Most Anoying Commercials!

1. Jack N' The Box Philly Steak
2. Carls Jr. (Who had the bright Idea to zoom in on someones mouth when they are eating and smacking their lips)
3. "The Truth" anti smoking commercials
4. "More Harmless Than We Thought" pot commercials!
5. "Can Ya Hear Me now?"

Anymore?

The Truth and marijuana commercials are indeed irritating but the most annoying commercial that is currently airing in my neck of the woods is that ARGH:

"I can do anything better than...." Tide with bleach vs. Oxyknockoff detergent commercial.

My ears bleed every time I hear it.

I don't think we'll be seeing him for a long time.

Everytime I hear this commercial I swear it is Hank Hill from King of The Hill, singing!

If he was still doing his thing like the original commercials, I bet “Kin you hear me now?” would be number 1 with a bullet.

And nobody mentions Carrot Top???

Those Bass ale commercials. I keep wishing when ever the one with the guy talking about his get out of Nebraska shirt comes on someone will appear in the background with a baseball bat and crack him over the skull with it.

Here in Lafayette IN, there are 2 local sets that drive me crazy! Bob Rhorman cars. He's the local car dealer, and because his last name is pronounced roar-man, he thinks it's funny to say it "Bob Roooooaaaaarrrman" and have a lion as his logo. VERY irritating. The other ones (which admittedly, I haven't seen one in a while) are CD Land commercials. I can't even describe the awfulness.

The Celine Dion Chrysler and Randy Newman Ford commericals are the absolute worse. It's bad enough that I may just never ever buy a Chrysler or Ford automobile, just to spite them.

I don't pay any attention to commercials, but some are just so irritating that one can't help it.

I'll go with the old stand-by, the "Zoom Zoom" kid. Man, I'd like to give him the beats.

Progressive Insurance probably has the most unbearable music of any commercial.

Additionally, he's quite a scary-looking man.

The only truth commercial ad I like is the Project S.C.U.M. one because I just think that's hilarious if a cigarette company actually came up with a marketing campaign like that.

Dudes... you HAVE to encode this roarman commercials in for us to watch.

There's a hilarious local one in Spokane for the "carpet barn" which consists of two women running around moving carpet, doing standard slapstick fare. In one part, a forklift runs over the foot of one of the women. However, it's of course fake. It's a close up of an empty shoe getting run over. The shoe is obviously empty because it bounces when it gets run over.

Have you seen those ones with the guy who wants to teach you how to have the goverment give you money? He wears this question mark covered suit.

Quiznos commercials. Good God, they are annoying and stupid on tv and radio. I'd like to challenge Quizno's to take their crappy commercials off the air.

Subway w/ Jared commercials suck, too. So he lost all that weight eating subs.. his 15 mins of fame are up.

I do enjoy the TCM commercial with the old folks home and the Rocky play. I all the time watching that one.

Actually, for a while it looked like Jared gained all the weight back. They were only showing him from the head up, and his commercials were toned way down. But now he seems back in full force again.
