me a spurtle set for Christmas. However will I cook without one?

Did anybody else keep hearing the phone ring on the telecast Saturday? Between that and the announcers breathing super heavy through out the game the sound has been terrible for all the telecasts.

I only got political ads for the SC Senate race. Had to google what the hell a Spurtle was only to find out I already have these in my kitchen.

Got them for Christmas one year from my mom. They do actually work better than a regular spatula or spoon for some things, but I wouldn't buy them myself.

No No No! these are not 100% acacia wood. They are cheap imitation knock offs. Lucinda is rolling around in here grave at the thought of you using an inferior product!

But his set has more than Lucinda's...... And it's more colorful.

*Spoiler Alert*
Lucinda has been dead the whole time!

Do you find this graphic to be true? That your fake spurtle can replace all of the items below? Like a meat mallet or...a giant fork?

I'm intrigued how Lucinda expects you to whip up cream into whipping cream using the spurtle instead of a whisk that she says it's replaces.

The meat hammer question is a very good one... I didn't notice that.

TBH, that bigger spurtle certainly looks like something my mother would have used to beat my ass if she had had one when I was a kid.

I tuned out a halftime so there's a possibility I missed it. I dont know if ACCN has broken the broadcast down in to sub-regions, but putting a Bojangles commercial on the air in the NOVA is almost pointless. I just looked-up their footprint in the area and although they have a decent presence east of the Potomac around the beltway, there's nothing until you hit Fredericksburg.

I was gifted a Tac Visor and actually really enjoyed it, until the extreme heat of the summer made the film on it bubble and peel off at the corners.

I live west of where I work, so I'm always driving into the sun. Certain times of year it's almost unbearable. The Tac Visor blotted out the sun enough but still allowed me to see other cars. It was awful, even dangerous at night though. It dimmed the headlights but also dimmed everything behind it to where you couldn't see the lines on the road.

But all it is is a sheet of clear plastic with a tinted film on each side. And when it gets hot it bubbles and peels.

I live 60 miles West of Syracuse. I get to see Bojangles, Zaxby's and Food Lion ads during the game. None of those exist anywhere close, even if I wanted to patronize them. You would think the ACC could do some regional ads, and maybe even generate more ad income. I'm pretty sure that Food Lion isn't counting on getting any benefit from their ad spend in upstate NY.

Given the choice between Food Lion & Kroger the missus will always go Kroger.

In my experience, the quality of Krogers varies greatly, but the best Food Lion I've ever been in was still no better than the worst Kroger.

It's all we got. Food Lion is less than a half mile away. Nearest other grocery store is close to 20 miles away, and it's a Wally World. Maybe 50 miles round trip for a Kroger. Love this rural livin'.

Agreed.

I live 200 miles south of Denver, CO. The SECN and ACCN commercials are the worst. Every Saturday is 8(+) hours of wife rolling her eyes at me every time the Zaxby's ad comes on and I drunkenly slur about how I wish we had a Zaxby's.

"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"

I may have figured out why we get so many Tac Shaver and Spurtle ads during VT ACCN games

Tac Shaver Spurtle anagrams to VT Later Purchases. They are just targeting VT fans with these ads. If they show them enough we will inevitably give in.

Shit that's a good pull

We could make watching commercials on ACCN a game (drinking or otherwise). There are a couple of ways that you could play.
The first is that everyone playing has to do the same thing for commercials. The other is you have a coach that calls plays and decides who does what.

Each commercial has a value:
Tac Shaver - 1
Tac Visor - 1
Spurtle - 2
The Charging Station -3
Garage Light Thing- 4
Any other Bell+Howell product- 5
ACC - 6
Individual Schools-7
Food Lion-8
Bojangles-9
Any other commercials-10

so you know it must be pretty cheap to advertise on ACCN, and you know who is watching the game. you would think lots of companies would be buying that cheap advertising. Nike, UA, Taco Bell, Titleist or Taylormade, video games, maybe Green Egg, beer, etc...

anyone have any insight into why companies like that wouldn't be buying up that cheap advertising? just not enough viewers??

No respect, I tell ya. No respect at all.

Not enough eyeballs on the screen. Companies want to make sure they're being seen by living, breathing people, and the ACCN can't be showing large enough audiences to guarantee a minimal audience. Only way I see ad revenue picking up is for cable companies to pick it up. And that's not going to change unless a couple of things happen....1) More Clemson games show up on the network, 2) More teams improve to challenge Clemson, 3) viewership picks up for some other (at this point) unknown reason.

Out of curiosity, for those of you seeing the Spurtle and Tac Shaver ads, what platform are you viewing the ACCN on?
