    Post your least favorite commercials here!

    I picked this up from another thread....

    You mean the one with the kid who whispers "Zoom Zoom"?

    That kid drives me nuts! I wish he'd find a nice milk carton to put his face on.

    There was a commercial that ran for a local car dealership (located in beautiful downtown Owego) that had a jingle

    "Gotta go! Gotta Go! To O-we-go"

    Not only was the jingle bad, but they picked someone who sang like he was totally deaf.

    Other commercials that I hate....

    e-Harmony.com --- the guy that started it looks like Mr Roger's evil twin. You know, the one with the Cheshire cat grin who looks like he just stole your credit card information? He's just creepy. He probably was an undertaker at one time or served time in prison for stealing women's underwear.

    Hair restoration commercials - they pick the nerdiest looking guys to do those (or maybe it's a side effect of hair restoration?) and how many women REALLY have a hair fetish?

    Any commercial with that Oxy-clean guy, Billy Mays. His voice can break glass and has probably caused many a dog to take cover under the nearest bed.

    Commercials for "E.D." medication --- you know, the ones with the guys whose so-called "wives" can't wait to get into their pants? The truth is each of those guys' wives look like Medusa and the women they're with are actually their daughters' best friends. Those commercials are enough to make anyone consider taking an oath of celibacy

    Oh!!! What about that commercial where the guy kisses his wife as he leaves the house to go to work, then parachutes off a cliff?

    Is that lame, or what?

    Do they get their mail courtesy of the 1st Airborne Division?

    or the other, equally lame one, one where the girl changes in the elevator then meets her girlfriend in a Jeep Cherokee and says "Let's go!".

    Where? I can't decide! Are they off to rescue hostages or simply going to the movies?

    I'm not sure if it's a bank or credit card commercial, but the jingle goes "hands in my pocket, hands in my pocket, hands in my pocket". My daughter sings it constantly.

    And the hair dye commercial where actresses such as Eva Longoria and Heather Locklear make that rediculous (as in deserving of ridicule) comment at the end "because I'm worth it". As if they USE THAT PRODUCT. Yeah, then right after they wash and condition with Panten ProV. :talk2:

    @Karl

    Do you mean the Viagra commercial where men and women are dancing and the song "good morning, good morining" is playing in the background?

    Any commercial that shows some actor/actress asking for "just 25 cents a day" to feed the starving children of Lower Slobovia.

    Any commercial about ED, constipation, bladder control (or lack thereof), feminine hygiene (not talking about hair care products...you know what I mean) or any other bodily function normally done in the bathroom, in the outhouse or behind a tree.

    Just about any political add from either side.

    What I really hate are the commercials showing the at least halfway hot chick running around in some sort of active lifestyle, and just as you're starting to think, "Hey, she's kinda hot," she says something like "...so when I found out I had genital herpes..." ICK!!! Then, of course, it basically markets how you can go ahead and have sex, even though you have an STD, and ends by showing her hugging her boyfriend. Way to go, slick. You nailed a skank with herpes.

    And I really hate drug commercials where they don't tell you what the drug does.

    There are really only a few commercials that I can't stand to the point I will mute or change the channel when I see them.


    #1 is that phone commercial where some ugly blonde chick is complaining about some guy putting her cell number into his phone after she gives him her number at a bar. Acting like her number is sacred or some shit. Its like what the fuck do you expect someone to do with a phone number, keep it written on a napkin? Why wouldn't you put someone's number into your cell phone? Its like do you want the guy to have your number and call you or not you dumb bimbo! I've never heard of any rule that its rude to put people's numbers directly into your cell before, in fact I've had girls take my phone and put it in there for me. Its by far the most retarded commercial I've ever seen and whats worse is they play it over and over during the freakin NBA playoffs.


    Other than that the only other commercials I don't like are TNT ones like "The Closer". They keep playing them over and over during NBA games and it annoys the hell out of me. NO, I do NOT want to watch the stupid show, playing the commercial 100 times isn't going to change my mind!

    :teeth:
