Ads in general don't bother me - I understand that they are necessary to keep the lights on. However, as an individual with the Misophonia disorder, it is physically impossible to tolerate the Snyder's of Hanover ad campaign, where a person is loudly chewing pretzels for the entire ad, which comes on every ad break. I must cover my ears, leave the room, or take out my headphones. This reaction is hard to describe to most people, unless they are one of the few who have the disorder. Think of it like how normal people react to nails on a chalkboard, except as a similar reaction set off by more normal sounds. You could consider us as people who have the polar opposite reaction to ASMR recordings that some seek out; a reaction based in genetics and often linked to some form of OCD. I'd like to find a way to disable just this ad campaign, and will happily take ads from... literally any other advertiser.
